From the vagabond voyager to the lustrous wanderer, our selection of Scratch Map® posters make epic travel gifts for all explorers. Roam through our top ten travel destinations as you scratch back the foil, tracking your travels in true Luckies style.

10. France

Whatever happened to good old family holidays in the South of France? Go somewhere you can confidently say hello in the native tongue, uncover your scratch map and soak up the rays in Cannes. The cast of Made in Chelsea love it there and we’re sure you will too.

9. Thailand

If for your gap yaa you’re visiting Southeast Asia, then Thailand’s Full Moon party in Koh Phangan is not to be missed. Our Scratch Map® posters make perfect graduation and travel gifts for the sun-seeking student who just scraped a 2.1 because they were too busy buying neon face paint and headbands #YOLO

8. Finland

In at number three is Finland, home of Lapland and guaranteed to add a bit of Northern diversity when uncovering your Scratch Map® poster. Enjoy roaming around during their winter and make like a local by jumping from sauna to snow.

7. Antarctica

The only reason Antarctica is not in the top 5 of travel destinations on your Scratch Map® poster is simply because we’re not sure how you get there. Is there an airport? Must you only travel by ship, a very long time ago? Explore these big questions on your visit, and good luck!

6 Cuba

The cultural island of Cuba offers cigars, the Caribbean and Che Guevara. If you don’t know who that last one is then book your flight now. Actually, finish this blog, explore our travel gifts, check your passport isn’t out of date and then book it. Sorry, we’re being bossy.

5. Russia

Take the lead on the Scratch Map® poster race by uncovering the mammoth monster nation of Russia. Bigger than most continents, forget about the culture, this bad boy is worth visiting purely for your Scratch Map® poster.

4. Croatia

The latest fad all the cool kids are chatting about is Croatia, the coastline connoisseur of Eastern Europe. With island hopping, medieval museums and the main filming location of Game of Thrones, not having Croatia uncovered on your Scratch Map® poster is almost worse than not watching Game of Thrones. Who would do that?

3. The USA

From the Golden Gate Bridge to the Grand Canyon, the US of A has something to please every wanderlust fiend so it’s no surprise it’s number three on our top ten travel destinations.

2. Djibouti

In terms of scratch map competition, travelling somewhere off the beaten track will make you feel far superior and intelligent when speaking to friends “Oh, you don’t know Djibouti? It’s in Africa did you know…”

1. Brazil

It has the World Cup, it has the Olympics and it has it all. From bustling nightlife and booming street art to bucket loads of beauty, this South American country certainly has curves in all the right places. For this reason we proudly offer it first place in our top ten travel destinations on our Scratch Map® poster waiting to be uncovered.

Unusual Gift Ideas for The Girlfriend Who Has Everything

unusual-gifts

Girls are notoriously hard to please when it comes to buying gifts. You need a present that’s quirky and original yet not so off-the-wall that you’re faced with the “you don’t know me at all” stare. A lipstick in the wrong shade and she could think you don’t like her look… A book in the wrong genre and she’ll doubt you’ve been listening to her… An outfit in the wrong size and you’re sleeping on the sofa. So, let Luckies take the stress out of searching for that perfect gift for the girlfriend who has everything.

Unusual Gifts Ideas for the Health-Buff Girlfriend

If your lady treats her body like a temple then you need to too. If she reads up on the latest health fads and is all over the low-cal options, we reckon she’ll like Cucumbo. This nifty little spiraliser creates vegetable noodles from any semi-soft vegetables making it the perfect unusual gift for any girl that loves her crab substitutes, creating instantly healthy meals in a flash.

Unusual Gifts Ideas for the Arty-Farty Girlfriend

If your girlfriend can often be found doodling in notebooks, watching the latest Warhol documentary or forever paying a visit to the local gallery, then why not try an arty gift to suit her personality? Birds of a Feather by Threadless is a movable decal that is easily applied to walls and guaranteed to brighten up any room. Its modern feather stencil design is bound to get those creative juices flowing – eat your heart out Banksy!

Unusual Gifts Ideas for the Baking-Guru Girlfriend

If your girlfriend could give Nigella a run for her money then she should try the Cookie Cup Cookie Cutter – a biscuit cutter that makes your baked goods into awesome little tea cups! This is possibly the cutest present around, and is bound to earn you some brownie points (and possibly some brownies as well). Let her customise her cookies, biscuits, cakes and bakes with stars and spots – it may even inspire her to fill in that Bake Off application at last!

