It beats fruitcake

It beats fruitcake: Washington Post writer Peter Carlson (who has the same last name as Margaret Carlson but may or may not be related to her, I have no idea) suggests magazine subscriptions make a good Christmas gift idea, especially if your loved one is in prison, which I know is the case with many rexblog readers. A couple weeks ago, I posted a photo of a point-of-purchase gift subscription idea that Barnes and Noble is trying this year. However, I would suggest that all your gift-giving subscriptions be purchased at the rexblog Amazon associates store. I am donating all referral fees to some good causes.
