Dear all, as many of you know, it is usual to give presents to colleagues, especially when traveling to Asia.
In the past I have given wine, books, and Australian chocolates. The problem with wine is the weight and the limited amount that can be taken to some countries. I have also seen bags coming off the carousal leaking red fluid (ugh!). Chocolate melts and many people in Asia do not have a fondness for sweet items. With books, as I have authored a few now, giving my own does have a real personal touch and always well received, especially when signed, but I have given these away to most of my close colleagues who I will be visiting this year. Plus books are not all that light.
Thus I would be very interested to hear what you may have given away as gifts in the past, especially those that have been well received. Typically I would spend under AUD$100 as a guide.
Appreciate your thoughts.
