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!
