For those who have been following along with Jennifer Garner’s regular aventures in the kitchen, you know it’s only a matter of time before she nabs her own cooking show on Food Network. 

And through these cooking videos, posted to her Instagram, followers have gotten to see what kitchen tools Garner swears by — and one of her favorite cutting boards makes for the perfect housewarming gift for someone who recently moved states.

Garner has a bamboo cutting board in the shape of her home state of West Virgnia. Left Coast on Etsy specializes in these state-shaped cutting boards that can be engraved with initials or with a heart or house in the exact town of your choosing.

So when Garner says “this is where I’m from,” in her above maple butter how-to video, she could actually point to a little engraved heart if she chose to do so.

You can check out the entire catalog of state cutting boards over on the Left Coast Etsy page.

To go along with your cutting board gift, you may also want to include personalized cheese knives to turn this into a charcuterie set. Etsy seller Campcosie sells a set of four knives that can be engraved with initials or custom images — either all knives with the same engraving, or unique engravings on each.

To match the state theme you could ask for coordinates of a childhood home, a street address, or house numbers. 

Then, to top it all off, whip up a batch of Garner’s maple butter to drizzle on some crackers to complete your charcuterie board gift. And try not to keep the whole thing for yourself.
