Our Easter Hamper includes the following great goodies:


Bring your kitchen to life with the Egg Ramp, a stylish new way to store eggs and keep them in date order. This melamine egg storer stacks up to 12 eggs and takes up minimal space on the kitchen surface. Available in four great colours, this modern egg holder will keep your eggs organised and at room temperature so they are always on hand for baking.

Omlet started in 2003 when four friends met at the Royal College of Art in London. They designed a revolutionary new chicken house which made it simpler to keep chickens in gardens. It looked rather like an igloo and in a moment of punning genius that would define the next generation of chicken keepers, they named it the Eglu and an icon was born. Since then Omlet’s designs have delighted thousands of pets and their owners around the world through their uncompromising attention to detail and innovative ideas.


Vintage style combines with quality sound to bring you the GPO Attaché Case Record Player. The wooden briefcase is bound in leatherette making this turntable lightweight and easy to carry. Take the party with you!

The team at Rockit Record Players love music! The sight and sound of a record player makes them go all weak at the knees and brings them full circle to fond memories of days gone past. They know they’re not the only ones that feel that way and that’s why they decided to bring their love of record players to all of Australia by launching Rockit.

In this modern age it is becoming increasingly more difficult to find a good source of record players and accessories. We are surrounded by the age of digital music. Somehow, in a matter of years, the very notion of a devoted music playing device has almost evaporated as more and more people enjoy their music through their phones, laptops, tablets – even their watches!

The Rockit team think there is something special about having a machine that it dedicated to playing music and can’t think of a better design than the traditional vinyl record player. With its elegant lines, simplistic styling and of course, unforgettable and distinctive sound, there is nothing else they’d rather listen to tunes from.


Personalised and customisable printed Easter Egg Hunt Bags make a great gift for girls and boys at Easter. They can be personalised with names, special messages and greetings and customised in your choice of colours. They are made from  polyester with a drawstring at the top and measure 38cm x 30cm. RES Designs can also create a custom design if you have something in mind.

R.E.S Designs is a boutique online store that sells beautiful personalised and hand painted gifts – wine glasses, champagne flutes, beer glasses and beer mugs to name a few.  They hand paint bespoke designs and can also print unique and funky gifts – photos, custom designs, children’s drawings or artwork.  R.E.S.’ unique printed gifts include coffee mugs, photo gifts, crystals, coasters, mouse pads, ladies wallets, tote bags, keyrings with more product lines being added regularly.

R.E.S. Designs started in 2010, with the first online store launching in 2012. The business’  hand painted and printed gifts have a unique and funky look with personalised options available making them the perfect gift for someone that just seems to have everything.


Wash clothes wherever and whenever you want for free!

The Scrubba wash bag is the only bag with hundreds of internal Scrubba nodules that efficiently clean your clothes in minutes. It’s a modern and convenient take on the old fashioned washboard, the Scrubba wash bag enables you to achieve a machine quality wash in just minutes.

Perfect for holidaymakers, business travelers, backpackers or even for washing gym and cycling gear.  Plus, as the Scrubba wash bag weighs less than 145g and folds to pocket-size it is small enough to take anywhere. To reduce waste, single Scrubba wash bags that are shipped by free standard post are sent without retail packaging.

The idea for the Scrubba wash bag was conceived in 2010 when founder Ash Newland took a 4 month break from his job as a patent attorney in Australia and decided to travel to Africa to climb Mt Kilimanjaro with a mate.  “During the planning stages for the trip, we realised that with all our cold weather and camping gear, we would only be able to pack a few changes of casual clothes,” Ash says. “This led to the issue of how we were going to wash our clothes every couple of days.  After mulling over this issue for a few weeks, I was led to the idea of washboards – they have been around for centuries and they work very efficiently.  The downside is that they are bulky and still require a sink or bucket.  It was then that I had the revelation that if we could incorporate a highly flexible washboard into a waterproof sealable bag, we could change the way people wash clothes while traveling.” A couple of crude prototypes were made just days before leaving Australia and they worked like a charm. While originally designed with backpackers in mind, the Scrubba wash bag has also become the best way to clean clothes for people on holidays, business travelers, students living dorm rooms or small apartments, campers, hunters, cyclists, kayakers or people going on cruises.


