Brits Abroad: Give Them A Taste of Home

Posted on March 02, 2014 by ;Paul Leach


Thousands of Brits head to Australia every year for the weather and the relaxed lifestyle, but they do not anticipate that they will miss certain traits of their home country. What they need is a little reminder of their quirky beginnings in the form of an online gift.


Jill Leach, Director of Australian Gifts Online, says, “Many Brits don’t anticipate the things they will miss the most about the UK: what they need is a little taste of home to enjoy while they are here in Australia. Our site stocks numerous little reminders of the British Isles, from royal teabags to traditional Scrabble merchandise, so any of the thousands of expats living here can enjoy a timely reminder of their beloved home country.”


With the recent birth of the new monarch, Prince George of Cambridge, Brits abroad may have felt more out of the loop than ever before. They might even have wanted to host a little tea party in the future King’s honour – step forward Australian Gifts Online, with their charming Royal Tea Party Teabags. Featuring William, Kate and baby George, this set of two teabags is the perfect way to feel in touch with those at home and celebrate the new addition to the British Royal Family; there is even a Queen Elizabeth teabag sold separately. Brits in the UK can send gifts to Australia, and those residing Down Under can purchase the novelty items and enjoy the sight of Queen Elizabeth reclining in their cuppa – a real touch of royal-tea!


What use is a teabag without a good mug to put it in? Self-stirring mugs are also available from Australian Gifts Online, for those who want to enjoy a quintessential cup of Earl Grey before their morning surf or afternoon barbie. The insulated mug keeps drinks toasty hot, and will stir the hot drink to perfection at just the touch of a button. Enjoy your English afternoon tea in this must-have gift!


Expats can also bring back memories of their favourite English pub with a clock in the shape of a dartboard. Just the sight of the game, which originated in England (and still one of the only sports that the Brits have dominated), is sure to transport anyone back to a Saturday afternoon of darts, pork scratchings and a pint of bitter down the pub. As gifts for men go, especially those who are missing the UK, this one ranks as one of the best.
