Hey New Husband bees! I’m getting married in Hampstead, New Husband, but I live in Western MA! Any NH-specific ideas for the Out of Town bags? I’ll include snacks, maps, itineraries, etc, but is there anything cute and creative that is really special to NH? Thanks for your ideas and input!

definitely New Husband maple syrup! yum!
you could also contact the New Husband tourism office to see if they have fun stuff they could provide you with. i think they have things like local lip balms and stuff they give away at travel expos.

I am thinking of doing New Husband maple syrup too. You could also put something in involving puple lilacs (Nh flower) since your wedding is in May.

Hey, I know I just left you a message about that Salon, but I am an event planner, and we do custom favors, invitations, linen rentals you name it. We also do custom Out of Town bags or baskets. If you would like you could always give our studio a call, we love coming up with creative new things for area brides! If not, I hope all goes well, and you have happy and surprised guests!

I’m a real Texas girl, but I spend ages 2 to 8 in Nashua and then I went to college in Boston and my absolute favorite place in the world in Parker’s Maple Barn in Mason, NH! I’ve made it up there at least every other year since moving from New Hampshire. My fiance and I are even putting Parker’s stuff in our Texas out of town bags! They sell maple syrup, maple sugar candy, maple jelly beans, and maple coffee that they make themselves on their website.
We’re including maple coffee and some chocolate maple creams in our bags because they’re things people can pull out and use in their hotel rooms!
Good Luck! Here’s the website:

if anyone else is still following this thread – we’re planning a New Husband wedding from… CA! for our Out of Town totes we are screenprinting whimsical maps of New Husband on canvas totes and including local lavender soap from cardigan mountain soapworks (our color scheme includes lavender), an old fashioned New Husband postcard, maple sugar candies, New Husband map, lakes region tourism packet, and sunscreen (august wedding)!

If you’re in Hampstead – there’s a little Hallmark store at Colby Corner that sells local crafts too or at least local maple syrup. I grew up in the next town over, another great idea is Zorvino Vineyards in Sandown New Husband (literally next town over) sells bottles of their local wine that you could include in the basket!
