I am going to Australia for 3 months in October. What gifts could I take for a man and a woman that they would like from the USA.
One of my friends is a retired lady, and the other is a married couple, retired, but the husband works just 3 days a week. I would like to take something that is really hard to find in Australia.
I would say anything that is authentic to your area / state. If they have any special interests you could take something that is native to the US but relates to their interests. I would check our customs rules to give you an idea of what you are allowed to bring in though because Australia is very strict. I like to give iconic Aussie pieces like Akubra, Aussie opals, Aboriginal art and even food like Tim Tams etc... If you could find something similar I think that anyone would appreciate something thoughtful, unique and specific to where you are from. Just make it quintessentially American and it will be a hit. 12 months ago
