The Best, Thoughtful Gifts
As we approach the end of the year, we have a lot of occasions coming up where we get together and celebrate with friends and family.
Today, I'm rounding up my absolute favorite maps and globes which make the absolute PERFECT gift for everyone.
I'm talking as a hostess gift,
I'm talking for your boyfriend,
I'm talking for your father-in-law who is difficult to shop for
or for your mother-in-law who has everything.
Or as a thoughtful, personalized gift for your bridal party.
Or even for nieces, nephews, Godchildren, or any of the kids in your life!
I own every single one of these items and love them enough to keep them in my tiny home (in which I have very limited space).
When you love to travel, you can never have enough maps. It is so much fun to study geography by looking at a huge map on your wall rather than watch TV. SERIOUSLY. Learning is cool :)
Without further ado, here are my favs:
For your Partner:
This to scale National Geographic world map makes the perfect gift for your partner (this make a great 1st anniversary present as well since it is made out of paper that is laminated). It's under $50 and looks so much more luxe.
When we lived in Slovenia and didn't have a TV, we used to just "watch" this map. I absolutely love it and you can see it as my background in most of my lessons and videos!
For the children in your life:
(This also makes a great gender-neutral baby shower gift!)
This colorful map is educational, beautiful, under $50 and kids love the animal paintings.
For your bestie/sister/brother/friends who you will most definitely go to Paris with one day :)
This vintage Paris map in a simple black frame is such a chic gift for anyone in your life. The map itself is less than $10 and that is including shipping!
It looks completely authentic and helps you get to know all of the arrondissement so you can prepare for your next trip!
For Your In-Laws/Aunts/Uncles/Teachers/Babysitters/Hostesses/Bridal Party:
Personalized globes from my friend Cassie’s small business Blush Design Company! Each globe is gorgeously hand lettered which makes such a great gift that is beautiful to display (and inspirational too!) Each personalized globe is $49.
For anyone headed to Zagreb, Croatia
Town Tales Zagreb which is a super fun game for tourists and travellers to explore Zagreb in a fun, interesting and challenging way.
You get a handy map of Zagreb with a recommended walking tour and a deck of 54 illustrated cards. Your goal is to follow the cards around Zagreb, complete challenges and have a huge amount of fun while interacting with locals. The game is EUR 18.50.
This was 100% created by our best man, Lovro, who is just the greatest. He drew each of the drawings on the cards! Incredible :)
For your boss babe, freelancing, entrepreneur friends:
Support small business owners by purchasing a personalized cuff or necklace featuring the name of a favorite city, their business, or a hashtag they can relate to from Carolyn at Simply Southern Baubles. This is not sponsored - I just love supporting my fellow small business owners! A personalized cuff is $28.
Speak at Home Tonight
Finally, I have to mention Speak at Home Tonight's New Student Special that will only be available until Dec. 31st, 2017.
