For everyone from students to travelers, globes make great gifts. Students can learn about the world they live in and dream about the places they want to go. Travelers can point to places they have been to while sharing stories of their adventures. At the same time, they will find inspiration for future trips to far off lands they have yet to visit.
California artist, Wendy Gold, puts a new twist on globe art. Gold’s push pin globes feature the traditional depictions of countries and cities and bodies of water. But they also come with personalized legends which she hand-collages onto each one. The twelve-inch globes are eco-friendly, crafted from post-consumer reclaimed fiber, and handmade in the USA. As a result of Gold’s handmade process, no two globes are alike. Therefore, this makes for an extra special and unique gift.
Globes for Graduates
Congratulate the recent graduate in your life with a push pin globe with a personalized legend. As they move on from the dorm room to the boardroom, the new grad’s globe will symbolize the figurative and literal adventures they are about to embark on. And the personalized legend will provide your new graduate with inspiration and motivation to get out and see the world. Quotes such as “Wherever you go, go with all your heart”, or, “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail”, emblazoned across a globe are thoughtful ways to acknowledge their hard work and dedication to achieving this milestone.
Globes for Travelers
What better way to commemorate a friend or family member’s recent travels than with a globe with a personalized legend? Whether it was a cross-country drive or backpacking through Europe, a globe featuring quotes like “I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world” and “Traveling - it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller” are thoughtful ways to celebrate someone else’s adventures. Also, the legend can include the dates of their trip, the locations they visited, and also the names of each traveler.
Each Push Pin Globe is mounted on an axis stand. This gives it a more modern style and a decorative look. The handmade hardwood bases are available in seven different finishes, which include four painted (gold, white, brown, and black), and three stained (maple, ebony, and dark walnut). Each globe spins fully around on its axis. This allows for ease of viewing and a more interactive experience.
Push Pin Travel Kit
Travel Kits are included with each Push Pin Globe. In each kit there are 100 push pins, red string, 50 adhesive flags, and a custom tool for inserting pins. With the push pins, you can mark each destination you have reached, as well future locations you are planning to visit. The red string lets you chart each trip. If your journey has multiple stops, you can mark and connect each leg of the trip with the pins and string. The adhesive flags allow you to mark each destination with a customized note.
