What should I bring as a gift to the homestay family?

Footprint appreciates your kindness and generosity. Gift giving is appropriate all over Vietnam. Good small gifts that are appropriate include: something special from your country (for example: a pin, calendar, small trinket, small t-shirts, a baseball cap, or a picture book); school supplies (for example: notebooks, pens, calculator); something fun for the kids (for example: a kite, board game, or a soccer ball); or something for the adults (for example: a tea set, tools, picture frame, or a bottle of special wine).

Feel free to ask your Footprint travel consultant any questions regarding what to give, tips, etc. so you can best prepare for your Vietnam tour with us.
