Perhaps they are missing the unique sights and smells that can only be found Down Under...
...the fresh sea air; the lemon scented eucalypt; a mowed lawn or the smell of bitumen just after a thunder-storm?
Even with social media, it is sometimes hard to maintain friendships and close family relationships when they live so far away. You feel the distance, and sometimes you just want to share a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, or give them a hug.
But you can’t. Urgh!
So how about doing something that makes you feel more connected?
And not just on the internet.
In this blog we look at our most popular top 10 Australian gifts to send to USA friends and relatives.

If you need some inspiration, why not check out the Australia’s Melbourne University Press – who regularly publish fiction and non-fiction by leading Australian authors or about iconic Australian figures.
Or if you think they would like some Aussie Classics, why not try the online bookstore – Booktopia. They’ve pulled together a great list of 50 must read Australian novels.
