What could I buy for a gift for staying at someone's house in America?

I want to get them something that you can buy in my country (New Zealand) and not in America. When I go there they will have a 4 y/o Girl, I think a 10 Y/O Boy and two adults, they are relatives. What kind of thing should I get them, Postage stamps? Eskimo lollies (so delicious)? Coins? Wine? postcards? What would you want?
I just noticed that wine is out of the question, in America you have to be 21 to posses alcohol. wtf.

Has something like this ever happened to you?

I recently bought a sheet of postage stamps. After a day of shopping in the city I could not find the stamps in my purse where I knew I had put them. I assumed I had accidentally pulled them out while paying for other purchases in the city. Today, two weeks later when I sat down at the computer the stamps were laying in front of my monitor. My daughter says she didn’t do it and I believe her. Being ill, she rarely leaves the house. What are your views on this?
