1. ANYTHING RELATED TO COFFEE
Back to coffee! But seriously coffee beans, drip coffee, the delicious instant coffee packets… Just know you can’t ship coffee beans!
2. CLOTHES THAT ARE TAILOR MADE
Vietnam is home to a ton of talented tailors especially in Hoi An! I’ve written about getting clothes tailored here. I was definitely spoiled while living there and had a ton of things custom-made and/or tailored. I already know when I go back, I’m going to have some more things made like suits and silk dresses! If you’re in HCMC, go to TuyetLan Orchids Tailor, and if you’re in Hoi An, go to Izi!
3. ANY LOCAL BOUTIQUES AND BRANDS
There are some really cute brands that have sprung up in Vietnam. The ones I love the are Metiseko, Dynasty the Label, and Kilomet 109!
4. ANYTHING VIETNAMESE THEMED
I mean once you get here you’ll see all the cute Vietnam-themed souvenirs in the most random places. My favorite is this Obama bun cha magnet I found in a bookstore in Go Vap! I’ve also picked up some cute illustrated books and postcards and just a lot of cute things I can’t wait to decorate with.
