Notable Marylanders share what they're giving as holiday gifts [Pictures]
Setting aside the baggage of frantic scheduling and manic shopping, the holidays still provide an opportunity to stop, to celebrate with our closest relations and friends, and to give. This year, the Sun Magazine asked several prominent Marylanders to pause -- for a phone call or an email -- and reveal what they planned to bestow upon those dearest to them. The answers, as you'll see, range from sensual treatments to sentimental treasures.

London native Kwame Kwei-Armah, the artistic director of Center Stage, has home on his mind. When the playwright and actor took over the company last year, he left behind several members of his family. This holiday season, Kwei-Armah is making sure they come to him in Baltimore, where Center Stage will be presenting "Bus Stop" from Nov. 21 through Dec. 23. "My top gift will be a gift to myself: airline tickets for members of my extended family to come from London to share the holidays with me and the family."
