4 Place-Based Gifts Grads Will Keep Forever

Get your grad a gift that’s brimming with lasting sentiment.

We’ve rounded up four Made in the USA picks that you can customize with any location you choose.

Location ideas:
For high school grads
Personalize with their hometown or soon-to-be college town
For university grads
Personalize with their college town or the city they’re headed to next


Latitude/Longitude Etched Rock Glasses

Give the grad an unexpected toast with these custom etched glasses, showing off the coordinates of his/her hometown or college town. They're made by a 100-year-old Pennsylvania company. Don’t know the coordinates? (Who does?) Give the Maker the location, they’ll find the latitude and longitude for you. Also from this Maker: etched wine glasses.


Circular City Maps

Is your grad getting their degree in a big city? About to move to one? Give a letterpress map that pays homage in an artistic, minimalist fashion. Each design is hand drawn, then each map is hand printed in Oregon.


Place-Based Pillows

Turn your grad’s hometown, college neighborhood, or childhood street into a customized pillow. This Massachusetts Maker takes nautical maps and topographical charts, then creates a purely personal home accessory. They make tote bags, too.


Wooden City Coasters

Your grad can celebrate their favorite neighborhood with these custom cedar wood coasters. Laser-engraved with the areas of a dozen+ major U.S. cities, the set is cut from a single map—making each of the four coasters distinct. They make luggage tags and wall maps, too.
