Our American Girl Scout troop has been invited to stay in the homes of Girl Guides and their families in and around London next summer after a worldwide Girl Scout/Girl Guide camp event we will be attending has ended.
I would like recommendations for proper host/hostess gifts to show our appreciation to the families that will be inviting us and our girls into their homes for a space of three to five days.
Also, our girls range in age from eleven to eighteen years. Are there any differences in etiquette or household operations between an American and British household that would be useful in explaining to the girls (and accompanying adults) to help them to not offend or embarass themselves or their hosts?
All advice is appreciated. Thank you.
