Last Minute Shopping

A week to go in the Christmas gift search - but 2 weeks if you give a new year gift! (I'm a classic Christmas Eve day/night shopper.)

We are not the only ones that were considering gifts for the poetically inclined.

From a post (and the additional comments) on Poetic Asides, come a few suggestions including the standard stuff (poetry collections)and some other ideas:

  • give a gift subscription to your favorite literary journal and support small presses
  • a framed poem
  • for the DIY crowd, a poetic decoration (poetry trees?)
  • a collection of your own poems (Is that too self-promotional?) Maybe just
  • your own poem on a holiday card
  • or including an appropriate poem with that bottle of wine or gift
