It’s that time of year where many of us are scrambling to find the perfect gift for a loved one. Recently, a number of blogs and organizations have been posting gift suggestions for the heritage lovers in your life. Some of my favourite posted so far, include:
- National Trust for Historic Preservation holiday gift guide. This guide provides links to National Trust Historic Sites gift shops and includes a number of unique heritage items. However, be warned that shipping costs vary between gift shops listed and at times is a bit pricey.
- The five Christmas Gifts for Heritage Lovers list proposed by Kayla Jonas over at Adventures in Heritage provides great suggestions for heritage people in the GTA area.
- The ArchivesInfo blog recently included some great suggestions for homemade gifts to create for those who fancy heritage and history.
Additionally, any of the heritage aficionados I know would love:
- A subscription to Canada’s History Magazine. It’s a great read for people inside and outside academia interested in Canadian History.
- An annual membership to a local museum, art gallery, or heritage site.
- For the archival minded: a copy of Closed Stacks, Open Shutters.
