Melbourne Gifts & Souvenirs: 12 Quirky Melbourne Gifts you can find from US

Posted on

Ok, we get it. Not everyone is from Melbourne and we love other States too of Australia too. I mean the Opera House in Sydney is just an icon in itself and who can forget how damn sunny and cool Brisbane is? We can go on about the other States but we are from Melbourne and we just wanna spread the love a bit of our great city. We want to give you gifts that tell you a little bit about our us because we just want you to have a really great time here. Or maybe we just want to remind ourselves about this city and have a few iconic pieces in our own home. Whatever the reason or need to gift - we have shared our Top 12 Quirky Gifts from US about Melbourne with you.

 

1. iconic screenprint - plastic $84.99

Loved for its function as much as its form, the Nylex sign proves you don't necessarily have to be beautiful to be admired. We don' t have many of these beauties left because they have been around for awhile so get in quick to put a Nylex up on your wall.

3. iconic tea towel - Melbourne coffee snob $26.99

If you were born in Melbourne does that automatically make you coffee snob? Have you ever considered what pressure the espresso machine is set to? Or if those beans are single origin? Melbourne’s coffee culture is renowned and has even created icons of its own, Pellegrini's for example. We don't know if Melbourne has the best coffee in the world but we do know it has some of the most enthusiastic coffee drinkers in the world. So sit back, grab your paper and enjoy your morning latte. You deserve it.

4. iconic teapot - Melway's $39.99

$2.50 was expensive for a map book when the first edition of the Melway was released in 1966. And 39 editions later, as Melbourne has continued its sprawl, the Melway has grown right along with it –still the most popular map book on the market. Dubbed “the Melways” by the Melbournians who use them, somehow these books have made it into the glove box, boot or backseat of almost every car in the city. Spot more icons at 44 C10 MCG, 43 H9 Flinders Street, 44 D12 Nylex Sign and 44 H7 Skipping Girl sign.

12. iconic card - Flinder's Street $1.99

Writing a card might seem a little bit old school now but they are the perfect way to wish your friends and family from near and far best wishes for any occasion.

And because we like to be just that little bit different and give you something more - each of these card & envelope packs come with a thin wooden printed icon on the front of the card that can be used again by the receiver of your card. Nice one. We have carefully added a little hole on the top of each of these wooden pieces so that it can be used as a decoration, or a gift tag on their next gift. Now that is what we call recycling in a nice kind of way.
