Has present buying time rolled right around again? What a headache that can be! Of course, when a colleague, a buddy or a member of your family has a particular interest in something (maybe to the point of being obsessed with it) then that tends to give you at least some kind of hint as to what might qualify as a welcome present on high days and holidays!
Maybe, just maybe, your prospective giftee is a lover of all things Hungarian? For whatever reason – perhaps they have a family heritage, after great-great-grandpappy Josef emigrated in 1872. Perhaps they have a professional interest, and a specialty of that profession or the products they deal in originates in Hungary. Maybe they're obsessed with an obscure teen pop brand who hail all the way from Budapest! Whatever the explanation, it certainly makes trawling through online shopping sites and brick and mortar stores in search of the perfect present a lot less onerous!
So if your friend loves gifts of a Hungarian flavour, then what should you get for them that's guaranteed to please?
Of course, there are a wide variety of different categories of gifts to choose from, even if you know the basic kind of vibe or regional feel you're aiming for.
How about books? If your friend with an affection for Hungary is any level of nerd, and most especially a mathematician, then they will surely appreciate a biography of the famous Hungarian mathematician Paul Erdos, by Paul Hoffman and published by Hyperion. He was certainly an eccentric character!
How about music? If you're looking for Hungarian music for someone whose tastes run that way, then you can choose from classical (e.g. Bartok), folk or recent popular genres like dance music or alternative rock, amongst others.
Maybe you're thinking that some traditionally gourmet Hungarian foodstuffs might do the trick for your pal? And that could well be the case, but what would qualify? Perhaps the ingredients for a traditional Hungarian goulash? (Or still better, get them to cook you one when you've bought them a rather more impressive present!)
