We have some guests coming for a visit from Poland. They are long lost realitves. We want to buy some gifts for them to take home as souviners for themselves and other family members that didn't make the trip. Any suggestions? What's hot in Poland right now? Our guests are 60 years old and 15 years old. Other gifts should be for all the family members.

I would go with clothes and iPod , bourbon and you can ask the visitors what the other part of the family in Poland would like :)

Merged: What gifts to bring from us to Poland?

I will be travelling to Poland this spring and the trip will include a visit with realtives as well as a family wedding in Zakopane.

I would like to bring gifts for the relatives with whom we will be visiting and have done a bit of searching on this site for what would be appropriate and most appreciated. I work for a luxury cosmetics line (Lancome) and have access to products from that line as well as from others, i.e. Estee Lauder, Chanel, and the like.

It is my understanding that these type of products are much more expensive in Poland and therefore are well-received as gifts

I wonder if perfumes from these cosmetic lines would be better gifts than cosmetics or skin care products. I can get any products, but am afraid a jar of expensive skin care product may not be appreciated or appropriate. Or maybe it would, and moreso than eyeshadow or lip gloss. So, I suppose I'd just like a bit of guidance as to what would be the best choice for a gift.

As far as gifts for male relatives, it is my understanding that the younger males with whom we will be visiting love American music, my mother visited them 2 years ago and they mentioned their love for certian bands. I thought some cool t-shirts featuring those bands would be appreciated. Perhaps some sports jerseys as well? NBA or MLB, or NFL?

Any thoughts or opinions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Usually they are.

Depends on a person.

I think perfumes are a better idea.

I think either will be fine.

For men from Zakopane you'd better bring some fasion items they can't (or could not last times) buy in Poland like GAP. I'm sure they know the brand, maybe there is an official shop in Krakow, but it's still not very common brand.
