How Do You Solve A Problem Like Getting An Armenian Present For Someone?
Presents That Are All About Armenia

Did I just sum up my whole thesis right there in the title? I believe I did! Go me!
Well, it's a legitimate question. (If that's the problem you're currently experiencing, anyhow. If you're not, then, uh, why are you here? No, stay here! I have things to talk to you about, relating to Armenia!)
So say you had to buy a present that was related in some way to all things Armenian, clear and obvious or mildly obscure, as you wish, and you had, oh, I'll give you eighteen minutes to think about it. (I said, quite randomly.) You know, this is harder than you would at first assume. Armenia, it's in Europe, right? (Oh God, I quite clearly know less than nothing about Armenia! Are you feeling it too?) Eastern Europe? Are we going with Eastern Europe? Oh, Eurasia, you say? Oops! My bad! (And if I'm honest I did at first think it was one of those old countries that just disappeared a few decades back when boundary lines were redrawn with all the old hassle and hoo-hah of the Iron Curtain. (Yes, that is how I choose to characterise political mayhem and the rise and fall of regimes. Deal with it.)
But is your knowledge and experience regarding the country really totally negligible? If that's really the case, then any present-buying creativity is probably out of the question. Go for the old reliable favourites! You know a travel-guide will more than likely be acceptable (or maybe a little borderline – boring! Predictable!) Or if not a travel guide – then how about a map. No, I'm not talking about a regular current map usable for getting from Point A to Destination B. I'm with the program, in the twenty-first century, and I have heard of GPS! I mean a beautiful old vintage map, an artwork that someone can frame and hang up on their wall, obviously!
