Hello and welcome to The Gift Store Fruit Hampers,
My name is Louise and The Gift Store Fruit Hampers started as a little acorn of an idea when I wanted a special gift to show my appreciation to the wonderful staff at my daughter’s school, who had supported her so well after she was diagnosed with Type1 diabetes the previous year.
I wanted something they could share and enjoy, but as it was Christmas and the end of the school year, I knew they would be inundated with the usual chocolates and biscuits. I was also mindful that you never know what dietary requirements people have, with my own children I have a diabetic and celiac, vegetarian and gluten intolerant, and a vegan - yes our dinner times are a bit challenging but I can't go far wrong with fruit and veg!
I had also been so inspired watching an old friend of mine build a fruit hamper business in Sydney and grown to be in awe of the her artistic creations and the amazing beauty of fresh natural fruit.
So a little Eureka moment happened - the perfect gift would be a fruit hamper, it suited all my needs, beautiful like flowers but edible, healthy, delicious and something different and thoughtful, that all the school staff could share and enjoy enjoy.
Because of WA fruit quarantine regulations I wasn't able to use my friends company. I looked online for fruit hampers that were available in Perth but I couldn't find the kind of artistic fruit arrangement I had in mind, so that’s when I put together my own first fruit hamper.
Shortly afterwards a friend had a new baby, another moved home and again a fruit hamper perfectly fitted the joy and spirit of my gifting requirements:
They are beautiful and multi-sensory, make an amazing first impression, healthy, natural, different, thoughtful and show just how much you care.
Friends started asking me to make hampers for them, I started posting some pictures on Instagram, people seemed to "like" them and I loved making them!
So that’s how The Gift Store Fruit Hampers seed was planted and today we welcome you to our online store where you can purchase your fruit gifts.
It is my mission to offer you an unparalleled gift experience, with personal caring service across Perth and within WA, so you can be confident that you have selected the perfect gift for any occasion.
