The What We Covet Holiday Gift Guide, Part 8 The Traveler

Ward Maps in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is a tiny place--the store is no larger than two dorm rooms stuck together--but it's full of fascinating cartographic artifacts, including a great selection of vintage maps depicting locations across the United States and around the world. One of their coolest products, in my opinion, is their messenger bag:

These bags are fully customizable: you can choose any map from the Ward collection and have it printed on the bag. Perhaps you want to buy one with the recipient's favorite city on the front, or maybe you want to buy one with a map of their hometown, the better to remind them that they have a place to which they can return after a long business trip. Either way, this makes for a functional and personalized gift for the traveler in your life!
