They say that home is where the heart is, and in the case of these darling AHeirloom Plyboo Cutting Boards, that can be true, literally. Amy & Bill, the husband and wife design duo behind AHeirloom, will customize the board by putting the little heart carving anywhere you’d like on the state, so you can mark your home, your birthplace, where you got married — just about anything!

I love this concept and think it’d make a great gift, though I must say, some states are better suited than others for the purpose. (I currently live in New York, but I think I’d buy the state where I’m from originally instead. Pennsylvania = the perfect shape for all your chopping needs!) I’ve featured Nevada above, since that’s where I’m headed today for the upcoming Las Vegas Market. I hope to soak in some design and spot even more cutting-edge (forgive me) trends to share here.

    Living in Colorado, I've had a state shaped cutting board for 25 years!
    Pretty clever though…

      Too true! But I also love the idea of just using it as a serving board (as shown above) for things like meats, cheeses and crackers, etc.

    I have a pretty cutting board in the shape of a chicken, (yes, that's what happens when you have hens for pets) and we hung it on the wall as art. That's what I'd do if I had a state of Georgia cutting board. Or I'm picturing a kitchen wall with those fun vintage state serving trays, framed state tea towels and corresponding state cutting boards! <a href="http://www.etsy.com/listing/79080126/hawaiian-islands-vintage-serving-tray?ref=sr_gallery_7&ga_search_submit=&ga_search_query=hawaii+tray&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_ship_to=US&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_type=vintage&ga_facet=vintage&quot; rel="nofollow"&gt <a href="http://;http://www.etsy.com/listing/79080126/hawaiian-isl…” target=”_blank”>;http://www.etsy.com/listing/79080126/hawaiian-isl
