Australian gifts with a difference for great Aussie themed gift ideas

Australian Gifts with a Difference

When you are looking for gifts on your travels, it is generally true that you look for a gift that is not too bulky, not too heavy, that offers great quality without being too expensive. These are important things to consider when looking for a gift from Australia to either carry back home, send home or to keep as a memento for yourself – a memory of your holiday in Australia.

Buying patterns for souvenir purchasing have changed somewhat since we first started travelling 20 years ago. Society has changed and is still changing. As consumers we are wanting more meaningful products, more practical gifts – something we know will not end up in a landfill. We founded Koh Living to help create options that are much more beautiful, thoughtful and worthy of gifting or treasuring as travel memorabilia. We knew we wanted our range to change souvenir gifting and stay away from gimmicky, junky souvenirs that buyers had always been stuck with. 

Choosing The Perfect Gift To Send Overseas

Whether you're a backpacker on a budget or a luxury traveller, price and the size of your gift are both considered when you're sending, or taking a gift overseas. Of course, something light enough and tough enough to travel well is always ideal, but affordability is key to being able to send gifts to everyone you know who's waiting for them back home.

On top of this, ensuring the meaning and uniqueness of your Australian travel gifts is always at the forefront of making the best choice. Will this gift mean something to the receiver? How will they feel as they open it? Is it relevant to them or will it end up in landfill? We all want to be sure that when we give a gift to someone they will love it. We want to see a smile appearing on their face and we want to feel the connection.

Drawing on a lifetime´s experience in travelling and a desire to make a difference in people´s lives, here are our favourite gifts with a difference so that you can send beautiful Australian gifts overseas, or take them home with you for someone you love or admire.

Aboriginal Wild Flowers Stainless Steel Travel Mug:

The perfect travel gift idea for sending Aboriginal art gifts overseas. This stunning design by Pammy Foster is bright, colourful and cheerful and the perfect reminder of the beauty of Australia. 


Australian Aboriginal Art Gifts For Overseas friends


Kinship Recycled Plastic Bottle Bag:

If you are worried about weight or postage, consider choosing Melanie’s equally beautiful Kinship Recycled Plastic Bottle Bag.

The artist, Melanie Hava, was raised in the outback where she would often see emus travelling through the long grasses. Occasionally, she would observe two males joining forces to protect their chicks. This banding together in kinship to feed and protect their mob echoes the way aboriginals once lived.
