Anchorage AK gift ideas

OldBay Jul 26, 2010 09:56 PM

I'm new to the Anchorage area and will be heading home (lower 48) on vacation. Anyone have any recommendations on gifts? I'm thinking meat in a cooler as part of my checked bags...

    Have you been to Indian Valley Meats? They sell all sorts of sausage and whatnot in the small shop next to the processing facility. Alaska Wild Berry Products also has a lot of stuff, although it's not as much fun to visit during tourist season.

      Not food but food related--I LOVE my ulu!

        Oh yes. I loved my ulu until it collapsed from overuse.

        Cloudberry jam?

        Smoked salmon, or crab legs...

          The chocolate-covered wild berry jellies are divine... and VERY Alaskan. These are wonderful pectin-gelled berry gems -- milk or dark -- which are my all-time favorite! For being a confection, they are the least damaging to any diet and are far more substantial than you would imagine. And there are a few flavors you must try: high-bush cranberry and salmonberry. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful... You'll find the assortments in most gift shops, however, I like going to their home store in Homer where I can pick out the exact flavors I want...
