Great gift ..

Mark Katarsky Trustpilot product review 3 star rating June 18 2021

Purchased the "gift box" but it doesn't come with the plastic sleeve that you get for free if you don't purchase the gift box. The newspaper is very old so it clearly needs it. When you purchase the additional gift box, it should come in the plastic sleeve inside the gift box.
