Don't ever gift #alcohol 😁 #afghans #Afghanistan

A post shared by Lingofacts (@lingofacts) on

Afghans do not expect gifts, but they are very much appreciated. Sweets such as chocolate are ideal, particularly when ornately wrapped. Any food item makes a good gift also. First rule of gift giving is to never give alcohol. However, if you know from first hand experience that the receiver drinks you may do so but covertly to avoid shame.
