I'll start the list.
A bottle of your local brew (spirits)
Something traditional to your area
I'd have to agree. Maybe shoot over to VT and grab some Maple Syrup or Maple butter.
You can take Jack Daniels, but they can get that anywhere in PL. I did bring some JD single Barrel which was a hit, but I'm sure you can also find that. I also bring local micro brew beer.
