Got Plans? Redux: Unique to D.C. Gifts
Washington D.C.: I'm visiting my boyfriend's parents next weekend and want to take a gift that is unique to D.C. Any thoughts? Don't want it to be too touristy, but something they couldn't get at home (rural Illinois).
This kind of question pops up every now and then in Got Plans? (most recently, yesterday) and it's one of my faves. There is something cool about bringing people a gift that reflects our city. "Unfortunately the first thing that popped into my head was Virginia ham, followed closely by one of those FBI/Witness Protection t-shirts. On a more serious note, how about a bottle of Virginia wine?" replied Stephanie. Readers chimed in with a few suggestions like White House Christmas ornaments, Virginia peanuts, pewter cups, Old Bay seasoning and other local flavor. Got something to add to the list? Let us know below.
