A custom-made map is the present to give this Christmas

Sales of Ordnance Survey’s customised maps have more than doubled this year on the run up to Christmas making it a very popular stocking filler.

The customised maps, where customers go online to choose the centre point, the title and upload their own cover image are proving popular gifts for lovers of the great outdoors, Mums and Dads. Sales are up 54% on the same period last year, perhaps reflecting a desire to give a more personal considered present.

Nick Giles, Managing Director of Ordnance Survey Leisure said:

‘We are seeing a large number of orders for customised maps both as Christmas presents for Mums and Dads and as momentos for visits, activities and trips. It looks like a customised map will be a very popular Christmas present and we hope that the recipients will be delighted when they open their very own map on Christmas morning!’

Nick continued

“We’ve made the process really simple; find your location, choose the map you prefer and personalise it, we even deliver it to you for free in a matter of days after it has been individually quality checked.”

The last ordering date for delivery before Christmas this year is Thursday 19 December, so there is still time to place an order for a customised present for someone special in your life.

Ordnance Survey custom-made maps are available as either an OS Landranger Map with a pink cover at 1:50 000 scale or OS Explorer Map with an orange cover at 1:25 000 scale, and then simply select your preference between a folded or a flat map (ideal for framing) for £16.99, or for £25.99 you can also include a handy map case and a compass.
