Buying Gifts for the In-Country Staff

It's that time of year. The time when stores are having their Once-A-Year-Only-MEGA-SALE. And dammit, I'm going to milk it for all I can and buy all the gifts that I need for my trip to meet my bundle of joy. So I made a list of what to buy. Here goes:

Whiskey for the men.
Perfume for the women.
Sport watches for men.

Coin purses for women.

Okay, I had problems with this one. There just aren't any great ones out there.

And then I came across some unique but gorgeous mink or beaver or whatever coin purses. I figured the fur part would add a nice glamour touch to the gift.
They feel soft and luxurious.

And then I opened it.



And then I closed it and put it back on the display table.

Scarves, I thought. Yes, scarves will be great gifts and they take up less room in the luggage.

Dear God!!! Okay, even though you put them back I do have to say that in Kazakhstan anyway they would love those coin purses because they seem to dress to the nines out there in the winter in fur fur and more fur.... maybe you could buy one without that color lining?
