student budget local gift ideas?

puretopaz | Dec 13, 201309:14 PM

I just moved to Montreal in September for my grad school,
and am about to go back to Vancouver for Christmas break.
While I am looking forward to enjoy good Asian food, especially Korean food (I am Korean-Canadian) and local apples in Vancouver,
I want to bring back something from Montreal for my family.

I know that there's a recent thread on gift ideas,
but I am on student budget and want to know what would be good, affordable food gifts unique to Montreal, or hard to get in Vancouver?

I have been discovering much wider and more available selection of cheese, bread/ pastry (for much cheaper price), yogurt, preserves, etc here, but don't know about practicality (flight?)

I mean I guess I could always buy fairmount bagel with carry-on (my family brought back a dozen when they came here to help me move),
but anything more fun, creative, would be much appreciated!

Thank you so much in advance
