Here’s some ideas to get you started…
Know a movie buff? What about a Dendy Club Membership? Your $18 annual membership buys you extra benefits on products and services near your local Dendy. Or, if you’re in Melbourne, the Nova Privilege Card Membership ($13 a year) gives the card holder and guest a discount entry all year round at Cinema Nova plus other benefits and discounts.
For the art lover NGV offers membership for $90 a year or even better value: $105 for a duo membership (that’s you and one other). Members score LOADS of discounts, free stuff and entry to events!
How about the petrol head in your life? For $60 (tax-deductible) Greenfleet will plant 17 native trees to neutralise the greenhouse gas emissions that the recipient’s car produces in one year. They’ll send you a Gift Certificate, together with an explanatory letter, their latest newsletter, and a car sticker.
TEAR Australia have more useful gifts than you can poke a stick at and they’re priced from $5. If you’re really into to gifts, stop and think for a minute about how much joy these gifts can bring to communities around the world; a new career (beauty therapy training), education (a library) or the simple gift of sustainable food: some chickens. I love this gift catalogue!
Being a member of Amnesty International means joining a worldwide movement of people over one million strong who are a powerful force in the fight for human rights. The perfect pressie for your socially concious friend of relative!
Museum Victoria membership starts at $46 or you might like their $60 household membership (bargain!) Membership gives you free entry to: Melbourne Museum, Scienceworks (includes special exhibitions), The Immigration Museum, Royal Exhibition Building (tours only), Melbourne Planetarium (one visit per year) and Victoria University High Voltage Theatre at Scienceworks (one visit per year). That’s excellent value! You’ll also score reciprocal free entry to seven interstate and overseas museums, discounts on purchases, parking and more! This really is the perfect family gift.
Celebrate your special occasion with gifts that create positive change for women and their families in developing countries. Give Gifts of Change! IWDA’s program priorities are to increase women’s skills, improve their livelihood and health, combat gender-based violence and encourage sustainable environmental management. These are very feel good gifts.
