If you’re looking for a gift for family who lives out of state or far away this State Photo Frame and State personalized necklace are great gift ideas.
One of the things I love about the Holidays is getting to spoil the ones I love. I try to gift items that I’ve made for the ones I love, but sometimes I just run out of time. Thankfully Amazon has added an awesome feature to their site – Amazon Handmade. As someone who shops a lot on Amazon I was thrilled when I learned about this new feature. Not only can I shop for my essentials like new water filters and phone cords (because thanks kids for constantly breaking them), but I can also add in a few Handmade gifts for family in the process. One stop shopping y’all. It’s my absolute favorite.
Since all of our family is in another state it means we don’t get to see them often, but it also means that I try to make their gifts meaningful. This year I wanted to gift a bit of Colorado to our family for Christmas, but I wasn’t sure how to accomplish that. I browsed around Amazon Handmade for a bit and came across what I found to be the perfect gifts that will show our love for our family while sharing a bit of Colorado with them.
Now, you don’t have to live in Colorado to give these gifts. The best part is that you can pick whatever state you live in for these gifts.
First up is the Colorado Photo Map which is a mat cut into the shape of Colorado. It doesn’t come with a frame, but you can add one for a little bit more. I chose to add the frame since I am giving this as a gift. Add in a family picture or picture of the kids and send it off to Grandma & Grandpa or whomever you see fit. You can all available states for the State Photo Frame here.
I also picked out a Personalized Colorado necklace. This necklace is in the shape of Colorado and I added in the heart stamp for a few extra dollars over Denver, which is where we live. You can also choose to engrave it if you want, but I skipped that. This will be perfect for my mom since she loves jewelry and it can be a reminder of us. With the necklace I’m also attaching a note that reads:
Always together, never apart
Maybe in distance, never in heart
When you’re blue, wear this near your heart
Know that it’s filled with love from afar
And filled with kisses from those who love you
So give it a squeeze and know we’re there with you.
Here’s a printable card for you to use as well!
Both items came within a week, which I consider to be pretty fast for a handmade item, and I love them both. I know they’ll be the perfect gift!
