Honestly: I ask you. Say you had a friend who was quite notably keen on all things Samoan. What would you get them for a birthday, Christmas, christening party, grraduation or whatever the heck else celebratory event they were undergoing? No, me neither!

Of course, you could always go with y0our first instincts on the subject. In my case I'm not sure that would be at all the best thing to do, though. I feel very strongly that my first instincts would be politically incorrect and socially unsound, somehow! They might even involve grass skirts and, I dunno, dancing and islands and various things that would demonstrate my complete and embarrasing social, geographical and historical ignorance. I don't even want to go there!

So, for serious and for real, what do you do if you want to get a bud a Samoan-flavoured pressie, for whatever event is coming up in their lives? I guess food is never a bad first stop in making this decision? What food would you get a friend to remind them of all things Samoan? Well, to be honest, Amazon isn't coming up with anything for me. Nothing except for aprons namechecking Samoa! You could always get them an apron! Geez, I know nothing of Samoa, if I'm going to be frank. I couldn't find Samoa on a Samoa map!

What about a historical account of Samoa from the books section of your local bookstore. (That's assuming that they stock one, of course.) There seem to be a fair number of travel books, sociological accounts and histories available!

Or maybe your friend is a sports fan? That simplifies things immensely if so: you can hit two birds with one stone, and the names of those birds are a) rugby and b) Samoa! Okay, the actual product might be a little harder to locate, but coming at the subject from two different angles has to simplify it a bit!

Anyway, you can do it! How about holidays to Samoa, if you're feeling super-generous or you just won the Euromillions lotto? Go get something Samoan for your Samoa-loving pal!
