Create the perfect gift box with PersonallyPicked.
If you and your partner, lover, best friend, brother, sister, mum, dad or work colleague share a relationship unlike any other, your gift should illustrate that. Enter PersonallyPicked, the incredibly unique personalised gift box shop brought to you by two Melbourne-based girl bosses: marketing guru Samantha Lynn and digital wizz Kezia Hallam.
In 2019, the best friends (now business partners) saw a gap in the Australian gifting market for truly personalised gifting options that allow consumers to pick the perfect gift for their friend or loved one.
Shaking up the gift-giving game, the besties set up PersonallyPicked which puts you, the customer, in the driver’s seat, curating your own gift box from start to finish. The gifting experts at PersonallyPicked source unique products from local and boutique Australian businesses and global leading brands for their gift boxes, allowing you to create a gift that is personal in every way.
From wine, beer, sprits and jarred cocktails and T2 teas, Koko Black chocolates, fairy floss, and cookie mix, to socks, reusable cups, books, puzzles, bath salts and candles, there’s more than 150 incredible gift options to choose from no matter the occasion. From fabulous to fun, they’ve got you covered.
For those more indecisive or in need of a little gifting inspo there are ready-made gift boxes for a quick solution. You can pick up a ‘Just for Him’ box, ‘Hello Baby’ box for the new additions to your life, or the classic ‘Sending Love’ box, perfect for those just because moments. While these boxes are a treat, PersonallyPicked says that over 95% of their customers choose to build their own personalised gift box – offering a gift that, as the name states, is personally picked for them.
Leveling up the gift giving experience even more, your recipients face will light up even before unboxing, with bright and beautiful personalised packaging and options to put their name on the box itself or adding your own personal card.
And of course, the best part is they deliver direct to your person’s door, with same day deliver in Metro Melbourne, and standard and express options for Australia wide deliveries. Border restrictions be damned, there’s nothing stopping these babies get to its new home.

While originally starting it as a bit of a side hustle in a part time capacity, the increased demand for online gifting services driven by the pandemic turned PersonallyPicked into a full-time gig for its founders in 2020, with people looking for ways to stay connected and celebrate milestones, particularly when they can’t be with family and friends.
Experiencing a 200% increase (yes 200%!!!) in ‘Just Because’ gifting to bring joy during lockdown, the Melbourne start-up revealed they’ve even sent out thousands of their favourite gift cards saying: “Sorry things are a bit shit right now”, proving customers didn’t need an occasion to send gifts to loved ones during lockdown.
Who doesn’t love receiving a random little pick-me-up from a bestie every now and then?!
“Customers are sending gifts not for any particular occasion, but just because loved ones were going through difficult times and as a way to re-connect and bring joy,” says PersonallyPicked Co-Founder Samantha Lynn.
“We have also had a huge uplift in corporate clients and businesses organising gifts for their staff who were working hard in lockdown at home, which is really great to see.”
“For all the traditional gifts of birthdays, new babies and special occasions, we’re seeing people trying their best to celebrate these life milestones that couldn’t be celebrated in person,” adds co-founder Kezia Hallam.
“In addition, we’ve seen a lot of gifts for couples who had to cancel their weddings, for the second, third or even fourth time.”
So whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or just because, show someone how well you know them by giving them a personalised gift box from PersonallyPicked. They’ll love it almost as much as they love you.
