Philatelic Gifts for the Holidays

John Finch makes some suggestions on what stamp collectors might like for the holidays on the website.
  • A subscription to Linn’s Stamp News
  • A high value stamp they wouldn’t buy for themselves
  • A new catalog
  • A book with a stamp collecting related subject
  • A vacation to the country they collect
  • A weekend at a big stamp show or exhibition
  • Stock Pages
  • Membership in a philatelic club or organization
  • Time alone with their stamps 
  • The latest catalog for their collecting area.
One suggestion John left off (and my personal favorite..Santa are you listening?) is a stamp related tee-shirt, hat, mug (as shown above), mouse pad, or satchel that are available at
