Chili/Hot sauce?  I know that people specifically request certain ones when my colleagues go to Tucson.

I too wanted to add some Tucson flavor to our event since a lot of people traveled from afar to attend our wedding. So…here is what we came up with:

This is a lil’ labor intensive but the pay off was HUGE at my wedding last weekend: My mother and I went to (of all places) Ace Hardware and bought little half-pint canning jars because they had a wider opening and were dirt cheap. We then made my mother’s world famous salsa in a large batch and included the salsa in all of the Out of Town Bags at the hotels our guest’s were staying at. We put pretty labels on the jars of salsa that said, "Mother of the Bride’s Salsa de Tucson." We got soooo much positive feedback from people who loved our Out of Town Bags and all the "stuff" (including chips) we had in there but nothing was as good as my mom’s salsa! We had people from L.A. begging her for the recipe.

At the top of mt. Lemmon, in the place that had the terrible fire awhile ago, there is a little gift shop that sells saguaro cookies cutters.  They probably sell them in Tucson proper, that just happens to be where I found mine when I lived there.  If you can’t make salsa, I think cacti cookies would be a good way to go.  Plus, everyone will be saying "I have saGuaro cookie" tee hee hee 😉

Those Saguaro cookie cutters are also sold at the gift shops at Saguaro National Park (if you can’t make it up to Mt. Lemmon)…they also have Javelina cookie cutters.  We’re thinking of either making the cookie cutters  (a combo of the two) our favor or doing actual cookies like Ms. Dorsay suggested.

Lisa Frank is also based in Tucson! It’d be a great gift for the kids!

That sounds like a really nice gift.  I’m orginally from Tucson, so I would have suggested something with saguaros and salsa, or prickly pear jam (yum).
