I do not know what to buy for my parent in Seoul.
My last day of strolling in Seoul....I found this Ajussi selling this...pillow.
So I end up carry all the way from Seoul back to Malaysia....2 of this pillows.
This Korean pillows filled with buckwheat husks.
I think this will be totally unique gift for my parent.
I heard buckwheat is widely used by Korean in ancient time and even now as a therapeutic grain.
Therapeutic Benefits -
The unique shape of the buckwheat hull allows air circulation and helps maintain your normal body temperature. Also, these pillows provide the optimal alignment for your neck which eases the pressure on your spine, while conventional pillow fills cause neck and shoulder pains in the morning.
Sleep Better -
The buckwheat hulls weight-absorbing structure conforms to the contours of your face and head thus reducing the pressure on your body for maximum comfort.
