Shopping For Mom and Dad This Holiday Season

Parents are notoriously difficult to buy presents for. What do they want? What will they like? Who even knows? We do! We've got a few gifts that your Maryland parents will actually enjoy -- check them out here. 

For Mom

Chevron Crab and Anchor Scarf


Scarves are almost always hits for moms, and this elegant one is perfect for any weather! It features a design of crabs and anchors that will make her feel like the most striking woman walking along the waterfront (or in line at the supermarket). 

Maryland In My Heart Rose Gold Bracelet


Maybe your mom was born, raised, and still lives in Maryland -- and maybe she now lives far away and misses her Maryland home. (I mean, who wouldn't? It's pretty great here.) Either way, we know your mom still has Maryland in her heart. Now she can wear that love on her wrist in a gorgeous rose gold tone.

Seaside Silver Tin Candle


Mom probably loves her yearly trips to Ocean City, but not every Maryland mama can make out to the shore as often as she likes. Give her a little bit of the seaside with this lovely candle -- she'll get a whiff of one of her favorite places every time she lights it. 

Maryland Flag Turn Lock Wallet


Who says a wallet has to be boring? Not us, that's for sure. Treat mom to a luxurious quilted wallet with a secure turn lock that she'll always be able to find, even in her enormous tote bag that's full of everything else. 


For Dad

Orange Baseball Flag

Dad roots, roots, roots for the home team, win or lose. Shouldn't he have something to place in the yard so he can show off his hometown pride? This orange crabby flag is the perfect way for him to let everyone know who he supports and how much he loves Baltimore baseball. 

Natty Boh Logo Pint Glass


Whether Dad is planning to have a cup of Christmas cheer or he just needs something to pour his morning orange juice into, he's going to be glad to have this fun Mr. Boh pint glass! Don't be surprised if you never see him drinking out of anything else after you gift this to him. 

Off To The Races Belt


Belts are a perennial favorite for dads, but that doesn't mean that they need to be drab or boring. Shake things up this year when you put something like this Off to the Races belt in Dad's stocking! Turns out belts aren't just for holding up pants -- they're pretty stylish too. 

Seasonings Greetings Crew Sweatshirt


This is an ideal gift for any dad who wants to show off his Maryland pride but wants to stay warm, too! It's a warm and cozy sweater that's sure to get comments and compliments everywhere he goes, from the Christmas dinner table to the sports bar. After all, what dad could resist such a pun?
