We all know about the plush kangaroos, koalas; and the boomerangs with Aboriginal art.

Would you recommend something different--something creative, unique and small--to gift to a loved one on the other side of the world?

Native floral bookmarks by May Gibbs click here. They are so cute and were originally designed for soldiers in WWI to have something native to their home with them!
This is brilliant!!!

I would say Koalas, Vegemite and any other native Aussie animal toy.
Ugg boots! Or vegemite for the people you don't really like!
Chocolate coated Macadamia nuts.

Totally yummmmie.

The wooden Boomerang keyrings on this site are so cute! http://www.souvenirsaustralia.com/category15_1.htm Magnets work well too. They are small, inexpensive and practical.

I like to buy lovely locally-made handicrafts for friends and family who live overseas. Arts and crafts by Indigenous Australian artists are very beautiful, and while the big paintings by well-known artists are expensive, smaller items like hand-painted trinket boxes, carved wooden sculptures and baskets are a lot more affordable. By purchasing these, we're also helping to financially support artists living in remote outback communities. All major Australian cities have shops, including those attached to art galleries, that specialise in Indigenous art. When my family was travelling up in north-western WA a few years ago we saw a lot of gorgeous hand-carved boab nuts...you can't get more Australian than these! These can often be purchased on ebay. Just choose the 'art' tab and type in boab nut.

Art galleries in the capital cities and many museums also stock beautiful handicrafts by local artists, including drawings, sculpture, textile art, jewellery and much more. Wood carvings in beautiful Australian hardwoods are also a nice gift.
An authentic painted didgeridoo perhaps?
