I'm travelling around India with a friend later this year and while we're out there it's his birthday.

Now i know this is a really random question but i was wondering if anybody could recommend something quintessecentially Indian to buy for him.

Wait until you're out there and find soemthing i hear you cry. Well fair enough but i want to buy him something that he can use, not some tourist clap trap that i will inevitably end up buying and will sit on a shelf of his gathering dust for eons (he can't bin it, it will be a present after all and that's just rude!!)

I realise that you don't know the guy, i do but im looking for ideas of good things to buy so i can go armed with info and stuff to look for (not the usual tourist rubbish, we both have enough of that!) Any help is appreciated.

Whats your budget?

1. tantra T-shirts(they make t-shirts with witty messages and cartoons about India)
2. leather office bag(similar quality is much cheaper in India)
3. Titan wrist watch - starts from below Rs1000 and lasts forever
4. Bata chappals(sandals)
5. khadi(or any other kind of handloom) shirt/kurta
