Christmas present, but not for me

This is the present I got for my boyfriend.   Awhile ago Rob and I saw some framed underground maps in a shop in London and they were seriously expensive.   I bought this map on ebay for a very reasonable price, it is a 1957 map and I had it framed (thank you, Dragonfly of Cheam for helping me choose the mount and frame).   I think it looks fab and very masculine with the black mount and the black and silver frame.  

And glass both sides.
I sent this out to Rob today so hope he likes it.

  1. Clever idea to buy a map and have it framed rather than spending ridiculous money in a London shop...some people are just so greedy it takes the fun out of shopping! Nice masculine present, yes.
