Ever thought a ‘care package’ is something thoughtful you’d like to send to a loved one overseas?
There are all those great tastes they’ll be missing from Australia, and imagine the smile on their face when they receive it!
You may be short on time though... after all, going to the supermarket is the easy bit... but getting the right size box, gift wrapping, and queueing at the Post Office in your lunch hour? Good luck!
... and then there's the customs forms and international restrictions on what you can send; plus taxes and duties to worry about when physically sending a gift overseas.
Below are some Australian care package ideas, including those we send overseas every day.
We hope you enjoy them, and it inspires you to cure a homesick heart today!
What if I told you there’s a company that sorts it all out for you?!
Yay. All you have to do is choose the package that best suits you, give them the address and they sort out express shipping, tracking and even pay any taxes or duties due in the country you’re sending to.
#2 BEST AUSTRALIAN CARE PACKAGE IDEAS: ANYTHING YOU CAN’T READILY GET IN OVERSEAS SUPERMARKETS
We all know Aussies like to travel.
So it’s no surprise that major supermarkets in the UK and USA stock traditionally Australian items like Vegemite andTim Tams.
However here’s a (pictorial) list of all the other items that are uniquely Australian and generally quite tricky to find overseas. They’re perfect fodder for your next care package. You can even make your own Australian gift hamper here.
#3 BEST AUSTRALIAN CARE PACKAGE IDEAS: TIM TAM SWAG BAGS
For something a bit different you might not have sent before, why not send a tim tam swag bag?
After all, I've never met anyone who doesn't love tim tams!
I mean, outside the Hemsworth brothers, they're our best export 😉
Did you know that Tim Tamswere gaining so much popularity in the USA, that the Americans thought they'd have a go making them over there themselves - however rumouor has it their version is much sweeter, and just does not taste as good.
So a Tim Tam Hamper will ALWAYS go down a treat, quite literally!
Arnotts are always updating their tim tam flavours so it's worth checking back in from time to time to see what's new.
