Let me share something extraordinary about Korea, at birth a child is automatically a year old, there are different explanations for this, but what I’m used to is that they claim the child has spent nine months in their mother’s stomach, almost a year, so on child’s birth they are a year old. Considering that, I hope you’ll agree with your Korean friend’s age mate when they say they are your senior.
Just like you, I have friends of different nationalities, and it’s so awesome; maybe you are like me who deliberately did this; the problem most people like us often encounter is deciding on what to get for our friends from different nationalities and cultures in your case, don’t worry, your dear Korean friend whether they are close to you or not would be getting something from you on that particular day, these are some awesome American gifts for Korean friends that they should love.

Awesome American Gifts for Korean Friends
1. American Scented Candles
What I like about scented candles is the relaxing feel they dish out, especially aromatherapy candles. I feel everyone dear to us should enjoy the fabulous scent these candles dish out.
For your Korean friend, some lovely scented candles would be perfect; they’ll fit the bill of an “American Gift” if they are USA-themed, say the flag on its body.
2. The Blue Zones American Kitchen – Hardcover
Introduce them to the numerous dishes and recipes America offers; there’s quite a whooping amount of these dishes. If your Korean friend loves exploring and trying things in the kitchen, this book is perfect for them.
3. American Wine or Beer
Nothing would be more American than a bottle of The State’s Beer or Wine, a bottle or two would do for the wine, while a crate of beer is ideal. You folks can sit and discuss over some, or if you ship it to them in Korea, they’ll love it too.
4. American-made Beauty Products
Some excellent made American beauty product often causes it to my list when picking gifts to send to my friends overseas, but I usually have a half-mind when making this suggestion;. At the same time, they may come to enjoy this, it may leave their skin looking fabulous, and that would demand that they keep using it since they are overseas and probably have no access to it; it could have a side effect if you decide to get them to be ready to ship extras if need be.
5. Dried Fruits and Nuts
If you are visiting them in Korea, then grab some excellent dry fruits and nuts; while they’ll have access to this already, they’ll still fancy the idea of trying out something from the US.
6. Spa Gifts
Some relaxation gifts would do, too and some nice Spa products fit that bill perfectly.
7. Hot Sauce
American hot Sauce is pretty famous and a true American gift. Again, if your friends over there enjoy trying things in the kitchen, don’t forget to throw in some nice hot sauce when you visit.
8. Docking Station
While this is like every other docking station or table organizer, it plays the role of an American gift with the bright American flag crested on it; with this your dear Korean friend would effectively keep things arranged on their table.
9. Flavourful Beef Jerky
Edible foods are great gift ideas to get your friends.
10. American Coffee
While I agree that Korea has coffee, this post is about gifts unique to America, and the American classic fits this bill. Even if this coffee is available in Korea, it might be scarce, so grab some for your friend.
11. American-made Home Decor Items
Some lovely American-made decorations are gift suggestions you should consider getting your friend. Help them add some American beauty to their environment.
12. Wine Country Gift Baskets
A gift basket remains the best Plan B; if you’ve read this far, you should consider grabbing a lovely gift basket for your dear friend.
If it comes to this and you can tell that your friend needs it, please go for this. Give only what you can afford to lose.
14. Souvenirs From Places You Visit in Korea
If you’ll be visiting Korea in person, then collect the souvenirs from each tourist stop and present them to your friends; they’ll love it too, especially if they haven’t seen these places.
