Turkey survival gift pack: What might a Canadian miss in Turkey?

Hello!

I hope I'm posting this in the right place! My brother is going to Turkey for 8 months, and I want to get him a "Turkey survival pack" as a gift. I'm trying to think of things that might be hard for him to find in Turkey, that he might miss from home when he's there. Can anyone help me come up with ideas? Anything that someone from Canada might want to bring with them?

Thanks so much for any ideas!

-Anna

Hi Anna, Whats the purpose of his visit? where is he staying ? Whats his age group? a bit more info about him might help to get some specific advice.

If he's a marmite person, then a big jar of marmite.

Re: Turkey survival gift pack: What might a Canadian miss in Turkey?

Hi Anna welcome to the forum ..and what a really nice idea.
He's going o be here through a couple of seasons so pack a hot water bottle ..it gets gold
even on the coastal areas.and a nice flannel shirt
pack him some gravy for his Poutine..you cant get good gravy here. and if he likes smoked meat some vacuum packs might be welcome.
some of your magazines some birthday cards for friends he will make here


as Stuart mentioned you didnt say where he will be staying as some places have everything..and other places dont cater for foreigners
good luck

Canadian whiskey and very loud talkative people when they have had a lot to drink (based on Cuban holidays and what my sister in law who lives in Canada says).

A gas mask seems to be the must-have holiday essential of 2013

Bring snow, plenty of snow.

But you can leave the mosquitoes at home, plenty of them here.
