About Us

I’m Mel, the face behind Alex and Gold! I’m a mum of three kids and a wife of a very supportive husband - the one putting up more shelving for more stock or listening to all my ideas for Alex & Gold.

I love being creative and I love being social… you know that saying about people being able to talk the leg off a table? Yep, that’s me. I can’t help it, it runs in the family. And I love giving… Whether it’s a helping hand in the form of babysitting, a cooked meal to ease a fellow mum’s daily burden or a beautiful gift to let someone know they are thought of and appreciated! We have tried to cater for celebration gifts as well as those “just because” gifts to brighten someone’s day – even your own!

While I was busy working, being a mum and trying to be a good friend/wife/daughter, I didn’t feel like I had something for me – something that brings me joy, nervousness, excitement, challenges… all the feelings! I was putting it out to the universe that I needed something more! A good friend shared a quote with me recently “what’s meant for you won’t pass you by”. Along came the opportunity to bring you a world of giving beautiful gifts through Alex & Gold!

We are a small family run business so we want to support other small Aussie businesses. We have a story, they have a story and we want to be able to bring you beautiful collections to be part of your story!

Happy shopping! Xx
