This may seem strange to Westerners, but even after 40 years, Thai women are very fond of receiving big soft toys as a present. In the first place in popularity are teddy bears, which can be of different colors. Even if your Thai girl already has 2 or 3 teddy bears, she will be sincerely glad to get another one and add it to her collection. As a rule, Thai women are not very tall, but they adore huge bears – from 1 meter and more. Therefore, a large teddy bear is a universal gift for all Thai women from 3 to 60 years old. Plush elephants, tigers, monkeys, rabbits and other animals, including unicorns, can also be given as gifts. Also, residents of Thailand have a real love for bright stuffed pillows. Pillows in the form of a heart with symbolic words on the surface are especially popular.

3. Chocolate and sweets
For a long time, the inhabitants of Thailand did not share the Europeans’ love for chocolate and products from it. But in the 21st century, Thais joined the fans of chocolate and every year the amount of chocolate that is consumed in the country is constantly growing. In Thailand, there are still no in-house producers of high-quality chocolate, so the brands that are known all over the world are most popular here: Raffaello, Tobleron, Ferrero Rocher, etc. As a sweet gift, you can give pure chocolate and chocolate sweets in a beautiful package. Classic milk chocolate is usually too sweet for the people of Thailand, so it’s better to give dark chocolate or chocolate sweets from various varieties of chocolates with nut or other filling – from 390 baht with delivery in our store.
A feature of Thai culture is the constant pursuit of respect from other people. Therefore, a Thai woman will be glad when, along with a bright bouquet of flowers, she receives a beautiful package of chocolates and can treat them to her colleagues. It may seem funny to you, but in this way not only she, but to a greater extent it is you who will receive respect from her friends and colleagues. This may not be important to you, but your girlfriend will be proud of you. Indeed, the manifestation of generosity is one of the fundamental principles of Thai culture and relations between people. In the same category of edible gifts, you can add other sweets that your girlfriend or Thai wife prefers: fresh or dried fruits, favorite snacks, etc.
4. Gold jewelry
The seriousness of your intentions regarding a Thai girl is most easily demonstrated by purchasing gold items. And it doesn’t have to be a ring at all. Any Thai woman will be happy if you buy her a bracelet, earrings or a chain with a pendant. Unlike flowers, soft toys and chocolate, which you can order with delivery, it is better to entrust the choice of a gift from gold directly to your Thai girlfriend. Then you will be sure that the gift will be 100% successful. However, you can always give an expensive gift in the form of massive bracelets. Indeed, yellow Thai gold is of a very high standard and it can be resold with almost no loss in price.
Thai women prefer Thai gold jewelry, which contains the maximum amount of precious metal and a minimum of impurities. The cost of 1 gram of gold in Thailand may seem very attractive to you, but you should remember that your Thai wife or girl will prefer to choose a thick gold bracelet or a massive chain, the cost of which can be high even by Western standards. Therefore, the choice of gold as a gift is appropriate in cases where you are confident in your feelings and look forward to a long-term relationship. It is for this reason that gold products are often presented at the time of the engagement or before the wedding. The cheapest gold ring costs in Thailand from 3000 THB. The cost of gold bracelets is from 15,000 THB.
5. Money and your concern
Money is a good present in all countries of the world and Thailand is no exception. Cash gifts will be gladly received by your girlfriend or wife on her birthday, anniversary, and on the occasion of another important event in her life. Do not worry about the fact that a cash gift will be misunderstood by your Thai girlfriend or wife. They will never think that you are buying them. Quite the contrary. Money will be accepted as a gift with great gratitude, because money in Thailand is almost a synonym for the word “care”. And caring in Thailand is the most important sign of love! Therefore, your concern for a Thai girl or wife is a reliable foundation for a long and happy relationship. If in any case you are embarrassed by a gift in the form of cash, you can show your concern in another way. For example, you can pay the rent of your girlfriend’s apartment or pay off the monthly fee for a car bought on credit.
Thus, with some exceptions, Thai girls and Thai wives prefer the same gifts as Western women. If you are at the initial stage of your relationship, it is better to give not too expensive, but a romantic gift: a beautiful bouquet of fresh roses, a large soft toy or a stuffed pillow, sweets or favorite fruits. If your relationship went further, then in addition to a romantic gift, your girlfriend will expect your support. And you can show your concern not only with the help of cash gifts, but also by providing real assistance in solving the life problems of your chosen one. Feel free to ask what worries her and find ways by which you can help and support your Thai woman. And this will be the best gift for her. Good luck!
