On The Menu: Mediabistro’s Holiday Gift Guide

mmm_2-3.gif

We hate the term “last-minute gifts,” because it makes us feel nervous about being unprepared for the rapidly approaching holiday, especially since we just started our Christmas shopping yesterday. But for those of you who still need some gift recommendations (like us) today’s mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu is one to catch.

This morning, hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven offered some gift ideas for every media loving person on you list.

Jason provided some options for publishing related gifts, like a subscription to the New York Review of Books or a copy of one of the biggest books of the year, Pride, Prejudice and Zombies. Matt had some ideas for the advertising professional in your life, like The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Marketing Basics in paperback. Why paperback you might ask? “Because it’s only $4.39 on Amazon.com,” Matt said.

List in for more gift ideas, as well as a discussion about the 50 biggest Twitter trending topics of 2009. You can listen to all the past podcasts at BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call in at 646-929-0321.
