Having a brilliant idea is essential to becoming a successful entrepreneur but it takes years of determination, courage and the support of a hard working team to develop a small business to a thriving enterprise.

Here are some wise advice and tips from our MD Leonie Henzell for anyone starting on their entrepreneurial journey.

Bockers & Pony – unusual name for a hamper company, right?

Bockers & Pony started when our MD Leonie Henzell moved from Brisbane to Melbourne in 2001 and needed to send gifts back home to family and friends. The options online were limited and she couldn’t find anything that she would be proud to send. From this gap in the market, Bockers & Pony was born!

Our brains are wired to be curious. We all love opening presents. Feeling the shape, shaking the box and trying to guess what’s inside. It is so much fun to open a gift and feel the anticipation of what is going to be inside the parcel. Sharing this with others makes the gift opening ceremony even more special. Imagine if you could capture this joy on video and share this with others. This is what we believe unboxing is all about!

In very exciting news, we have set up a new Bockers & Pony warehouse in Sydney. Based in Banksmeadow, a suburb close to the airport, you can now choose to have your gift delivered on the same day in Sydney when ordering online. This is a significant opportunity for our business and means that we can deliver hampers on the same business day in both Melbourne from our HQ and now in Sydney.

Give Mum the Gift of Sleep this Mother’s Day!

Let’s face it, not everyone gets a full 8 hours of beauty sleep every night. A perfect night’s sleep is such a luxury. This year at Bockers & Pony, we have created a Mother’s Day Hamper that will completely transform your wife or lovely Mum from ‘sleep deprived’ to ‘sleeping beauty’.

Sleeping on a silk pillowcase with a silk eye mask is a truly luxurious experience. We have a hamper that could possibly be the best Mother’s Day surprise ever! I am in love with my matching charcoal, 100% mulberry silk pillowcase and eye mask from The Goodnight Company.

Same Day Delivery of Hampers

13/04/16 4:28 PM

A lesson in Never Compromising your Values.

We understand the power of same day delivery. Established in 2004 we have been delivering our gifts and hampers on the same business day in Melbourne reliably and effectively for 12 years.

For the last 7 months we have been delivering a small range of our hampers on the same business day in Sydney. We lovingly pre-packed our hampers and sent them to a logistics company to execute the same day deliveries in Sydney. We only had 20 hampers available out of our range of 250 hampers. A very small selection of our best sellers.

Baby Hampers And Baby Showers

There’s nothing more exciting for a family than welcoming a new baby. Baby showers were traditionally held to celebrate the recent or expected birth of a family’s first child by ‘showering’ the mother with gifts at a get-together. Conventionally only women were invited and normally a close friend or family member would host the shower.

BOCKERS AND PONY TURNS 10

3/10/14 10:37 AM

Well this is a pretty exciting day! This is our very first Bockers and Pony blog post. For 10 years we have been sending printed catalogues and emails and for the last couple of years, sharing our story with you on social media. Now we can actually let you know a little bit more about our beautiful business and what we get up at Bockers and Pony HQ.

So here we go...This year marks our 10th year in business. Established in 2004, Bockers and Pony was born to serve one purpose. We wanted you to be able to send a high quality gift that was immaculately packaged, ordered with ease and delivered on time. The kind of gift that is impressive. The kind of gift that the recipient actually cherishes and wants to keep. The kind of gift that is remembered. 

We are pretty fussy and we have good taste, (self assessed) ...so we have always wanted to share with you the kinds of gifts and hampers that will really make you look great. This is one of my favourite gifts at the moment... 12 DAYS OF LUXE
