If you are a foreigner that has or wants to have a Thai girlfriend or wife, you might wonder what types of gifts they like to get from their boyfriend, husband or “kik”. Asian women from different countries like different things. Thai women are not picky but you can find a special and unique gift that is especially appropriate for Thai women.
If you have met your Thai girlfriend online, there are many online stores that ship to Thailand. In addition, the United States Postal Service, UPS and FedEx also offer very reliable shipments to addresses all over Thailand. Addresses can be filled out either in native Thai or using the English translated form of Thai. This second option is probably more preferable to most people that cannot write in Thai.
Another great gift to get your Thai girlfriend is a large stuffed animal such as a bear, monkey or what ever cute animal you can find. You’ll find stores entirely devoted to selling stuffed animals. The cuter the animal, the better. Thai girls are also crazy about stuffed heart pillows. Don’t ask me why, they just are. Go out and spend 200 Baht on a big red heart pillow and you’ll get a big hug and ohm (Thai kiss) from your beautiful Thai lady.
Alternatively, if you live in Thailand or you are planning to visit your Thai girlfriend in her home country, your options are almost limitless. You cannot walk down the street without bumping into small shops and stores that sell all kinds of great gifts for your special girl.
So what exactly do Thai girls like to get? Honestly, they really aren’t that picky. I’d avoid getting them clothes or lingerie as Thai ladies are very picky about what they wear and you will probably pick out something they really don’t care for. But Thai girls are absolutely crazy for accessories. And the more cute the accessory, the better! FInd out what your Thai girlfriends favorite color is and go out and buy hair clips, hair ribbons, watches, necklaces or bracelets. Thai women love this stuff and it doesn’t have to be expensive gold. Most Thai women wear loads of fake costume jewelry. This is the fashion “norm” in the Land of Smiles.
For the most part, Thai women will like almost anything you get them no matter how cheap or expensive. They just want to know that you care about them so a token of appreciation every once in a while can go a long way!
