Sure, you could get flowers, a generic piece of sparkly jewelry, and an unexciting box of mass produced chocolates, but something tells me that finding the perfect gift your unique Maine girlfriend is a little more challenging than that. If she loves you then she'll love anything you get her, but why not really impress her with something custom and/or made in her home state of Maine?

I've received two of five of these items as gifts for previous occasions and I can vouch that they are some of the best gifts I've ever received.

Jewelry Lover

Custom Map Necklace or Bracelet

This special keepsake is totally custom and perfect for the nautical girl in your life. Center the map on your favorite city in Maine or maybe the place you had your first date.

Maine Made Seabag

I received this bag as a birthday gift and I'm in love. Seabags are made in Maine from recycled sailboat sails.

Dog Lover

Custom Oil Painting of Her Dog

Does your girl have a pup who you're pretty sure she loves a little more than you? Great! Get her a custom painted portrait of her four-legged pal. Etsy is loaded with artists who can create a custom portrait for you on your budget.

All Natural Maine Made Bath and Body Products

I received this sugar scrub for Christmas and I just ordered two more tubs of it because I'm obsessed. It smells incredible and I've never found a product that leaves my skin so smooth and hydrated. Plus, it's all natural and made by hand in Richmond, Maine.
