Gift-Giving Ideas for History Junkies!

For Throwback Thursday, I figured I’d post up some gift-giving ideas for history junkies like me! Books, of course, are always a great choice! Ask me in comments for recommendations! (<–MA in history/academic/voracious reader) Or, just visit my Goodreads page (

Great History Videos from PBS! http://www.shoppbs.org/category/index.jsp?categoryId=2729308, Including the dramatized Bletchley Circle, which is fabulous! http://www.shoppbs.org/search/index.jsp?kwCatId=&kw=bletchley%20circle&origkw=bletchley+circle&sr=1

A gift membership to a local history museum, historic site, or National Park site. (An example, here http://www.npca.org/ways-to-give/gift-memberships.html, or just stop by your local museum.)

There’s also a National Parks Passport Program: purchase/enroll here: http://www.eparks.com/store/home/9221/Theme-Passport/

Also found this from a blog I follow, so adding it in: http://pacificislandparks.com/2014/12/13/27-destinations-across-the-world/

A gift membership (comes with magazine) for the National Trust for Historic Preservation: http://www.preservationnation.org/

Many travel agencies and other travel sites have information about history-related tours and travel trips for your loved one, life partner, family member, etc.: Here’s an example (yes, you guessed it, to one of my favourite places! *laugh*):  http://www.carnegietouring.co.uk/

Here’s some random sites I found that have some other history-related gift ideas:
