We bought her this book at her request. She must be a fan of Grand Designs.
I had a quick flick through it. It's basically Kevin's dogma about living a well-considered and sustainable life in the 21st century. It would actually be a good read from what I could see.
|The wise words of Kevin|
So channeling Kevin, I found an old paper shopping bag. Jason's Rhodes and Becketts shirt buying habit has ensured we have an endless supply of black cardboard shopping bags which I save for a rainy day. (Forgive my depression-era mentality!!)
I just dismantled it at the seams, took off the handles and used it as wrapping paper.
These bags make great wrapping paper. Large, thick and sturdy. And perfect for wrapping Kevin's manifesto. I made the shiny logo part the inside of the wrapping.

|Black parcel. I just need to trim the ends of the ribbon!|
And now we have a stylish matte black parcel, perfectly appropriate for its contents.
(It also solves the problem of completely running out of wrapping paper that wasn't Christmassy!!)
