Another Host Family Gift question (Spain)

Jump to last reply

My 20 year old daughter is leaving in four days for a four-week study abroad program in Madrid. Seeking ideas for some gifts for the host family. While my daughter was assigned to this host family by her university, unfortunately, we haven't been given any other details about them. Having done a search on the forums for host family gifts, I've read a lot of suggestions regarding books, crafts, etc. I think I would prefer to go with giving food gifts.

We're in an area where we don't have a Whole Foods or a Williams Sonoma or Trader Joe's. We do have a Fresh Market, a Schuck's, and a huge WalMart. ;-)

I've gathered a list of possible gifts and would like to hear your feedback if it's a nay or a yea! :-)

Maple syrup
What about adding some pancake mix from the Fresh Market?

Nicer American-made chocolates. Any suggestions? I've bought several varieties of Vosges Haut Chocolates from the Fresh Market, and the store does have several other unique types of artisan chocolates. If you have other suggestions, I can try to order some online but will have to have it shipped overnight or 2-days - what with this heat and all.

Bourbon balls or Bourbon Chocolate Candy (we're 15 minutes from Kentucky)

I bought some jars of organic Apricot and Peach conserve from a recent trip to San Francisco and was wondering if this can be added to the gift list? http://www.froghollow.com/collections/spreadable-fruit/products/apricot-conserve

How about a small bottle of Maker's Mark? I'm not a bourbon connoisseur and am playing safe with this brand.

My daughter is 20 y/o. Will she be breaking any law by "transporting" liquor?

Would love to hear your comments and other suggestions.

Thanks!
