Gift Company “World Map Boxes Set of Three” Review – Ideal Gift Item
Once again I am lucky enough to be working with Gift Company this Autumn to bring you a selection of items throughout November and December. All of these items would all make excellent gifts for people this Christmas. Check out my “Gifts” section of my blog for more examples of reviewed products.
Gift Company is a wonderful UK based and family run company that prides itself on providing unique and quality giftware, homeware and furniture, to the people of the United Kingdom.
They also have a huge range of Christmas related stock and a wide range of items that would make awesome gifts too. Available both in stores and on their website. But that is not all they do, and if you haven’t heard of them before today I think you should check out their information at the end of this review…
Dimensions and Product Information
Item Description: A Set of three World Map Boxes. The lids are decorated with maps of our world, the smaller details include island names, ships and oceans. They make a perfect gift for an avid traveler. Inside each box is a secured and tough black fabric. The boxes are wooden, and painted white except for the map on each lid. The lids maps appear to be printed and stuck down to the wood.
Box 1 (Largest) 23.5cm L x 17cm W x 8.7cm D (5.9cm Inner Depth)
Box 2 (Medium) 20.5cm L x 14.1cm W x 7.5cm D (5cm Inner Depth)
Box 3 (Smallest) 18cm L x 10.5cm W x 6cm D (3.5cm Inner Depth)
Item Details: Ideal items to hold travel cards, tickets, passports old and new, plane tickets, boat tickets, holiday snaps, holiday keepsakes. Possibilities are huge for these boxes. You could keep anything inside it though, not just travel items. Someone could be a fan of the Earth but wants to use it as a jewellery box!
Item Price: £15.00 (RRP £25.00).
Item Delivery: The item was delivered within its own box and carefully wrapped.
What Makes This A Great Gift
✩ An excellent gift set with lots of detail to the pictures on the lids.
✩ It is well made and the wood is painted for a professional finish that is made to look shabby chic and old fashioned.
✩ This set is a great gift because the use of them can be personalised to the recipient.
Things To Be Aware Of
✩ This set is made of wood & should be kept far away from any flames or heat sources
✩ Keep the wood away from any moisture that could warp the wood over time.
What Could You Use This Gift For? Who Is It Ideal To Give To?
In my opinion a gift set such as this is ideal for anyone who loves travel, geography or history. These boxes are produced to a high standard, and although you could put anything you wanted inside them, a great idea would be to keep any travel tickets or memorable holiday pieces inside. On the website it suggests as a gift “for him” but I strongly disagree, there is nothing significantly masculine about the boxes, therefore any person who shares an interest in the world should love these items.
Having received three boxes in this set, you could choose to keep them together or separate them for different people. If you have a family member who enjoys sightseeing or travel, or someone who loves the geography of the Earth and wants to go around the world one day, these pieces would be perfect for them.

Overall Review Scores Elaborated
Overall I am happy with the scores I have given these items. I believe that receiving three boxes for the price is excellent value for your money, and the quality of them has been good throughout.
I only have a very tiny observation, and that is when you buy, if you buy in a store, inspect that all hinges are straight and all corners are aligned. Everything is flush and fits together well and that no corners of the printed pattern are curling up.
They were delivered in their own box and there were sheets of paper in between them to help prevent any damage to the paintwork.
Thank you for reading this product review today, I hope that you have enjoyed reading about these great gifts. You can see more information about Gift Company stores and links to their online pages below. Have a great day!

Gift Company approached me again this festive season after we collaborated last year, and I was more than happy to do some more product reviews for them. Every time we work together I am sent these items to review for free, in return for my honest opinions and photography. For this service I do get to keep the products. I personally use and test the items and through my own experience is how I write my review. I do not work for Gift Company, neither do I get paid any commission that is generated from any sales that may occur from my work.
