It's Secret Santa time for a lot of businesses around South Jersey. I just got asked to participate in a Secret Santa 2017 exchange again this year, which includes people from out of the area.

The object of this particular exchange is to give someone a gift that is exclusive to our area, so I thought I would come up with a list of gifts to give a person that says something about our awesome South Jersey area.

    Salt Water Taffy

    This is a pretty easy one. Official taffy from Atlantic City or Ocean City would make a really cool gift for just about anyone with teeth. James Candy Company on the Boardwalk in AC and Shriver's on the Boardwalk in Ocean City would be two good choices!

    A 'Watch The Tram Car' T-shirt

    This gift would certainly put a smile on my face! I'm sure the person who's on the receiving side of this gift won't understand it, but oh well! In fact, I can hear the sounds of summer time on the boardwalk and "watch the tram car, please" in my head as I write this.

    A Hermit Crab

    Nothing says the Jersey Shore more than a Hermit Crab! Oh second thought, maybe giving a hermie may not be the ideal gift...

    Johnson's Popcorn

    Now this would be a really cool gift. I love their carmel popcorn and I can't stop eating it once I start! It's addicting! Find this at their locations in Ocean City and Wildwood.

    Fudge Kitchen's Fudge

    I can't think of a better way to say 'Happy Holidays' than by giving an assortment of fudge! You can find this at their locations in Cape May, Stone Harbor, Wildwood, and Ocean City.

    A Shot Glass

    This would also make a really cool gift. How about a shot glass from some iconic bars or casinos in Atlantic and Cape May counties like the Wonder Bar in AC, or O'Donnell's Pour House in Sea Isle City!

    'Locals Only' T-Shits and Mugs

    You could mix and match with a shot glass!

    Cape May Lighthouse Ornaments

    I love collecting ornaments and I always pick one up wherever I vacation. Giving an ornament from the Cape May Light House would be a really unique South Jersey gift.

    Lucy The Elephant Decorations

    A decoration and/or Christmas ornament from one of the most iconic and historical landmarks in all of New Jersey definitely HAD to be on our list of perfect South Jersey gifts.

    Kidabaloo 2018

    Well we have the perfect stocking stuffer for your youngster! Why not give the gift of a day full of laughs and non-stop entertainment? We are thrilled to announce that Kidabaloo will be back at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall in 2018!

    This year, we will have a special appearance from none other than Lizzy Greene!  You (or your kids) may recognize her as “Dawn” from Nickelodeon's hit television show, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn!
