We would like to get a gift certificate for a young couple in the Manchester/Bow/Concord area of New Hampshire. I was thinking maybe a nice restaurant or vineyard or a fun, outdoor activity. Does anyone have any ideas? We live across the country and I'm trying to do some online investigating but have had no luck.

What a nice idea! You're a good friend I guess before making a suggestion, I would ask a couple of questions. Are they are 'new' NH residents, or are they transplanted here from someplace else? I ask because when we moved the family half-way across the country, one of our favorite Christmas gifts was a box of "home" (things that we just couldn't find regularly west of the Mississippi). Silly things like FLUFF, real maple syrup, etc.)

I would also ask how active they are. Lots of folks like to stay active but don't enjoy (or can't be out in) the cold for long periods due to health conditions. For that type, I would suggest maybe a gift certificate to Vertical Dreams, an indoor rock/wall climbing place in Manchester.

Seems that there are new vinyards opening throughout NH. My personal favorite is Zorvino. They have dinners & events throughout the year with various themes, as well as a tasting room that is open daily. In January, they are having another Murder Mystery, which promises to be a great time with special guests.

Looking forward to other suggestions...

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll be sure to look into both of them.

They are very active and outdoorsy people with young children. Are there any restaurants that have a nice atmosphere and (most importantly) good food?

I'm so glad I have a couple of places to start looking
