Christmas Guide - Day 6: Sydney in a Box - A Gift of memories for the Sydney Lover in your Life

Whether you are travelling to visit family or just sending your Christmas gifts across the globe, there is nothing like a little gift from the place you call home. I love to spread the joy of Sydney to my friends and family in other countries so I am going to show you the best places to find a piece of Sydney for you to share with loved ones.


Sydney’s most famed Saturday markets are the Paddington Markets on Oxford Street in Paddington. It has been the launch pad for many designers and it is a local favourite for finding the perfect gift. For handmade, one-of-a-kind gifts with a touch of Sydney you will find it here.

My absolute favourite stall is one that sells beautiful photographs of Sydney from present day and from the past. There are also comparison collections of iconic landmarks throughout the years, such as Bondi Beach, The Rocks, Sydney Harbour and Manly Beach.

For more than 12 years Eugene Tan (better known as “uge”) has been shooting beach and surfing life in Bondi, Sydney’s famed beach. His amazing surf and underwater imagery of the Australian surf are sure to bring back
memories. You can buy prints in his Bondi Gallery or visit the Aquabumps website.
