My Scratch Map from I Want One Of Those

Travellers world map wall art

Record your travels

Maps are often used as a form of wall decoration in homes, but here’s a novel way of personalising your map.

Designed to record the places you’ve visited around the world, My Scratch Map can literally be scratched off to show where you’ve been.

The top layer of the map is finished off in gold foil, which looks fine as it is. But if you want to mark where you’ve been, just gently scratch off the surface (aka lottery scratchcard style, with the edge of a coin) and nice details underneath will be revealed.

Fun to use yourself at home, the scratchable world map will also make a good gift for anyone into travel and become a talking point on the wall.

The My Scratch Map costs £14.99 and can be bought from I Want One Of Those.

Heart art

This is a really nice idea.

This map heart art is produced on a bespoke basis – you choose the location of your choice, the designer finds an appropriate area in their vintage map collection and produces the art for you.

The map is cut into the shape of a heart, given a glossy finish and mounted, before being popped into a handmade frame. If you don’t want the frame, it’s also available unframed.

If you’re looking for an unusual Valentine’s Day present, then there’s still time to order one of these!

You’ll find all the details on Not On The High Street.
