Frank Shirley I despise you! Ever since National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation came out in 1989 and you presented Clark Griswold his Jelly of the Month membership instead of his bonus, of the Month Clubs have been given a reputation as a lousy gift. To show you the error of your ways without the kidnapping and exploding sewage, here are a couple of reasons why of the month clubs make a great gift.
1.) Of the Month Clubs are a great way for you to give a present that reminds the recipient every month about you. So when she receives her Beer/Wine of the Month, who do you think they will be dialing up to drink it with? Forget Twitter and Facebook, that is true Social Networking.
2.) “Variety’s the very spice of life That gives it all its flavour.” William Cowper (1731-1800) that right I am pitching everything and a 18th century writer at you. Tired of your catchup? Get a different catchup every month with a catchup of the month subscription because change is good and so is Honey Balsamic Ketchup.
3.) Of the Month Clubs aren’t just for Father’s Day anymore! Of the Month Clubs can be given whenever you need too. Whether you’re trying to give an incredible Birthday present or just looking to brighten up someone’s state of mind by sending a few months of tasty fruits, a monthly gift club can fit your gift giving needs.
4.) There are some incredibly crazy of the month gifts around now that will make you look like a Gift Giving Sherpa. Things like Meat of the Month and Whiskey of the Month are great but what about the Monthly Astronaut Autograph Club. Don’t believe me Google it.
5.) Discover new things with these new of the month gifts from companies like BirchBox or Foodzie. So weather it’s liquor or food these and other of the month clubs memberships will have you on the cutting edge of whatever you want to be on the cutting edge of.
6.) It is one of the few gifts you should allow yourself. Why should everyone on your Christmas list have all the fun? You deserve it too.
Mr. Shirley do not be ashamed to give that Jelly of the Month Gift Club, as long as it’s unique like a locally made Jelly or a not found in America variety. Wait, instead of jelly, why not a Christmas Ornament of the Month I hear the Griswolds will probably need it after your last visit.
