If the idea of wooden art calls to mind whittled bears from tree stumps or a Ron Swanson-crafted harp, think again. Emma Fried-Cassorla, the brains behind Philly Love Notes (and ThinkFest speaker!), is selling stunning, customizable wooden maps of Philly neighborhoods. Minimalist and completely un-kitschy, the maps are perfect late V-Day gifts, or just an excuse to treat yourself.

Map sizes range from 5″ by 7″, to 8″ by 10” to 22″ by 33″ and come packaged in super-charming map wrapping paper with a pre-stamped Pilot and Captain postcard. Plus, all the money raised from the project will aid the rebranding and redesign of the Philly Love Notes website, a local mainstay that makes us feel all warm and fuzzy about our city. Neighborhoods include West Philly, Northwest Philly, South Philly, Fishtown, Center City or you can completely customize your own. Go on, show some hometown love.

The Details: $50 to $350 at Philly Love Notes Etsy Shop.
