Ah, my father doesn’t drink. Heh. He would’ve laughed if he had read this
Foods he like…I used to take beef jerky back with me. He definitely liked that. But then the issue of them not being halal came up so my brother is the one who’d end up eating it. And he’s already got HIS gift (a pc graphic card).
The food thing is not a bad idea. But my father would probably think it wasteful for me to spend $100 buying him food. It could be part of his gift though. Like $20 in food of some kind (what kind is a good question…)
In Morocco they do lots of beautiful leatherwork and metalwork. Most people bring back tiny mirrors, boxes, or leather stuff. Even if he doesn’t need a new wallet right now, one brought from Casablanca, all engraved, would be special.
Heck, then the big book with pics is a sure bet. Worked even for my SIL. Worked even for her Mom!
I like bringing the ones that aren’t something people are used to (consciously) seeing in every movie. See if you can find one about the town you live in. Makes for great conversation, everybody asks “have you been here?”
