homesick, Dollar 29.95 Amazon

I live in New York, but given that I'm from Connecticut, I'm not a New Yorker. State pride is serious business - no matter where you live, you'll always have a unique connection to where you're from. Showing your state pride can manifest in many different ways. Maybe you're a committed fan of all of your states sports teams. Maybe you fervently hold that your hometown pizzeria has the best slice in the country - and you're willing to fight for that one.

Wherever they live, whatever way they choose to show their state pride, anyone will appreciate a state-inspired present this holiday season. It's a thoughtful, nostalgic gift that's sure to make them smile.

If you haven't done your holiday shopping yet, a state-inspired gift still has a personal feel - so they won't feel let down with a generic last-minute gift. We found plenty of great options, plus they're all from Amazon so you can get them under the tree in time for Christmas.

Most of these items are available with two-day shipping, so don't stress too hard about your last-minute shopping - just remember that the sooner you order, the better your chances of a timely arrival.
