Shopping For Marylanders Made Easy

It's about that time of year again. The weather's gotten chilly, the decorations are going up, and before you know it, Santa Claus will be coming to town. You don't want to get caught empty-handed when it's time to exchange gifts, right? Of course not! But shopping's going to be a breeze this year, thanks to all the great gifts we have for everyone in your Maryland family. From moms and dads to friends and coworkers, you won't have to check that list twice--we know you'll find something great for all your loved ones (and just in time for Black Friday!)

 

For Maryland Moms:

Moms know how to make the season bright! Give your Maryland mama something that she'll be proud to show off. Whether you pick out a piece of jewelry to wear, some decor to make her home even more beautiful, or an ornament to make her Christmas tree perfect, we have a feeling you'll be Mom's favorite this year.
For Maryland Dads:
Shopping for Dad has never been easier, now that we've collected these Dad-approved, Maryland-proud items! Whether he's a sports guy, a car guy, or just a guy who likes to stay warm, we have exactly what he needs this year.
For Coworkers:
You spend eight hours a day at work--luckily, you've got some work buddies to keep you sane. Show them how much you appreciate them with some Maryland-themed goodies that are sure to make you feel like Employee of the Month! 
For Besties:
They've road-tripped with you all over Maryland, answered you when you texted them at 3 am...don't they deserve some amazing gifts this holiday season? Only the best will do for your bestie--check out our picks for them here! From the practical to the goofy, your friends are going to love opening their gifts from you. 
For the Dog Lover:
Shopping for your favorite dog lover doesn't have to be ruff! Whether your dog loving buddy has a Chespeake Bay Retriever or just loves Maryland as much as they love their pooch, these gifts are going to be perfect (and the dog will love them, too!)
For the Christmas-Obsessed:
We all have that one friend who's planning the perfect Christmas before the autumn leaves have even started falling. Indulge their love of all things holiday by giving them some of these Maryland-themed Christmas accessories!
For the College Student:
The college students have been hitting the books and cramming for finals--give them a gift this year that shows them how proud you are of their accomplishments! From school pride to Maryland love, we've got all the things they need to start next semester right.
For the Marylander Far From Home:
A Marylander who's had to move is sure to be missing the lacrosse and crabcakes of home. Send them a package of Maryland-themed goodies to remind them of what they're missing!
For the Sports Lover:
This person would leave their own wedding early to make sure they don't miss the Ravens or O's game--they live in purple, black and orange! Give them the football and baseball gifts they don't already have this year.
