Expat may return to the US from Europe, any suggestions for what to stock up on before moving?

Hello everyone,

After more than 12 years in Spain, it seems that I may be moving back to the US in the next few months.

I would like to ask all of you foodies out there for ideas on what to stock up on before I move back, whether for my own use or for gifts. Things that either are not found in the US or that are substantially more expensive than in Europe (whether food or cookware, spices, dishes, soaps, whatever it may be). Maybe something you bought abroad and now treasure and wish you could find more of! I have lived abroad for so long that I really am not aware of what I may not be able to find once I return.

What do you buy on your trips to Europe, or what do you miss once you get home?

I know this is a broad topic, just thought I'd put it out there. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
