Local business The Gift Specialist on Unley Road plays Santa 365 days a year.

Their range of carefully curated gift baskets and boxes filled with local produce is almost never ending, and Jane Francis and her team are masters when it comes to sourcing and creating the perfect gift, no matter the occasion.

It’s always been her dream to run a small business here in Adelaide and now, it’s Jane’s time to shine. “I always wanted to work with my husband and daughters and support SA products — I just needed to find the right business!” Jane says. In January, the stars aligned and The Gift Specialist on Unley Road became her new baby.

“I want people to feel special, so the products need to be unique. We work really hard to nail the brief because we know we’re out there delivering happiness — we get to see the look on someone’s face when they receive something they weren’t expecting!” smiles Jane.

Here are a few ideas to get the gift- giving inspo flowing…

For the girl boss – The Gift Specialist works to your budget and you can’t go past the jam-packed SA Gourmet Hamper filled with locally sourced food.

For the baby mama – The nappy cakes are adorable, especially the Orangutan Nappy Cake! $5 from every purchase is donated back into the Thin Green Line Foundation, which supports the animals and families of park rangers killed on duty.

For your BFF – If my bestie gave me a Bubbles Bouquet filled with champagne and choccies, she’d definitely rack up brownie points! The Spa Buffet pamper pack is another option, complete with chocolate soap, bath sugar, triple chocolate coated almonds, a hot chocolate spoon, plus some other indulgent goodies.

For your pooch – It’s cuteness overload with the pooch-perfect gift, which includes a champagne bottle toy with reusable squeaker and some extra- fancy dog treats.


The Gift Specialist works with their own team of delivery drivers (with Jane sometimes behind the wheel herself!) so your gifts arrive in time. Order before 1.30pm Monday to Friday, and 12pm on Saturday for same day delivery to Adelaide metro areas.


“We’re becoming more sustainable by reducing single use items. Instead of cellophane on certain items, you can now buy your gifts with eco packaging like a vase and a hessian bag, which can be reused as a bonus!” Jane says.
