Every year, the closer we get to Christmas, I am asked “What do you want for Christmas?”. No one ever seems to know what to buy for me, and I tend to answer with “I will be happy with whatever you would like to get for me”. I can never seem to think of anything I want or need when asked, so each year it is a repeat of the last. This year I have decided that I am going to help out my fellow genealogists and family historians by posting some great genealogy gift ideas for Christmas.
Personalized genealogy gifts
I have always appreciated a good personalized gift, especially if it deals with my family or genealogy.
This cute personalized family tree blanket is perfect or all ages of genealogists. It can hold up to 25 names and is sure to keep your loved one warm on cold days.
Genealogy jewelry as Christmas gifts
This beautiful necklace is made by NameCoins and is cut by hand from a coin. The great news is this is not their only design so you can continue shopping for the rest of the family while you are there. Check out their other gorgeous creations here.
Gifts for genealogy buffs
Genealogists spend a lot of time in libraries and archives, and we take a lot of notes. This padfolio writing pad makes sure you have a place to keep organized while you are getting lost in all of those genealogy records.
Here is an option that accommodates iPad users:
Genealogists can never have too many binders and this vintage book style binder will blend in perfectly on the bookshelf with all of their family history books without looking like a plain old 3 ring binder.
Where there are genealogist, there is coffee or tea. This funny warning mug is perfect for the job.
Genealogy gift cards
Subscriptions to genealogy sites can get costly and you might not know what subscriptions your genealogist uses. The solution? Get them a preloaded credit card style gift card so that they can continue with their favorite subscriptions.
No matter what you buy your family historian for Christmas, I am sure they will love it. After all, Christmas is about family, and us genealogists are all about family. Have a great holiday season everyone!
