Posting Christmas Gifts
November is here and the holiday season is nearly upon us. Now is the time to prepare gifts for relatives and friends living far away.
If you would like your gifts and cards to arrive at their destination before Christmas, our local Australia Post at 782 Glenferrie Road recommends that you post large parcels at least three weeks before 25 December for overseas, and one week for domestic. If sending greeting cards, allow at least nine business days for overseas and six for domestic.
When choosing gifts to send overseas, you can find a range of Australiana items in Glenferrie Hawthorn.
Homing Instincts has an array of greeting cards, Christmas ornaments and other holiday merchandise featuring classic Australian animals. Blackbird & Fox stock kitchen accessories made from Australian timber and adorable Australian animal puppets. Among their huge range of homewares, at The Works you can buy Melbourne and Australian themed tea towels. My Red Shop have a selection of Australian key chains, tea towels and toys featuring Aboriginal artwork, koalas, and more.
