With the Christmas holiday season approaching, many of us are thinking about gifts and cards. Why not add a bit of a Scouting touch to gift giving and greeting cards? There are some great places to start:
1. Your local Scout Shops
Many Scout Shops are making an extra effort this year. You may find they are wiling to do gift wrapping and that they may have special deals. Check you Council’s Twitter feed to see what they are doing or just drop in and see what they have.
2. Philmont’s Tooth of Time Traders
They are running a special called “The 12 days of Philmont” with special offers daily. Check out the deals at http://www.toothoftimetraders.com/philmont/dept.asp?dept_id=7315. Tuesday’s deals have been posted and you’ll find the deal sweetened with a free Tablerone candy bar for each order on November 29 along with free shipping on orders over $150.
3. BSA’s Licensed Products at Zazzle
You can find wonderful Scouting themed Christmas Cards and Scouting holiday postage stamps at http://www.zazzle.com/boyscouts/holiday+gifts
Through December 1, Scoutstuff.org is offering free shipping on orders of $75 or more. Check them out at http://scoutstuff.org.
