I don’t buy presents very often, but am the sort of person who tends to give almost as much effort into getting the most appropriate wrapping paper and gift card as I do to the present itself.
If you, like me, think the presentation is as important as the goods within, then you might be interested to hear that the Grant Museum has launched its own wrapping paper — made up of tiny slides of dead bugs and insects.
Covering up presents in the printed impression of dead bugs simply has to be the perfect way of presenting a gift to the scientist or geek in your life.
And supporting a museum. Even better you have to visit the museum to buy it — so you can take in a visit to the Micrarium on which the wrapping paper is based.
The Grant Museum is open Monday-Saturday 1pm-5pm. Admission free.
The wrapping paper is a quid per sheet, which is comparable to decent wrapping paper from upmarket retailers.
I might need a few sheets for Christmas time.
Wonder if they will branch out to printed representations of the Glass Jar of Moles?
