Personalised Maps From Ordnance Survey: The Perfect Present

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Ordnance Survey.

Pick a spot that's significant to your lucky recipient — a favourite holiday destination, an important place in their family history, the area around their home — and choose your scale: 1:25,000 Explorer for walkers or 1:50,000 Landranger for cyclists. Know anyone into hiking, biking or the great outdoors? We can't think of a better gift than a personalised map from the experts at Ordnance Survey — they're certainly on the wish list of every map-lover in the Londonist office (that'd be all of us, then).

You can either get the map flat, to hang on the wall as a unique piece of decoration, or folded with your own photo and title on the front for getting and about with.

Much as we depend on the little digi-maps on our phones, they're next to useless when properly going exploring, relying as they do on signal and battery and with their city-oriented mapping style. What you need is a durable map with proper cartography — the very definition of an Ordnance Survey map.

Use Ordnance Survey's easy online map creator and it'll be whizzed to you in just a few days with free delivery — order now.

It's perfection. And you can't think of a better gift. Best stop Christmas right now I'd day if that's the case!

These have been around for some time.
I have a 1;25 000 called "Mole Trap Walks" - i.e. centred on the pub (the only one of that name)
