If you are struggling for a gift idea to send home to your loved ones or are just visiting Germany, The Local is here to help - we have found the country's ten cheesiest gifts.
They include, an empty can of air, slices of "history" made last week, and food and clothing you would never think of buying anywhere else in the world.
Germany retains a strong regional and local identity and this is reflected in the souvenirs snapped up by visitors to the country.
Cold War kitsch in Berlin, fairy tale romance in Munich, maritime-themed gifts in Hamburg and Cologne in err... Cologne.
