Last-Minute Gifts For Stamp Collectors

The Stamp Collecting Report, I'm Lloyd de Vries. 

It's hard to pick a gift for a specialist, but here are some fairly safe bets that you can 
still get in time for Christmas.

How about a subscription to a newspaper? For hard-core collectors, there's Linn's Stamp News, 
published weekly. Linn's -- spelled L-I-N-N-S -- has both a Web site and a toll-free number. 
A little lighter is Stamp Collector, a bi-weekly, published by Krause -- K-R-A-U-S-E -- and 
Krause also has a Web site and toll-free number.

Scott Stamp Monthly and American Philatelist are both monthly magazines. Go to 
Scott-Online-dot-com or stamps-dot-org.

Bigger post offices should have The Postal Service Guide to U-S Stamps, as well as other gift

Then there's a PayPal gift certificate, for use on eBay. Stamp collectors are crazy about eBay. 
You can choose amounts from five dollars to two hundred. 

And that's Stamp Collecting this week. 

I'm Lloyd de Vries, CBS News. 

<Of course, you can also buy gift certificates at the online booksellers, and tell the 
recipient to buy something related to stamp collecting.>
