For those who love cosmetics

This might seem totally un-glamourous, however, have you ever noticed the exotic array of fragrances and beauty products you can find at airports? You’ll find hand creams, body oils and delicious face products. Perfect for Mum or the Mrs!

For the traveller

Maybe your gift receiver has a trip planned themselves- if so, you’re in the perfect place!! Why not put together an ultimate travellers pack complete with a map, a travel guide, a plane pillow and travel-sized cosmetics!

Something local

Airports are renowned for selling famous local foods or goods. In many Australian airports, you can find local edible goodies such as macadamia nuts or macadamia infused goods. Similarly, you’ll find marvellous local stones such as opals that reflect region specific agriculture.

For the sweet tooth

Finally, you can find some pretty damn delicious treats at most airports. From artisan biscuits to crowd-pleasing chocolates and everything in between.
