Brisbane is a unique holiday destination for beach goers, nature lovers and business travellers alike. Fridge magnets and pens don't make the cut as thoughtful souvenirs anymore, so celebrate the city's diversity with a range of uniquely Brisbane gift ideas that everyone can enjoy.

Brisbane Visitor Information & Booking Centre: opal jewels and handmade kangaroos

While you're planning your stay with the staff from the Brisbane Visitor Information and Booking Centre, take a look at the unique local buys in the cabinets on the ground floor. Taking home a kangaroo might be frowned upon, but the ultra adorable, locally-crafted plush roos will be welcomed with open arms. The Indigenous printed toys are handmade with love by a couple in Toowoomba so you know they're dinky-di Australian.

The Brisbane Opal Museum also stock a selection of beautiful pendants, rings and earrings for that special someone back home.

Dello Mano brownies

There are brownies, and then there are Dello Mano brownies. Using only the finest ingredients, this family-owned business bakes a range of delicious sweet treats from its kitchen in Teneriffe.

Priceline Pharmacy, Various locations 

Why did a pharmacy make the list? Well it's because of a little red tube of joy known as Lucas Pawpaw Ointment. This balm can be found in the pockets and handbags of Brisbanites, Australians and now people around the world. Dr Lucas first discovered the healing powers of the pawpaw in Brisbane in 1906, with his winning formula remaining unchanged for over 100 years.
