Following is a lineup of possible gifts for groups meeting throughout Inland Mississippi. Most are edible and all will bring a smile to attendees’ faces.
When in Jackson, planners should consider yummy gifts from Campbell’s Bakery and LaBrioche Patisserie. LaBrioche serves delicious French macarons and Campbell’s creates iced teacakes in fun shapes, including the shape of Mississippi.
When in Greenwood, the Mississippi Gift Company is the perfect place to find regional gifts. Choices range from handcrafted pottery, coasters and decorative pillows to gourmet foods, including cheese straws and salsas, and gift baskets in the shape of Mississippi filled with Mississippi-made goodies.
One great gift option for the traveling meeting attendee in Hattiesburg is a sweets box assembled by Visit Hattiesburg. The pack includes a Mississippi cookie cutter and a Hattiesburg-branded shortbread treat iced with a lemon glaze.
Downtown Hattiesburg’s shops also inspire gift ideas, including comic books from Southern Fried Comics, records from T-Bones Records & Cafe and pottery from Blooms a Garden Shop.
