Gift Guide to Florida Posted by: Dan | 0 Comments
If this country is a melting pot, the Sunshine State is like the low flame keeping it warm enough for that mixture meld. It’s so diverse, we can hardly put a finger on what it even means to be from Florida. The word that comes to mind when we think of Florida is “surreal” — the state has Disney World, space shuttle launches, Miami, Nascar, beaches, a monopoly on oranges, and all of the keys … to the most fun you can have in the U.S.A.
Like it or not, the allure of Florida cannot be denied. We’ll all find ourselves there sooner or later. And why not? The state is also a breeding ground for creativity and craftsmanship, and we can prove it with these high-quality products. If you’re looking to support the Sunshine State this holiday season, keep reading for our gift guide to Florida for products made in and inspired by the state.
1. Craft Beer shirt, $18
Correct that misunderstanding about craft beer drinking. It is a hobby just like any other, it happens to involve a little more pacing than, say, knitting. It’s not alcoholism, mom. We swear. Poke fun at yourself and your hobbies with this smart shirt made in Tampa. Available in men’s and women’s cuts.
2. State Shape Necklaces, $55
Florida has maybe the most recognizable state shape in the country, and turns out, it looks pretty on a necklace. It’s an elegant way to show your state pride.
