Let’s start this list with the number one gift for people who love the United States; a trip to the US!

It doesn’t even matter which state you take them to, as long as it’s in the US.

So check out Skyscanner and find a flight to a city the recipient loves.

Or head over to Viator and find out which tours they offer in the US.

And lastly, if you want to play it safe, go for the Global Experiences Gift card. It’s the Viator gift card that allows the recipient to pick a tour themselves.

This is one of the best American-themed gifts for people who love exploring every side of the US.

They can keep track of all the places they have visited on this mug!

So with every coffee, they can have a look at all the destinations they still want to visit.

There are two different options to go for.

One is a mug of the major US national parks, which is a great gift for nature lovers. The other option is a mug with the map of the US and all the states.

Oh and if you thought the colors would just fade away once you put them in the dishwasher. That’s not the case.

The ink will set by placing the mugs in the oven after coloring them. That way, the recipient can always update the mug when they’ve visited a new state or national park.

This is one of my favorite American-themed gifts! A tote bag with a map of the United States. But what I love about it, is the fact that you can color in the states you have visited so far.

And I am 100% sure that people who love the US will love this bag too. There’s something about scratching and ticking off places you have visited, which is why most travelers love scratch maps so much.

However, if you would rather go for a different type of tote bag, check out Zazzle where you can find over 15,000 different American-themed tote bags.

Í already shared quite a few map-related American gifts, but of course, I also had to include the regular scratch-off map.

It’s probably the most popular map among travelers, so if you are looking for the best America gifts for someone’s home, the scratch-off map of the US is perfect.

You can choose from two options.

The first one on Amazon is the cheapest option and provides a colorful map once all the states have been scratched off. The second option on Uncommon Goods will show beautiful photographs of the states once they’re scratched off.
