Stuck for Christmas Presents?

Text settings

As y'all know, this website offers plenty of content for free. That's the Spectator's choice and one I support (not that they ask me about these things). But even website content costs money and while online advertising is good news it's not nearly as lucrative, in general, as adverts in the print edition. So, a small Christmas suggestion: if you enjoy the website and you're stuck for a present for someone or simply feel like treating yourself why not subscribe to the Spectator?

There are a number of attractive offers, including a 12 weeks for £12 option. You get all the goodness of the magazine and the warm glow of satisfaction that comes from supporting this website too and, in a tiny fashion, helping me. Not that I'm on any subscription-related commission or anything like that. But in general if more people subscribed to the magazine this would be a much better world. Subscribe for a full year and not only do you save 38% on the cover price but you receive an off-setting bribe of half a dozen bottles of decent wine too.

So, subscribe! And while you're at it, give a gift subscription too...
