I am going to Bavaria, Germany this coming fall to spend a year abroad as an exchange student! Smiley
Anyways, I need to have some gifts for my host families.. Texas themed since I am in Texas. I was wanting to make them some things. Does anyone have any creative ideas for something like this?

craft, craft, craft. it's an addiction i'm not willing to give up.

I'm a Texan!! You could make them a wreath out of hay (dried grass.. or something of the likes..) with bluebonnets, longhorns, and barbed wire =)

We love everything shaped like Texas... in Houston we even have tortilla chips shaped like texas, and my freezer has texas shaped ice cube trays.. lol. So you could make them a wall hanging in the shape of texas, or a mosaic tiled stepping stone for outside.

It really depends on how your host family is, not everyone is 'countryish' like me, but they should appreciate something shaped like Texas. Our state flower is the bluebonnet, and we have Galveston island so beach themes are good too.

good luck and welcome to Texas!
