What to bring as gifts for relatives

by nnmom9799 Online Now Jul 30, 2011 at 8:42 PM

We are visiting my husband's relatives who live east of Bucharest in mid-August. We need to bring gifts for a 9-year old girl, an 11-year old boy and his 70-year old Aunt. We live in New York state (6 hours from New York City). Any suggestions for gifts? Are there any brand names that are desired by kids or older adults? We will probably spend about50 US per gift. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Well , I agree , most things can be found in Romania but maybe at a higher price than in the US...(as in brands)

    Kids love technology and sweets and also the older people in general love sweets:) especially if they are gifts.
    A T-shirt or a watch would be nice too for the kids and a scarf-shawl for the older lady...

    Any gift would be appreciated!
    Oh, and yes many Romanians that live in the US now, whenever they return to visit, they give money and not presents...sometimes that is helpful as there are people who need it, but money is not a gift that lasts...
