A few folks over at The Book Club Forum are taking part in an exchange of bookish gifts – sort of like a Secret Santa – and I finally wrapped mine ready for sending today. Obviously I can’t show or tell you what’s in it just now (in case my recipient reads this post and the surprise is ruined!), but I thought that in the meantime I’d post a picture of the present all packaged up, so here it is!
I went for a simple look – magenta tissue paper and gold ribbon with gold ribbon curls at the centre knot and a couple of silver stars stuck on for good measure. I didn’t want it to be anything too elaborate, as it will be getting popped into a plain package to be sent through the post and I didn’t want to risk decorations getting damaged, so simplicity was key on this occasion.
When we all open our gifts (which I believe it to be on Christmas Day, although I could be wrong – I’ll have to check that!), I shall post photos of the gift I sent as well as what I received in return from my own Bookmas Secret Santa.
