    Default Thoughtful Australiana gift idea?

    One of my bestest friends in the whole world is getting married overseas....and unfortunately I can't make it, which just makes me so sad My daughter was going to be flower-girl but for various reasons, it's just not going to happen Annnyway, they have a gift registry which I'll buy them their main gift from but I'd love to actually post them a small (in size) long-lasting sentimental gift as well? They're Canadian and I'd love to send them something Australiana so they know that their Aussie buddies were thinking of them on their special day. Something they could enjoy for years to come also! I was vaguely thinking something with a Opal maybe?? That's Australian isn't it?

    Can anyone think out of the box and come up with a fabulous idea to help me out please please please???

    Opals are very Australian.
    Something small made out of native Aussie wood - just be careful with customs - maybe banksia salt and pepper shakers.
    If you can get something they could use everyday it would be awesome.

    Opals would be lovely. Or perhaps some Aussie teaspoons - something that can be used & remind your friends of you? Or search on Australiana on Etsy - lots of ideas there and even better you could get it posted directly to your friends!

    Default Thoughtful Australiana gift idea?

    Depending on their interior design tastes, how about a framed print or poster of a vintage Australia advert? There are some gorgeous travel posters from the 30s-50s eg http://www.australianvintageposters.com.au/
    Or https://m.allposters.com.au/-st/Aust...s_c153443_.htm

    Or this is a lovely book covering James Northfields work- travel and commercial http://www.jamesnorthfield.org.au/BookRelease.htm
