Homing Instincts: Melbourne's Favourite Gift Shop

Welcome to Homing Instincts – Melbourne’s one-stop gift shop for all things Gifts, Cards and Homewares. We like to think we're pretty funny, but we’ll let you be the judge of that! With over 30,000 different items online and in-store, we cater to all ages, price ranges and interests, so you will always find that perfect present that you can’t find anywhere else.

We’re a Melbourne based, fun family business and opened our first gift shop in Warrandyte in 2010. We then opened our second store in Hawthorn in 2012, and went online in 2015. We opened another store up the road in Malvern in 2016, and in 2017, branched out again to Moonee Ponds and re-opened our Warrandyte store. In October 2022, we opened our fourth store in Bentleigh.
