25 gifts under $25, No. 6: Scratch-off map

You know how your sister-in-law loves posting countless albums of her “exotic” cruise trips to Facebook? And how your roommate likes to put pins in a map to show how well-traveled and “worldly” he is? This awesome gift will keep them both busy logging destinations in a new way. A map of the world feels more like a lottery ticket when the shiny metallic suface scratches off. It’s a fun — and humblebrag — way to keep track of travel adventures. Meanwhile you can internally gloat over all the culture accessible in your borough. Measures about 16.5″x12″ when unrolled and about 5″x2″ in its travel tube.

$25 at Fred Flare.
