Digestives. My friend who studied at QMU keeps raving about them.
I like the Harrods mug/tea idea too.

Shortbread is quite a hit at christmastime here in UK.

Tea is very british…….

Cadburys chocolate is very good,  but Galaxy is nicer chocolate. 

seek out Jaffa Cakes……to die for,  i dont know if they are british or wether you can get them in US?  but they are gorgeous. 

Small boxes of Thorntons chocolates…..the best in UK

@UK Bride:

Definately shortbread over digestives. 

shortbread is buttery and rich,  digestives are nice, but they would be what we get for the office,  cheap and cheerful….and lovely dunked in a cup of tea!  but for a bit of class and sophistication,  shortbread.

Thorntons have there own shops……well not for much longer i hear,  they wil be going online only from next year…..i am having thorntons favors……2 little heart shaped chocoaltes in a wrapped box  for £2   each,   but they sell boxes that hold 1,2,4, or 8 chocolates……its really the best chocolate i ever had…..(the champagne truffles are TO DIE FOR!!!!!!!!!!!

 

what kind of chocolate biscuit ?  try and describe them and i will try and name them…..

there are chocolate digestives?   could it be them? 

but if you go for chocolate biscuits……chocolate Hobnobs are really tasty…

 

MARMITE!    yuk……there is a TV  advert….”MArmite…..your love it or you hate it”  i hate it.   i LOVE the smell but jesus its vile.   its like US   veggiemite,  but has beef extract.    i use it in cooking though and its nice……i just spread some over roasting potatoes….

Christmas pudding…..i LOVE  christmas pudding,  and i serve mine with with either Brandy butter or clotted cream…….or both..   being so close to christmas,  that might be a nice idea…

@UK Bride:

as an out of town guest,  the Harrods keepsake gifts sound nice,  typically british…

for edible ideas,  i think again the typical english thing would be the christmas pudding…….shortbread is scottish,  but very popular…..especially at christmas.

and let me remind you again about THORNTONS!   LOL

http://www.thorntons.co.uk/

if it was summer,  i would have said tea and scones with jam and clotted cream.  thats  delicious ….you still could but its more a summer thing.
