With Christmas fast approaching (seriously, how is it that time again already?!) it’s time to start planning for some serious holiday shopping!

And, what better way to say “Merry Crimbo!” than with some true blue, fair dinkum Aussie gifts?

From the quirky to the uber-cute. Here are some of our favourite Aussie-inspired gifts that are perfect for gifting to friends and relatives overseas or anyone proud to be an Aussie. There is even something for Uncle Kev!

1. Goldie + Ace Sonny Australia cap mustard/Teal – $39.95

Possibly one of the coolest ways to sport an Aussie hat and of course it is only in kid size. This Mustard and Teal cap from Goldie + Ace. The Australia cap is a cool throwback inspired accessory made from cotton twill with an adjustable strap and brass clasp.

They have plenty of other googies all made and designed in Australia and with super cool designs. It’s just a shame that some of these don’t come in adult sizing!

2. Tara Treasures – Australian Animals A Finger Puppet Set – $32

Ok we would be lying if we said we weren’t obsessed with these super cute felt Australian Animals. Featuring a Kangaroo, Koala, Emu, Kookaburra and Platypus, these amusing pretend play finger puppets are a favourite amongst little ones.

The finger puppets are designed in Australia and made in Nepal from 100% organic sheep wool, hence they are safe for use with children.

3. Outback Dreamers Short Sleeve Bodysuit – $32

Kookaburras, Koalas and Kangaroos sit nestled among the Aussie bush – can you get more Aussie than that! The sweetest and most versatile bodysuit that can be worn with or without leggings. While we have featured the bodysuit, be sure to explore the link for the full range of Aussie-themed prints on clothing, swaddles, bibs, hats and more.

4. Mambo Australia X Vegemite clothing collection – various prices

One of the most interesting yet pleasing collabs we have seen this side of Christmas is the latest collab from beloved Australian lifestyle and surfwear brand Mambo and the legendary Aussie staple, VEGEMITE!

This limited additional collection features Surfing Koalas, Vegemite toast exploding from toasters, Shakas and Kookaburras. Each design pays homage to Australia’s favourite breakfast spread, in true-blue Mambo style.

We think it’s a pretty cute excuse to go matchy matchy with the kids for Christmas or to surprise Dad and Uncle Kev with shirts perfect for a summer barbie.

The entire Mambo Australia X Vegemite apparel collection is available exclusively at BIG W (online & in-store).

5. Make Me Iconic Ice Cream Set

If Vegemite isn’t your thing (shame on you – it’s iconic) then perhaps Ice Creams from your childhood might be. Well for playtime at least. These super cute wooden ice creams for imaginary play feature designs that reflect the Bubble-o-bill, Rainbow Paddle Pop, Choc Paddle pop and Golden Gaytime.  The only thing better would be the real thing!

6. Nursery Mobile Hanging – Australian Animals – $75

A beautiful dreamy Australian piece for your baby’s nursery or to send to someone overseas with a new baby on the way. It’s made from felt so super light and features a Koala, Platypus, Kangaroo, Echidna, Kookaburra, Eucalyptus leaves and Pompoms. It is the perfect handmade gift for an Australian-themed nursery.

10. Kip and Co X Ken Done

You didn’t think we could do an Aussie-inspired gift guide without a mention of Ken Done, did you? A staple in most households in the late ’80s and an iconic feast of colour and patterns. The picnic blanket is the perfect family gift that folds up neatly into an easy-to-carry shoulder bag. The only thing left for you to do is to pack the wine and cheese!
