Home & Kitchen

Ice-cream Maker

Homemade ice-cream, sorbet and frozen yoghurt?! OMG, sign us up! Making your own delicious desserts is so easy with the SMEG Ice Cream Maker, and it provides greater control over what you put into your sweets (natural ingredients, less sugar, choc chips or sprinkles!). This one makes 1.1 litres in about 20-30mins.

Please note: This ice-cream maker is only compatible with SMEG stand mixers with stainless-steel bowl.

Projector

Projectors are all the rage, especially if you’ve got a large space or want to watch a movie under the stars! They make watching anything – a movie, live sport and TV in general – feel like grand final day, every day. The bonus is projectors can be easier on the eyes due to larger detail and less light, meaning your eyes don’t strain as much. Look out for a high contrast ratio (1500:1 or 2000:1), as that will provide superior image quality to most TVs, Wi-Fi connectivity to stream Netflix, Stan etc, screen mirroring (via Wi-Fi to stream straight from your phone), and USB connectivity. Check out our range of projectors and screens.

Smart Frame

Say goodbye to boring photo frames. Now you can have digital frames placed around your home that display multiple photos. The Lenovo Smart Frame is a 21.5-inch full high definition frame with a stunning grey matte finish to suit any home decor. It even shows photos via the Google Photos app (available on iOS and Android) without having to select photos manually.

Beauty

Hairdryer

Can’t do a must-have list without Dyson. The Dyson Airwrap Styler dries and styles your hair at the same time, using air and controlled heat (it never goes above 150 degrees Celsius) – that means it doesn’t use excessive heat (risking hair damage) to deliver results. The Airwrap comes with a firm smoothing brush for straightening, two barrels (30mm and 40mm) for curls, volumising brush and soft smoothing brush that’s gentle on your scalp. Your hair can also be dried using the pre-styling dryer. Simply amazing.

Eye Massager

Our eyes are delicate and need to be carefully looked after, which is why the Homedics Radiance Eye Revive is the ideal gift for anyone and everyone. The eye massager boosts collagen production, promotes blood circulation, reduces puffiness and dark circles, and features a 3-in-1 head for heat and red light treatments.

Hair Styler

Goodbye frizz! Hallelujah! That’s all you need to know. The VS Sassoon Frizz Defence Rotating Hot Air Styler is a brush and dryer in one, making a salon-style blow dry super simple to be done at home. Frizz is reduced by the release of ions to eliminate static and condition the hair cuticle, while the rotating ceramic barrels keep your hair shiny.

Wellness

Fitness Tracker

Want to take your health and fitness to the next level? The Fitbit Charge 5 will help you reach your goals with built-in GPS for real-time pace and distance tracking, and a range of health features, such as trends in SpO2 (oxygen saturation) levels, skin temperature, stress management, and high and low heart rate notifications. With a premium membership, your Fitbit will tell you when you’re ready to work out or when you need to prioritise recovery to prevent injury and get the most out of yourself. It comes in black, lunar white and steel blue.

EScooter

Electric scooters make an amazing gift – and they aren’t just for fun (even though they’re legit so much fun!) – they’re practical and provide an alternative way to get to your destination, whether it’s work, a family or friend’s house, or a shop. Look out for LED displays that allow you to track speed and battery life for safety, and anti-vibration mechanisms and wheels to reduce vibration and instability caused by uneven ground. eScooters can be folded so they’re easy to carry and store when you arrive. Make sure you also pick up the mandatory safety gear, such as a helmet and knee guards and check out your local state laws and regulations before gunning that engine.

Massage Gun

There has never been more focus on recovery and repairing tired and sore muscles, which is why massage guns, such as the Homedics Pro Massage Gun, have become a must-have to boost performance and help you live a healthier life. Give it to the fitness fanatic in your life and it well help them say goodbye to expensive massage, physio and osteo appointments. This one has three intensity options.

Audio Visual

Headphones

If you or someone you know with an iPhone doesn’t have Apple AirPods, what are you waiting for? Wireless, sweat and water resistant, you can take them anywhere and use them working out, running, walking, kicking the footy and in the office at work. The Gen 3 AirPods feature a longer battery life.

If you’re an Android user, check out the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds – they’re noise cancelling, wireless and the quality of the audio is amazing. They’re also sweat and water resistant.

HomePod Mini

Play your fave tunes and get the latest news, weather, sport scores and more through the Apple HomePod mini. With a 360-degree speaker, it will fill your room with incredible sound quality that is amazing from every angle, and it can be transported from room to room. Siri voice assistant and Wi-Fi is built-in. Now available in a range of super cute colours, it will seamlessly suit any home decor.

Google Nest Doorbell

Video doorbells, such as the Google Nest Doorbell, are an essential tool to improve your home’s security. The camera and built-in speaker allows you to see who’s at your door wherever you are – the 24/7 feed is accessible on your smart device so you can see and communicate even if you’re not home. They’ll never know. The doorbell also sends notifications to your smart device, and if you need to check footage, you can easily review the last three hours. It runs on battery power, so there’s no need for professional installation.
