Gifts to give to friends when traveling to their country
February 10, 2014 3:11 PM Subscribe
I'm going to Turkey from the US, and have a ton of friends there- some that are quite close and I'll be getting nicer presents for (perfume, nice American brand named clothes), and others that I'm not as close to but will still see and need to give a small gift to. Please help me figure out what that small gift should be.

I tried checking if this had been asked before, and this
is the best I could find but street children/host family aren't what I'm going for here.
I'm talking about the kind of small gift you might give someone for $5- $10- a small box of chocolates, if I was giving a present to someone in the US, or some flowers. I want a bunch of items that I can give to anyone- man or woman, irrespective of personality, and have it be appreciated if not for its uniqueness, then that I thought to bring something at all. But flowers don't go across borders and chocolates may or may not be the best option considering there's all that good European stuff there.
I would prefer the items to be something small to limit how much room it takes up in my baggage despite the fact that I'll buy ten or so of them. Things like scarves are out because they're so easy to find everywhere there.
