I could go on. I have posts about all of these things. You could also check the new page I have been working on with links to product suppliers.

Virginia has a lot of coast, so maybe one could be beach themed (decorative shells, sun lotion, sunglasses, a cd of ocean sounds), seafood themed (the only thing I can think of is Bertha's Mussels, but that's Baltimore, maybe there's a local restaurant, or something?). Other things near Richmond that I can think of are the Naval ship yards, but I can't think of anything for those other than little models of carriers and subs, hardhats, and steel toes, and the last two just seem silly.

It sounds like fun, good luck :D

I was thinking of putting together a few baskets, each with a different theme. What specific items do you think I should look into? Please keep in mind that this I'm in Richmond, Virginia and not San Francisco or Seattle.
