Wrapping Paper for Geek Lovers
Electronics gadgets are projected to be the most gifted items this holiday season. The top three wished-for gifts are a laptop, iPad and e-reader. Once you've done your shopping, why not go all the way and wrap that coveted gift in paper designed for the tech enthusiast? ThinkGeek offers several to consider:
- Binary, black with terminal green ones and zeros in strings across the paper that spell 'wrapping paper,' perfect for wrapping any computer-type device.
- Zombies, another black paper with a host of zombies and beribboned brains. A good choice if you're gifting a video game such as Left4Dead or even the iPhone loaded with Call of Duty World at War: Zombies.
- The all-purpose Christmas Bots whose pale blue paper littered with snowflakes and festive friendly robots is a good choice for kids .
- Another all-purpose choice is Equations, featuring scientific equations hand-written on blue and white graph paper.
Each pack of wrapping paper contains four sheets. Each sheet is 20 inches x 30 inches. So how many gifts could you wrap with one $6 pack of paper? An iPod nano and a Kindle e-reader: one sheet; a Toshiba Satellite 15.6-inch laptop: two sheets; and a new Samsung NX100 , an interchangeable lens compact camera and an Eye-Fi , a Wi-Fi SD card for wireless upload from camera to computer: one sheet.
