When you’ve got a bucket list that includes all 50 states, you can employ some pretty creative techniques to keep track of your progress, but one of the most fun ways is with a scratch-off, watercolor map of the country.
This 16-inch by 20-inch map is covered in gold foil that contrasts starkly with the black backdrop. When you visit a new state simply take a coin and scratch off the shiny gold overlay to reveal the beautiful watercolor background hidden underneath.
While scratching off the states is fun, seeing states yet to be revealed is a good motivator to get out there and see the rest of the country to complete your map. Once you have reached your goal of seeing the whole country you will be left with a beautiful watercolor map on which you can proudly display your accomplishments.
The map is printed on heavy-duty art paper and comes in a sturdy cardboard tube to keep it safe until you are ready to use it. The map isn’t just a great way to track your progress across the country, but it also makes a great gift for anyone who loves to travel.
The map retails on Amazon for $19.99.
