Each year people from around the world choose to relocate to Australia. This can be for a new life, a new job, or perhaps even to retire. Given the remote nature of the country, it isn’t always easy for friends and family to visit regularly, especially not at peak times such as Christmas. With this in mind, and with Christmas not too far away now, it is time we looked at some ideas that you can gift someone living abroad in Oz.
Flower or Plant Delivery
Opening the door to a beautiful bouquet or a seasonal plant is a wonderful and memorable experience that you can give to your loved ones. Ordering online makes this accessible no matter where you are in the world. Whether you are looking for Sydney, Melbourne, Darwin, or Perth flower delivery, you can find local and national companies offering this service online. Christmas plants and flowers brighten up the home, introduce the seasonal spirit, and will be sure to put a smile on your loved one’s face when they arrive.
If you’re not sure whether the recipient will enjoy flowers, a hamper can be another great option. Several companies allow you to put together your very own hamper using products from their partners, ensuring that you can tailor-make it for your friend or family member. Fill the hamper with wine, cheese, biscuits, chocolates, candies, and anything else that you think they will love. The company will take care of delivery making it very easy for you to arrange.
Whilst a gift card can appear to be a little lazy, a far better idea is to signup and pay for a subscription service for your loved one. This could be a music subscription on a streaming app, perhaps even a year of Amazon free, or perhaps even a wine or coffee subscription. Those that deliver drinks and snacks often work well, because they are going to receive something at their home each month for a year. In this sense, it really is a gift that keeps on giving.
Something From Home
Living abroad is great, you find a new way of life, a new culture, and new experiences that you can have. With this being said, however, there is nothing like home and this can provide us with some ideas for gifts. You are still in good time to send something physical across to Australia for Christmas, and a taste of home could be the perfect option. Perishable items don’t work well here so think instead about a sports jersey or maybe even a painting of the place your loved one is from. These gifts from home will always be received well, and they are likely to find pride of place in the home of your friend or family member.
These are just some ideas that you could consider when buying a gift for a loved one who lives far away in Australia, which will you choose?
