state pairings by jhill design

Valentine’s Day is slowly creeping up on us and I love seeing all the creative ways that artists address the need for clever gifts. These personalized monogram prints from JHill Design are a great way to give your special someone (or another couple) a thoughtful gift. Each 8×10 print (available framed or unframed) comes with each of the couple’s home states (or favorite states if sports/schools are a preference) filled in with one of Jen’s 75 pattern designs. The states are combined with a custom line of text, a special date or the couple’s monogram. This would be such a great idea for the upcoming holiday, a housewarming gift, weddings or engagements. If you’re on the hunt for a gift idea, click here to check out JHill Design’s custom prints and order online. xo, grace

    Love this. Any creative ideas for how to do the monogram for couples with different last names? I don’t know the etiquette.

  2. Jennifer says:

    These are so pretty! I love how she mixes the print of the state with the lighter print in the background.

  3. cyndi says:

    Any luck for couples from different countries?

  8. Thank you for introducing these to me. I love them. So great.

  9. These are fantastic! I first discovered Jennifer’s work when you posted about her prints right before Valentine’s Day a couple of years ago. (I was too excited about our prints that I never even made it to Valentine’s Day!) The new pairings are a perfect idea- thank you so much for sharing!
