If you have friends and family overseas and are looking for a uniquely Australian gift to send them this Christmas, I have the perfect selection for you from some wonderfully talented local Etsy makers. Is a loved one far away and a teensy bit homesick? Send them a little handmade taste of home.
I love how these designers, artists and makers have interpreted classic Aussie motifs and icons in fresh contemporary ways. I’m feeling a little patriotic and would love all of these myself. (I’ll have to put in a request to Santa!) I’ve selected items that are easy to post, and if you ask the seller nicely, they may even gift wrap and post it directly to your giftee.
