I was looking for something special with a Maine theme to send to my in-laws in California when I came across "Box of Maine" on Etsy. It looks like my kitchen cupboard! My in-laws had to cancel their trip to Maine this year so I wanted to send them a little something. I love this idea!

Here's the listing:

"We have a variety of products from some of the most well-known Maine companies and brands. Our selections include iconic Maine food items like Whoopie Pies, Maine maple products, wild Maine blueberry products like jellies, jams, and juices. Other regional favorites like Marshmallow Fluff, Humpty Dumpty potato chips, and B&M Brown Bread are also available.

In addition to food items, we also have some interesting and unique gift items that represent creatures and places found around the Pine Tree State. Lobsters and lighthouses, moose, lakes, and loons – we allow you to build a gift box that will remind someone of the parts of Maine they love the most.

When you grow up in Maine, attend school here, or visit during the summer – something happens. This amazing state leaves a mark on you, and no matter how far you roam or how long you are away, a part of you yearns to be back.

That’s who we created the Box Of Maine for – anyone that misses their time spent in Maine. Our gift boxes are filled with iconic Maine items that will bring back fond memories of our great state, and will remind the Mainiacs at heart just what they have been missing. If you know someone that misses Maine, send them a box today!
