    One thing for sure hasn't changed, and although not a gift, it should be most welcome...aspirin and ibuprofen. Last time I got a 20- piece pack of aspirin in Italy, and prices are about the same Europe wide, I payed nearly 10$.
    you can get ibuprofen ad aspirin for 20p in Tesco in the UK, I'm fairly sure it is not much more expensive last time I went to Belgium. As you say prices are pretty much the same all over the place in europe so deffinatly not $10

    20- pack aspirin(Bayer) 7 euros.
    20- pack Moment( ibuprofen) about the same. Maybe the UK is different, Belgium I don't know, but Holland is in general cheaper with meds, probably due to taxes.

    Neurofen (ibuprofen) is expensive like any brand name medicine is currently about 5 a box in the UK. Tesco's own brand generic you can get for about 20p

    Germany isn't that different to US (I think, I'm in Aus but I've been there and it's same as Aus anyway)

    Could you find out more about the people your visiting and maybe get them something to do with their interests? Eg. If they're big on farming get them something farm-related? Don't know what it would be though.

    Or get them something considered really 'American.' For me, little cans of Vegemite would be the obvious choice but you don't have that so whatever's considered 'American' try bringing some of that.

Europes pretty much like one big country these days so what they have in the UK they will have in Germany and we had Maple Syrup - and pancakes
    Ketchup I am friends with a german exchange student. He discovered ketchup. He puts it on EVERYTHING - carrots, rice, beef, you name it!

    Bring a thoughtful American souvenir of some sort. Can you knit? You could make a nice scarf or two for them, or some other artsy thing.
