    I have bought OS Getamap for my husband. I think you should provide something that looks a bit like a certificate that you can email to people to print off when they have bought this as a gift so that I have something physical to give.

      Hi again

      Just checked with our OS getamap team and they confirmed that when you buy OS getamap as a gift you can either have the voucher emailed to the recipient, or you can email it to yourself and print it off, so that you can give the voucher as a physical gift. The link for that is here: http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/shop/gift-vouchers/getamap-12-month-gift-voucher.html

      If you had any issues when buying your gift and didn’t get a voucher emailed to you, please contact our Customer Services team on 08456 050505 and they’ll be able to help you out.

      Thanks, Gemma
