An honest Christmas list

Flying home for the holidays? Need a little help with your Christmas shopping list?

We’re a nation of expats. We get it.

If you’ve turned down another beautiful Perth summer for a white winter on the other side of the world, or a mix of all seasons on the other side of the country, we’ve got your Christmas list covered so you don’t rock up to Christmas dinner empty handed. 

Or maybe you’re escaping the relatives for a tropical island getaway? Skip the family gifts then and go on and treat yourself. Here’s our ultimate gift guide for the holiday season. You’re welcome.

For Mum


We know she deserves an island. Barring that, and in the words of Jackie Kennedy, “Pearls are always appropriate”. You can’t really go past the range of Western Australian pearls at  Australian Way. It’s the all-class option that will give your Mum a taste of our great state.


Let the team at JR/Duty Free guide you on the latest fragrances that are capturing the senses. Or stick with one of the many available scents that will forever stand the test of time and that any mother will love.

Samsonite purse

When you think ‘security’ you don’t tend to think of class and style, do you? Well, Samsonite is here to change that. Their range of purses includes RFID blocking to protect unwanted card skimming. You’ll find a selection at Rolling Luggage.

For Dad

Star Wars Death Star Bluetooth levitating speaker

Need we say more? It will always be a good time for Star Wars merchandise. The Star Wars Death Star Bluetooth levitating speaker is available at Link, along with app-enabled droids that you can control with your smart device or let them patrol on their own. We’ve tested them, they’re worth it. This, your Dad must have.

Model airplane

For a simpler pleasure, a model airplane is what you need. You know your Dad would love one. There are plenty of designs to choose from at Australian Way.

For your sister

Moleskin notebooks

If she’s any type of creative that is jotting down ideas on the regular, Link’s moleskin notebooks are ideal. You’ll also find some adorable Australiana-themed notebooks at Australian Way.

Lonely Planet ‘Best in Travel 2018’

Because if she’s not travelling, she should be. WHSmith and Link have you covered with a year’s worth of travel inspiration in this book, as well as travel guides for every region. 


If your sister is a bit of a fashionista, let the team at Sunglass Hut help you pick out some shades. Their range covers designer brands, the latest trends and high-quality fashion sunglasses. 

For your brother

Noise cancelling headphones

Because he doesn’t listen to anything you say anyway, you may as well give him quality headphones. You’ll find extensive ranges of tech accessories at Link and Gadgetshop.

The latest crime thriller

More than just your average convenience store, Link holds the latest top 50 reads so you can be sure to find a genre to suit every reader. WHSmith has also got you covered with an extensive range of new release novels and a ‘buy 1 chart book and get 1 half price’ deal.

For your seven aunties

Australian-themed kitchen goods

It’s probably the only time you’ll see them all year and you really don’t know what they like at all. Don’t make it weird, get them tea towels. Everybody needs tea towels. Australiana-themed ones are just the ticket. Australian Way has got you covered here.

For the little ones

Tiny UGG boots

These are when you’re wanting to pull out the best auntie/uncle card. Just quietly, there’s no doubt you’ll win with this Aussie staple. Check out the range at Australian Way.

Anything at Zoodle

Zoodle is dedicated to toys and games for kids, so you can find everything you need here for all the little people in your life. They have the whole gamut of interactive and educational gifts to keep kids entertained.

For everyone else

Plush toys of every Australiana variety

These are winners for everyone really. They’re also great for your international friends who think we all have kangaroos in our backyards (keep that one spreading, it’s a goodie). All your Australiana-themed gifts can be found at Australian Way.
