For the armchair traveler in your family

I’ve been a big fan of StudioKMO’s city map prints for a long time. Surprise your favorite aunt and uncle with a map of their hometown or favorite vacation spot. This particular one features downtown Des Moines.

The Everywhere Box

Not only are Herb Lester Associate’s beautifully illustrated city maps like miniature works of art, but they also offer unique recommendations for the places locals love to eat, drink and shop.

La Tartine Gourmande

La Tartine Gourmande is one of the most visually beautiful food blogs I’ve ever stumbled across and this holiday season you can give Béa’s collection of recipes, cultivated from her upbringing in northeastern France, to the cook in your life. It’s like a foodie vacation through the Riveria, but way cheaper.
