When Jess came to me looking for a wedding gift for her college roommate and teammate, Kate, I could just tell their friendship was special. She had mentioned that herself and a few other friends were looking to have something created for Kate's new home. They had a special location in mind and was hoping I could help bring their idea to life!
What Near & Dear design did you purchase?
Personalized Map of Washington, DC
Why was this map the perfect gift?
This map is so special because it represents an incredibly unique experience that my roommates and I were all able to share together.
When I was in college I played field hockey and lived with 5 of my teammates in a house a few blocks away from campus. Of course, through sharing everything from living spaces to locker rooms, to hotel rooms, the 6 of us became great friends.
Our roommate Kate was the first of our group to get married. My roommates and I wanted to get her something for her new home to remind her of all of our time spent together in college, so we ordered a personalized map of Washington, DC with a heart placed over the area where we lived and played field hockey. At the bottom of the map we had the coordinates of the location of our field hockey field--one of the places we all spent the most time together.
Thank you Jess for sharing the story of your friendship with us and congratulations to Kate on her new marriage and new home!
