I was recently interviewed for an article on Cloud 9 Living about gift giving traditions in Morocco.  You can check out my responses here but they also sent over a fun infographic. Interesting isn’t it??

This interactive gift giving map, brought to you by Cloud 9 Living, is meant for world travelers, study abroad students, those living in or visiting a foreign country; and anyone with curiosity about cultures, traditions and etiquette standards around the world.

The map specifically covers gift giving traditions in China, India, Japan, Brazil, Turkey, Zimbabwe, Italy, Sweden, Bolivia, Tibet, Morocco, Russia, Samoa, Israel and the English Commonwealth. With holidays ranging from Diwali to Christmas, and traditions from gifting yogurt to pulling on earlobes; everyone will learn something new.

    It's the season for gift guides and it's got me thinking about the things my boys brought to Morocco and what we left behind. Space was (and is!) a big deal, so technology has helped us in many ways. But there are some toys they've really loved having. So, I thought why not share the…
