The Australian Gift & Homewares Association (AGHA) is the association representing the gift and homewares industry in Australia. We are a not-for-profit organisation run by members, for members, and as such are dedicated to looking after the interests of our industry.
AGHA Members are suppliers and retailers representing a broad commercial spectrum, as ‘gift & homewares’ describes the products rather than the business.
AGHA Wholesaler members are those businesses who design, manufacture, import, source or otherwise supply gifts and/or homewares to other businesses. This classification covers a wide range of businesses including – but not limited to – suppliers of everything from gourmet food and fashion accessories, to furniture and children’s toys.
AGHA Retailer members cover a wide variety of businesses in the gift and homewares industry, small and large. The ‘Retailer’ category is so broad that each day we continue to discover new business types. Current Retailer members include newsagents, pharmacies, boutique gift shops and many more.
About AGHA Membership
Being an AGHA member enables your business to be a part of an association with over 3,500 active industry members. Members have access to a range of business discounts and services with savings on merchant facilities, insurance, freight, telecommunications and much more.
Wholesaler members have the facility to exhibit at both of our annual Home & Giving Fairs, while Retailer members can purchase their stock from our Home & Giving Fairs and gain access to a variety of exclusive services for the duration of the fair.
As well as receiving additional benefits, all members also obtain bi-annual industry survey data including industry trends, benchmarking and insights into the gift and homewares industry. By being a AGHA member you are able to play an active role in the gift and homewares industry and enter discussion with government and regulators on issues of concern to you.
