Map Quest

I'm not sure if Miss South Carolina had anything to do with this new trend but I have been seeing a lot of map themed gifts popping up lately. My favorite so far is the Zip Code Puzzle from Firebox. They are unique map-style jigsaws centered on a place of your choice. You send the company the house number, street name and zip code of the area you'd like at the center of your puzzle and they send you a personalized puzzle. Or I suppose you could just opt for one of the Upton inspired shirts like this one or this one with her now infamous speech: “I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some people out there in our nation don’t have maps, and, uh, I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq everywhere like, such as and I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., er, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our children.”
