Hungary for ideas???
For a meal and relaxing day of fun, I absolutely loved the Central Market. It was a local 2 story open market selling fresh produce and trinkets. We spent the day there trying all of the local delicacies. Langosh and the sausages. Lots of Hungarian beer.
For gifts, of course everyone has to get paprika. As well, I think some other handicrafts can be found there. We spent the day drinking and shopping and drinking. I liked it because I felt like I was buying a local item, more so than what one finds at the tourists "Made in China" souvenir shops.
The "Original Tour" gives a good overview of the city and they give you info on what to eat, drink, etc. I'm sure the guides could help you with your questions. I also went on the Communism Tour which was really, really interesting.
And: Do go to one of the spas (such as Gellert Bath or Szechenyi Bath), even if you are not a spa type.
