I am trying to buy my friend that lives and is from England a Christmas present from the US...something good. Any recommendations on gifts that we may have in the US but not in England that I can send? I would be so grateful!
Well I'm an Englishman living in the US....
A baseball shirt - you can get them in the UK but when I lived there, you really didn't go out to buy one - now I live here I love them!
Hmmmm,,,with the internet and all that, and the fact that England really isn't that different than the US, it's hard to think of anything really unique!
How about an 'Indian' quilt, or clothing - cowboy hat etc....again you can get them in the UK but probably very expensive....
Some beef jerky - seriously - I had one friend from Wales that brought a whole lot of the stuff!
A turducken - I'm sure you can't get one of those in the UK - hard to ship food overseas though....
SimeyC, great idea's! You see my issue it's hard to find something that he can't get but these are some really good ideas. I loved the beef jerky one Thanks!
Native american stuff should be a real winner! Just avoid electronics as they wont work here! Dvd's included as they are usually region specific. Sadly many shows here in the UK are about a year behind the US (the ones from the US) and would be a popular gift if it were not for those darn region codes!
kristenblog, thank you, I am going to look for some native american stuff...what about books are they behind in books or is it just shows? Thanks again!
I expect books are not so far behind, however there are american authors that do not get sold here at all! I can't find some of my favorite authors in the shops here and have to go to sources like ebay to find em
You can get Beef Jerky in all supermarkets now.... noticed that recently.
Perhaps you can find something at a handicraft store. Do Americans have their own handicrafts? You can get inexpensive Statues, Sculptures or artfacts - it may be in your local store having been obtained from South America, India, Africa, etc.
If your friend likes sweet stuff, there are confectionery brands available in the US but not UK, and vice versa.
Books are usually available at the same time, I think. You have to watch out with books, because titles often get changed as they cross the Atlantic.
I have received various gadgets in the past that are not available, or not so common here in the UK.
That is true, we do not get Hersheys! Maybe you could get them some Hersheys.
What kind of age group are they? Whenever I am in America I
stock up on polo shirts from 'American Eagle' we dont have that brand in the UK....
The problem with gadgets is that you have to watch the currents.... we have a stronger electric here so for some electronics it is not only a plug converter needed but also a transformer.....
Thank you, I was thinking peanut m&m's I couldn't find them over in the UK however, I wanted to give a bigger gift
