What are some typical American items to send to my friend in France that can't be found there?

I will be sending him a package of American items and he will be sending me French things, but i don’t quite know what to put into it. Help? What are some things we have in America that can rarely or never be found in France?

One Response to What are some typical American items to send to my friend in France that can't be found there?

  • WISE OWL says:

    A difficult one, as you find most ordinary things on both side of the Atlantic. It is not as if France was an under developped country. Obviously you could send patriotic things like a small flag or T shirt with an American theme. There is some lovely and unexpensive jewellery, leather items and small pottery items made by native American Indian tribes. Also Christmas tree decorations are different and some, like a gilded maple leaf, do not exist in France. French tea towels are plain so some printed with American recipes like pecan pie or brownies, or an American saying would be interesting. You could send an assortment of used postage stamps. You could send models of American planes that he can build himself or mignature cowboys and Indians, American animals (no bisons or wolves in France) or toy soldiers. Dream catchers. Typical American posters featuring cannyons, landscapes or advertisements. Beakers are are not sold in France: they drink out of cups or bowls, whilst there is a vast choice to be found in the USA. Postcards featuring American Art, landscapes, famous people or buildings. Illustrated calendar. Halloween or Thanksgiving memorabilia (they are American celebrations). Pins or badges. Car number plate copies. Maple syrup is difficult to find in France. Candy is different, no marshmallow for instance or fudge but it would have to be sent in a tin or packet hermetically sealed in the factory.

    If I think of anything else, I’ll come back to you.
