Gifts that help support journalism this year. It's important.


As writers and publishers ourselves, we’re big 1A fans around here. We want to support the important work that journalists do every day as part of an essential free press. If you’re of the same mind, these are some really special gifts to help support journalists and journalism in different ways.

For the right person on your list, it will be an incredible meaningful gesture.
