Adorable Andorra: What Do You Do About A Problem Like An Andorran Gift?

Lovely Andorra!

Andorra: I'm sure it's a lovely place. I'm sure, but I can't honestly claim to actually know for sure, since I've never visited. I couldn't pick it out on a map of Andorra! And when I really come to think it over, I can't truly claim to know the first damn thing about the place. Most of what I come up with is basically guesses. It's in Europe, right? I'm pretty sure it's in Europe, though I'm not one hundred per cent that it's actually a part of the European Community. Maybe one of those Lichtenstein type deals? And I think it has mountains, maybe? (And maybe skiing, too? Possibly?) And weird royalty and political deals... oh, okay, my random off the top of my head intel about the nation-state of Andorra is close to nil. Pretty close.

But you have a colleague who just loves Andorra, right? Who goes on about it all the time? Or maybe a friend who's holidayed there, and had just the best time of her life ever? Or a family member, a club-mate, the list goes on... Well, doesn't that just conveniently make things a whole heck of a lot easier when present-buying time rolls around! What it means is that you get to cheat: to head immediately for the pile of items in any shop or online outlet bearing the banner 'ANDORRA-THEMED GIFTS HERE', do not pass go, collect your two hundred dollars! (Okay, maybe not so much that last.)

Except... what constitutes an Andorran-themed gift? That's the hard part. Maybe a poster or calendar highlighting the beautiful Andorran scenery or environment, because, checking it out, it certainly does appear to be a helluva beautiful place. Or a coffee-table type book with lots of pictures, with the same end in view?

Of course the 'novelty type item' option is always, well, an option. I mean the T-shirt, earring, paperweight or mug etc., that only exists purely to have an Andorran flag or logo plastered all over it. Really just to signify that its user adores everything Andorran, which in this case I guess is fine and justification enough!

How about Andorran writers leading to Andorran books? Maybe some non-fiction, sociological or historical, or possibly a map book? (Maybe an antique or vintage map, because that's always nice and pretty framed up on the wall.) Or perhaps some traditional Andorran folk music, via CDs or maybe downloads? (Or a holiday booking at one of the famous Andorra skiing resorts. If you want to go crazy.)

Go crazy! You can do it: if you know it's Andorran, you know it'll be a hit!
