We are visiting a family in Slovenia that we don’t know very well. We would like to bring gifts from the USA and will not be checking our bags...any suggestions.
Where are you from in the US? That might be helpful in offering recommendations.
Not meaning to hurt Lia's feelings, but I wouldn't expect that a "large format" picture book of Ohio would be of huge interest to a family in Slovenia. How interested would you be in a picture book of Slovenia? Take the family out to dinner, buy them some wine and chocolates, buy tickets for a local sports event or concert for the youngest family members ...... anything fun and memorable.
Something from the US which is not found in Europe. We buy small ceramic bison made here in SD - they cost $3 each and are small - about 2 in. Of course, there are few bison in OH, but who cares? Another US thing might be a small alligator.
Another one is coffee or chocolate.
What about a membership in the Pro Football Hall of Fame? He-he - just kidding.
A small fridge magnet depicting Orville and Wilbur or showing state outline w flag, bird, etc?
Thanks for all the suggestions. We took some candy from a local Ohio candy shop, picked up a bottle of wine and will send some more personal thank you gifts when we get home.
