Go back to a time in your mind where you found the perfect item to bring back home with you from your travels.
Perhaps it was the bottle of schnapps that you left behind due to airport security, or the beautiful shoes you found in the market that wouldn’t fit in your luggage. Can you recall a moment like this?

Here’s just a little inspiration to get you thinking about creating a grab and order right before the holidays:
1 - Wines You Can Only Buy in Country
There is no denying that we have all had our fair share of wanting hard to get wine. Some regions across the globe only produce and sell locally; these wines will certainly need to be purchased using a peer-to-peer delivery service like Grabr. Wines from Italy and France are quite popular, though there are a variety of brands that are hard to get depending on where you are located. Ice wine is most commonly sold in Canada and is much more affordable than buying it out of country. South African wine from the Stellenbosch region is very unique and rare to find elsewhere.
2 - Wools and Fabrics
There are certain local shops across the globe that only offer particular fabrics or wools within the area. Whether it’s because you’ve done the research online to find out where it was sold, or you found out on your own adventures, there are many places across the globe that specialize in fabrics that are very difficult to replicate. Peru has always been a popular destination for purchasing alpaca wool. It’s a great holiday gift and it is one of the warmest and thinnest wools in the world. Local shops in Bulgaria offer quite a unique array of wool shawls, market places in Nepal offer yak wool from the Himalayan mountains, there is the raw fabric of Basque Country in France, what else can you add to the list?
3 - Toys
No matter how old you are, there are some toys you will never forget. Whether it’s for you or the children you actually have, toys are different across the world. Common brands such as Lego, Barbie and Hotwheels are universal, but specific types of pieces, cars and Barbie’s are only countrywide. You might not have needed to visit the country to know, but doing some research for these hard to find toys is well worth your time now that Grabr offers an opportunity to order goods from abroad.
4 - Items from Boutique Shops
This is when Grabr’s crowd sourced travel and crowd shipping really comes in handy. Most boutiques from across the globe carry one of kind pieces and many of them handmade. The local shops in Paris offer vintage and rare pieces of collections from some of the world’s most famous brands including Hermes, Merci, and Rivieras. Finding the perfect gift just got easier.
5 - Food and Snacks
Depending on how often you travel, you may find it common that you come home missing foods you’ve tried on your travels. Or the opposite effect, you’re away or living abroad and miss the foods from home. Once you reveal your palate to other tastes and textures from around the world, it is normal to develop more temptation and desire for certain foods. A great example is from a Canadian perspective of having withdrawals from favourites such as Cadbury chocolate, Kraft peanut butter or Tim Horton’s coffee. International and local food is an option for stocking stuffers or thank you gifts. They are easy to items to put in hand luggage and quite often easy to find (if you’re in the actual country). It’s as easy as making your order with Grabr, having a traveler pack it in their carry on and receiving it the next day.
6 - Sculptures, Carvings, Paintings
One of the most exciting things to do as a traveller in a new country or city is explore the art and fashion scenes from across the world. Sculptures, carvings and paintings are always one of a kind. You can find local shops in Alaska selling carvings of bone marrow or boots out of sealskin. You can find local shops in Costa Rica carving jewellery and souvenirs from teak wood. There are so many beautiful pieces around the world; Grabr is a great way to claim grabs.
7 - Collectibles
If you’re not a valuables collector, you’re often a sport collector or a travel collector. There are so many travellers who come together and share their secrets about what they bring home and what collectible goods they enjoy. For many it's backpackers patches (which are surprisingly hard to find in every country you visit), for others it can be spoons, receipts, ticket stubs, maps, bracelets, etc. If you’re a valuables collector it might be more common to collect action comics, vintage signs, coins or stamps.
8 - Things you Forgot
Expat’s might feel for this point more than others, but there’s always something you forget behind whether you’re on vacation or living abroad. Though intentional, it’s not easy to always remember to pack everything, it’s also not easy to fit is all in with the luggage allowances now offered on airplanes. If you needed your makeup and hair straightener for the next day, Grabr makes it possible by crowd-shipping your goods from abroad by those who love adventure travel through a crowd-shipping app.
9 - Unique Travel Accessories
There are some pretty cool travel gadgets in the marketplace today that are sold across the world but at inflated prices. Having a traveller deliver Grabrs to the shopper’s doorstep the next day saves a lot of money in taxes and postage fees.
10 - Handmade/Local Liquors
Handmade and local liquors are all the craze for travellers and shoppers with a love of flavour. Nothing beats the homemade Rakia and slivovitz you’ll find in Central and Eastern Europe. In Germany you can also find delicious schnapps and more popularly the Williams pear schnapps.
