Australian gifts for large budgets

Travelers love maps. It’s a statement I keep repeating because it’s true. And do you know what travelers love even more than maps?

A map of their favorite country!

So if you are looking for cool Australian gift ideas for someone who is obsessed with Australia, this personalized map in a heart frame is perfect.

Check out #5 for another unique map of Australia.


#2 Aussie footy jersey

Did you know that Australian football is one of the most popular sports to watch and play in Australia? It’s also called Aussie rules or even more simple (because Aussies like to shorten everything) footy,

As a non-Aussie, I would say it’s a lot like American Football with a few adaptations (though don’t tell the Australians I said that).

Anyways, if you are looking for fun Australian gift ideas for people who are into sports, then anything related to footy is a cool idea. Check out the AFL Footy Shop for all options, or go for this polo from the Carlton Blues (arguably one of the best teams in the country).


#3 Aboriginal art

If you are looking for authentic gifts from Australia and you don’t mind spending a bit more money on your gift, definitely check out Tangentyere Artist to find handmade products made by local Aussie artists.


#4 Australian footwear

Yes, this is definitely one of the more expensive Australian gifts, but shoes from an Australian shoe brand make gifts for the fashionista in your life.

You can check out Australian Footwear or of course, the classic Australian shoe brand, UGG.


#5 Beer cap map of Australia

This beer cap map is another awesome gift for someone who is obsessed with Australia, and who loves beer.

They can fill up the map with beer caps from the bottles they’ve finished. To go the complete Aussie way, they can even fill the holes with Australian beer caps only, but that’s up to the recipient of course.

For more gifts from Australia for beer lovers, head over to #7.


#6 Personalized Australian family portrait

This personalized kangaroo family portrait is the perfect gift for a family who loves Australia or for an Australian family in general!


#7 Australian gifts beer box

Aussies love their beer. Even though you generally won’t find a lot of Australian beer brands abroad, I promise that there are plenty of amazing Aussie beer brands. So if you are looking for gifts for someone who loves beer, this craft beer box will definitely make them happy!

It includes a total of twelve beer bottles, with four different variations.

Though if you are looking for a cheaper gift, you may want to get a smaller box of craft beer.


#8 Yeah, Nah shirt

Shirt with Yeah,Nah

If you don’t understand why a “Yeah, Nah” shirt is one of the funniest and typical Australian gifts, you do need to check out #23 on this list; The Aussie slang dictionary.

Though technically, yeah, Nah, is not even slang. It’s just such a typical Australian saying, and that’s exactly what makes this such a great Australian-themed gift.


#9 Personalized koala necklace

If you are looking for cute Australian-themed gifts for women, this necklace is an awesome gift idea!

It comes with a pendant of a koala, and you have the option to personalize the round tag that hangs on the back of the necklace (though you can also leave it blank if you don’t want a personalized one).


Australian gifts for mid budgets

#10 Australian cookbooks

Book titled: Australian food

Australia may mostly be famous for its barbies, but that doesn’t mean there are no other great Australian recipes to try at home! This book by Bill Granger is a great cookbook to start with.


Book titled: Australian fish & seafood cookbooks

As one of the largest islands in the world, access to the sea and fresh fish is generally not a problem in Australia. And with this cookbook, the recipient can learn how to prepare their fish the Aussie way.



#11 Tim Tam cookies

For any Australian who is feeling homesick or any Australia-obsessed traveler who just misses Australian food, this is one of the best gifts from Australia.

Tim Tams are probably one of the most iconic Australian cookies. I am not sure if I have ever met an Australian who doesn’t love these chocolate-covered cookies.

I selected a set of four different Tim Tam flavors for this gift. That way, the recipient can switch it up. Though they will probably just finish each box of Tim Tams straight away, because they are very addictive!


#12 Australian-themed jigsaw puzzle

If you are looking for Australian gifts for someone who loves jigsaw puzzles, here is the perfect gift for you; a 1000-piece puzzle of the Sydney harbor.

And for an even more authentic gift, you could also go for a puzzle that’s made in Australia, for that head over to Australia Unseen.


#13 Boomerang

Another classic gift from Australia is the good ol’ boomerang.

You can get them in all sorts of designs and within all price ranges, such as these two boomerangs on Amazon.


#14 Australian guidebooks

If you are looking for Australian-themed gifts for someone who will traveling to Australia soon, then obviously this is the perfect gift!


Lonely Planet Australia guidebook

Australia is an expensive country to travel to, but with the Lonely Planet, even budget travelers can explore this beautiful country!


Lonely Planet Tasmania guidebook

Lonely Planet Tasmania

I’ll admit, guidebooks are not really the most unique Australian gifts. And you do need to check whether they already have a guidebook, otherwise, it’s a bit of a useless gift. But also remember that Australia is huge, so there might be a part the recipient hasn’t visited yet and you could find a guidebooks for that specific area, such as this one for Tasmania.


#15 Australian wine

Are you looking for gifts from Australia for a wine lover?

Then clearly, a bottle of wine is the best gift you can get.

And luckily for you, there are plenty of good options for that. Australia is home to quite a few wine regions. For example, the Margeret River in Western Australia, which is where this wine is from.


#16 Australia-themed passport cover

Are you looking for Australian-themed gifts for people who travel a lot?

Then a passport cover in Australian style is the perfect gift!

I quite liked this cover with Australian slang words that form a kangaroo, because I feel like it’s the most typical Aussie passport cover you can find. But there are quite a few more options on Zazzle if you prefer something different.


Australian gifts for small budgets

#17 Aussie underwear

For funny and more random gifts from Australia, I would recommend underwear from AussieBum. They are cheeky, comfortable, and fun to give!


#18 Australian-themed socks

Did you know that there is a certain age when you suddenly start to appreciate socks as a gift? You can find out your age by taking your date of birth and adding 400 months.

Alright, I just made that last calculation up, but I still stand by what I said, at some random point in your life, you will start loving receiving socks.

So if your recipient is, in fact, at the age of appreciating socks. Then these kangaroo socks are the perfect gift! Or check out these cute koala socks.


#19 Australian-themed journal

Notebooks and diaries always come in handy for travelers, so why not give an Australian notebook to someone who is in love with the country? Even if they are not traveling at the time, notebooks still come in handy.


#20 Tote bag

This tote bag with the skyline of Sydney is perfect for people who love Sydney (duh).

But don’t worry if the recipient prefers a different Aussie city, you can find over 2700 different Aussie-themed tote bags on Zazzle, so there should be something for everyone.


#21 Calendars


This Australian firemen calendar is the perfect gift if you are also looking for sustainable gifts.

It’s a way to give back to Australia and nature with your gift. The money raised with these calendars is used for various Australian charities. So it’s a win-win. You’ve got an awesome gift and nature has got a sponsor.

Alternatively, you could get Australian-themed calendars that do not involve halve naked men. (I can imagine that not everyone would enjoy having naked men hanging in their room).


#22 Swear like an Australian coloring book

Coloring is not just for children, especially not with this coloring book that also teaches you how to swear like an Australian.

In fact, keep this coloring book away from children, unless you want them to start swearing like an Australian.


#23 Australian slang dictionary

Another fun way to learn about the Australian language is this Australian slang dictionary, which will help any Australian-lover, to understand even more of the country they love so much!
