One Of A Kind Gift Ideas
If you are on holidays in Australia and want to be able to bring home some great Australian gifts for your friends and family, never fear, you have quite a few great options. Whether you want to buy something amazing and unique or are the crafty type and want to make something yourself, it’s important to have your gifts represent the awesome time you will surely have had. The following are some great one of a kind gift ideas that are sure to be appreciated.
Unless your friends have been to Australia as well, Aboriginal art is guaranteed to be something that they don’t have already. Whether you go for an original painting, a boomerang or a mouse pad with a beautiful Aboriginal design on it, you are sure to find just the right gift for everyone on your list. So don’t get your friends some cheesy foreign made trinkets, instead go for something a bit more meaningful and give them the gift of Aboriginal art.
Photos You’ve Taken
An awesome gift that is definitely a one of a kind, is to print out some of your great photos from your trip and have them blown up and framed. You are sure to have some amazing photos, which will obviously all have great stories behind them, so this gift will be like giving a little piece of your trip.
Australia is known worldwide for its amazing wines, and even though a lot of Australia’s wines are readily available overseas, many of the smaller boutique wineries are only sold out of the vineyard itself. So if your friends or family like the occasional glass of wine, treat then with the gift of a bottle from one of the obscure little vineyards scattered around the country. If you are in the Barossa Valley, Margaret River region, the Hunter Valley or any other of Australia’s great wine producing region, pick up a bottle or two of incredible wine and give a gift that is sure to be a real treat.
An Aussie Rules Jersey
While having an AFL jersey is by no means uncommon if you live in Australia, this great game is only played down under so most people in the rest of the world would have never seen one. So if you know someone who is a mad sports lover, pick them up one of these very Australian souvenirs and they’ll be proudly showing off to their new strip to their sport loving friends in no time.
Make A Video
To pull this off you will need to decide to be collecting footage from day one so that you can have little snippets from your entire trip to mix in. The more random footage the better and once you have all your footage compiled and are getting close to the end of your trip, start piecing it all together as a creative telling of your adventure. If you have any production skills you could include music and subtitles and such, though regardless of how professionally it is done, this is a gift that is sure to be awesome and hilarious!
