Deciding to buy a globe as a gift for yourself or someone else is an excellent decision. There is really no substitute for the 3 dimensional replica of our earth. Buy a globe for anyone you know who shares your “world view”.
BUY A GLOBE FOR EVERYONE - 1-World Globes presents the world’s largest selection of globes. We believe that a globe is the perfect gift and that if you buy a globe for everyone on your list, your gift(s) will be long remembered and well appreciated.
BUY A GLOBE BY SIZE – Globes are measured by diameter, meaning the distance straight through the middle of the globe. Most globes are manufactured in standard sizes:
• Small Globes: 6” – 9”
• Medium Desk Globes: 12” – 14”
• Medium Floor Globes 12" -- 14"
• Large Globes: 16”
• Extra Large Globes: 20” – 32”
BUY A GLOBE THAT IS ILLUMINATED OR NOT?
• Illuminated globes allow a lovely, ambient light to radiate softly from the globe. A lit illuminated globe makes a beautiful “night light” in any room.
• Illuminated globe balls are made of plastic, so that the light can show through the translucent sphere. If you wish to buy a globe that is not plastic, do not choose an illuminated globe.
• Illuminated globes do include an electrical cord that will plug into the wall. This will dictate where you place the globe (near an outlet) and will restrict the movement or spinning action of the globe to a certain extent.
BUY A GLOBE THAT IS POLITICAL – Political globes are globes that feature countries in solid blocks of color, usually with extensive labeling. Most of our globes are considered political.
BUY A GLOBE THAT IS PHYSICAL – Physical globes use color to illustrate the natural colors of the earth. Climate conditions and landforms are shown with coloration.
BUY A GLOBE THAT HAS A BLUE OCEAN
• Most people think of the earth with oceans of blue.
• We recommend blue ocean globes for kids and students.
BUY A GLOBE THAT HAS AN “ANTIQUE OCEAN”
• “Antique Oceans” refer to the color of parchment paper which results in an antique look to the globe. These globes feature current cartography and are only antique in color.
BUY A GLOBE WITH RAISED RELIEF
• Raised relief globes feature texture on the globe’s surface to indicate the earth’s terrain. Mountain ranges and sometimes undersea features as well are presented in raised and indented relief.
BUY A GLOBE THAT SHOWS DAY AND NIGHT
• Day and Night type globes are illuminated and are designed to show the pattern of the sun on the earth. Some globes also indicate the twilight rings and the apex of the sun.
• Day and Night globes are useful teaching aids for students learning about the earth and its relation to the position of the Sun.
• Businesses find Day and Night globes useful to determine time of day in global markets.
BUY A GEMSTONE GLOBE
• Gemstone Globes have become a highly prized gift item, featuring globes made entirely of gemstones. Oceans of ground Blue Lapis, Black Onyx, Mother of Pearl, Aqua Quartz and others surround continents that consist of hand-carved gemstone countries. The gemstone countries are fitted with skill and precision, creating a colorful and fascinating mosaic.
• A wonderfully rich and extravagant gift for someone who “means the world to you"
