Iíve been seeing my fellow Bostonians rocking Boston Strong memorabilia, and I love it. Back at Disney World, all cast members had their names and hometowns on their pin badges. People find meaning in identifying with a place of origin, and we all certainly identify with Boston here.
With the Boston Marathon coming up, if youíre looking for more ways to celebrate your city in addition to rocking a sweet Boston Strong t-shirt, here are four items that will turn heads at home and out.
Holding a Boston Strong party?
Tin Parade Patriotic Table Banner ($39) -- Made of fabric, not paper, this table banner is a distinct alternative to traditional tablecloths and runners. Since itís reusable, you can decorate for the 4th of July or the Boston Marathon and beckon a good time year after year.
Vestiges Boston Snow Globe Towel ($15) -- Letís bring back the old 1930ís American tradition of collecting souvenir textiles of visited places and landmarks. Adorn your kitchen with this cheerful collectible towel, featuring some of the most memorable parts of Boston.
Heading out to cheer on the Marathon?
Aminimal Studio Urban Gridded Jewelry, Boston ($40) -- Keep your special city close to your heart with a delicate map pendant or pair of earrings. Stainless steel with an acid etched design, theyíre intricate, yet minimalist and definitely a lightweight, yet strong way to pay homage to Boston.
CHART Metalworks Customizable Pewter Necklace ($65) -- The proximity to water has always been a part of Bostonís fame: lobsters, the historical Boston Tea Party, you name it! Keep a piece of Boston with you with a customizable necklace of a nautical map that charts both the depths of water and the heights of land.
