Whether you’re 6 and starting to wonder about the world, 19 and on the verge of a big travel adventure or 80 and want to reminisce about the places you’ve visited, Maps International have an inspiring range of map gifts to evoke great travel memories, whatever your stage of life and we have been lucky enough to receive some to review.

From activity maps that teach the kids about the world to pin board, Scratch the World® maps and beautiful designs destined to grace your walls forever – the gift range at Maps International is much like the world itself – huge, colourful & eclectic!

Scratch the World® 

Available in a choice of two sizes, our iconic Scratch the World® prints are a feast for the eyes. Identify the continents, countries & cities you’ve visited and scratch them out to reveal your own personal, continually changing travel footprint. Beautifully styled, this map contains the kind of detail you only find with high quality cartography and makes a wonderful keepsake for all ages to enjoy. Select from the classic Scratch the World® map print or opt for something a little bolder with the Scratch the World® Black Edition – guaranteed to add a striking statement to your walls!

For the teens their is a UK Adrenalin Activity Adventure print and I was surprised by how many we have ticked off already, although we do have some new ideas. Coins at the ready! 


For the Kids

Ignite young imaginations with a majestic map gift from master cartographers, Maps International. Whether you have a naturally creative child, budding artist, explorer or interior design wannabee, these thoughtful gifts can be treasured long after the wrapping paper has been discarded – ensuring a gift with longevity that’s fun, educational AND beautiful.

The Scratch Off Animals of the World Print is a thoughtful, fun and educational map gift for kids that love nature and exploring the world.

Whether it’s a flamingo at the zoo, a rhino on safari or a beautiful bee in your back garden, when you spot an animal, grab a coin and scratch it off the map. See how many you can scratch off in a single year, and compare the map with your friends. The Scratch off Kids Animals of the World Print has 50 stunning illustrations of animals in nature, to observe and scratch off your list.

World Illustrated Sticker Map

The Scratch Off Kids World Movie Locations Print will take your kids on an adventure through the silver screen, as they find and scratch off their favourite movies.


There are 50 kids movies to choose from and introduce to your children, including such as Harry Potter, Lion King and Home Alone! Whether they are already crazy for films, or just starting out, we’ve got a wide selection to choose from, for every mood. You can take a trip down memory lane as well with some of these classics!

Maps are a brilliant choice for that hard to buy for person. For football fans there is a Football Fans Stadium Map, for beer lovers – a breweries map, for Gin lovers there is even one of Gin distilleries and for stargazers, there is even maps of the stars!

The kids adore their new maps and have been busy working out not only where we have travelled too, but where they want to go next!

    I really love these, I think they make a beautiful feature but I love how exciting it is to scratch off each place.

    I think I might have to get one as a last minute gift!

    These are really lovely. My daughter used to have a map puzzle and she learnt all the countries from it. It would be great to have one of these up on the wall.

    They are great aren’t they. Toby has a massive map that covers a whole wall in his bedroom and we put sticky dots on the places we’ve visited. Still lots of places to go!

    I love these maps! There’s something lovely about being able to see all the places you’ve been to. I actually bought a big scratch off map like this one for a friend last Christmas – they love it!

    Ah I absolutely love the idea of one of these! It looks so great for educating kids about geography but also so much fun. Would be amazing to have one about the film locations!

    We love having maps around the house. We have a wall-sized one in the study that we stick hearts on to show where we’ve been.

Are we nearly there yet? is a new online blog run by me, Kara Guppy, and is named as such thanks to my daughter Eliza who always asks that very question when we are less than 5 minutes up the road heading off on our adventures. You may know me from my other family blog
