    Hi,

    I'd like to ask for some tips from people living in the USA.
    What gifts/souvenirs would you bring to your friends in Europe?
    I'm thinking about things that are unique to the USA and cannot be bought (or it's not easy to get your hands on) in Europe and are also part of the US culture.
    No guns or anything violent.

    The few ideas I could come up with are barbecue sauce, license plates, street signs, Hershey's chocolate, locally made alcohol, maybe some clothing.

    Any ideas are welcome.

    Thanks

    Fun fact, apparantly you can't mail food to the UK. I didn't do any research before I tried to mail a package out, but I grabbed a flat rate box and filled it with all sorts of stuff (including food and liquor) and it never made it.

    No guns? psh its basically all we love.
    lolol

    but some ideas could be..

    A special box of Ghirardelli chocolates - an Italian company that moved to San Francisco and has numerous kinds of chocolates - most are the American sweet chocolate though (fair warning).

    If you can find - a Kachina doll - these dolls were carved by natives here in the USA, mainly around AZ. If you can find one with a real feather that would be amazing as in most areas it's illegal to take feathers of certain birds, even off the ground.

    Most people know NASA's impact here and like their shirts with the general logo - however, their store and site have some better merch and even a pretty sweet book on the moon and other subjects.

    I might be ignorant of the world(idk if Disney land is anywhere else) - but Walt Disney or Disney land merch seems to be a good choice if you're around an area that has it.

    If all else fails - most of our states have a state "bird" or "flower" or flag or something of nature and most souvenir shops can tell you that, if the state flower is a sunflower you can find something sunflower related where you are most likely and it will mean more as its special to the space you were in.

    hope that helps