Unusual Gifts Ideas for the Old-Romantic Girlfriend

If your girlfriend is an old romantic at heart and you’re always looking for evermore quirky and unusual gifts to get her, why not try Love Note – a message in a bottle that you can pour your sweet nothings into before sealing with the sticker provided. She’ll love that you’ve been creative and written the message yourself – romance has come a long way from rose petals on the bed!

Unusual Gifts Ideas for the Book Worm Girlfriend

If your better half is more fond of her treasured collection of books rather than watching the latest season of X Factor then she’ll love Hippomark Bookmark – a quirky little gift that will show her how much you know about her hobbies and passions. He’ll brighten up any half-read book as he swims through the pages, and is bound to go down a treat with any avid book worm.

5 Travel Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day

unusual-valentines-gifts

If your better half has got the travel bug (clues: they’re forever rifling through Lonely Planet and have started using made up words like ‘wanderlust’), then it’s a safe bet that they’d love a travel related gift for Valentine’s Day. But with so many on the market, it’s hard to find an unusual gift that’s going to cut the mustard. Whether your partner is into trekking through the wilderness in South East Asia or just mooching around the English countryside, this handy V-Day gift guide for the travel obsessed lover has got it covered.

Tag Me Luggage Tag is a cute little airplane shaped bag tag that makes the perfect gift for the traveller that likes to accessorise. It’s also great for tackling those awkward moments at airports when trying to prove that plain black suitcase really is yours without rifling through your sundries mid airport lounge. It’s also available in two colours – perfect for adding a bit of style to your journey!

This next gift is great for anyone that’s been the unfortunate victim of a pesky pick pocket on their travels. Not only is the Undercover Phone Sleeve big enough to keep your MP3 player, keys, camera and bank card safe from prying hands, but it’s shockproof, splash proof, and tear proof! Cleverly disguised as an old envelope, it’ll keep your loved one’s valuables safe, and means that you can continue with those treasured Skype calls while they’re away!

Travelogue Travel Journal makes a great Valentines present for the wordsmiths among us – it’s a journal that’s ready made to plan trips with miniature Scratch Map® maps to complete on route, AND room to tuck in boarding passes, polaroids and notes. Why not up the ante and write a soppy Valentine’s Day note in the front, or hide some loving letters in the pages for your sweetheart to find on their travels?

If your other half is forever returning from trips with a pocketful of useless shrapnel in a myriad of currencies then this present won’t go unappreciated by both of you. Currency Money Bank is a piggy bank with a difference – six separate compartments mean your partner can organise their travel cash with ease! That and they’ll stop accidentally trying to buy you a Costa with Yen…

Last up on our list of travel gifts for Valentine’s Day is Shoes Pouch – great for those partners that need a bit of help organising their bits and pieces on holiday. If your lover is forever asking you to sit on their suitcase while they fight with the zip, then this makes a great unusual gift to give them a helping hand. And not only does it keep the dust and dirt from getting on their clothes, but it also keeps their stinky trekking shoes from contaminating the rest of the hotel. It’s so effective it’ll have you wondering whether it’s really a present for them or for you!

It may be wise to buy some headphones for him too…

5 Secret Santa Gift Ideas

secret-santa-gifts

Secret Santa is one of those traditions that sounds super fun, but when you pull a name out of a hat and realise you don’t know who the hell it is (let alone what they’d think was an awesome Christmas gift), it becomes more of a chore than a festivity. Here are a few ideas to get you out of a few sticky secret santa situations, from getting the creepy guy in the office to pulling out the names of people you’re still at the ‘how was your weekend?’ stage with.

Secret Santa Gift Ideas for the Office

Brown Paper Lunch Bag is the perfect gift for anyone at work that is, say, a little particular about their lunching habits. If they can always be heard complaining that someone’s taken their sandwiches or squished their fruit then this is the perfect gift for them. Designed to resemble the iconic American paper lunch bag, it’s also durable, reusable and insulated, keeping their hot food hot or cold drinks cold. Oh and they can personalise it too, so should they feel the need to write a passive aggressive ‘Keep Out’ note on it they can…

If you’ve got a colleague that you’re forever asking to complete tasks for you then finding out four months down the line your request went unheeded, give them a subtle yet festive hint with Robin Reindeer Memo. A smart looking memo holder that you can pop your notes in to remind Judy from accounts that you’re still waiting for her to pay that invoice from February…

Secret Santa Gift Ideas for your Family

It’s sometimes best to play it safe with family secret santa… Whilst you and your sister might find it hilarious to buy each other rude presents, Grandma might not find them as amusing. With that in mind, the Umbrella tea infuser makes the perfect gift for those family members that enjoy a nice cuppa – let’s face it, it’s bound to be most of them! Simply pop your favourite loose leaf tea inside the umbrella and watch it brew – a perfect stocking filler for all tea lovers.

