We come from the Land Down Under! Forget picking up tacky Australian souvenirs at tourist shops for overblown prices. At hardtofind, we’ve curated a number of gifts that celebrate the singularly spectacular flora, fauna and Vegemite that make our country great. So whether you’re shopping for a homesick family member who’s overseas, or want to send a taste of ‘Straya to a friend from abroad, consider us your go-to for finer Australian gifts.
Not sure where to start when looking for the perfect souvenir? We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite parts of the Aussie experience that you’ll want to remember, relive and share with all your family and friends abroad.
From cockatoos and echidnas to wombats and wallabies, our motley line-up of local wildlife is iconically Aussie – and makes for some of the best souvenirs from Australia. Whether you opt for a custom cockatoo family print (personalised especially for your clan), a hand-illustrated bluebottle-print tea towel, or a colourful mug featuring a koala in a Hawaiian shirt (because #beachlife), nothing says ‘true blue’ like the gift of Aussie fauna.
You don’t have to be Jamie Durie to appreciate all the fine Aussie flora on show across our fine land. If you weren’t blessed with a green thumb, you can still capture a bit of natural beauty with a gumleaf serving board made from local hardwood, a Moreton Bay fig table runner or a set of monochrome eucalyptus prints for your gallery wall. No watering or fertilizer required.
Let’s talk iconic landmarks. From the Sydney Opera House to the Melbourne trams and (do we even need to say it?) Bondi Beach, our national treasures are instantly recognisable around the world. Save yourself four bucks on a postcard you’ll never look at again – we’ve got striking wall art, printed carry-all totes and keepsake wooden toys that capture these icons in their glory.
Then there’s the most important part of life Down Under… the food. Fairy bread! Paddle Pops! Vegemite! The Bunnings sausage sizzle! We’ve got an awesome collection of Aussie food gifts, from actual hampers of local fare. Think an Aussie treats umbrella, printed with fairy bread and Lamingtons, a pair of Bubble O’Bill earrings that look almost good enough to eat, and a set of wooden kids toys shaped like iconic bickies (Iced Vovo, we see you!).
A (tasteful) taste of Australia can make a terrific gift for travellers, homesick friends and family or even loved ones back home if you’re the one on your Oz adventure. At hardtofind, we’ve collected quirky, creative Australian gifts that represent a much more contemporary, cool take on Australiana, with plenty of cockatoos, Melbourne trams, Aussie slang and fairy bread on show.
