One thing I’ve noticed about living in Iowa is just how PROUD people are to come from this State! So I have trawled through Amazon punching in lots of different keywords to bring you my favourite finds for the Ultimate Iowa Gift Guide! If you’re looking for a last minute Iowa themed gift, I think I’ve got you covered 🙂

Iowa Gift Guide
For the ‘Ugly Sweater’ Christmas Party & Christmas Gifts
Whether it’s a work Christmas party or a family gathering, why not get in the spirit with an ‘Ugly T-Shirt’?!
Iowa Teacher Gifts
I work in a school and we’ll have days where we wear ‘inspirational’ tshirts etc, so I scanned Amazon for some cool Iowa themed teacher shirts! Here’s what I found!
Iowa Teacher Shirt Vintage Home State Shirt Gift Women
Iowa Hawkeyes Perfect Teacher Black Women’s Tee – Official Sports Apparel
Iowa Teacher Shirt Arrow Heart Home State Gift Women
Iowa Hawkeyes Black Tee Stacked Love
For the proud Iowan
Iowa Mom Shirt (Slightly different from image)
(Available in different sizes and colours)
When I saw the sign language T-Shirt I HAD to include it! I used to work in a special needs school in the UK and knew British finger spell and basic Makaton sign language. Schools often have an option to learn a 2nd language such as Spanish or French but sign language often gets forgotten about!
As for the ‘Small Town Girl’ T-Shirt…I can guarantee you just ‘sung’ that T-Shirt when you saw it…if that’s not a reason to buy it, I don’t know what is!!
For the Home
As someone that lives away from home, I thought the candle was a cute idea! The lid says: ‘A Little Love From Home’, which I think would make a great gift for a family member or a friend that lives out of the State 🙂
For The Drinkers
The Moscow Mule drink seems to be rather popular at the moment! If you know someone that likes to drink them, why not buy them a couple of Iowa themed copper mugs!
For the Sports Fan
NCAA Iowa State Cyclones Reverse-A-Pal Toy (Iowa Hawkeyes available too!)
When it comes to football, people in Iowa either seem to be a Hawkeyes fan or an Iowa State fan! I thought the gnome was cute and if you’re after a fun gift for a younger football fan, you can get a cuddly version of each of the mascots which folds up into a football!
For the Book Worm
Books By Iowa Author ‘Bill Bryson’
I have tons of ‘coffee table’ books about travelling, I love flicking through them! If you are after day trip ideas, ‘Iowa Off The Beaten Path’ lists cool things to do in hundreds of towns! ‘Santa Is Coming To Iowa’ is great to help children get excited for Christmas! Even little kids know that they live in Iowa so will think it’s cool!
