Small things from Thailand to take home. For the places to buy see Shopping in Bangkok.

Fish Mobile

Chinese-Thai custom is hanging a fish mobile over the new-borns crib for good luck. They're usually made of palm leaves. The plain ones are just that, a natural light brown. They also come in wildly painted patterns, where red with gold seems to be a favourite combination. I have made quite a few friends happy with this gift for their new-born. Of course you can also just buy it for yourself, it is a great decoration item too.
