State of Rest

Whether you've taken the morning commute or the path to adventure, sharing the road or going it alone, these pillows will be a welcoming reminder that home is where the heart is. These handmade, geographic pillow pairs are squeezable depictions of your two favorite places. US state silhouettes are created in stylish colors on a white background, customized with a little heart stitched over your choice of city. The two pillows can represent the individual birthplaces of a couple, or the location of your home and favorite vacation spot. Or give one to a college-bound child as a reminder of home, as you keep one that marks this new place in their life. Handmade by Christin Morgan in Texas.

    Bought a Michigan pillow for my husband. We currently live in Pittsburgh and he loves anything that reminds him of "home." His eyes lit up when he opened his birthday gift. Perfection.

      Comments about CUSTOM STATE PILLOWS:

      Buying these pillows was a fun treasure to have when my partner and I moved long-distance. We each have a pillow from where the other is living with a heart over the city. It's been fun to collect new states as we have moved around. We look forward to when we will get to move back together and have all of our pillows in a collection.

      Just thought it would be bigger for the price. Since I was imagining the pillow to be something a little more functional versus decorative, I was slightly bummed.

            I love my state pillow. My husband and I met in Ohio but we'll probably never live there again so I love this as a decoration to remember where we met. It's a great size and I get a lot of compliments on it. I will definitely be buying more from this site since I can attest to the amazing quality.

            Service and delivery comments:

            It took a little while to make but I thought that was reasonable since it was custom made.

            Comments about CUSTOM STATE PILLOWS:

            Randomly stumbled upon this pillow set while Christmas shopping for my boyfriend. He always tells me how much he misses Brooklyn and it was then that I knew this was the perfect present for him. It came in the color that matched his room and it delivered to my house fairly quickly which made it an even better buy. I love that it's customizable and the colors are so pretty. The only two things I didn't like about it were that the fabric is kind of irritating to my face and that I wish it were a little more fluffy to make up for the fabric. As a decorative piece in a room, it is perfect, but for actual nap times, get another pillow.

              A great gift for my mom; she loves her city and state. A very unique decorative piece. A little expensive though probably appropriate for a hand-made gift.

              We love that Christine Morgan's handmade State Pillows also let you show a little love to your favorite city. Would you hold your home state tight or display it proudly with these plush pillows?

              Pillows should be all black. Don't like the heart over the state even though it is there to show the capitol, it doesnt represent the city I live in.

              Interesting idea, but they don't seem remotely practical or use-able. I'm trying to visualize how I would place these on furniture and I just can't see it...

              The only thing that I wondered is if you could get the heart in the general locale of your city/town.

              Now we are really being sent down river. These are infantile or at best pubescent. I've bought quite a bit from Uncommon Goods over the last several years, but if I had seen the tables and pillows I would have closed the window.

              These are great for those of us that don't live on our home states (or have moved on from cities/states we love).
