Looking for suggestions of Boston/Massachusetts mementos to bring to a friend. Friend is in England but has visited here over the years. Had planned to do the gurgling cod pitcher, then found out they were first made in England, not here.

Not a memento, but whenever I have visited family in England we have brought them maple
Syrup - they love it and request it every visit!

There's a great tourist trap T-shirt I've seen recently that says "Brexit 1776". While not classy, definitely a Boston thing...

This would be hilarious if my friend wasn’t completely anti-Brexit. Thanks for the laugh!

The Gurgling Cod is still a very Boston/Brahmin/Yankee traditional gift (in some circles people fight over who gets to gift it at a wedding) despite its origin.

Maple sugar candy is a little easier to transport than syrup. Perhaps a book of historic stories or photographs? A beautiful image of the skyline, harbor, Boston Light, Fenway, etc. would represent the city nicely. Little stuffed animal lobsters seem to be popular despite being more of a Maine thing.

The gurgling cod is a Boston / New England twist on the English original. I think they make a great gift for the right people. 🤷‍♀️

What do I do now? Stay with GT or join EY? Is it okay to ditch in just few weeks

have heard GT has less hour goals & better WLB. I am pretty sure that EY might not offer that. Is the 20% raise worth it? Will I be risking too many things making the move.
Any scope of permanent WFH in either of the 2 firms (India office) since that will help me decide
