    A cousin of mine who lives in Australia is getting married. As a wedding gift, I thought I would get her a gift card from the Australian equivalent of Macy's or JC Penney (which are US stores). Usually, these gift cards can be ordered online, customized with a photo or greeting and delivered to her address.

    Please come up with lots of suggestions, as I know from past experience that many stores will not accept a credit card with an international billing address, even if the shipping address is located in the same country.

    Thanks in advance. :D

    There's also Myer (nice girl on the otherside of that link :)), and David Jones (relatively more upmarket than Myer).

    Thanks, Peterkro, but... They don't seem to allow me to buy a gift card online. In fact, I don't see a way to buy anything online using their website. They seem to be in-store only.

    Edit: Thanks all, Myers seem the best best. :)

    O.K. Myers definitely do them and on the payment page have "what country" for your credit card,so maybe give them a shot.

    Myers and David Jones are massive department store chains.

    Harvey Norman is good for certain things, as is Domayne.


    I'd associate Domayne mostly with furniture and appliances, while Harvey Norman is good for electronics and appliances.

    For things like pots and pans, dinner set (i.e. knives and such), bedding, etc, maybe Myers and David Jones are better. I really don't know. They have more stuff, but I don't really think of either department store for electronics.

    It would help if you knew what your cousin needed.
