Christmas gifts

Before leaving for America we packed our bags with many gifts for friends and family. Most things were edible and I was surprised to learn that Kinder uberraschung eier (small chocolate eggs with a toy inside) are illegal for import to the US. Evidently there is an issue with having something inedible completely covered in something edible.

After gearing up for our trip we celebrated our own Christmas for two. I decided to give Stefan a surprise trip for use at a future date since we really appreciate gifts of time. I already have a few ideas as to where we could go and what we could do, and he won't have to lift a finger. He won't even know where we are going until we check in at the airport or get on the train.

What you found about Kinder eggs is not true. I bring them home every time I travll to the UK and they even sell them at a store here called World Market.

I didn't have an issue bringing them in. I will have to check the World Market. I thought it was ridiculous when I read they were illegal, but people are sue happy in the US.
