Make Your Own Happy Maps + Giveaway

Happy MapsI love a wall full of photos and decor in a home. There’s just something personal about it that lets me know more about a person. Now that we’ve moved into a new home, I decided to redo my personal space. My favorite piece that everyone seems to adore and want to know about is my Happy Map.

Happy Maps make high quality personalized love maps. I’m sure you’re wondering what that means so let me fill you in. Happy Maps lets you choose a specific location like a city you fell in love or a certain place in the world that inspires you. Though it is popular to choose a theme like “where we met” and “where we married,” you can go with any theme you like. Once you’ve made your decision, you choose your color, subtitle, tagline, layout, and size. From there Happy Maps creates a unique personalized gift with what ever theme you went with. Not only do they print in the USA but they also use museum quality matte paper with high-quality inks.

Creating my Map

I thought Happy Maps were so unique and personalized that I wanted to try it out for myself. Happy Maps created an “Our Firsts” poster for us. Or at least that’s what I’m calling it. I thought long and hard about a location to use and finally decided on one in my head. Without telling my husband which city, I asked him what he would choose. When he said the same answer, I knew that was the one.

Happy MapsWe chose Chandler, Arizona. I know, you’re probably surprised I didn’t say Gilbert. We decided was the best fit because that’s where our first everything happened. We went on our first date at a teppanyaki restaurant in Chandler. We first lived together in Chandler. We had our first dog together in Chandler. We first became pregnant and found out in Chandler. Chandler was our home of firsts.

When my happy map arrived, it came in a stylish tube that kept is really safe. I opened up and fell in love with the quality of the print. It looked so great! After moving I finally found a frame for it and hung it up for all to see. We had a dinner party 2 weeks ago and almost everyone was asking me all about it. Not only is a unique item to hang, it looks so stylish.

    What a beautiful piece to be able to hang in your home. Such a simple, yet lovely idea. I would love to have a bunch of these around the house, and it makes for a really nice gift too.

    I am born and raised in AZ and lived in Tempe, Gilbert, Chandler and Ahwatukee. I think these maps are really cool and I want to get one from AZ now that I have relocated to Illinois.

    This is the first time I heard about the happy map and I love the idea. I would love to make one, too. Nice giveaway.

    It will be nice to look at it every day and remember everything that happened in that place in the map. It’s really a cool and lovely idea to have one hanging on the wall 🙂

    This is such a fun gift for a special someone. I love the idea of using this to highlight where people met each other. Or where they got marries. I love this map!

    This is such a cute idea. My husband and I come from two different states and then actually met in a third state so this would be perfect for our story.

    This would be such an amazing wedding present to give someone. I have never seen these before.

    I think this is a great idea. I would love to have one of these. I know a few people I’d gift these too.

    This is the sweetest idea! My husband and I have lots of sentimental things on our walls, and could see a few maps fittining beautifully. There are a couple of trips we’ve taken together that would be fun to highlight. x

    I love Chandler – my daughter and her family just moved from there, so I am well acquainted with it. I really like the idea of happy maps, too. For someone like me who has moved many times, a happy map for each place could be a great way to remember the best of each.

    This is a cool idea. I know that I would choose Colorado as my happy spot. Not sure that my husband would be on the same page, but he might. 🙂

    This is a unique gift idea and I like it. I immediately started thinking about what city I should select. This would also be nice for a birthday using your birth city.

    Mine would be about the place where I found some serious healing 🙂
