What to buy the journalist in your life | A holiday gift guide



Let’s face it, you’re a busy news person. You wear 1,000 hats and your desk is overflowing with tasks not yet finished. There is no time for leaving your desk, finding parking, browsing the holiday windows or shopping. But, at the end of the day, you still have to put on one more hat (the Santa one) to get your office mates, and especially your editor, something for the holidays.

Luckily, your dear friends at Muck Rack (that’s us!) understand the plight and have put together a little gift guide for the journalists in your life. Promise we won’t tell if some of these end up being gifts to yourself.

Here’s what to buy if…

And now a list from us (for us):

If you’re looking for more traditional fare (world’s best mugs and such), check out the list from Squidoo. MediaBistro blog 10,000 words also has some nice suggestions. 

We want to thank Jake Adelstein, Megan Stephenson, Gregory Galant, Alyssa DanigelisNatan Edelsburg, and Lauren Kelley for their help in putting this together. 

If you have any other gifts to add, feel free to send them to delia [at] muckrack [dot] com.
