'Tis the season
November 1, 2012

If you love a journalist, you know how hard it is to find the perfect gift—they’re so neurotic! So idealistic! Never fear. The following quick-and-dirty holiday gift guide has you covered.

The Nuru Project offers gift certificates for work by photojournalists (above), and donates part of the proceeds to charity.

• “Trust me! I’m a journalist” T-shirt, $27 from Café Press

• Sign up your ink-stained wretch as a volunteer for The News Literacy Project, which is teaching kids to be savvy news consumers.

• Get him/her a pre-paid phone card for the Feel Better Network, a self-esteem hotline where they can chat live with psychologists and life coaches.

Sign up for CJR's daily email

• Make a donation in your journo’s name to the Afghan Women’s Writing Project.

And if you still can’t decide what to get, may we suggest a gift subscription to CJR?

Happy holidays!
