Star Maps | Review


Recently I was looking for a unique gift that I could get Justin for father's day.
Men are really hard to shop for. 

I mean I could get him another tool that will sit in the garage until he remembers that he has it but I wanted something different, something that was unique to our family.  

I found what I was looking for when I was contacted by an artist at Modern Map Art, asking if I would like a personalized star map. 

I got to choose a date, time, and location that was special to us and the artist would create what the stars looked like in the sky at that moment. I debated for awhile on which date to choose - when we first met, our first date, when we got married, and then it hit me: I have never seen Justin light up as when he held our son for the first time. 

One proud papa. 

The artist worked with me on exactly what I had in mind. I was able to choose from different types (poster, framed poster, canvas), different sizes, fonts, border, and color schemes.  You get to add the special date, times, place, and even a special saying to your star map. 

After finalizing all the details, Modern Map Art mailed my star map carefully packaged in a mailer tube. It was wrapped in tissue paper and packed with paper on either end to insure my precious gift arrived in great condition.

Not going to lie - when I unrolled my star map, I did shed a few tears.  It is a beautiful piece of artwork on heavy matte paper that can be framed or hung just like it is. I went with a dark frame to match the rest of my pictures.  

So what did Justin think of his early Father's Day gift?  "I think it's awesome. I'll look at it and think of the night I recieved the greatest gift." 

Modern Map Art offers several different items if for some reason star maps aren't for you (I mean c'mon you know they are awesome!).   From pillows to state map art to skyline art to cell phone cases, you can find unique and amazing gifts for everyone.  

Next to buy:  this awesome scratch off travel map for JJ

Again, thank you to Modern Map Art for sending me this beautiful piece of art (which is now my favorite). 

*Please note that this item was gifted to me from Modern Map Art for my honest review and opinion. All views are my own and completely honest.  I do love this item and will be purchasing more for myself and loved ones.
