Christmas Gift Ideas for Poles Abroad

It is a funny thing, when I was younger and living still back in Poland I was never attracted to Polish folk patterns, amber or traditional foods but the longer I live abroad the more I’m fond of all those things. I own already a couple of pieces from Bolewsławiec, all bought in Cepelia when I was visiting Warsaw but then I spotted them also here in Brighton, in the TK Maxx store. If I had a dog I would definitely want to try out the anti-flea properties of the amber collars. My cupboards are always well stocked with Polish groceries but I haven’t tasted Nalewka Babuni in a long while so this is something I will be getting this Christmas. I’m also very tempted to buy the rolling pin with Łowicz patterns and the Unitra headphones!
