I'm going to Denmark in a little over a week and I'd like to get my host family gifts that represent Louisville and/or Kentucky. Does anyone have any ideas? They can be bought or made but need to be able to go through customs and fly on a plane (so no whiskey or fragile items).

(this was already posted in the gift idea section but then I realized I had to represent our state, so I hope someone from Kentucky can offer some good advice)

Thanks so much!

I'm so glad that there is already a thread for this, because I have a related question.
I'm going on a mission trip to Kenya and we were told to bring some small trinket that represents where we are from to give to a child before we leave.
I was thinking I'd knit something for the kids on the 20 hour plane ride there, but I don't know how to make it represent Kentucky.  Anyone have an idea?  I was thinking finger puppets.

My mom once got someone a neat gift of a cigar box decoupaged with tobacco leaves, to represent kY. It was really nice looking.

i just got home yesterday, they loved the gifts. it turns out like half of the people going got their hosts the keep louisville weird shirts.

finger puppets would be so cool! you should definetly try that. maybe you could make one of a cardinal, too? and/or a wildcat for that matter (i was just thinking the cardinal is our state bird) good luck on your trip!

Uh, yeah, I made a finger puppet.  Two, actually, but one's face was messed up.
Too bad my trip is over and I forgot all about them in the bottom of my bag.  Cry  (Most of the other people didn't have a gift either, because it was just an optional thing.)
But here is my little mazungu:

Now I'll just have to convince my olds to let me go back next year so I can give this to somebody.  Aw darn.   Cheesy
