Well...there's always Devra's wonderful assortment of books....If you 
like beads, a couple of merchants sell some wonderful beads (I have a 
bead that I purchased several years back that was made from a glass rod 
found when a glassworks in Murano was uncovered).  Another possibility 
would be jewelry...lots of merchants have wonderful amber and other 
sorts of jewelry.  There's a lady who sells stuffed animals that she 
makes...we have a wonderful falcon from her shop.  And, if they can keep 
the milk in a cooler with ice, having purchased it just before they 
leave, it should be ok when they get home.  A Pennsic 35 t-shirt would 
be nice.  I have one from just about every war since I started attending 
many, many years back.

Can't think of anything else off of the top of my head...but that gives 
you a start!
