While a weekend in Maine may provide you with a short taste of the Maine life, collecting the beautiful local wares and gifts only available in Maine is the perfect way to bring Maine home with you,  wherever that may be. Maine is brimming with skilled artisans whose crafts and edible treats make the perfect souvenir or gift for the friend or relative who did not have the opportunity to visit Maine firsthand. Companies like Appleton Basket Company, Gift Vine, and Mainely Sea Glass are great places to find collections of Maine specialty gifts.

The Appleton Basket Company has a gift basket chocked full of Maine goodies for every occasion.  Straight from Appleton, Maine, these customized hand selected gift baskets are the perfect gift for holidays from Father’s Day to Christmas, and many other special events such as weddings and graduation. They are also a great way to let someone special in your life know that you are thinking of him or her. Each basket is filled with products found only in Maine, from special grilling rubs and sauces, to handmade spa soap. For those looking for an authentic Maine take-home or a beautiful and unique gift, the Appleton Basket Company is the one stop boutique to satisfy all your gifting needs.

The Gift & Vine, based in Yarmouth, is the ultimate stop for specialty wines and Maine goods. The Gift & Vine makes gift baskets upon order and carries New England favorite brands like Stonewall Kitchen, Yankee Candle, and Willow Tree. Perhaps the pride of The Gift & Vine is its fantastic selection of wine. The Gift & Vine carries wines from all over the world, with a selection to satisfy even the savviest wine connoisseur. And of course, The Gift & Vine carries many locally produced wines. For the sophisticated tourist, The Gift & Vine has everything one could want.

Residents of Maine have a special relationship with the ocean. Mainely Sea Glass has captured the essence of that unique relationship with its gorgeous, sea glass jewelry. Each piece, whether it is a necklace, bracelet, pin, or set of earrings, is made with the utmost care and attention to detail, crafted to enhance the beauty of the sea glass. The sea glass comes in a variety of colors and settings, and each piece is uniquely shaped by the sea. Mainely Sea Glass jewelry is a wonderful gift for the Maine lover, and a great way to carry a little piece of Maine with you wherever you go. 

During your next visit to Maine, do not forget to take your Maine made products and specialty items with you. From beautiful artisan baskets to handcrafted jewelry, these treasures will never fail to bring you back to the beauty of Maine and the craftsmanship of its people.
