Top gifts from 20 worldwide destinations

Just a few year ago I was obsessed by the idea that I definitely need to bring something from my travels. I was doing shopping during the last days of my stay and it was quite depressing to find gifts… My salvation came with the time I went to Morocco in 2013 and I didn’t have a single minute to buy souvenirs, so I just let this rule go – shopping is not obligatory while travelling.
But if someone from the countries I’ve been visiting would ask me what I want as a gift I made a special list of the most desired stuff from:
.Japan.
  • plum wine
  • cosmetics
  • matcha tea
  • kimono
