Gifts for Foreign Colleagues

Postby RRMummy » Wed Sep 08, 2010 10:26 am

Hi All,

I need to gather some ideas here of what gifts (souvenirs/food) have you given to your Foreign friends/colleagues as I'm running out of ideas already... best if you could suggest gifts that are liked by Germans and China Chinese. :wink:

Budget wise... depends on individual or group.. but please flood me with your ideas. :please:

TIA :celebrate:

Trying to remember..

Singapore souvenirs from Chinatown like the thermometer plate, the Merlion mini skewer holders (sorry not sure what it is called), orchid broaches, magnets..

Food from Bee Cheng Hiang like bak-kwa, the mini shrimp / fish rolls, the crispy fish snacks..

What else is uniquely Singapore to give ah? :idea:

Maybe i should just forget abt the uniquely Singapore part?
