Host Family Gift Ideas? Countries: Germany & France

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone!
This summer I am staying with some acquaintances and would like give little something as a gift for their hospitality.

In Germany, it is a middle-aged couple. In France, I will be splitting the time between two families- each with about 6 children whose ages range between preteen to mid twenties.

I have a limited amount of space because i will not be checking any bags; the gifts need to be small.
(preferably something that is unique to the US or even better, from the Philadelphia or South Jersey area.)

I would greatly appreciate the advice, thanks!
