Gifts for poor families (and a cook) HELP?

Jump to last reply

I will be staying with a number of Berber and Nomad families. I would like to bring appropriate gifts. I was told to bring balls and so forth for the children, which I have bought, but these people are so poor. What can I bring that is small for packing, will not offend their sense of pride, yet be something of value to their family? Most live in areas that get very cold in the Winter.

Also a cook has been very kind to me and very helpful with my itinerary. I would like to bring him something -- spices or something that he wouldn't get in Fes. Any thoughts? All I've thought of so far is Mexican spices? (I thought of CA honey, but that's a liquid and a live food item for traveling purposes.)

Leaving in 6 days...

thanks!

TF
