Ideas For Gifts To Send Home


Recommended Posts

I have been away from my home country for several years now. I don't send Christmas or even birthday presents any more. Instead, I collect an assortment of gifts over a period of time and send

friends and family a "surprise" package. I might include one or two more expensive gifts to suit the person's particular tastes and interests, some smaller gifts that I think everyone will like and perhaps some novelties, like a pack of chewing gum with an unusual flavour.

What are some of the interesting gifts you've sent from Chiang Mai ? Anything that's been a notable success ? Please also tell us where you found them, if possible.

Durian flavoured condoms? Read about them once, are they still available?

Tinned insects - definitely a novelty in most western countries.

...or an almost unused tin of deck stain (if anyone wants it, they're welcome)

Where can you buy the tinned insects ?

Saw them for sale in the market area selling local products on the groundfloor of Central Dept Store building. The area right at the back, going from Tops to Lotus Hotel.
