Gifts that Keep on Giving

       When Santa returns home from his busy night of gift-delivering, there’s nothing he loves more than to sit in a comfortable chair, soak his feet, sip a Hot Buttered Rum and read a magazine.  Probably many of the people on your gift list enjoy magazines, too.  And they have the added advantage of purchasing from the comfort of your own home.

Dad always opens to the business section of the paper first.  Perhaps FORTUNE or THE ECONOMIST would be perfect for him.

Young readers would love to get a subscription to a children’s magazine.  CRICKET and HIGHLIGHTS  both offer special magazines for every age. 

Whatever the special on your list is interested in, there’s a magazine just right for him or her.  And every day the magazine arrives, the receiver will think of you and smile.

In future posts we’ll look at other gifts that keep on giving, but in the next blog, Friday, November 15th, it’s time to start thinking about holiday cards. 

Until then, let’s all strive for a stress-free, love-filled Christmas . . .
