World Map Gifts Giveaways

Using my world map umbrella in Brazil to fend off the pesky sun, it was HOT!

To celebrate 3 years of Conversant Traveller, we’re having a whole month of fab travel related GIVEAWAYS, just to say thanks for tagging along on our adventures. We certainly wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for YOU!

If you fancy a giggle you can have a read of our 3 year blog anniversary post. In time honoured CT fashion, it tells you about all the ridiculous searches people have typed into Google which led them to our blog. It was highly amusing last year (and also a bit worrying!), but this time I think it may be even better! Thankfully the searches for ‘ladies of the night’ in various parts of the world didn’t quite make the number 1 slot this year. Find our what did right here!

Or if you just want to skip to the free stuff, then read on my amigos.

The theme of our giveaway is WORLD MAP GIFTS…because who doesn’t love stuff with maps on? I’ll admit to being a little obsessed. Our house is full of things plastered in hemispheres, continents, tropics and poles. From bags and phones and to lampshades and even cushions, we have it all. You could say there’s a bit of a theme going on.

Anyway. we’ve picked up 4 brilliant world map gifts for you to get your hands on (and yes, they’re all things we have ourselves!). We’ll be running one giveaway at a time – make sure you bookmark this page so you can come back and enter them all.

GIVEAWAY 1 – World Map Umbrella

Open: Sunday 21 August 2016

Ends: Monday 5 September 2016

Umbrellas are great when it’s hot and wet!

This was my favourite world map gift this year, thanks mum! Living in the Lake District we’re used to rain, and never go anywhere without our waterproof jackets, even in the summer. When it comes to travelling, we’re reluctant to leave them behind, I guess they’re a bit of a safety blanket for us. Yet despite lugging them all over the world, we’ve never once used them. Sure, we’ve had bad weather on our trips, but it’s always been far too humid to want to wear a jacket. Which is where the umbrella comes in! Perfect for fending off the rain in hot countries, and being foldable, it takes up far less room than waterproof clothing and looks great too!

It was too hot in Brazil for waterproofs so the umbrella was handy!

For a foldable umbrella, it’s actually pretty sturdy, not one of those flimsy things that turn inside out in a stiff breeze. I love using mine in the sun too, for a bit of shade from the intense heat of the day. Bonus!

My boss bought this world map gift for me for Christmas last year (how cool is she?!) and it’s been all over the world with us ever since. Because you DO need somewhere for your dirty undies, if you’re not into the whole ‘recycling’ pants thing (those days are long past us!). We also use the bags for packing footwear, clothes and toiletries, and love that they fold away in a neat little pouch when they’re not being used.

GIVEAWAY 3 – World Map Portable Charger

Open: Monday 19th September 2016

Closes: Monday 3rd October 2016

We often find ourselves in places without wall sockets, and sometimes even electricity. Like the desert! So having a portable charger for our phones is essential when we’re away. I love this one from Paperchase which is only 66g and of course has a world map on it. So cool. It’s compatible with micro USB, android and iPhone 5/5s/5c/6.

GIVEAWAY 4 – World Map Makeup Bag

Open: Monday 3rd October 2016

Closes: Monday 17th October 2016

Ok, so this cute little world map gift is actually a pencil case, but with 3 compartments I use mine as a make up bag. It has the same vintage map design as the portable charger, and the middle pocket has a zip to keep little bits and bobs safe.

    I’d take it everywhere, the rainy UK, and lovely sunny places too like Thailand to protect me from the sun. Any excuse to use it!

  2. says: Justina Howells

    Just like you I love maps of the world 🙂 As a child I used to sit with my dad’s Reader’s Digest Atlas looking for the deepest parts of the oceans and the highest mountains.
    These items are really lovely. We love weekends away in the UK so the umbrella would definitely get plenty of use. Our next trip will be the Highlands of Scotland.

    1. says: Heather Cole

      What lovely memories, it’s moments like that which last a lifetime. I had a similar childhood experience and it led me to study geography at uni! Enjoy the Highlands, lovely part of the world!

  3. says: Angi

    In an ideal world I would take the laundry bags to Hawaii however as I am terrified of flying and have two very young children think it will be more like Disneyland Paris!!!! I think it’s actually cheaper to get to Hawaii lol

  4. says: Eve Burke

    We camp a lot in the UK so I would take it with me everywhere!!! Also I am a TA so this would be cool for my playground duty in the rain!

  5. says: Beth

    Such a cute idea! I’ve been eyeing that umbrella for a while, but just can’t find something as good as this one in the States! Congrats on three years. 🙂

  6. says: jennifer bolognesi

    Japan I have always wanted to visit and it’s on my bucket list. I could use my umbrella in the rain or on a sunny day as Japanese women look after their skin

  7. says: Kim Styles

    I would take the brolly to the Lake District because I have ruined two there already -I need a better quality brolly and I think this would be the one

    1. says: Heather Cole

      I can tell you it’s been raining here all day, and I’ve even used my world map brolly to dash from the car into work! Good choice!

  8. says: Emmalene

    Love that umbrella! I always end up buying souvenir umbrellas which never last beyond the journey home! We’re off to the Pacific North West next year…I hear it always rains in Seattle so this brolly would be perfect!

    1. says: Heather Cole

      It’s lovely isn’t it, especially the colour. We have a draw full of souvenir umbrellas too (that never get used because they’re so flimsy). Enjoy Seattle!

  9. says: Rebecca Hall

    Oh gosh! I love the ideas of world map items. If I were to take it on holiday, it’d have to be to rainy Seattle (a place I love!) or definitely use when I go back to the UK. I’d love a bit of colour in the rain
