Following the huge success of the Scratch Map (which is now back in stock), we also have the new Scratch Map Travel Edition too. This smaller version makes a great gift for globetrotters as it can easily fit in a backpack without taking up too much valuable room.

The idea behind the Scratch Map Travel Edition is that you can take it with you as you journey round the globe and scratch off where you've been on route - all you do is scratch off the gold top foil layer of the place you have visited to reveal the bright colours and geographical details underneath.

Everyone intends to keep a log or a diary when they are voyaging but in reality you generally just forget, can't be bothered or get writers block. The Scratch Map Travel Edition is the perfect way to keep a tally of where you've been, plus, flip the Scratch Map Travel Edition over and you can plot your route on the plain white map.

The Travel Edition Scratch Map also has some top tips on it. For example, did you know that Bulgarians shake their heads from side to side to mean 'yes' and nod up and down to say 'no'? Did you know that cutting down a cactus in America carries a twenty five year prison sentence? Perhaps think twice about bringing one home as a present for someone. One of the other quirks the map has are sections where you can jot down the music you listened to, the best friend you made and the top 10 highlights. In short, the Scratch Map Travel Edition is a brilliant holiday addition and keepsake.

We’ve got a Scratch Map in the office and have a heap of fun tracking our global Not Socks gift-givers.
