It’s that time of year! The holidays are upon us and, with them, the pressure to procure the right gift for our loved ones. We’d like to offer our assistance to those desiring to shop small, shop local, and shop mindfully.
With this in mind, here is a helpful list of gift suggestions that might just fit the bill. And we wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season and happy new year.
Yours, the ZYZZYVA team
For the Poet: Even us ardent fans of fiction have a friend or family member who is most moved by poetry and verse. Fortunately, we have just the issue for you. Issue 123, from earlier this year, put a distinct spotlight on poetry. Featuring new work from up-and-coming talent alongside esteemed favorites, we guarantee that the poet in your life will find much to enjoy within its pages. And check out that cover!
For the Fashionable: The only thing better than taking ZYZZYVA on the go with you is transporting it in one of our stylish and soft tote bags. Bonus: letting everyone on BART know that you Always Get the Last Word. You can certainly order the tote bag on its own, but might we also recommend our 3-issue & Tote Bag Subscription bundle?
For the Reader: Some gifts are timeless for good reason. We think the lover of the written word in your life will enjoy a Gift Subscription to the journal. It’s terrific timing, too, as we’ve just released our new Winter Issue, including a holiday-themed novella by Matthew McIntosh and art by Ukrainian sculptor Natasha Dikareva. And if you already have your gift-giving duties covered, perhaps you’ll consider making a donation in honor of a loved one. Every gift over $100 is acknowledged on our masthead, both online and in print—and includes a three-issue subscription*. Just let us know whose name we should credit.
*Any amount over the cost of a 3 issue sub ($35) is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
