As we all begin to think about what to give for the upcoming holidays, gifting seems to be going in a new direction. Gift cards are commonplace. We can order via Amazon Prime and have something arrive, wrapped in 2 days. Boxes of carefully edited items arrive via subscription services. I’ll always enjoy giving something personalized or customized, but that does seem old school these days.
Something that seems old school (based on the content) but is definitely current (based on it’s delivery) are digital magazines. And, in that category, I’ve long admired Sweet Paul and his folksy approach. The photographs and the inspiration are only the level that a professional food and prop stylist can provide, and it becomes aspirational. I’ve signed myself up for a year’s worth of issues and at $9.99 it occurred to me that this is a great gift idea for the aspiring DIY cook and crafter in your circle.
The holiday issue will be available on Nov 8th, so if you’re looking for inspiration in that category, you might just need to gift yourself. If nothing else, what a great stocking stuffer! Just print out one of his covers and tie it up with a string.
That’s giving in the digital age! And, if old school is more your lane, yes, you can subscribe to the paper version and savor turning every page!

Looks like fantastic inspiration! I have a lot of creative people in my life who I think would love a gift like this.
It is nice to know that we have so many options for giving. I'm old school myself, but do love how this digital age makes it easier to match the right gift with the right person.
Here's to the giving season! Thanks for the idea, Elizabeth! XOXO

I must admit that I'm a fan of sending gift cards especially if I'm having a hard time to think what would be the perfect gift. I'll just choose their fave clothing brand, buy the card online and presto, I have a present for them. Not unique though I know they will like it.
