Europeans shopping in US

Jump to last reply

There have been several threads inquiring what travelers can purchase in other countries such as Britain, France, Germany, Spain etc.
Thus, I have been wondering what do the Europeans buy when they come to the US.
From my travels around the world, I am noticing that these days one can buy almost everything everywhere. Yet, we all love to buy a small souvenir or some special food item from places we visit.
Hope to get some interesting replies here.

This idea also came to mind as I am getting ready to travel to London to attend a wedding. I have been pondering what this young couple would like from the US. In fact, I cant come up with one thing they would love from the US. It seems everything I see in the stores is made in China so there is nothing really American about it, so I think it is not worthwhile carrying it.
Thus leaning towards giving a cash gift.
Would love hearing any comments on this subject too. Thanks.
