Exchange Family Thank You Gifts from Australia sent overseas: Our Top picks

Our top pick of Australian thank you gift hampers to send to host families overseas in the UK, USA and more.

I think we can all agree sending your child overseas to experience life in another country with a host family can be a pretty daunting experience. You know that the family they're staying with has been checked and is part of a certified program, but is your son or daughter going to get along with them and have a good time? Will they be well looked after?

It's a big relief when you find out the family they've been staying with has taken great care of them and you know they've had a wonderful time.

So how do you say Thank-you to the host family with something from Australia that they can all enjoy?

In this blog we show you the most popular gifts our customers send.


Top 3 gift hampers to send to families overseas as a thank-you

 

#1 - Welcome to Australia Gift Hamper - $199.00 + shipping

This is our most popular gift hamper to say thank you from Australia for hosting our child overseas.

It has gourmet treats all the family can enjoy plus a fun (but tasteful) Aussie slang tea towel as a permanent thank you in the heart of their kitchen.

Delivery of this hamper to most overseas destinations takes between 2-5 working days, as we express deliver through DHL Express and track the parcel until it's arrived and signed for on your behalf. 

If you are sending this to the UK - terrific! We keep the delicious Penfolds Bin 2 Shiraz Mataro wine in here for you. If you are sending anywhere else outside Australia, just take out the alcohol in the check-out process and we'll discount the price. This is because due to strict customs rules we generally can't send alcohol to other countries - but the good news is the rest of it we will get there in a jiffy!
