Gift Ideas to get from India to US for friends and family

I started this post as several readers asked me what would be items that you can get from India which are not generally available or are unique and economical. Cricket Ball My Friend Smita suggested few that made sense to me , since her husband plays cricket , he always get this. I remember  seeing this cricket ball nicely framed and put in nice glass box in an office I visited sometime back. It looks very elegant , with nice leather sew and string. Cricket is religion of India and there can be nothing perfect representation. Try to get the box put in nice transparent glass box . You can also get a bat if you have space or if you don’t have space try this miniature autograph bat, She also mentioned panama hat for cricketers , I did not find anything special about these hats but I mentioned it Copper Glasses and Jug My whole family swear by it and health benefits of these copper glasses and jug. We use it quite often , It is actually quite fashionable, My wife earlier use to think they are cheap and old fashioned. Apart from having health benefits, these copper vessels surely adds beauty to the place. The reason of getting these from India is because you get more variety, shapes, designs and most importantly, at affordable prices from local markets. You get the regular sized glasses just for Rs 150- 200 per piece from any utensil shop in India. They are also available online here These can be a nice and unique gift for your friends or colleagues here....
