What to buy in Pakistan?

Dp is off to Pakistan on business next week - is there anything I should ask him to buy whilst he's over there?
I think they do great carpets but am thinking of something less expensive & easier to carry - any ideas?

Pashminas. I know theyre not as fashionable now but I can't live without mine. We have an office in Mumbai and every time somebody comes over I get them to bring me new ones - just got a beautiful dusky pink hand emroidered one for £30. Make sure he gets the best quality he can find, nothing more than 10% silk.

Something I bought DD (age then 18 months) in the local Sari shop -- was a little embroidered (beads and sequins and things) skirt-suit. It was £12 and friends assure me I should have paid less, so what do they cost in their countries of origin? It's stunning and people always comment and ask where I got it. I imagine you could buy some similarly beautiful embroidered and beautiful fabric trouser- and skirt-suits for girl children in Pakistan for almost nothing.
