FOR HER
Rosebud Salve

The beauty staple made right in Woodsboro for over 100 years, we love Rosebud salve's multitude of varieties and uses.

FOR HIM
Sixteen Tons

We love the vintage-cool men's shop, Sixteen Tons, out of Baltimore. In addition to apparel and accessories, they sell grooming products, like Brummel Shave Cream ($18), online and in-store.

FOR KIDS
Gnomeworks Puzzles

For kids young and old, we love the artsy selection of puzzles by Gnomeworks. This ferris wheel one is definitely frame-worthy.

FOR HOME
Pewter Keepsake Box

Engravable and lined with velvet, this pretty keepsake box ($45) is meant for the sweetest memories.

FOR THE HOST
Angelina's of Maryland Crabs & Crab Cakes

Did you really think we could leave Maryland crabs off our list? Impossible! These craveable crustaceans can be shipped anywhere, and crab cakes start at just $3.85.
