I remember once in Ottawa trying to give a hockey puck to a visiting Italian friend as a gift from Canada. Every puck I found was made in Slovakia (89 cents each). Finally I found one made in Canada for $5. It is not easy finding a Canadian souvenir actually made in Canada.
We brought Canada Flag lapel pins as gifts for our new friends here in China, all made in China. We finally found some art work made and printed in Canada and of course maple syrup to bring as gifts during our stay here.
The best thing about visiting China is bringing home gifts. Everything is made in China! Everything is super cheap!! It can all be found under one roof!!!
The wonderful Mr. Pu took us to the souvenir supermarket yesterday. Seven floors of souvenir stalls and junk items. It was like a Dolarama on steroids. My best find was a little plastic cow key-chain that moo’s and has a little LED light when you push the tiny button. My favourite find was a watch with a wooden strap and mounting.
