I was stuck in Europe during lockdown and met my GF. Tonight she’s landing in AUS for the first time - what Aussie gifts should I greet her with??

  1. Chocolate mudcake . I ate so many of them when we were in Australia. And I wish we have them here. So as an European she might appreciate that.

  2. be fun if you had enough friends and got them to all wear suits and took her to kfc and pretended its a fancy resturant in australia

  3. She’s already been introduced to the mighty glory of Tim tams, used to get em in an Aussie goods shop in Copenhagen. Got some mint slices instead, next best thing

  4. Caramello koalas, a stuffed Aussie animal and a dorky Aussie themed jumper (yknow the kind that you can buy from the Vic Market)

  5. If only she could’ve got here before xmas so I could’ve given her one of those jumpers with the little bells that jingle when you walk haha.

  6. And you have to sing the song...I'm a groovy kind of koala, and all of my friends would agree, they call him Caramello...Koala

  7. +1 to this. My (Aussie) wife got me a kangaroo that has Aussie flags and those little koalas when I (American) first visited. It was amazing.

  8. Cherry Ripe, pavlova (not the easiest to transport though), lamingtons, Vegemite scroll, a stuffed drop bear

  9. She’s already been introduced to the mighty glory of Tim tams, used to get em in an Aussie goods shop in Copenhagen. Got some mint slices instead, next best thing

  10. A wholemeal cheesymite scroll. The wholemeal bread seems to work better with the Vegemite and cheese, and it's not as... sweet? as the white bread one.

  11. Don’t get her anything. Just go for a drive down to the Grampians, stop by a bakery for a meat pie and vanilla slice. She’ll get to see a bunch of Roos, emus, kookaburras, and koalas. Or can go down the great ocean road and grab some fish and chips and let the seagulls harass you. Check out the NGV, walk down the Yarra and have a drink at a pub. Or even just sit in your backyard with a tinny, hsp, talk shit about our slang and enjoy each other’s company after being apart for so long. Fuck, Victoria is an amazing place.

  12. Dunno about you, but I find Bundaberg Ginger Beer one of the best soft drinks in the world. It's a nice Made in Australia treat I think.

  13. Funny story. I met a girl when I slipped and collided with her on an icy street in Norway. Two years later she came out here to see Australia, fell in love with it, we got married and four kids, eight grandkids later, here we still are.

  14. Finally. 15-20 comments down before a proper answer. Also a Vegemite scroll from Baker's delight. And banh mi is more of a thing here than in other countries.

  15. From the wife and I, both being immigrants: sausage roll or pie, vegemite, Aussie pizza, pink salt, manuka honey, thongs, uggs, and a huntsman spider from the shed (haha). Congrats & Good luck!

  16. As an immigrant this is the closest to what I'd give family visiting: Thongs (making a point to tell her they're thongs, not flipflops), a stubby holder (everyone needs their own) and a pie for a snack.

  17. At the airport gift shops you can buy real kangaroo ball sacks. They're used as little coin purses. Great gift for any foreigner.

  18. She’s already been introduced to the mighty glory of Tim tams, used to get em in an Aussie goods shop in Copenhagen. Got some mint slices instead, next best thing

  19. Vanilla slice from Avi's bakery. Banh mi from bun bun. Flat white from any coffee place. Ham cheese and tomato toastie from Ollie's
