Travel crossword print

Personalized travel crossword prints are a great way to celebrate travels. These guys print the travel destinations as a crossword and the dates of travel underneath as clues. Or, instead of dates, you can add a special memory like their favourite food or a special place they visited.

Travel quote map of the world

This travel quote map of the world print has approximately 75 travel quotes and proverbs – some thoughtful, some amusing, some well known and some not so well known.

The text is printed in different colours and styles so that from a distance the print looks like a map of the world, but when you get closer you can read the individual quotes and proverbs.

Personalised departure board

I’ve left my favourite to last – I think the idea of a personalised departure board is such a cute idea!

Justin, if you’re reading this here’s a subtle hint for what to get me this year! 😉
