The Best Non-Boring Gifts You Can Get Delivered in Melbourne

Since 2020, we all have a new appreciation for the magic of home delivery. Not only do you not have to miss out on your favourite local products, but it also allows you to support small businesses, which has never been so important in a post-covid economy.

Also, if you’re like us and sometimes forget important occasions due to the business of daily life, same-day delivery can be a real life-saver.

Here are our favourite places that offer fun deliveries in Melbourne.



Goldeluck’s delivers boxes of doughnuts, with everything from a Nutella doughnut bouquet, to vegan Valentine’s doughnuts, to giant Nutella and rocher cronuts for literally any occasion. Whether it’s for a birthday, a lover, or just a little note to say thank you, no one has the power to resist doughnuts, especially when they’re boxed and wrapped beautifully.
You can browse endless options on their website. Goldeluck’s can do same-day delivery in Melbourne for these products.

Nothing says “you’re loved” more than a good box of chocolate. Melbourne Cocoa’s gift bundles are a great way to show someone you care with a beautiful selection of Australian-made choccies. They’ve got everything from caramel to honeycomb, from block to truffles, from chocolates for lovers to chocolates for empowered singles. It’s an all-stop-choccie-shop.

That’s Amore Cheese

A gift in the form of charcuterie and cheese is our favourite kind of gift, tbh. There’s nothing a good meat and cheese board can’t fix, whether it be the lockdown blues or a bad day at work, everything is better over a cheeseboard. That’s Amore has a selection of moreish hampers with true Italian portions and we reckon, the bigger the better. You can choose one of theirs or build-your-own with their selection of award-winning cheese, wine, gin, meats, biscuits, pastes and… you guessed it, more cheese.
