Christmas is officially here in 52 days. Where did the year go? It’s the season for celebrating love and happiness with those close to you – but it’s all the season for stressing over managing family holidays, ‘whipping up’ special meals, handling the in-laws – and buying the perfect present for everyone. Thankfully, there’s the internet and online shopping. MyFavourite.com.au is the perfect website for you to have all your Christmas shopping done at the click of your mouse. Check it out here.
What is the name of your online store?
What do you sell in your store?
We sell design-led unique gifts for men, women and children for all ages. We also offer a bespoke service for the corporate market.
How did the idea for your store come about?
I lived in London for 10 years and was continuously disappointed by the online gift shopping offered in Australia when I was trying to shop for family and friends so I decided to return to Melbourne and launched MyFavourite.com.au. We source products from Australia and all over the world.
What is your career background?
My previous life was in event marketing, working all over the UK, Europe and Middle East for large international companies. A small part of the various jobs was to source various gifts for events so I have a very good understanding of the struggles companies have in finding that perfect gift for their clients, staff and events.
Who is your key customer?
Predominantly, our main shoppers are women who tend to do the gift shopping for the family I think. Whilst we get a lot of repeat customer orders we also get a number of people looking for a particular item and find us through a search engine search which is always great to find new customers that way!
How do you make it easy for your online customers to buy from you?
Unlike many other online gift sites in Australia these days, we own all our stock so all items purchased are sent in the one parcel and arrive together, you don’t need to wait for the five items you ordered to be delivered by five different suppliers.
We offer a gift wrapping service and each card is handwritten.
If orders are placed before 1pm they are sent out the same day and we offer both standard and express post shipping and ship regularly internationally.
Do you sell in person or in a physical store as well?
No, we are just online but the beauty of that is we are obviously open 24/7 and available worldwide!
What’s next for your online store?
We have a number of exciting initiatives in the planning stages for next year and will be in Europe in January attending all the gift Fairs in London, Paris and Frankfurt sourcing fabulous new products for our Australian customers!
