My husband’s cousin is getting married in Israel this month. Sadly, we can’t make it to the wedding but we want to send a nice gift. We are at a loss, however, for ideas of what to get him. We were hoping to get him something quintessentially American or New York, since he and his fiance have lived all their lives in Israel but have traveled extensively. They are practical, not very fussy people who would nevertheless appreciate a thoughtful gift. You smart ladies have any ideas? Thanks!!

My first thought was apple pie. So, I found this!

What about something like a Kosher (I’m assuming they are observant Jews living in Israel or at least have observant friends) American Cookbook?
Like this one that has kosher recipes for Jewish dishes as well as American comfort food:

Is there anything that is hard to get or super-expensive in Israel? With our friends in Egypt, they were always asking us to bring them dishes or pots and pans or electronics like mp3 players or boom boxes (yes. we brought an entire boom box and set of china in our suitcase one year). Maybe you could get them a nice American pot like a calphalon pot (I think they’re Amercian) or a china serving set by an American designer. Or salt and pepper shakers shaped like NY landmarks – I think they make like, empire state building ones and statue of liberty ones – those could be a fun way to "American" up a wedding gift.

there are a ton of places that sell vintage state dish towels that are so cute. maybe you can buy them something like a place setting, or pitcher, and include the fun dish towels in the box? They will also serve as environmentally friendly packaging.

If you go with a cookbook, get measuring cups and spoons too. The rest of the works uses metric.
