new favorite wedding gift {to give}

I officially have a new favorite wedding gift to give.  It’s unique, personal, affordable, and useful.  I am in love with the charming state shaped cutting boards created by A.Heirloom.  The idea was born when the creators were planning their own wedding and wanted to pay homage to their home states.  Adorable, right?   And for only $48.00 it’s a lovely option for nearly any occasion.  Obsessed.

Yes, this looks like a regular rectangle yet in fact it is the state of Wyoming.  Duh! my husband says.  What a boring looking state, I mumbled.  The heart represents Cody (anyone up for a rodeo?) and the date is the couple’s wedding date.  

I love gifts that can stand alone or serve as the main event for a themed present depending on one’s budget.  An awesome chef’s knife would make a great complement or a colorful set of cheese knives (also seen here).

What state would you get?  I am partial to Oregon, of course, while Husband votes for Alaska.  Battle of the wild west!
