Sometimes, deciding what to gift people, even the people we love and care about the most, can just be difficult. Especially people who are notoriously hard to buy for, whether they already have everything they want, just don't really like things or refuse to drop a hint. Luckily, there are gift options that are unique, sentimental, personal and right for just about anybody.

Grafomap offers all those things and more. Through the site, you'll be able to create a gorgeously designed, highly customizable map decor of anywhere in the world. Whether you want to remember a beloved vacation retreat, the spot you met the love of your life or your hometown, Grafomap understands that places are more than just that. They're our memories, our relationships and the experiences who make us who we are.

So how does it work?

All the creating takes place on Grafomap's super simple and user-friendly editor page. First, you type in the address of the location you want to feature. It can be as broad as a continent or as specific as a street corner — zoom in or out and pan around to determine exactly the area you want your map to cover.

You can then choose from nine map themes. Grafomap's bestseller is the "minimal" theme, which features a classic font and uses only black, white and gray. Other options include "modern," which is a bold, eye-catching red and tan option, and "wheatpaste," which will distinguish elements like parks, water and streets with different colors.

From there, you can customize the label on your map. The default text will be the location you've chosen, but you have the option to create your own label for more personalization. You could have it say something like "the best place on Earth" or "home is where the heart is."

Finally, you'll pick the type of print you want. There are two sizes to choose from — 18 inches by 24 inches and 24 inches by 36 inches — and each size is available in three different layouts. The most basic option is the paper layout, which starts at $49.

Right now, you can use code DEAL to receive one map for free with your purchase of any two. Whether you know three people who you think a Grafomap would be perfect for, or want to keep the third one for yourself (trust me, we won't blame you), it's a deal that's hard to pass up.

Just looking for one map? No worries, you can also take 20% off sitewide with code 20OFF. Grafomap makes it super simple to treasure the places that are so important to us. And to do so through a piece of art that's truly one of a kind? That's something sure to warm anyone's heart this holiday season.
