CPS (Cheese Positioning System)

There's something about indulging in a fancy fromage spread that feels a bit…metropolitan. Even if you're not looking out over your favorite skyline as you enjoy a creamy camembert, you can celebrate the finer things in life—and in your city—with these handmade cheese boards. Designed by Nina Kulick and made from versatile bamboo, each board features a map showcasing famous streets, must-see buildings, and other iconic locations. They're also a great way to present a fruit and veggie tray or other finger foods. Flip the map side over, and you've got a durable cutting board. Available in seven cities, they make a thoughtful gift for someone who's full of hometown (or new town pride). Made in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Laser etched in Los Gatos, California.

“Each day at work is unique... I can't imagine doing anything else!”

"Nina Kulick has traveled her whole life, thanks to family vacations that started when she was just a kid. From a very young age, her parents took her and her brother to visit extended family in India. On each trip, they'd explore a different city, and she remembers seeing many exciting sights along the way. Those trips sparked a passion for exploration and adventure in Nina, who says that drawing maps was the natural progression of her love of travel.

Those drawings became part of Nina's daily life in 2005, when she and her husband learned that they were expecting their first child. Realizing she didn't want to leave her baby with a caregiver while she worked long hours at her job doing scientific research, Nina embarked on a new adventure: becoming a professional artist.

""Starting my own business gave me the flexibility to spend more time with my newborn and also fulfill my love of creating art,"" says Nina. ""Years later, I am so fortunate to be able to make a career out of doing something that I love. Each day at work is unique, which can be both challenging and rewarding--but I can't imagine doing anything else! I am most inspired by the everyday things around me.""

When not in the studio, Nina looks to find inspiration in the unexpected all around her. She takes ""mini-explorations"" with her dog, Kricket, after they walk her daughter to school each morning. Even in her neighborhood, ""there's always something new to discover,"" she says. But not all of her exploration takes place close to home. Now that she's a mom, she continues to travel and hopes to give her daughter an experience similar to the one she had herself as a child. After all, for Nina, adventures are all part of a day's work.
