This Friday is the first time our respective parents will be meeting. His folks are from Hawaii, so each time they visit us they bring macadamia nuts and other local treats. This time will be no different - except they're also brining coffee and mac nuts for my parents!
We've been brainstorming what my parents could get them, but have come up with limited ideas. They don't like nicknackey stuff, they stay home on weekends (unless they go to the beach), and generally prefer to only buy and keep only what's necessary. Here's what we've got so far:
A basket of Mexican spice mixes - We know they love Mexican food (apparently you can't get decent mex-cuisine on the islands), but they don't really cook much themselves so we're not sure if this would be appreciated.
Red wine & chocolate - MIL loves red wine, FIL loves chocolate. Whether it's a romantic evening or they split it down the middle, they may enjoy this... but we're not sure they'll be able to bring it back home with the strict HI import laws (this goes for any food item we give them).
Dates - SoCal is known for its dates (the fruit), but they're sort of an acquired taste. Unsure if they'll like them.
Anyone else have bright ideas? Plz share!!!
