PUTTING IT TOGETHER I've always appreciated Penguin's design aesthetic so when I came across this wrapping paper, I was instantly smitten. How perfect for a voracious reader (especially if you're wrapping a stack of paperbacks). Carry on the book-loving theme with alphabet ribbon and a typewriter birthday card, then pin this I Love Words button to the bow. Overkill on the theme? Nah.
