MAP INSPIRED GIFTS

Maps maps maps….I love maps….I mean seriously love maps. One of my earliest memories is sitting with my Dad and looking at maps of the world – he had some amazing books and I loved sitting looking at those books. My Dad passed away in his early 50’s and never really travelled – I think he found my constant travelling a bit amazing and enjoyed hearing about my adventures. My love of maps started at a young age and I love buying interesting map related merchandise….so this post is about my favourite map products!! If you are after some map inspired gifts then this post is for you!

Map bags

I can’t resist a map bag!!

Airportag do some great bags with quotes, airport codes etc on them – this one is my personal favourite! If click on the picture it will take you to the Airportag site which has lots of amazing map products!

Great tote bag

A scratch off map!

I love my scratch off map. My daughter bought it for me at Christmas. I am saving it until we get to Australia to do the scratching lol!! Tell me a traveller who won’t enjoy scratching off the places they have been!! My map is produced by Luckies of London who sell a range of scratch maps.

A travel journal

The one I have is Luckies of London travelogue. It includes a journal to plan trips and 8 miniature scratch maps (gotta love those scratch maps!!!) There is room in the folder to store tickets and paper memorabilia too. A great way to record a trip of a lifetime!


A personalised map of the world

My husband knows me so well and this year for my birthday I received this totally awesome map of the world. It is personalised and comes with pins so that you can record your visits (mine has solo travel, travel with my husband, travel with my daughter, UNESCO World Heritage sites,  and family travel pins on it at the moment) Made me realise just how little of the world I have actually seen. The Far East is clearly missing A LOT of pins so I aim to rectify that soon!!

 

Apparently I sent him the link for it a while before he ordered it lol!! www.ijustloveit.co.uk
