My dad is going to Germany soonish and he asked me if I would like any gifts brought back. What are some coolish presents that I should ask for? Was going to go with the usual stuff: German sausage, German Chocolate, etc. But I figured that would be plain.

Bavarian sweet mustard (bayerischer süßer Senf) is pretty good, if you like tasty (non-spicy) mustard. He can probably buy it in the airport on the way back if he forgets, too.

See if he can get you any current German films there, cheaper than getting them off amazon.

I assume you mean a Stein? Not as funny a recommendation that way, though.

If you like sweets, get some Brocken. They're a bit like Werther's Originals but with an absolutely gorgeous chewy/liquid centre. Some of the most delicious sweets I've ever had in my entire life! :sogood: :sogood: :sogood:

Jaeger sauce to go with the German sausage .You get it in packets from either Lidl or Aldi over there, sadly the instructions are all in German and I"m not fluent.

You would certainly think so, but we can only hope. Personally, as much as he loves his English heritage, I believe he owes it to Germany. He went to German schools and has played for German clubs under German coaches. It wouldn't be fair for England to reap the benefits of the finished article after all that simply because his dad is English and served in the army.

I second the comment about brocken. They're absolutely heavenly, providing you like toffee flavour of course.

My dad would probably get VERY strange looks, and isn't it banned in Germany? IIRC?

I was thinking along the lines of decent translation book or something by a classic German Author.

I'll need a picture, my dad will probably have absoloutely no idea what he's looking for and will be thinking i've accidently spelled broken wrong.

I can't find an image of them unfortunately. They're in big bags (like the big bags of sweets here), found in supermarkets etc., with 'Brocken' written on the packet. Just ask your dad to have a look in some supermarkets or other large shops that might sell sweets, and emphasise that it's 'Brocken' and not 'broken'. Ask him to ask an employee to help, if he can't find them. They're seriously, seriously worth the trouble! Just so incredibly more-ish and delicious. I love the texture inside as well.
