Holiday gift ideas for stamp collectors

Stamp columnist Joseph Bakes of the Newark, NJ. Star-Ledger suggests some gift ideas for stamp collectors in an article that appeared in yesterday's paper.

Among the suggestions... "The American Philatelic Society -- -- offers gift memberships, a "Famous U.S. Stamps" calendar for 2007, collecting supplies and books, such as the Encyclopedia of United States Stamps and Stamp Collecting."

The National Postal Museum -- -- a division of the Smithsonian Institution, also offers gift memberships.

For someone who has begun a collection, a thoughtful and useful gift would be a subscription to a stamp publications, such as the weekly Linn's Stamp News (, available through the mail or online.

Other ideas that come to my mind include a gift certificate from Subway Stamp Shop, a gift subscription to Scott Stamp Monthly or Gibbons Stamp Monthly,or perhaps the best idea of all...COLD HARD CASH!
