In October 1999, Steven had just completed a four year degree at University. Knowing that he now had some extra time up his sleeve, he was brainstorming with his sister Connie (who is a Christmas season enthusiast), and they came up with the concept of opening a Christmas Gift Shop. Six weeks of planning and preparation work saw the emergence of a small gift shop called Hamper World on the 4th December 1999. Pushed for space at this time, many of the hampers were made in Steve's garage and transported daily to the new retail outlet.
With the support of family and friends, Hamper World has evolved from a small operation producing several hundred hampers, to currently producing in excess of twenty thousand hampers each year. Traditionally named Hamper World we have extended our services and grown to supply many items. They range from kitchen electrical appliances and White Goods, to Audio Visual and Toys; whilst not forgetting the traditional hampers which our clients have come to love and enjoy.
Both Connie and Steven still work in the business. Connie now heads the production and manufacturing facility located in Brunswick, where all the wonderful hampers and gifts are designed and assembled. Steven, heads the corporate division, using his design skills to ensure that the hampers look wonderful and venue displays always look spectacular. He is also responsible for the great Posters, Entry Form and Table card designs.
So whether it be a hamper for a friend or colleague, or a large scale Trade Promotion, the team at Hamper World are able to assist you.
