Tips / Other

Travel offers ample opportunity to collect excellent holiday gifts for family and friends. Whether you’re discovering the night markets of Asia or strolling through the streets of Europe, there’s a little something for everyone.

 

Rare spices are an excellent gift option for those you love, and they’re easy to find. Food markets are full of local spices you can buy and bring home. They’re a great gift for anyone who loves to cook, or if you just want to ignite an interest in a foreign cuisine.

 

Handcrafted goods are another great choice for holiday gifts. Chinese fans and lamps make for beautiful presents, or you can bring home an authentic New Guinea woodcarving for friends. Research what the locals make, which is better better than anything you’ll find here at home.

 

Of course, you can never go wrong with alcohol. There are plenty of countries around the world that serve incredible beer and spirits that cannot be found at home. Who doesn’t love a stiff drink over the holidays? If you can get your hands on a bottle of Westvleteren 12 you’ll be a hero among your beer-loving friends.

 

When all else fails, food is the safest choice. You can’t go wrong with a Teuscher chocolate bar from Switzerland or authentic marinara sauce straight from Italy. Food stalls around the world sell candies of all kinds that can be safely stored for travel home, so stock up while you’re exploring the world so you have plenty to bring home for the holidays.
