1. I Read Banned Books Sweater
I put this Lingua Franca x Judy Blume Forever sweater in my cart and then take it out again every few days. It’s absolutely terrific, but obviously pricey. For that special Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret-loving someone in your life who needs a splurge-y gift, this is it.
2. Delayed Gratification Magazine
Our friends over at storytelling event series Back Pocket Media told us about this publication recently, “the world’s first Slow Journalism magazine,” and we’ve been obsessed ever since. This beautiful quarterly publication aims to linger on stories longer than the 24/7 news cycle allows. Uniquely designed with articles that surprise.
