Random Side Note About The German Gifts

Before we continue to the 25 German gift ideas, I just wanted to share a fun fact because I simply love fun facts. But feel free to skip this part and continue to the gifts for Germany lovers.

I already introduced the word “Germanophile” in the introduction. It’s the name for someone who loves Germany. But did you know you could also call them Teutonophiles or Teutophiles?

Yeah, that’s something I learned while writing this post. Thought it was worth sharing. Though, I have no idea where the Teut-part came from. If you do know, please share in the comments and educate me and your fellow readers!
