Our story actually begins in 2008 when we launched our first online store www.fairyblossom.com.au. I know it's hard to believe, but these were the days when online businesses were few and far between and we were one of the first in the children's gift and back to school category. Over the years we have sadly seen many online businesses come and go, so we are super proud that after 12 years we are still in business. Pop over and visit Fairy Blossom and Friends at some time !
In 2019 it was a very challenging time for our family and I sadly had to take a step back from the business as I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May. The months that followed were at times terrifying as I was faced with difficult surgeries and then a course of chemotherapy which made me very unwell. It also broke my heart that my husband and two children (12 years and 15 years) had to endure this journey with me but their strength and love was incredible. At times I did feel beaten but now looking back, the experience gave me time to reflect on the things in life that I love and I was forced to evaluate the direction of our business.
For the past few years I have been interested in diversifying the business and making the most of my extensive knowledge of the Australian gift industry. Now that I am feeling well and strong again, I am so proud to bring you 'Luxe Hampers & Balloons'. We have chosen beautiful products from our Fairy Blossom and Friends gift range and added a few new and special brands for baby. We will be regularly adding to our range but feel free to drop us a line using the Contact page if there is something you would like to see added to our collection.
Our promise is that we will package your chosen gifts with love and care, and we look forward to hearing about the joy our hampers and balloons bring to that special person in your life.
Happy Shopping !