And for the younger (or at least young at heart) contingent of the family, there’s the OMY Giant Colouring Poster. Designed to keep the littlens busy for hours, this poster sized colouring paper comes in a range of designs from Paris to Magic and there’s even a Christmas themed poster perfect for those seasonal colouring sessions. So if you need a rest from the excitement of children on a Christmas morning, give them this awesome present and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet.

Secret Santa Gift Ideas for your Friends

All groups of friends have a joker among them – the one who lifts the group spirits and is always on hand with a quip or an anecdote. If you’re lucky enough to pull their name out of the hat then buy them the Rubber Jonny – a pencil eraser that looks just like a condom. Designed to break the tension at any secret santa big reveals, it’s bound to raise a few smiles. That, and it’ll be great to see how many sexual innuendos follow!

Our next present is for the friend that you’re super pleased you got in the secret santa sweepstake. You Complete Me Christmas is a wooden jigsaw shaped like a Christmas tree that is not only festive and fun, but also houses a handwritten message of your choosing on the back. Put a personal joke you both share or just a cute little festive message and watch them piece the puzzle (literally) together of who gave it to them.

Unusual Gift Ideas for The Boyfriend Who Has Everything

gifts-for-boyfriends

Whether you’ve been dating for years or you’re still in the honeymoon period, the subject of gifts can be a tricky one. Get him the wrong thing and he’ll begin to doubt you know him at all. And whilst he’s been leaving not-so-subtle hints that he wants the latest games console (the casual way he pins the magazine adverts to the fridge in case he forgets what it’s called…), you’ve not got the money to spend on a console that’s probably going to replace you anyway.

Unusual Gifts for the Film-Buff Boyfriend – Smartphone Projector 2.0

The Smartphone Projector 2.0 is the perfect unusual gift for the boyfriend who loves his film collection more than he loves you. No man-cave is complete without a projector to watch all his favourite shows or sporting events on, and with a range of colours including the dapper black and gold, the on-trend copper, and the classic original in leather effect, there’s bound to be a colour that suits your boyfriend’s style spot on. Instantly transforming his study or garage in to a home cinema, it’s the perfect gift for any gadget loving guy.

Unusual Gifts for the Pimp-My-Ride Boyfriend – Skull Caps

Skull Caps make the perfect unusual gift for any boyfriend who is continually looking out for the latest trends to pimp their ride. Designed to resemble little skull shaped dust caps, these cool accessories also keep the dirt out of your bicycle valves. They come packaged in a cool gift box to make them the perfect gift for any keen cyclist, and great for any fella that wants to stand out from the crowd whilst cruising the streets on his bike.

Unusual Gifts for the Craft-Challenged Boyfriend – No Sew Buttons

If your boyfriend is continually asking you to darn his socks, fix his elbow patches or sew up his shirts, remind him politely that the ‘50s weren’t as fun as Mad Men makes out, and that technology has progressed so that he can complete such tasks himself. Enter No Sew Buttons. Doing exactly what they say on the tin, these no thread, no sew buttons clip on to your garments instantly! So not only will he never have to panic sew a button on before a meeting, but he’ll feel confident in his skills as a seamstress and complete these menial tasks himself! A present for him or you? We’ll let you decide…

Unusual Gifts for the Sporty Boyfriend – Sports Huevos

If your man is all about sport – from his Adidas shower gel to his Sports Direct coffee mug, we’ve got the perfect gift for you. Sports Huevos egg mould takes your regular hard-boiled eggs (the breakfast of all champion sports stars) and turns them into sports balls! Who doesn’t love a novelty breakfast? And if you make it for him while he’s snoozing for an extra special Birthday breakfast, you’re sure to earn some extra girlfriend points to cash in when you want him to go see the new Bridget Jones with you.

Unusual Gifts for the Retro-Game Loving Boyfriend – Deco Decal Stickers

If your boyfriend’s misspent youth (and beyond) is fondly remembered with tales of Super Mario Kart, Yoshi’s World and the everlasting battle to save Princess Peach from the grips of the terrible turtle dinosaur, Bowser, then stop searching for the ultimate gift right now – we give to you, the Super Mario Bros U Re-Stick from Nintendo…Deco Decal Stickers that you can use to decorate any man cave that are so life like, it’s like actually watching a game on pause. Just make sure he doesn’t start putting them up in the bedroom…
