My boss is from Boston but she hasn’t been up there for a very long time.
I am heading up there in a few weeks to visit a friend who is not local to New England.
What are some things I can bring back as a gift for my boss? I really want to get her stuff that she’d miss from childhood. I was thinking of this being her hostess gift since she’s throwing me a shower.
I already know to get that Marshmallow Fluff stuff since down in GA we only have the Kraft brand available. What else can you recommend?

Go spend some time in the Fanueil hall area – there are TONs of “Boston” souvenirs! Things like new england clam chowder recipes & ingredients, boston baked beans, lobster stuffed animals…you’ll definitely find something!

@Laur12: Are the beans those candy coated peanuts??
@BrandNewBride: I guess I’ll have to go to that area!

My sister misses things like 1. Ken’s italian dressing (they don’t have it where she lives). 2. Seafood like steamers and lobster (although they can get it, it isn’t often and can get very expensive). 3. Dunkin donuts coffee (closest one is 45 minutes away).
You could also order things online to be delivered like “Captain Parkers Pub” clam chowder base from Cape Cod, best chowdah evah :).

Oh good, definitely stock up on the Fluff! Faneuil Hall really is your one stop tourist shop, so echoing all that as well. If you wanted to drop more dough on a REALLY GOOFY keepsake and you think your boss would be into it, may I suggest a “Gurgling Cod”? ;D

@Chrysoberyl: Unfortunately a lot of the best stuff from Boston is seafood which is hard to transport back! I don’t know your budget but I’ve sent lobsters through Legal Seafoods before – it is pricey though.
