Tired of seeing the same home décor items everywhere?

Have you ever gone shopping, ready to buy some new homewares only to see the same cheap items in every shop?

It’s frustrating, especially when you know there must be stunning, well-made, and affordable home décor items out there.

And if you live in a rural or regional area, it’s even harder.

Chances are, if you do find a stylish, on-trend piece you love, you’ll see it at every friend and neighbour's house.

With a Hometastic home décor subscription box, you can decorate your home with fresh, unique pieces.

Wish you had time to shop for beautiful new items for your home?

There are many stunning, independent shops that stock a fantastic range of one-of-a-kind items.

But who has time to browse the shops looking for the perfect piece?

Got small kids? I know the last thing you want to be doing is dragging them around the shops on the hunt for homewares.

And if by some stroke of luck you find something you love, how will you style it?

A decorators dream. Pieces chosen with love, carefully wrapped and designed to complement any home.

What's included

Every quarter, you’ll receive the Hometastic box packed with 4-6 beautifully wrapped home décor items. In the past these have included items like throw rugs, serving ware, decorative items, candles, mugs and signs. 

I source all items especially for each box, so you’re unlikely to see similar items at the local shops.

Making every house a home

While I love curating the Hometastic boxes, I’m not a professional stylist. My day job is actually nursing, but when I moved to Australia, I was missing the touches of home.

And so, I created Ruby’s Home Store, stocking all things British.

But occasionally, I’d come across other items that weren’t British, but were still gorgeous.

I’ve lived in many rentals over the years, and became quite good at finding pieces that would make a bland house a home. I realised the magic of finding a few new items to refresh and update a space.

So, I took this experience to create a seasonal subscription box with the beautiful things I found, and so the Hometastic subscription box was born.

Since launching Ruby’s Home Store and the Hometastic Box, we’ve won the following awards and been featured in several publications.

Praise for the Hometastic box

Love the surprise

I have received my second Hometastic Box and it is such great value and I love the surprise element of never knowing exactly what I will receive. I do know, however, that it will be of great quality and the decor items, while being unique, are complementary to most interiors.

Helen Collins

A treat for you and your home

Such great quality pieces, that I wouldn't have thought to buy for myself. They all fit into my home decor and I have received many a compliment!


Love every item

The Hometastic Box is such a joy! It’s a lovely experience for me and my whole family when we open and unwrap everything together. Jane clearly puts her heart and soul into making thoughtful choices for her subscribers, and we have loved every item - including the beautiful wrapping.

Anna Papworth

The Hometastic Box is so great.

I absolutely loved everything Jane had included in it. The items were beautifully wrapped, increasing anticipation. I love them all and now am excited for the next box. Such a great idea and so many items inside there is one for every room!

Frequently asked questions

Still got questions? Here are some questions we’ve received in the past.

A subscription box is a package of goodies sent to you regularly (in our case, quarterly) for a fee. They’re a delightful surprise, containing a range of products tailored to your interests. With each box, you get access to limited edition and themed items you mightn’t have discovered otherwise. Plus, the community of subscribers creates a sense of belonging around shared interests. Subscriptions boxes also save time and hassle and are
great value. The products inside are often worth more than what you pay for the subscription. It's like getting a bargain while indulging in your guilty pleasures.

All subscription boxes ship at the same time – on or around the 5th of March, June, September and December. So it should end up at your door within 7 to 10 days.

You can pause or cancel at any time. Just log into your account or email me before 20th of February, June, August or November.
Please note that if you joined the 12 month commitment plan (before August 2023) you have committed to pay for that full period of the subscription. You can skip months during a commitment term.

If you are on a new quarterly plan, you can cancel anytime.
If you agreed to a 12 month subscription (before August 2023) you need to stay for the full commitment period.
We do not do refunds on the already sent box.
To cancel your subscription, log into your account or email me before 20th of February, June, August or November.

Currently, our subscription box is only available in Australia or New Zealand.
(There is an extra shipping cost of AUD $19.95 for NZ)

You certainly can. You can add a gift subscription to your cart. Choose the length of their subscription and be sure to correctly enter your billing address and THEIR shipping address.

Yes. I work hard each season to find products that will fit into your home. Most boxes include a mix of neutral tones and pops of colour that will complement most rooms.

I’m quite confident you will love everything in your box. But if there’s something that’s not quite your style, you can always regift it, or donate it to charity.

I choose the items for each season’s box is carefully in advance. That means that every 3 months, you get to enjoy opening a fresh surprise. You can’t choose what will be in your box, but you can be confident I’ll find some beautiful products for you.

No. Unfortunately my subscription website doesn’t allow you to earn or use Ruby's on subscription boxes. You’ll have one account on the main website and another if you purchase a box subscription.

You can pause or cancel at any time. Just log into your account or email me before 20th of February, June, August or November.
If you joined the 12 month commitment plan (before August 2023) you’ve committed to pay for that full period of the subscription. You can skip months during a commitment term.
