What should I send in a care package to a good friend that recently moved from Tampa, Fl to Spain?

My good friend recently got a job teaching children English in a small city of Baeza, Andalucia, Spain. He has lived in America his entire life and is leaving all of his family and friends. It's a big transition for him, so I want to send him a comfort package. I just have no idea what to send him in the care package. Please help me out. Any advice is welcome!!

How nice you are. Definitely his favorite candy bars, homemade cookies wrapped really well, a newspaper from his home town, recent pics of family, friends, house, pets, and you.

I agree with the first answerer. Having lived in Andalucia (Cadiz) for 2.5 years, I will tell you this... their snacks are not like ours. He will CRAVE a chocolate candy bar.

Plan your next trip to spain to visit with him on your next vacation. Save some money. I bet he would love to have a CARD sent in the mail.

Anything with peanut butter. It's almost non-existant over there. I found it once in the "exotic foods" aisle of the supermarket.

I live in Andalucia and moved here over two years ago. I love the food here. Having said that, most supermarkets stock international products now. I can´t think of anything that I really miss from the UK and it will be the same for your friends. The food here is much fresher. The fruit is left on the trees longer and... More

20 yrs ago, many of our foods like M&Ms and peanut butter were almost impossible to find. But now they have everything from Mt. Dew to Chips Ahoy cookies. You might want to ask him first what he wants that he *can't* find. If he is looking for something in particular, tell him to go to a Carrefour store, they have... More

When my daughter lived overseas we brought her peanut butter and Kraft's macaroni and cheese. She was able to get chocolate, but in a small city, he may not get what he wants in the way of chocolate. Is there a cereal he likes? In Europe it's just corn flakes. No sugary cereals.

The one thing I still miss is concord grape jelly, you can't find it in Spain (at least not yet)... As to peanut butter, most places in Spain have a couple of english brands, and there is even a spanish brand now... (35 years ago, when I arrived as a newly-wed, we couldn't even find canned sweetcorn!.. But over the... More

Why don´t you just ask him instead of shipping things he can buy here? Really, rather send him a letter or a postcard and let him enjoy our local food. Save the money for a trip to visit Spain.
