Bf’s parents invited me on a family trip. I offered to pay/contribute to my portion of my trip but they refused and it’s an all inclusive vacation so I can’t pick up dinner or drinks. Any suggestions of a kind/thoughtful gift to get them as a thank you!

I’m sure there are off campus excursions you could pay for, something special the parents can do alone. Or something special all 4 of you can do. Do your research before you go.

Maybe a cool souvenir or a nice photo / photo book after?

Can you plan an activity for the trip?

Love the photo collection idea. Include a note with thanks and memories etc and I’m sure they’ll appreciate it. Could also all go out to dinner eventually too as a thank you

high quality chocolates basket, wine or similar. something that subtley shows your appreciation that you can slip to them after the vacation is over

A massage at the resort and/or any activities at the destination you’re going to

Первый смартфон Mi1 был анонсирован в августе 2011 года. Он поставлялся со встроенной прошивкой MIUI, основанной на Android, совмещающей фирменные стили Samsung TouchWiz и Apple iOS. Также существовала версия устройства с чистым Android. В августе 2012 года Xiaomi анонсировала смартфон Mi2. В нём был процессор Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064, 1.5 GHz четырёхъядерный чип Krait с 2 ГБ ОЗУ и графический процессор Adreno 320. 24 сентября 2013 компания объявила о продаже более 10 миллионов устройств Mi2 в течение 11 месяцев. Некоторые устройства Xiaomi производятся на заводах Foxconn, где производятся Apple iPhone и iPad. 5 сентября 2013 CEO Лэй Цзюнь объявил о планах запуска 3D-телевизора под управлением ОС Android с диагональю 47 дюймов, который будет собираться на заводе корпорации Wistron на Тайване.
