That is very sweet of you.

Sorry, I am not much help. The first thing that I think of when I hear the word Idaho is potato ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe it is because I love potatoes ๐Ÿ™‚

I second potato, that’s what I think of what I think of Idaho! I like what you’ve already thought about…what about if you put together your own guide/must do list of things for him to do?

Hm. Are there any other little novelties or things that represent your local area (like the huckleberry and potato things)? Maybe a tshirt? I would try the little stores that sell random, eclectic souvenirs and things or the little boutiques. They usually have pretty cool unique things.

Toffee, I think we’re going to include Idaho Spud Bars with out OOT bags.  Huckleberries were another idea I had for our guests, but I’m not sure what we would include.  The huckleberry flavored stuff doesn’t do real huckleberries justice, so maybe you & your FI can go huckleberry picking this summer.  You could freeze the berries & then use them to make special treats for your guests in January.  Maybe huckleberry muffins or something simple like that!  (Send me some if you go this route!)

I love the idea @mojito suggests for using huckleberries for muffins or bars or etc! that’d be unique and yummy

I love the idea of the Idaho Spud Bars! They are delicious :). You know, I’ve lived in Idaho my entire life and I can’t think of anything besides huckleberries that you could include.  Well, what pops up in my mind is something from BSU but that’s cause I’m in Boise and it’s EVERYWHERE. Maybe you could include something from the floating green. And it is really easy to make huckleberry jam, I think that would be nice to include – but I love huckleberry flavored candies. I fail at this, I’m sorry! I will keep thinking ๐Ÿ™‚

Are there any local (cheap) books, brochures or maps on local hikes, bike rides, or other outdoorsy things he’d be interested in? I like the idea of Boise State merch, maybe a water bottle he can carry around w/ his outdoorsy activities, a shirt he can wear, or a cap.
