Anne Tyler, David Simon, Laura Lippman, Tom Clancy. Baltimore has produced a ton of great writers. Shop for books by them.
Nothing says Baltimore like big hair, and John Waters' masterful movie (then musical) captured that charming sentiment perfectly. Shop for Hairspray DVDs and CDs.
The fruit of the Cheapeake Bay is bountiful, but how best to prepare it? A Maryland cookbook makes a great gift for anyone who loves to cook (or eat, for that matter)
Every Baltimore family has at least one die-hard Ravens fan, and chances are they'll love something with the purple and black logo.
The Birds will be back on top any day now (hopefully, hopefully). Regardless of their record, their colors and logo are cool.
Baltimore is blessed with tons of great restaurants, and we give you the opportunity to buy money-saving gift certificates to dozens of these places. Be sure to read the fine print, but if you do you'll find great deals are available here.
