    Re: Gift Idea for family in India

    for elders we can also get compartmented medicine boxes...i got such boxes for my grandparents when i went to india...you get them at the dollar stores..
    this would be of help to them as they needn't have to struggle to search for the medicines each time...arrange the medicines for a week and get done!

    Hi, I am planning to visit India next month. I am from Maharashtra. I have 2 year old son. We are going to visit India after 3 years. We have so many relatives & friends in India. I want to give gifts mostly to all of them. Please suggest some ideas. And what things we should take with us while traveling with 2 year old son? Please help me.

    Hi Padma! i think you should buy chocolates for the kids and dry fruits for elder people. And for youngster buy some electronic gadgets like i-pods for boys and for girls buy makeup products.

    If you have a wholesale store like "Costco" or "savers" you can get lotions and creams and perfumes in 3/6 bulk packs. People in india love cookies too! You can also try stores like marshalls, tjmaxx and ross for makeup, scarves, hangbags for little girls in your family.

    Hi,
    You can buy some small kitchen aids like peeler,small knife,grater which are very useful and handy.Also you can get almonds,raisins and pistas in big packs and repack them so that you can give to 4 or 5 people.I am sure everyone will appreciate it.
