How about a small piece of art? Or maybe something with the GVSU logo?

I am not from there but in my short Google search I saw several apple orchards. I don’t know how common those are but I thought I would give it a shot! Good luck 🙂

How about a small bag of Grand Rapids popcorn? 🙂 A small (4 oz) bag is $1.50.

thanks for the suggestions bees! @heatherp- i was just looking at the popcorn- and that sounds perfect! $1.50 sounds even better!

We do have a lot of orchards – you could see if any do apple cider mix, or dried apple chips. Also, if you want to go just a smidge north, you can add Michigan’s real cash crop: Cherries!!!

Hey there! I just got married in November in Grand Rapids at the Amway…..I’m a fellow Laker, too! We bought carmel popcorn from th Grand Rapids Popcorn Company and put it in our welcome baskets. My husband and I live in Chicago–home of Garrett’s—so we thought this would be a cute throwback for our hometown and wedding sight!
