Same shit, different year.
Isn’t it annoying how fast the year goes by? I can still hear the echo of the bottle corks popping on New Year’s Eve, and suddenly my coffee cup from the shop around the corner is covered in Rudolph the red nosed reindeer.
A drop of cold sweat runs down my spine. My heart begins to beat faster. I can feel a portion of my hair turn grey.
It’s the time of the year again. It’s time to buy Christmas presents. Don’t we all love it? What is it going to be this year? A pair of socks for dad? A bottle of wine for mum? Wow. I’ve been on this earth for over three decades and yet this is as far as my creativity reaches. What if there was a better way? Maybe there is a list somewhere that’ll point me in the right direction?

Unique Christmas Gifts
Buying the perfect unique Christmas gifts has just gotten a whole lot easier. It’s that time of year again! Christmas carols on repeat, overeating at every opportunity and trying to reject the advances of that guy or girl at the work Christmas party who can’t handle their champagne. And what better way to get into the Christmas spirit than battling for car spaces at the shops and blowing a months wage on gifts that no one wants or will use. We may growl about it – or maybe you’re one of those who love the silly season – but that’s just the way it goes, right?
Maybe it doesn’t have to be that way. This list makes buying the perfect unique Christmas gifts for everyone so easy, you’ll want to get started on next year’s gifts too! The best … Read More »
Shreddies flatulence filtering underwear features a ‘Zorflex’ activated carbon back panel that absorbs all flatulence odours. Due to its highly porous nature, the odour vapours become trapped and neutralised by the cloth, which is then reactivated by simply washing the garment.

Blunt Classic…. Simply the best umbrella you will ever own!
Storm proof in winds up to 120 km/h!
Ever since we first heard about Blunt Umbrellas we couldn’t wait to get our hands on them. We thought they would suit our unique and innovative product concept perfectly and we were not disappointed!
The humble umbrella has remained virtually unchanged for decades. That is until a marine biologist and a mechanical engineer from New Zealand got together and decided that it was time for a fresh approach.
A major flaw of conventional umbrella design is that even in light winds the fabric can tear away from a tip or come away from the ribs. When this happens, the whole structure collapses and the umbrella becomes useless.
The Blunt Classic umbrella has a uniquely tensioned canopy combined with a flatter aerodynamic profile. This revolution in umbrella design … Read More »
Dosh Wallets have been one of our most popular products ever since we launched Gyrofish. People love the innovative, clean and minimalist design, the high tech durable materials and the wide range of colours to suit every taste from edgy to conservative. The design gurus behind Dosh have won numerous design awards for their work including an Australian Design Award for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Torch design.
Now, the team at Dosh have released a stylish new ‘Gold Series’ edition of their popular Aero, Blade and Luxe wallets. The metal components look stunning in high gloss gold, complimented by the classic black body which results in a luxurious and sophisticated look.
The Blade Gold Series wallet utilizes Dosh’s signature money clip on one side and has two card slots on the reverse side. It’s the perfect wallet for those who like to travel light and remove … Read More »
We recently received an order for a pair of Nooka Sunglasses from a customer who had ordered from us before, only this time time they left us a note in the “Customer notes” section of the order…
The note said “Deliver with love“. Well a little bit of love goes into all our orders but this customer obviously wanted something special. The Gyro team are a pretty creative bunch and we thought long and hard about how we could fulfil the customer’s request to “Deliver with love“. We came up with all sorts of ideas including dressing up in a big love heart costume and surprising the customer with a personal delivery from our Managing Director but in the end we decided to keep it simple.
One of our Gyro service superstars made tracks to the local shops where he bought all the … Read More »
Forget the boring conventional dome tent! You’ll be the envy of the camp site with this amazing new VW Kombi Camper Van Tent from the Monster Factory.
Officially licensed by Volkswagon (no kidding!), this tent is literally a full size (1:1 scale) replica of the 1965 VW Kombi Camper Van! It’s large enough for the average person to stand up in and internally zip-divided into two rooms, sleeping 4 people in total. Fly sheet doors separate the inner compartments and a waterproof groundsheet is sewn into the inside of the tent. There’s also handy wall pockets to store your belongings.
All materials, ropes, pegs, poles etc are high quality as the product is actually manufactured by the same factory that produces tents for trusted North Face, K2 and Coleman brands.

Luminara candles offer the beauty and elegance of a traditional burning candle, minus the safety concerns.
There’s no denying the ambience that only a real candle can provide…….until now that is.
The patented ‘Artificial Flame Technology’ was developed by Disney’s ‘imagineers’ and used in the Haunted Mansion attractions at Disney’s theme parks. This same technology now brings some of this Disney magic into your home.
What makes Luminara so unique is that the Luminara ‘flame’ moves in a completely random fashion just like a real candle. The effect, which is created by two magnets repelling against each other, results in a natural glow and flicker that (to the untrained eye) is indistinguishable from a real candle.
Forget other flameless candles, these are superior in every way. In fact when we were testing the product, we were dining with a friend who certainly didn’t realise they weren’t real … Read More »
After more than a year in the works, our friends at Ziiiro (who brought us the ever popular ‘Celeste’ and ‘Mercury’ watches) have created something really special. Introducing the Ziiiro Saturn.
Ziiiro have injected the same philosophy of crafting unconventional timepieces with no clock hands or markings, but instead using the changing patterns of rings. What makes the Ziiiro ‘Saturn’ so special though, is the introduction of an EL (Electroluminescent) display, which not only makes night readability possible, but provides a distinctive and eye-catching new look.
Available in Black, Gunmetal and Chrome
