I could definitely use the great, collective imagination of the BB for this one!
I work with people from many different countries. On my last business trip, one of my colleagues in Israel brought me a few gifts from her country. She asked me ahead of time what I wanted (since I'd been there before) and I requested za'atar spice and halva.
We have another trip coming up, so I thought I should return the favor and bring some US gifts for her. She hasn't spent much time here & couldn't think of any ideas of what she wanted, so I'm supposed to surprise her.
So...I need your help coming up with some ideas! For some reason my mind is drawing a blank of what is unique to the US. The biggest caveat is that it must be something I can take onto carryone luggage for my flight to Miami. She does have 2 kids (around 10 and 7, I think) so something for them might be fun.
