Route One's Holiday Shopping Guide: Kids Edition

Route One Apparel Staff

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hannukkah, Kwanzaa or Winter Gift Exchange Day, it's stressful buying that perfect present. You really want your gift to matter, and for the recipient to really love it! Well, take a deep breath, walk yourself out of the mall, and sit in a cozy chair in front of your computer. Everything your Maryland-loving family and friends could want is right here at Route One Apparel, and we've got gift guides for everyone in your life.

If there's anyone who goes crazy for presents, it's children. They're all about tearing into that wrapping paper, hoping to find that perfect something. And if those kids are true-blue Marylanders, then we know just what to give them!

Maryland Flag Santa Hat, $14.99


Kids love to play Santa. Their parents love for them to keep their ears warm--and to take adorable photos to put on Facebook! Accomplish all of those with one present, a fluffy and festive Maryland-themed Santa hat. Surely Santa's all-red and white getup could allow the addition of yellow and black, right?

Made in Maryland Onesie, $16.50


The best things in life are made in Maryland--crab cakes, music, and maybe that special baby in your life! Whether its for your own little munchkin, or for a niece/nephew, friend's child or grandkid, there's no better way to let everyone around know that baby has as much Maryland pride as you do.

Greyscale Maryland Flag Lanyard, $9.99


Fact: kids lose everything. Keep their house keys, bike keys, school IDs, and other kid necessities organized with this understated lanyard that'll go with whatever outfit they like. Avoid mixups--no one else's kid will have a key holder this stylish!

Maryland Flag Christmas Stocking, $12.99


Got plenty of goodies for the kiddos already, but don't have anywhere to put them? Route One already has you covered. This stocking is vibrant and Maryland-colored, yet perfect for Christmas! Fill it to the brim with Route One items, and they'll have the best holiday season they can imagine.

Maryland YMCA Crab Shirt, $22.99

Even after the holidays are over, your growing kids will need a fun, Maryland-y shirt to wear! Try our youth shirt featuring our crabby friends spelling out their favorite state. This one is sized for youths, so there's no need to order an extra-small adult shirt.
