there is no trick really, and did you know you can have 2, maybe 3 lisitings in DMOZ, so now you can ignored 3 times as much
Seriously, you can have a generic listing, a local listing, and a shopping listing (I didn't realise about the shopping listing until recently as I thought it was part of the generic listing).
Anyhow, there is no trick other than the following.
1. try for a local listing first, there is more chance you will get listed.
2. Make sure you read and understand the submission guidelines, in your case the title should be 'Chesapeake Bay Gift Baskets inc' no more than that.
The description should be what is on your site, not what you do. eg. we deliver gift baskets to the whole of the US subject to Alcohol state laws'... is not going to get you in.
The main reasons for a submission to get stacked (as in not reviewed immediately) are :~
1. Wrong category. This is jointly the biggest one.
2. bad title - this is the other joint reason.
3. bad description
