    I'm travelling to Germany soon on an exchange. She was here last year and brought me and my family many thoughtful (and typically German) gifts. Now it is my turn and I'm completely stuck for ideas. I'm thinking something along the lines of shortbread, Cadbury chocolate and tea bags since they are typically 'British' although I'd like to get her and her family something else, perhaps even something that is hard to get in Germany. Any ideas?

    I'd suggest something like fudge or Brighton Rock. Food is usually good to stick to though. Can't really go wrong with tea either. If you're old enough to buy alcohol (and if you're allowed to take alcohol on the trip) then I'd get some ale too.

    Whereabouts are you going? I did an exchange in Germany two years ago and it was incredible.

    Thank you! I hadn't thought of fudge, that's a brilliant idea.
