5 gift ideas for Mother’s Day

Mothers Day is creeping up early this year. At Yellow Publications we have a great selections of maps, accessories and gift ideas for the mother who loves being outdoors.

Find something special for your mother this year, doesn’t she deserve it?


  • Dartmoor Box Set:


Our hugely popular Dartmoor box set is a great gift idea for mothers who love the outdoors. Set at a scale of 1:25 000 we’ve divided the OS coverage of Dartmoor National Park into seven pocket-sized yellow maps, ideal for all activities and splash-proof so you can get outdoors in all kinds of weather.

“I don’t always want to do a 20 mile yomp so having a small map is quite handy if you want to just take one or two maps with you, or say, only have one map in your pocket at a time …” – Smith, Amazon review

A fantastic choice for a weeks holiday. You can find the box set on Amazon or on our website.

  • Bookmarks –


Whether you prefer our maritime bookmarks or our ‘mapmarks’ these are the perfect gift for the lady who always has her nose in a book. This classy gift will have your mother thinking of you every time she sees her bookmark’s pretty tassle.

Unfortunately, only the maritime bookmarks are available from our website (the bookmarks are still quite a recent product). Your local bookshop may stock the ‘mapmarks’ in which case do please buy them from your local retailer. We do our best to support small businesses.

  • Poldark Film Locations guide –

An equally lovely mothers day gift idea if you’re a little strapped for cash is this Poldark Film Locations Guide. If your mum is a fan of the BBC production maybe a trip down to the beautiful South West coast is the answer. Explore Cornwall like never before with this bargain map of eight walks for the price of one as you discover Poldark’s stunning film locations from a completely different perspective.

By far one of our most celebrated products and definitely in-fashion at the moment (thank you Aidan Turner 😉 ). It was featured in the travel section of the Telegraph a couple of weeks ago and is available at the bargain price of £3.99 from our website.

Perfect for tourists and and the ultimate walking guide for the local. If your mum is mad about Cornwall this is the ideal gift. At a scale of 1:16 000 (the same as our iconic Around and About range) the Bodmin Moor Box Set comes with a set of four pocket-sized, splash-proof maps, a legend and a scale ruler.

At the moment you have to ring in to order this brand new product but it will soon be available off the website.

  • Forest of Dean Wall Map –

A classy way to celebrate your mother this mothering Sunday. This wall map is made using OS data as are all our products. It makes a lovely surprise holiday souvenir and is equally wonderful for a mum to commemorate her love for the local area.

The Forest of Dean Wall Map is available for purchase on our website. We also produce a very popular wall map of Dartmoor National Park if you’re interested in something more South-Westerly.


Even if you don’t go for any of these choices we hope you have a great day, get outside for a walk and enjoy the weather wherever you may be (fingers crossed for sunshine mother nature). You can find us on twitter, facebook, google+ and pinterest. Please follow and like us and we’ll keep you updated with the latest news.
