Hello Amazonians.
I have a Kindle Fire due to be delivered on Friday, no options to change date.
It is a surprise xmas present for my son and he is the only one at home on Friday (his first visit home for months, typical). I bought myself a kindle a couple of years ago and when it arrived it was blindingly obvious that it was a Kindle as it said KINDLE all over the box.
Actually when I opened it the box was empty as someone along the chain of delivery helped themselves to it but thats another story.
Bottom line is if Kindle Fire is embazoned all over the box he will know whats inside and as he is a clever chap and knows what everyone else is getting for xmas he will know its for him and big xmas surprise down the toilet.
Can anyone who has had a Kindle Fire let me know if Amazon have now changed their packaging to deter thieves and preserve surprises and now send Kindles in plain packaging.

It will not come in a plain box, Stephen, so you'll have to beat your son to it.

Cheers Brian.
Amazon never learn, anyway a day off work is better than a spoilt surprise.

Stephen, if you selected "This will be a gift" it should arrive in the normal Amazon packaging with no indication of what it is. If you didn't select that option then it will arrive in the standard Kindle Fire box with images of the Fire Home screen front and back.

Yes, I agree, Stephen :)
