I have been having so much fun designing and bringing to fruition my home library. Since I have so many books, I knew my wall space would be slim. Nevertheless, there is always room for a beautiful map. I've always loved the idea of push pin maps, but I had never seen something that was both beautiful and functional, until I found Push Pin Travel Maps. I thought it would be the perfect addition to my library, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on one. When you see how cool these things are, you'll want one too.
I received a Push Pin Travel Map for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. See my full disclosure policy for more details.
Push Pin Travel Maps
Push Pin Travel Maps are a beautiful combination of a high quality map and a pin-able travel tracking tool. The framed dimensions are 27.5" H x 39.5" W. There are a variety of maps to choose from:
- World Maps (in a variety of colors)
- US Maps
- State Maps (currently just California and Colorado)
- National Parks Maps
You can choose to mount your map DIY style, but I recommend getting the map framed in the complete set. With a variety of frame styles to choose from, you can really customize it to your personal taste. Each set comes with a tin of 100 pins to start you off in your pinning. It also comes ready to hang!
I always get nervous when I entrust something that is to be a beautiful feature piece in my room to the shipping services. However, I shouldn't have worried at all because the map is shipped very securely.
It arrived in perfect condition! Isn't it beautiful? I chose the Teal Dream Travel Map with a textured white frame. It looked even better in person!
Each map also comes with a personalized plaque. I chose a summary of Matthew 5:13-16 to help us remember to pray for the people all over the world.
Celebrating Family Travels
We love to travel. Some of our favorite family memories are on road trips to exciting locations. Last year we loved seeing Niagara Falls on our way home from Boston. As we put pins in places where we've visited, it was fun to see where we've been, but also dream about filling our map in with new trips. The west coast is next on our dream list!
Tracking More Than Our Travel
While it's fun to track our family's travel, I really wanted a map like this to track the missionaries we're praying for. It's so fun to see little lights around the world that are going to the "ends of the earth".
With different color push pins, you can track both your travels and those you're praying for.
My husband's parents have been in Benin since the first of January. They send us emails every day to update us on the work they're doing there. In September, they're headed to Cameroon, which is a couple countries away. It's wonderful for the kids to be able to have a tangible way to see where their grandparents are.
A Beautiful Work of Art
I love that this map not only tracks our travels and helps us remember to pray for missionaries serving around the world, but it is truly a beautiful work of art. It is the perfect artwork for my library, and I know it will be a great conversation piece for everyone who comes over.
I love the color scheme of this map. It is so cheery and vibrant. My kids will spend hours studying it, and I'll be right there beside them.
I look forward to dreaming of traveling, praying for missionaries, and enjoying the beauty of this unique work of art.
