What can be brought from Thailand as a gift - cosmetics, medicines, food

I fill up my Thailand Travel Guide another answer to the question what can be broughtfrom Thailand as a gift or souvenir to yourself or other people. Naturally, all from personal experience. So, everyone has different tastes, and it is precisely the advice to give that is ungrateful. I'll tell you what he brought himself.

What I brought from Ty

Cosmetics and health

  • Deodorant Stone, sold in Tesco / BigC.
  • Shampoo, soap, hand cream, shower gel with coconut smells. Took already at the airport in the cosmetics shop.
  • Local toothpaste of herbs. Took in from Tesco / BigC. A specific thing, not everyone will like it.
  • Tiger Balm balm as our asterisk, in 7-eleven.
  • Thai inhalers for the nose are sold in every 7-eleven. Very useful and popular as gifts.

Food

  • Dried mango and tamarind from 7-eleven.
  • Spices for Pad Thai and Tom Yam from Tesco / BigC.
  • Coconut oil from supermarkets. I bought food because it is many times cheaper, and there is no need to look for it.

What can be brought from Thailand

The list is not quite universal, but suddenly you will find something for yourself. By the way, the prices for everything are quite low, you can buy boxes straight.

Since we are talking about all sorts of small gifts, it is notI can not tell you about life hacking. When shopping for Aliexpress, you can receive cashback up to 11% through the EPN service (they have a browser plugin, an application for phones). I wrote everything in great detail in my instructionswhat it is and how to use it.

Earrings and other silverware are enoughprofitable to buy on Khaosan, the prices are good. But I can not say how good the sample and all that. Fenka sometimes wear himself, and many of my friends, acquaintances, too, so in my case, too, a universal gift.

Shampoos, creams and other attributes -universal gift, suitable for almost anyone. Specially looked labels to do it in Thailand. What kind of cosmetics you can bring from Thailand you figure it out. In supermarkets, the choice is huge, both international brands and local ones. If you forgot to buy, then you will have such a chance at the airport, there are shops there. Prices will be higher, but what to do.

You can also bring coconut oil, andYou can take food in the supermarket, not cosmetic. His smell is very pleasant, and it can be used not only in cooking, but also on the body. Just food is several times cheaper and the volume is more decent than 250 ml or 500 ml. It seems to me that such a gift is quite universal;

I actually now switched to coconut oilcooking (it has a very high burning temperature) and it is one of the most useful (and less harmful). Thai is over, ordering organic on iHerb. Well, this is so, note.

I got acquainted with stone deodorants for a long time, the most important feature is that they are odorless. True, not very convenient to use, as it is necessary to moisten.

From brown toothpaste dragged sinceI tried it, so when I live in Tae I only use it, and then I take it home for myself and others. Her taste is not quite normal, but in my opinion it is very pleasant.

It is often asked which medicines to bring fromThailand, and not just the question arises. I myself love to bring Thai balms and inhalers. The last one is a bomb! Well, a very handy thing, but worth a penny. Balsams for colds is also a good thing, I use them and the like always when I'm sick.

By the way, jars with screw capsmuch more comfortable than the classic "Russian" star, which you can barely open sometimes. And if we speak not about Tiger Balm, but about Tiffirub, then it is not burning at all, and after it there is no irritation on the skin, even for a child. You can buy at any pharmacy, minimarket 7/11 or in BigC / Tesco in the medicine department.

Seasoning is a good thing, do not spoil for a long time, butthen give me memories of the hot Thailand and its cuisine. There is only one negative, almost all monosodium glutamate. On the other hand, in Asia, everyone is accustomed to this substance and treat it like salt.

Something similar is being sold in Russia for making rolls. Only in Tae are these algae fried and with different tastes.

Multicolored rice looks very funny, but it tastes nothing special. His only drawback is that he himself is heavy for luggage, when every kilogram on the account.

Green tea can be taken from any Asiancountries, almost everyone drinks it now and it never happens a lot. If you do not take in especially tourist places, it will cost a penny. Otherwise, it is cheaper to order from China on Aliexpress, well, or in a special tea shop, if you are a connoisseur and understand the difference between cheap and expensive teas.

By the way, I personally liked green more or less.tea from BigC / Tesco, there is literally a couple of species. No, it is quite ordinary, so for every day, it is not completely found, but a box with inscriptions in Thai, so for a souvernier-gift will go.

What fruits to bring from Thailand? Of course, yellow mango, live or dried as a last resort. In Moscow it costs 300-400 rubles for 1 piece and few people bought it. I assure you, you are unlikely to find a better fruit for a gift, a taste understandable to a Russian person. There are all sorts of rambutans, longons, dragon fruits, which have more exotic names and appearances, but they are not at all universal in taste compared to mangoes. Although as an exotic very much, one appearance is worth something.

In general, the idea of ​​fruit to me the mostI like it, because it is very practical, it will be eaten by anyone. You can gather with relatives and friends and eat a couple of kilograms, thereby marking your return from vacation. Only the advantage may be in the baggage, and there are also some problems with the packaging, so as not to pass it along the way. I recommend taking a little greenish, or already yellow, but still solid, then it will just come in a week and will be very tasty.

With durian harder. It is impossible in theory, and the smell is very difficult to neutralize, even when wrapped in a dozen packets. However, once in a while someone delivers. I have not yet risked.

P.S. Be sure to write in a comment that you bring from Thailand to yourself and your loved ones? Share, take note :)

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
