'Followbands' Help Wearers Remember Important Places in Their Lives

Physical keepsakes are a powerful way to hold on to memories of important events in one's life, and Followbands are a product designed specifically to satisfy that nostalgic impulse. The stylish bracelets each come with a charm that has precise locational coordinates etched into it, and consumers can customize the charm with whatever location they want to keep memorialized on their wrists.

The founders of Followband first invented the concept with the prospect of graduating from college fast approaching. As a way to remember her sorority house, Monika Dammann, one of the founders, etched the house's longitude and latitude onto a bracelet -- and so the idea was born.

Followbands are indeed good gifts for graduating students, but the company's ethos has expanded, and the bracelets are frequently worn to commemorate traveling adventures or new careers.
