    When we go over to HK, we have a home visit at one of their houses... what is a typical British gift I can give to the family? It needs to be something not made in china ideally

    Hmmmm...a teapot? Or a set of tea towels? I know some people find them silly, but I really like the tea towels that have local information printed on them. I have one from Wales and it's wicked nice. It has words in Welsh and English and other "pictures." It's a very nice thing!

    Some English tea and a teapot though. I think that would be very nice.

    Some typically English china, like Royal Doulton or Royal Worcester or something? I know you can get it abroad but it'll be nice coming from a lovely English man! I always find something a bit offbeat from there like an "egg coddler" seems eccentrically British! And I'm with Tink, accompanied by a local tea towel, like from Chester!

    A china pot and 'English' tea from china? I reckon they've got that stuff!

    I would also say something with local information on it, tourists go mad for that stuff!
