A gift for a Buddhist friend or family member must be selfless, ethical and meaningful. A Buddha statue beautifully fulfils this brief, as it is encouraging Buddhism in its strongest form whilst also carrying a personal message. Nevertheless, what is most important is giving a gift to a Buddhist which is true and distinctively heartfelt.
