    Default Help with 'Australian' gift

    So both of my cousins are bringing their partners to our boxing day party and I have never met them. They are from Europe and I was wanting to get them a little something so they feel welcome - a christmas pressie. I thought it might be fun to get something Australian-ish but have no idea what would be a good idea. Can anyone help out with some ideas? They are in their mid-twenties.

    A cool pair of Havianas (sp?) if you can get their shoe size?

    Or sheep's placenta moisturizer perhaps? Yes. It exists :vomit:

    I like the Havianas idea. But those babies aren't cheap. Maybe some big w double pluggers and stubby shorts Hahaaa.

    We had family visit from overseas one year - I gave them some Australian wine and some lemon myrtle creams and soaps. I despise those tacky Australian souvenirs.

    You could also give some macadamias (choc covered or just salted).

    Think of some things that are native to Australia and go from there