LOLL beach towels are the latest wearable beach towels to hit the Australian market. They are designed to be worn to the beach or pool, at the beach or pool and home again! Each LOLL beach towel is one size but they will fit women’s sizes 10-18 as well as guys up to about an XL – the bigger you are the less roomy your LOLL will be (obviously).  However, they look GREAT on all sizes. Every LOLL towel is longer at the back than the front, so that when you sit down (or example, in your car) the backs of your legs don’t get hot, plus it means you will always be sitting on your towel with no worries about getting the seat sandy or wet. There are open ended zippers on each side so you can wear your LOLL towel, then unzip both sides and lie on it on the beach or by the pool. There are two internal pockets: one that is splash-proof and sand-proof for storing a mobile phone, the other for money, sunblock or whatever else you need. The hood keeps the sun off and dries your hair while arm holes allow you to access your pockets, plus change in or out of your swimmers without flashing your bottom to the world!

LOLL beach towels started life on a windy beach in Worthing, UK, back in 1983, when LOLL founder Lara used to go to stay with her Granny and use a towel with head and arm holes when changing on the beach. This great idea remained in Lara’s subconscious until she saw beach ponchos being used in Tasmania by a friend’s children (who loved them and literally lived in them for 3 days).  Lara thought, “hang on, why don’t they make these for adults?” And so LOLL was born, based on the towels that Lara’s Granny made and the ponchos the children loved. Lara experimented with a few prototypes before hitting on the perfect design. Then on a hot day in January 2016 LOLL towels arrived into Australia!


Wall clocks make a bold statement and don’t just offer the ability be a centrepiece in a room, with their large displays they are also highly functional for those wanting to glimpse the time with ease. Give your wall the attention it deserves with a wall clock.

The team at Purely Wall Clocks are proud to be entirely focused on one product! This is what sets them apart from their competition and the mega companies who sell everything and anything. They’ve taken a totally different approach and it is the customers who benefit. Instead of attempting to be experts at hundreds of different products, the team at Purely Wall Clocks is dedicated to just one item that they love and know a lot about. By focusing just on clocks, they have developed an expertise that has helped to curate an amazing range of high quality products. Customers choose from a catalogue of hand-picked products that meet the team’s stringent quality and style criteria.


The Afia range of blue and white cushions make a pretty statement in any room of your home. Accent a chair or bed with a grouping to create a cozy look. Linen fabric adds textural appeal and quality construction adds longevity. The Afia range comes in four patterns (fan, vine, blossom and swirl) which mix and match in any combination.

The team at Simply Cushions understands how hard it can be to find the perfect collection of cushions to match a particular room or setting. Just as every room has its own unique style, each collection of cushions should be individually selected to complement this style. That’s why it is Simply Cushions’ made aim to curate the largest range of quality cushion covers in Australia. The team wants to provide homemakers with enough colours and combinations to enable them to choose a unique assortment for any space. New Zealand residents can also shop online.

If you’re looking to get the family out into nature more often this extra large picnic rug is the perfect companion for those future camping adventures and trips to the park. Lightweight, waterproof and foldable, this rug is a must-have for the outdoor-oriented parent. It has from waterproof triple-layered material on back of rug, measures 2m x 2m, weighs just 710 grams and is held in a roll using Velcro.

Bask Picnic Rugs was inspired by The Wild Network, which aims to get kids outside playing, learning, exploring and roaming. There are many complex reasons why our kids are spending less time outdoors, but the negative impacts of a sedentary lifestyle are too great to ignore. But the Bask team believe it’s not just kids who need more outdoor time. Many adults can easily go an entire day (or an entire week!) without spending any time outdoors. With the creep of smart phones into our daily life we are never truly switched off from the world. When was the last time you unplugged from the world and knew with 100 per cent certainty that you wouldn’t be interrupted by a call, text message or Facebook update? The bask team are on a mission to get kids and adults alike outside and spending more time exploring the wonderful world of nature. A picnic is an opportunity to enjoy the best things in life. It’s an opportunity to catch up with friends, drink and eat great food, connect with the outdoors and let go of all the unimportant and stressful things in our lives.
