‘Hamper Life Unwrapped’ is a feature blog to introduce and give you an insight into the amazing talented and creative women behind some of our most curated gift hamper businesses.
What inspired them to start a gifting business? They share some of their proudest moments and some of their favourite products.
In our Featured Interviewed, we took time out with the lovely sisters from Just For You Gift Boxes, Alysha & Danika, to share with us their story, some of their range and what makes Just For You different from the rest!
Question 1: Tell us a bit about you?
We are run by two sisters who grew up, and continue to still live in Rockingham WA (located approx. 45 minutes south of Perth on the coast!) We are 100% complete opposites in almost every way, which believe it or not actually works brilliantly for us! We both have a long history of sales, retail and administration experience so with all of this combined, we really feel like we have a unique approach to our business.
Question 2: Tell us about your business?
We are passionate about sourcing local WA, and Australia made products and supporting small business, it is one of the first things we agreed upon when starting out on this journey.
We wanted to create gifts for anyone and everyone, for any occasion! We continually try to keep our ideas flowing, to give our customers fresh gift ideas all the time.
We like to provide a personal touch to each gift box we send out with handwritten notes, colour specific ribbon/packaging so whoever receives the gift can feel ultra-special – something ‘Just For You’.
Question 3: What inspired you to start your business?
As a new mum, Alysha wasn’t ready to return to full time work yet but felt the need to get the brain working on something other than “mum life”. We both were joking around one day about how it would be great to create something just for mum’s to receive after they have had a baby, to make them feel special – thus Just For You Gift Boxes began, and eventually evolved into what it is today!
We wanted to be able to make people happy for a living, whilst also being able to choose our own hours so we could still have a work/life balance – family is important to us!
Question 4: How would you describe the products/wares you use in your gift hampers/boxes?
Australian made is our number 1 focus – we refuse to ever budge on that! We always give each product we source a test run on ourselves first so we know we are offering top notch items to our customers. Where possible, we also try to use items that have little to no chemicals, are organic, or are vegan.
Question 5: What do you believe makes you ‘stand out’ from the rest? What is unique about you?
We believe in offering gift boxes that are unique, fun and something that you wouldn’t find in the shops down the road – this is something we really work on constantly and is very important to us.
Question 6: What are your Top 4 favourite hampers/gift boxes in your collection?
They would be;
- Just For Him
- Just For You
- Just Chill
- Just Home

Question 7: What has been one of your proudest moments / wins in your business?
This was a tough one, as we have had so many WooHoo! Moments in the past 14 months.
We definitely feel that moving into the corporate world is a massive achievement. Our tiny idea of making gift boxes for new mum’s expanded to something we definitely didn’t even dream of to begin with, its amazing. Another huge win is surviving our first year in small business! We had no experience in running a business, just an idea. We are so proud!
Question 8: What has been your experience so far with being part of the Hamper Life family?
Nothing short of amazing. Angela has been so supportive of us. Providing advice, answering questions, helping us out with the smallest of things and it means the world to us. We feel like we have not only gained a great business relationship, but also a friend!
Question 9: Where do you see your business in 5 years?
To be as big as we can! The sky is the limit for us. To be well known for our products and our philosophy of supporting the little guys!
Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions Alysha & Danika and giving us an insight into what makes you tick!
