    Hi dear Ladies,

    We are on our vacation in India and would like to take back some Gifts for DH's managers and friends. There are 4 of them in total. But I have absolutely no idea what kind of stuff to buy.

    Please throw in your suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, hoep you are having great vacation. It all depends upon the gender.

    Women: it is easy. can buy Kurti/bangles/cloth or Shantinikatan purses etc.

    Men: t is hard. I got small elephants or temple or some famous building liek Red Fort or Taj Mahal pictures etc. Noting too personal.

    One of my boss wanted ganesha. I bought for him.


    Good luck. Happy shopping.

    Hi,
    If you are in Chennai, you can either walk into Victoria Technical House, at Mount Road, before Spencer Plaza, or go to Sundari Silks at T.Nagar. You can find many artifacts at different ranges of price, to suit your needs. You can pick finely worked hand crafted items for both men/women.

    They can be used on work table tops as decorative pieces or utility goods too.

    Uma
