If you are going to be staying with a host family, it is customary to bring your host family a little gift. It is not supposed to be expensive. Usually something that represents the area, or culture you are from. If you can manage it, some form of native food that can clear customs has always gone over well. They will be grateful for anything you are proud to give and share with them!
