A site that offers gifts with Iowa connections. Iowa shaped
cutting boards, cookie cutters, apple items (Did you know the red
delicious apple originated in Iowa?), a toddler travel pack featuring
pigs (Iowa is known for its production of pigs -- and this cuddly pig
package is too cute to miss.), beautiful baby gifts, kitchen items,
golf items (Iowa has the most golf courses per capita than any other
USA state.), children's books (An autographed copy of Barn Raising by Craig Brown is a special offering-- the story is set in Kalona Iowa's Amish community.), and other too good to miss gifts.
