7 Cultural Gift Ideas

Do you know someone who enjoys learning about our cultures? Maybe they have an interest in one other culture in particular, or maybe they like to learn about all different types. No matter what the case is, here are seven gift ideas to consider. 

1. A Cultural Subscription Gift Box

There are subscriptions for just about anything nowadays, and other cultures are no exception. Whether you purchase a Japanese snack gift box, a Mexican candy subscription box, or a German chocolate box, the possibilities are endless! Your loved one can get a taste of another country’s candy, snacks, and more! 

2. A Trip to Another Country 

This is undoubtedly a larger purchase, but why not surprise your loved one with a vacation to Italy, the Netherlands, China, India, Greece, France, or just about any country they have an interest in? Another option is to take a cruise that visits multiple countries. This can be a great anniversary gift idea for your significant other, a graduation gift for your child, or a retirement gift for your parents. 

3. A Membership to a Language Learning App

If your loved one has an interest in learning another language, why not gift them with the tools they need to do this? A membership to language learning apps like Rosetta Stone, Duolingo or Babbel can be a great way to learn. Of all of these language learning apps, Rosetta Stone offers the highest number of languages, with a total of 25. These range from Arabic and Tagalog (Filipino) to Spanish and Turkish. 

4. A Gift From a Favorite Country 

Does your loved one have an obsession with one country in particular? If so, do a little research on that country and find out what gifts are ideal from that place. For example, if they love Switzerland, then consider importing chocolate from there (or gifting them chocolate from a Swiss brand, such as Lindt or Nestle). If your loved one is a fan of Germany, consider purchasing them a beer stein (and some German beer). 

5. Cultural Cuisine

Cuisine can be a great way to learn about different cultures. Check out the restaurants that serve Arabic, Chinese, Dominican, English, French, German, Hungarian, Indian, Indonesian, Jamaican, Japanese, Lebanese, Mexican, Middle Eastern, Polish, Portuguese, Thai, and Turkish food — just to name a few. Whether you purchase a gift card or take your loved one for a unique dining experience, this can be a great idea for a present. 

6. A Trip to a Museum 

Museums offer collections of art and other artifacts from other countries, making them an ideal option for anyone who wants to learn more about different cultures in general. 

There are also museums tailored to certain cultures in the United States. For example, if your loved one has an interest in Japan, consider taking a trip to the Noguchi Museum in New York or the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. If they love German culture, consider taking a trip to the German-American Heritage Museum in Washington, DC. Do a little research to find a museum that’s most tailored to your friend’s interests! 

7. Artwork 

Look into paintings or other forms of artwork by famous artists in the country your loved one has an interest in. If they love Italy, for example, you might purchase a print of a painting by Leonardo Da Vinci.

Another option is to purchase artwork with a scene from their favorite country. For example, if they love Paris, you might consider purchasing a painting of the Eiffel Tower. If they love China, you might purchase a painting of the Great Wall of China. 

These are just seven cultural gift ideas. Whether your loved one enjoys one culture in particular or aims to be well-cultured in general, there are a number of great options out there to choose from. Remember that when it comes to giving presents, it’s always the thought that counts!
