I have a female friend who is leaving for a teaching job in Qatar in January. What would be a useful portable gift to give her to take with her?

Oh , a hair dryer or hair curler

there are cheap ones here though... OTC (over the counter) medicines for colds, fever or flu just in case. The weather here is kinda getting colder and a change in the weather, your friend might catch a cold or flue...almost all newcomers here experience it Antibiotics like Penicillin, amoxicillin coz here in Qatar, you need to have a prescription to but antibiotics

Is there a Pork Perfume?

Ditto on the bacon, pork sausage, pork chops, ham,....can you tell we miss pork! I think getting a care package together: her favorite perfume; shampoo; conditioner; glycerin soaps; set of DVDs of her favorite TV series: they show outdated sit coms and other series here. (IE: Denny just died on Grey's Anatomy!) She may not be able to find HER brands of products and if she doesm she'll have to pay more for them here. Oh, and did I mention she should pack PATIENCE?
