Public Question Asked by NileGuide about Cairo
A question for the local girls - Advice about gifts
I have lived in many countries especially in Eastern Europe and have noticed that often makeup, perfumes, nice shower gels and deodorants are very expensive. Things that sre so important in a hot country. I need to buy a gift for a girl in Cairo I am to visit ( I am a girl). I would like to take something that is an expense for women in Egypt that they would only buy as a treat. I used to receive nice toiletries when I lived in Bulgaria where these things were so expensive and they meant the world to me. Or is there something else that a Cairo city girl of 25years would like from England?

I think your idea is very good, usually here body treats "good ones" are very expensive. if your friend love to treat herself.. that would be very nice of you to get her these products from England, other wise you can get her any antique that represent England

I am an English woman living here in Cairo and the thing I miss most is lingerie. You can get it from City Stars Mall but it is very expensive, so if you have an idea about her size then I would think that would be a wonderful gift.

girls in cairo like clothes a lot , so you can buy a ress for her , or a t- shirt and pants ( whatever easier for you ) she will appreciate it , perfumes and other stuff like that is common everywhere

wt u have said is totally right, i think she would like a perfume( bur berry ) or a body spray(victoria secret) look wt we most like is those may be a sunglasses u can buy her a standard shape like ray-ban or a guess bag or coach all those things are needed and v. expensive in Egypt so we prefer them from USA or Europe hope tht i've helped & u 'll enjoy ur stay in Egypt

Hi - this was a long time ago and I hope you found something that your friend really loved. I know my Egyptian family likes perfumes (they like ones made in Europe) and they like clothes not made in China :-) As an Aussie here in Cairo I find the hardest thing to get is good moisturisers etc. at reasonable prices. Pretty much everything is available here, the problem is the cost for the average person. Another possibility may have been to take her to a good day spa (in the 5-star hotels like Four Seasons) which are also out of reach for many ordinary Egyptians but reasonable by western standards.
all the best
