Gift prices range from below $50 to above $500 but they’ve been handpicked for their uniqueness and cool factor. Better still, they are all available in Australia. Read on, you might even want to get something for yourself!

4. Megawheels Hoverboard

Hey, it’s 2019. According to Back To The Future we should all be using hoverboards by now. The purpose of a hoverboard is to get you from A to B and to look cool doing it.

Even more so if your board comes with flashing LED lights and bluetooth compatibility like this Lamborghini style hoverboard.

Light and portable you can use it at the park, the beach, when you’re camping or even in your backyard. Coins, jewellery, gold doubloons – who knows what you will find?

7. Picnic Rug to support people battling the drought
