1. It's practical

Whether it's a clearly labelled world map with accurately proportioned landmasses, or a wall map of your home city complete with cycle routes, a map always has a practical purpose.


Those who are scientifically minded appreciate the visualisation of data, while fact lovers will enjoy checking exactly which state is next to which, and the names of the mountain ranges. The recipient of a map is guaranteed to improve their score at the pub quiz!




2. it's romantic

Travel memories are often among the best we have. A magnetic map of the world allows you to put magnetic pins in the countries you've visited, attach postcards or momentos to favourite cities, or mark out places of sentimental significance. 

It also makes a lovely gift for those whose loved ones are currently embarking on adventures. Perhaps you know someone with a child off a gap year, a friend who is taking trip around the world or a partner who travels for work? A world map allows others to stay one step closer to them by following their journey from the comfort of their own home.
