My Dad loves learning about American history, and he has really enjoyed getting a letter each month giving him a unique glimpse into various aspects of the country's past. The 6-month subscription is perfect, because I gift it to him for Father's Day, and then 6 months later for Christmas! I've been gifting it for about 4 years now, and he still hasn't had any repeated letters. It has been perfect!
My grandmother hates physical gifts but being able to just keep these in a binder for her to show friends and family has been great. Her bday and Christmas are 6 months apart so I am set on gifts for her
What do you get for the history-loving dad who has everything? History by Mail! Not only does my father love receiving his History by Mail, but I love the phone calls after he receives a new one. Each mailing has been the catalyst for wonderful conversations. We have renewed his subscription for three years now and do not plan to ever stop!
Love this service so much. Kids got it for Mr for Father’s Day last year and I told them to repeat for this year.
I purchased History by Mail for my Mom that loves history and reading about it.
I use some of these documents in my Government and History classes to have student analyze primary source documents and to give them a bit of perspective on a different time.
I received a subscription for Christmas a few years ago. I continued to renew it. I look forward to my letters every month.
Got this for my husband for his birthday. Very hard person to shop for. Best gift ever! Both of us look forward to receiving it every month. Just renewed for another year.
Loved my first letter and learned a lot from it
I am a history buff, so I enjoy every issue of History By Mail, but I also then send it along to a family member who may have a specific interest in the particular document, especially to adult grandchildren. The historical and anecdotal material are an interesting way to share and lets receiving parties know you're thinking of them. Thank you, History By Mail.
I got my subscription as a birthday present, and I’m very impressed so far!
It was a perfect birthday gift for a retired U.S History Teacher!
The site was easy to use and the service is awesome. My son got me a subscription for my Birthday. I really enjoy getting the glimpse back into the past through the personal notes, letters and memorabilia that comes every month. So much so, I renewed on my own. Great Job everyone
The recipient of this gift absolutely loves it! The quality is exceptional.
I recently purchased history by mail for my dad as a gift and it’s been so fun to receive! We both love it and the staff has been extremely helpful and answered so quick! So excited to see what’s in the next letter!!
