Gift ideas for South African hosts

Hi all,

I’m going to South Africa in a couple of weeks and am trying to think of ideas for small portable gifts to bring from the UK for the friends and family we’ll be staying with.
I’ve been racking my brains, and chocolate and tea are all that I’ve come up with so far (and I’m not sure whether the chocolate would withstand the heat).

Does anyone have any fail-safe gift ideas for hosts when travelling?

Thank you!
Alison

I often go with biscuits! There are loads of local specialities around, and they always go down well. Plus they come in tins a lot of the time, which means they’re more likely to survive the journey…

Word right out of my mouth – I was going to suggest shortbread :)
