#11 Thai silk gifts

Silk jewelry bag

Silk is one of the famous export products from Thailand. Most silk farms and weaving companies are located in the north of Thailand.

#19 Elephant pants

Elephant pants

Honestly, I can’t even believe I am even sharing the elephant pants as one of the Thailand gifts. It’s basically one of the most cliche outfits for backpackers who love Thailand. The classic, “I went to Thailand and it was a life-changing experience” pants (check the meme).

But let’s face it.

The pants are comfortable, lightweight, thin, dry fast and they cover your knees so you can visit temples without passing out from the heat. Which explains why they are so popular and iconic.
