Side note on the British gifts for Anglophiles
You probably already noticed that used the terms Britain, UK, and England interchangeably. I am well aware of the fact that that’s technically not correct, but today’s post covers English gifts, as well as only British gifts or gifts that apply to the entire UK. I will continue to use the different names throughout this post. I just thought this information may help to clear things up.
Now let’s continue to the best UK gifts for travelers!

#1 British themed games
What’s a better gift for someone who is obsessed with The UK than games that remind them of their favorite part of the world?
I selected a few of the best and funniest games.
- British Royals Murder Mystery. A super random game where you have to find out who murdered the royal family. It includes various characters from the actual family.

#4 English football gifts
If you are looking for Brit gifts for football fans (or soccer fans), getting some merchandise from the English Premier League teams is a pretty good idea.

Heaven is where the police are British, the lovers French, the mechanics German, the chefs Italian, and it is all organized by the Swiss.
