I will be going to Turkey in 10 days, and would like to bring simple gifts (from my country, the United States) for the people I meet.


 


When I was in Turkey about a year ago, I was shown such kindness and generosity by strangers.  A few time some Turkish people we didn´t know at all even gave part of their lunch to us!  (Which tasted fabulous, I might add.)  I wished I had something I could have given them from the United States.


 


Here is a list of ideas I have come up with, but I would like more suggestions:


·     Postcards from the US


·     Coins from the US


·     Tea from the US


 


 Thanks!

For friendly strangers, especially children, I give packs of gum or containers of mints (tic tacs, etc).  Ladies like American brands of handcream.  Also, cigarettes are appreciated.

If you are visiting friends, you should get more thoughtful gifts.  Many teenagers like t-shirts from America.  Sports teams or from where you live (such as Florida, Disney), etc.

I hope this helps.  Have fun!
