    Default What's a good gift from Oz?

    We're travelling to the US in a couple weeks and our Air BNB host has very graciously allowed me to have some Amazon orders delivered to his house for us. This has saved me heaps of money and also I was able to order some stuff we can't actually get here.
    I'd like to bring him a little thank you gift but I'm drawing a blank.
    Not Vegemitd or Tim Tams. Both can be purchased there.
    I need something easy to transport that is uniquely Australian. From his profile he seems quite young as well. Looks about mid twenties.

    Does he drink beer do you think? A stubbie cooler is a very australian thing
    When we had a personal tour around new york i got our host some aboriginal painting magnets as they are small so easy to travel with.

    Good idea. Or maybe even a stubby holder filled with stuff so it doesn't get broken

    Yeah even better. I did little boxes (paper ones that I assembled there) of things for my hosts when I travelled Japan and it was great to be able to put them together as I went, not carrying them around worrying about damaging them.

    some nice aussie honey? that might cause quarantine issues though....

    i guess it depends on whether you want to go token touristy gifts or something aussie but practical. i’d fall into the latter category and so would prob go with the bondi wash option plus maybe a couple of cans of nice aussie beer (like craft beer, not vb or export )
