Give the Gift of Ye Olde Maps Made Just For You

There's a wonderful world of unique arts, crafts and gifts to be found on Etsy.com. For those who are fans of fantasy books, where the territory is mapped out on a book's inside covers to refer to, this craftsman makes maps of most major cities - all of Texas, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles,New York, Philly, Michigan, etc… for between $10-24.  CLICK HERE to shop MAPSBURGH.


Perfect for Gramps, Dad or fans old and young whose imaginations are captured by stories like Hobbit, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, this would make a wonderful gift - and you have time to frame and wrap it. Or get creative and make it a scroll, wrap it in older ribbon, drip some sealing wax on it… you get the fun.


You can also get a map specially made of your own neighborhood, if there is something ancestral going on, for someone's 90th birthday, a wedding anniversary, a celebration of a new home bought or an old family home renovated.



It costs a pretty penny at $150 but can be an heirloom gift… You can read all about that HERE.

And for $100 he would do a custom map of anyplace you like. You provide him with landmarks and streets you definitely want included and he'll send it along. He notes that due to high volume of orders on this one, he may not be able to complete them before December 2014 holidays, but it should be good for other gift giving occasions.  See example below:



The pre-made maps of most cities should be find for delivery on time for December giving.

Maps-what a great idea! Very unique and I can't think of anyone on my gift list that wouldn't appreciate something like this.
