If you’re more of the hands-on type, they also offer sev­eral DIY kit ver­sions of their quilts. Now you can stitch your own ver­sion of their NYC, world, and USA map quilts.

And, of course, they still have their super pop­u­lar baby map quilts. Pic­tured above is the Boston Baby Quilt, avail­able for $145. If some­one close is expect­ing a new baby, I can’t image a more per­fect gift!

Update: Due to dam­age caused by Hur­ri­cane Sandy, Hap­tic Labs has informed us that orders will take longer than usual to ful­fill until their water­front stu­dio in Brook­lyn can be repaired. Our hearts are with you!

    I love it! This is so gor­geous! I always wanted to make a world map blan­ket for our inter­na­tional trav­el­ing baby but never got to make it. But see­ing these super nice pic­tures makes me feel like think­ing about it again. Thanks!
