We've been known to show respect for our states with snow globes and cheesy magnets, but these days we're searching for more tasteful ways to display our pride. Thankfully, these Etsy artists are giving us some sophisticated ways to say, "There's no place like home."

Mandy England's "Place I Love" prints ($18 each) showcase beautifully calligraphed mottos and songs within carefully drawn state outlines. A "Georgia on My Mind" version, featuring the classic Ray Charles lyrics, makes us wish we grew up below the Mason-Dixon Line.

State pride gets colorful with these bright watercolors ($20) by Muriel Blanc. Her sweet, customizable "No Place Like Home" maps make us feel close to our roots from miles away.

We love the references to tupelo honey and Rowan Oak in Tiny Owl Studios' typographical Mississippi state poster ($18). Borders are rendered with region-specific references, like "palmettos" and "Fort Sumter" for South Carolina and "Hoosiers" and "sugar cream pie" for Indiana.

Jen Hill's monogrammed merging of couples' home states ($65) proves that even Yankees and Red Sox fans can harmoniously coexist. You choose the patterns, text and special dates--and get the award for most creative wedding gift.
