1. Karamell-Kuche (Germany)

You can smell the caramel several feet away from this store. The smell alone gets me in the door! There are many caramel flavored snacks including apples, chocolates, and so much more. This is a dessert lover’s favorite shop!


2. Heritage Manor Gifts (America)

Travel back in time to celebrate the early years of the USA with historical replicas, hats, and other items. Additional gift items include toys, apparel, and housewares.


3. Plaza de los Amigos (Mexico)

This enclosed “open air” marketplace can be found within the Mexico pavilion. It’s your one-stop shop for piñatas, ceramics, baskets, sombreros, and food. I am a sucker for the cat ceramic pieces here!


4. Mitsukoshi Department Store (Japan)

While you’re in Japan, stop by this department store. There are a TON of traditional Japanese gifts. One of my favorite coffee mugs came from this store…and yes, it has cats on it!


5. The Crown & Crest (United Kingdom)
