  • American wishes to buy gifts for Germans

    Hi all,

    My In-Laws (Mother & Father) (Sister & Partner) live in Germany, and I wish to buy them something online so that it can be shipped locally. What's the hot gift this year? Where can I buy it? Anyone able to help?

    Age group?
    I often use the services of certain purveyors of Spiced Nürnberg Cakes, or Marzipan from Lübeck. But I send those things abroad to places where they are not so easily available or of inferior quality. Don't you have any Native American specialties from Washington State? Or what about a huge picture calendar of where you live? Moms appreciate "seeing" how their children, in this case your wife, are harboured, so to speak.


    In rare cases I send Single Malts via an online dealer.
    In any case if there's anything I can help it, shout please.

      Mother and Father in-law are 60-65.

      Sister and Sister in-law are 35-40.

      Something from Washington has been done in the past. I want something local to them so delivery is certain. We can't send alcohol.

      Cakes and marzipan sound divine. Are the cakes alcohol free? What are the web page addresses for these items?

        Try these:
        best Marzipan (unsure what payment they accept)
        "Dresden Stollen" Cakes (Creditcards accepted)
        Nürnberg Lebkuchen Spiced Cakes (VISA and Mastercard accepted)

          go for Lebkuchen
          go for Lebkuchen
          go for Lebkuchen
          go for Lebkuchen

          get some your self too.
          To accompany them with some good glühwein (mulled wine) Pompadour used to do a great tea-bag kind of thing with dried fruit and spices so you could heat just a single cup of wine (have to get that yourself) then put this tea-bag in for 5 minutes.
