This is one of my favourites and, I have to admit, I have one of these hanging on my office wall! The Landmass Scratch Off World Map is beautifully designed with a twist. You can use a coin or similar object to scratch away the countries or places that you have been, revealing a new colour beneath. The areas turn from black to vibrant colours as you discover new places along your travels.
For the avid traveller, this makes the perfect gift! It is compact, light and travel related; without being hard to store and can even go along on every trip. Each country has its own colour hidden beneath the black exterior. Every scratch is a new surprise!
At the end, should the traveller finish scratching their way around the globe, there will be a beautiful world map full of happy memories to hang on a wall in the home. It may even push them to book a spur of the moment holiday to somewhere not yet discovered.
Why not encourage the traveller to visit a place like Antarctica just to find out what the colour is below? This could be your chance to inspire someone you love to find a new and exotic location to visit.
