You can buy a friend (or yourself) a mystery gift filled with Melbourne goodies

If 2020 hasn't thrown enough surprises at you, maybe this will?

Getting and giving gifts has been one of the highlights of life under lockdown, but if you've sent flowers, desserts and a gift hamper, what can you send to someone to tell them you love them?

Enter Just Surprise Me, a gift-giving service that does exactly what it says. The Victorian business sells all kinds of mystery hampers, including goodies from places like Melbourne's Rooftop Honey, Cuvee chocolate on the Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne-based Crackle Popcorn (Eloise from Just Surprise Me loves the rosemary caramel), Melbourne-based Love Tea and Bramble and Hedge nougat, which is also Melbourne based.

You can choose what products you want in your box, or, of course, you can choose to be surprised. Boxes range from $39 to $135, and they can be sent anywhere in Australia or overseas. 

Just Surprise Me says its client base has changed from corporate hampers to individuals sending gifts to friends, family or themselves during lockdown. Considering we've all been through lots of challenges this year, it might be time to brighten someone's day with a surprise treat, just because.
