Good Day People: A Crazy Love Story that Became a Gifting Sensation
Hello, lovely folks in the Good Day People community! We just wanted to take a moment to say "hello" and extend our heartfelt thanks for being a part of our vibrant and generous family. As massive extroverts and lovers of all things fun, we appreciate every moment you've spent with us on this incredible journey. So, sit back, relax, and allow us to share our hilarious, inspiring, and slightly bonkers tale of how Good Day People came to be.
Our story is nothing short of a good, old-fashioned love fairytale, with a dash of quirkiness. It all started during the very first lockdown when the world was hit by the pandemic. In those challenging times, we discovered a dire need for boutique yet affordable gifts that were gender-neutral, uniquely cool, and way more exciting than your typical cellophane-wrapped wicker basket filled with mediocre shortbread or an abundance of Nanna's favourite soaps (and yes, we adore our Nannas, too).
At the time, we were six weeks into our engagement, with no immediate plans to tie the knot. COVID had thrown a curveball into our wedding plans, leaving us with plenty of time on our hands, homemade sourdough experiments in progress, and a spare cupboard waiting to be transformed into something magical. And that's when the spark of Good Day People was ignited!
Our initial goal was simple: to sell one hamper a day in our first year. Little did we know that our passion for creating unique, delightful gift baskets would lead to something extraordinary. Fast forward to our one-year anniversary, and we had sold over 12,000+ Good Day People gift baskets! As the dust settled, we found ourselves not only happily married (with no honeymoon babies, mind you) but also incredibly grateful to our generous community, who have made it a Good Day for over 43,000 people around the world.
We can't thank you enough for joining us on this crazy small business journey, for being a part of our fun and vibrant community, and for making every day a Good Day for so many people. Your support and generosity fuel our passion and inspire us to keep doing what we love.
Let's take a moment to dive into the core values that guide us every day:
Quality Over Quantity 🌟
We're not in the business of churning out generic, mass-produced gift baskets. Instead, we're committed to curating extraordinary products that we genuinely love. Each item we include in our gift baskets are carefully selected to ensure it meets our high-quality standards. We believe that when you give a gift, it should be something special and memorable.Being a Force for Good 🌏
Our mission is to spread joy and positivity, one Good Day at a time. We're here to mobilize generosity and brighten days, whether it's through a thoughtful corporate gift hamper, a birthday surprise, or a simple thank-you gesture. We want every gift to make the recipient smile and feel appreciated, because we believe that small acts of kindness can have a big impact.Championing Australian 🇦🇺
We take immense pride in supporting the best Australian makers, distillers, producers, and creatives.

Creativity is at the heart of what we do. We're not here to provide uninspiring, run-of-the-mill gifts. Instead, we're dedicated to thinking outside of the box, ensuring that your gifts stand out. Our gift hampers come in fully customizable tubes, and you have the freedom to add a personal touch, select unique items, and incorporate your brand's identity. We believe that the most memorable gifts are the ones that show thoughtfulness and care.
So, as we wrap up our quirky love story and our journey into the world of gift hampers and corporate gifting, we want to say a big "thank you" once again for being a part of the Good Day People family. Your support, generosity, and enthusiasm make every day a good day for us, and we're here to make every day a Good Day for you and your recipients.A Deep Dive into Our Journey: From Lovebirds to Gifting Sensation
Our journey begins with a love story that's equal parts hilarious, stupid, and incredibly heartwarming. Picture this: The first lockdown hits, and we find ourselves stuck at home, bored out of our minds. Like many others, we decided to channel our energy into trying out new hobbies and spending time together.
Now, here's the twist—despite being engaged for six weeks, we had no wedding plans in sight, thanks to the uncertainty of the pandemic. So, we had lots of free time, plenty of homemade sourdough bread, and a spare cupboard just begging to be transformed into something exciting. And that's where the Good Day People journey began.
Our initial goal was a modest one: to sell just one gift hamper a day in our first year. We had no grand expectations; we were simply motivated by a shared passion for creating unique, delightful gifts. The concept was simple but revolutionary: we wanted to replace the standard cellophane-wrapped wicker baskets with something that was not only more fun but also incredibly cool and gender-neutral.
Fast forward to our one-year anniversary, and we were in for a surprise. We had not only achieved our goal of selling one hamper a day—we had sold over 12,000 Good Day People gifts! It was a jaw-dropping moment that left us feeling incredibly grateful for our generous community.
Now, we know what you're thinking—did the pressure of running a growing business lead to a whirlwind wedding or maybe even some honeymoon babies? Well, the answer is no. We remained happily married with no additions to the family. Instead, we focused on what truly mattered: our community of Good Day People, who have made it a Good Day for over 43,000 people across the globe!The Values that Drive Us: Why Good Day People Stands Out
