About Us

Who we are

Ambiance is a family business run by two sisters, Connie and Mel and they commenced trading at 509 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne, in August 1997. Since then, the business has gradually evolved into the extensive store that it is today. We always felt that Melbourne was in need of a Gift Shop that was different from all others – full of the ‘unique’ and the ‘unusual’. We also realised there was a lack of Christmas decorations that were truly ‘rare’ and could become family heirlooms. Ambiance now has one of the largest ranges of Christmas ornaments and decorations from all over the world.

Our Annual Christmas Preview, held at the end of August, is a time where we showcase our latest Christmas collection. People from all parts of Australia and overseas attend year after year, with each event getting bigger and bigger as we continually source the globe for unique and unusual Christmas items.

We warmly welcome you to our store and hope you have a wonderful experience at Ambiance.
