Maybe your child just went off to college in another state, or maybe your best friend just moved to Chicago for a new job–in any case, chances are you know someone who is homesick for Baltimore. So why not send them Baltimore in a Box?
The concept is pretty self-explanatory: The B.I.A.B. contains classic local products that are sure to bring on waves of nostalgia for home — think Natty Boh, Berger Cookies, Zeke’s coffee, Old Bay, Utz crab chips, Mouth Party caramels, Domino sugar cubes. The box may also contain some non-food items, like a copy of the Baltimore City Paper or some of those iconic yellow-and-pink Big Boyz Bail Bonds pens.
At $35 a pop, they’re not cheap. You could probably go out an assemble a Baltimore-themed gift box yourself for around that same price. But the B.I.A.B. crew will do it all for you, and they’ll throw in a few surprise gifts to boot. It may not be a cure for Baltimore homesickness, but it sounds like a pretty good remedy nonetheless.
