Seven Great Gifts for Men Who Love and Miss Australia
Every gift-giving season, you’ll hear the same thing: “men are just so hard to buy gifts for!”
It’s true, it can be a bit of a challenge. Men tend to already own the things they really need. And many men don’t have a great deal of interest in collecting new possessions.
But hey, is it really that difficult? It’s just gift-giving, after all. It should be fun.
And it will be. If you’re shopping for the Aussie gentleman in your life, I Still Call Australia Home has the perfect Australian-themed gifts.
What Makes a Great Gift for the Man in Your Life?
To be sure to put a big smile on his face, choose something that’s fun, yet practical. If you can eat it, wear it, or play with it, you’ve got the basis for a great gift for a man. And if it’s delightfully Aussie-themed — then you’re well on your way.
Here are seven terrific gifts-for-him ideas for the man that you’re shopping for.
A tie is one of the safest bets for an easy gift for a guy. It’s a true classic. Add in a kangaroo paw pattern with a slick black and white colour scheme, and you’ve got a real winner on your hands.
This 100 per cent cotton tie strikes a nice balance of fun and professional. It’s a good choice for a man who likes to stand out just a bit with his fashion choices.
Visit our full ties collection for some other fun choices. Each one features a bit of the colour and wildlife that make him proud to call Australia home, like flowering gum or eucalyptus print patterns.
Ties make for great gifts on Father’s Day or other special occasions. Shopping for a man who truly is tough to buy for? Opt for a tie as a way to play it safe while still sharing something unique and special.
Ties are great gifts for playing it safe, but if you’re feeling a little bit more bold, go with underwear. Chances are that he doesn’t yet own a pair of wombat underwear. And that’s a lacking that you can resolve with these goofy themed trunks.
This underwear is made from 100 per cent combed cotton, providing soft and breathable comfort. There’s also an ergonomically designed pouch to allow for a cozy fit.
Each pair comes in its own gift box, making this a great no-hassle buying experience for the gift-giver.
To top it all off, a one-dollar donation to an animal charity is made with each purchase.
Does the bloke you’re buying for have a different favourite animal? Then check out our full collection of underwear gifts to find the pair that will suit him best.
If you’re looking for a gift that’s a bit more creative and less predictable, why not give him a jigsaw puzzle?
Puzzles make especially great gifts for a family man. Putting a jigsaw puzzle together makes for a lovely group activity with the young ones. And it doesn’t involve your phones or the television. Next time the family gets together, open up the puzzle and spend an evening or two leisurely working through it.
The Aussie Aussie Aussie puzzle features a mix of furry friends ready to play their favourite sports. It’s a 1,000-piece model, so it’s sure to provide a bit of a challenge for your group.
In addition to the Aussie Aussie Aussie model, we’ve got a fun selection of other jigsaws. Each one displays a unique and artistic Australian theme. Pick your favourite for an excellent out-of-the-ordinary present.
Sometimes it’s best not to overthink things — just buy him a bag full of sweets!
The Tim Tam Bush Bag is a cute and functional little tote bag. Choose these delightfully stylish platypus swimmers or a different Aussie-themed print. The bag is high quality, 100 per cent cotton, and includes a zipper and an inner pocket.
Stuffed inside are some favourite goodies from the homeland: Tim Tams, Wallaby Bites, and some Australian native tea.
The Tim Tam Tote Bag is perfect for a man that’s living abroad and missing his favourite treats from back home.
Is the man you’re gift-buying for living abroad? Here’s a sure-fire way for him to show off his Aussie pride: a Vegemite t-shirt.
This shirt is a genuine licensed Vegemite-brand product. And it’s made in Australia — just like him.
There’s nothing that really sets us Aussies apart quite like our love for Vegemite. The global community hasn’t quite caught on yet — don’t they know it’s loaded with healthy B vitamins?
Well, the Australian man you’re shopping for knows what he likes and he’s proud to show it off. The Vegemite t-shirt text boldly proclaims “Tastes like Australia” next to three Vegemite bottles. Yum!
The Vegemite t-shirt will make a great gift for any man living or travelling outside of Australia. He’ll get to display his Australian pride and humour to the outside world of folks that haven’t yet discovered their own love for Vegemite.
Check out our entire Vegemite-themed collection for some more quirky gift ideas. We’ve got Vegemite notebooks, magnets, and stickers.
And if you want to keep things simple, we also offer Vegemite itself. Send the most authentic taste of Australia that there is.
Socks are another easy and classic option. Chances are the gentleman you’re gift-shopping for has a dresser drawer full of ancient socks with more holes than swiss cheese. It’s about time some of those were replaced.
These Australian Native Flower Socks feature a design by Peggy and Finn. The print pattern features a layered blue background and some flowers that represent some of the richness of Australian flora: Waratah, Protea, Gum leaves. And of course, Wattle, Australia’s national floral emblem.
The dark shades of blue make for a stylish look that goes great with dress slacks. And the mix of high-quality polyester, cotton, spandex and elastic materials makes for a cozy and long-lasting fit.
Socks can be goofy and fun, which makes them great gifts for men that like to show just a bit of flair.

Buying a gift for someone who’s far from home, setting up shop in a new apartment in a strange land? That can be a lonely task. So, get him a present that brings some cheerful Australian flair into his daily domestic life.
The Aussie Aussie Aussie bowl set includes four melamine bowls. Each one features a different beloved Australian critter.
And the koala, wombat, kangaroo, and platypus are all dressed up for their favourite sports. What could be cuter?
These bowls are a fun way to bring a bit of home to the breakfast table.
Because they’re made from sturdy melamine, they won’t shatter if you drop them. So, these bowls are great for kids, picnics, and camping trips. Perfect presents for the outdoorsy Australian guy who’s missing his home scenery.
