Melbournalia - Aussie gifts that don't suck
"With one third of my family in the States, and the other third in the UK, I have a lot of call for Australian, and Melbourne, themed gifties. Thankfully (for the family, as well as me) Melbournalia exists.
Take all of the scary souvenir shops on Swanston St, feed them into your big Opposites Machine - and hey presto! Melbournalia. It's a great shop, and you should check it out if you can - but they also have a really good online store.
Both are full of the sorts of things that *rarely* make it to the actual recipient, if my latest purchase is anything to go by (hello brother, yes you got your awesome Skimming Stones tea-towels, BUT ONLY JUST)."
