The Mayflower was an English ship that famously transported the first English Puritans, known today as the Pilgrims, from Plymouth, England to the New World in 1620.
We took some liberties with this 3-D ship, and gave it a red narrow hull and commanding masts in ivory, yellow, blue and green.
Gift this card to a sailor, an explorer, a historian, a Pilgrim, Puritan or President, for a birthday, a new beginning, an adventure.

“Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by, you can spend the night forever
And you know that she’s half-crazy but that’s why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges that come all the way from China.”
