Who are we?

We are Emilia, Marissa and Brendan, three young parents living in the hills east of Melbourne. Gift Express is where we record our explorations in handcrafting beautiful things fit for our loved ones to receive. We hope you’ll be inspired to try them out.  

We believe that gift-giving doesn’t have to cost the earth, and that the giver can get as much out of it as the recipient. We aim to teach this to our kids by putting our care and time into creating tokens of affection for our friends and families – ideally, things that they in turn can use to bring joy to others.
