Have you ever needed to convey an important message to someone in a big way, but sweated to find the perfect gift to do so? Maybe you needed to say 'sorry for being a jerk', 'thanks for being a great mate', or simply 'I love you'. Well, perhaps not surprisingly, there's a store to fix that problem.

Initially launching as a website in 2013, the retailer branched out into a bricks-and-mortar in Martin Place's GPO building — then moved to Westfield Sydney in 2020. The store is built around the concept of 'give different'. That means sourcing items that are unique and thoughtfully designed, so you're in very little danger of doubling up on gifts.

Products include knives carved from deer antler, hand-woven scarves and handmade resin jewellery from Dinosaur Designs. Gourmet goodies include wheels of Bruny Island cheese and premium single malt whisky distilled in highland Tasmania, which you can taste test in the store. You'll also find colourful wares from the iconic Finnish design brand Marimekko.
