What European Foodie Gifts Are Best for Californians?

I hope this question is right for this sub. I'm hoping that people who are very familiar with European foods and have a good idea what can be purchased at a high end deli or grocery store in a major city in CA. I want to bring my brother and sister in law a big package of high end foodstuffs from Europe for Christmas. So it has to meet regulations (no cured meats, sob), be ok without serious refrigeration for about 15 hours (very hard cheeses fine, soft cheeses not) and most importantly, not be easily available in the states. I can find a wide selection of Italian, German, Spanish, Greek, and Eastern European stuff here, and possibly French if I decide to drive across the border. They both enjoy eating nice things and cooking, so items with both uses are fine. I'm getting some wine and liquor too. Any ideas or must-haves? What would you want if I was bringing this package to you? submitted by /u/hereforlulziguess [link] [comments]
