Maybe I should have warned you that this list of gifts for Alabama fans would contain a lot of fun map items. So let me just tell you now, this is not going to be the last map gift item!

Personally, I just think maps are cool home décor items, especially if it’s the map of a place you love. And I am sure Alabamians will agree with me when it concerns maps of Alabama.

This is another one of the cute map-inspired gifts from Alabama. However, instead of only being decorative, this map can also be used for meal preparations.

So next time your Alabamian is preparing his or her typical Alabama meal, they will be doing so while using this cool Alabama cutting board!

It includes the main highways, cities, and of course typical Alabama things, such as cotton and dixies.

This dirt shirt is one of the best-made in Alabama gifts I could find.

First, it says Alabama dirt shirt which is a funny reminder of their favorite place on earth. Second, it’s been made from real local Alabama cotton. Last and foremost, its color is derived from real Alabama dirt.

Yes, I am not kidding. If you thought the color of the shirt looked like Alabama soil, it’s because it is Alabama soil.

Alabama dirt has been used to color the cotton!

Can a gift get any more local Alabama than this? I think not.

Of course, if you don’t like the design of the shirt, there is plenty of Alabama-inspired clothing on Etsy you could choose from.

#14 Alabama travel mug

Cute keychain

This super sweet keychain is one of the best Alabama gifts to give to someone you care about a lot and who’s leaving the state.  

The keychain is small enough to fit in any luggage, but the simple words: “I love you more than the miles between us” and the Alabama hanger show them how much you care and how the distance will not affect your relationship. It doesn’t need to be given to a lover. You could also give it to a son or daughter who is leaving for travel or college.

#20 Made in Alabama gifts: peanuts
