New Work: ‘Darling, I Got You a Paperclip’
With the world economy in tailspin, splashing out on expensive gifts for your loved one might be a bad move these holidays.
But fear not, because the Pentagram annual holiday card is here to help. Darling I got you a paperclip features a set of twelve gift tags that show how with a little creative thinking, even the cheapest present can show the richness of your love.
The presents featured include dental floss, a tennis ball, some batteries, a box of matches, a pack of sweeteners, and, of course, a paperclip.
The 12 tags are printed on white perforated card with silver backing for some restrained Christmas cheer, and are presented in a grey book with a single austere hole that runs from cover to cover, allowing each tag to be attached by ribbon or string to a low-expense gift.
Naresh Ramchandani says, “How can you give a generous gift while tightening your purse strings? With this special set of austerity gift tags, designed to make your love go further than your budget can.”
