Ideas on Creating a Maryland-Inspired Gift Basket - Articles Surfing
If you're looking for gift basket ideas, look in Maryland on the east coast of the USA. The state has a rich history as a border location and that brings an interesting combination of North and South to its residents. You will generally see more of a Southern mentality when visiting the rural parts of Maryland, while Northern culture is more prevalent in the greater populated Central Maryland area. If you want to create original gift baskets that showcase the many facets of this town, you'll need to look a little deeper than just on the surface.
The economy of Maryland is quite diverse, leading the way in the advancement of life sciences with its more than 350 biotechnology firms scattered about the state. It is here that the University of Maryland, Johns Hopkins University, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are positioned. One of the best medical schools is located in Maryland (Johns Hopkins), so of course a gift basket stemming from the profession would be a great reward for those looking to enter the medical profession. Include basic items such as medical tools of the trade; gag candy pills with witty labels, or chocolate tongue depressors.
Maryland is a big food producer and gets a good bit of attention from the commercial fishing industry. You'll find some of the largest catches in Chesapeake Bay, such as blue crab, striped bass, and oysters. Gift baskets that give people many ways to season, prepare, and cook seafood can be presented through a variety of spices, cooking utensils, and cookbooks.
Chesapeake Bay is a place to find a gift basket idea that will touch dog lovers. It is the Chesapeake Bay retriever. As the state dog we can find many gift basket ideas that owners will love giving to their furry friends. Be sure to include a great selection of essentials such as a dog leash, collars, chew toys, bones, snacks, treats, and training tools. You can also celebrate the love for the dog with themed items, such as decorative mugs sporting the pet's image; dog care manuals, dog-shaped chocolates, ornamental picture frames, and expressive license plate covers.
If you are looking for more ideas in the state, look no further than Annapolis (home of the United States Naval Academy); College Park (home of the College Park Airport, which is the oldest continuously-operated airport in the U.S.); and Silver Spring (one of the largest urban districts in the state).
Most states have sports teams that offer ideas for a great gift basket, Maryland is no exception. Try using the official state bird of Maryland; the Baltimore Orioles serve as Major League Baseball representation. You'll also find the NFL team, the Baltimore Ravens, and a major indoor soccer league called the Baltimore Blast. Include a theme created around square dance and offer instructional tapes, music, and accessories.
