At Christmas time there's such a wide selection of wrapping paper available, that choice is unlimited. However, when it comes to birthdays and other occasions I find that a lot of paper is tacky. I like to try make a present more personal!
I recently had a gift (Game of Thrones book ;) )for someone who lives in London and I saw an old map of the underground (which could also double as a poster!) and I thought it was perfect! I bought it in a shop in my hometown but I searched the web and it is also for sale here. It is on the pricier side (I paid €3.15), but I think its nice to present something unique! As far as I can gather, the paper I used was a 'Cavallini' product, and more of their designs can be purchased here.
