    Why Magpie? Because I like observing these sleek birds with a tapering tail. And like Magpies, I live with the burden of being a 'chatter', even though I believe that I am rather shy, reserved and unobtrusive :).

    TIP: Gift a Magazine Subscription!

    If you are a magazine lover like me, perhaps you can heed the message of this ad and gift your 'significant other' a subscription to the magazine of their interest. That way your gift gets to him/her 12 times in a year :) (yikes, is it sounding corny?)

    Actually, a thoughtful friend once gifted my office a subscription to Reader's Digest, not a magazine our office usually gets and it was something we looked forward to every month. And when I was much younger a friend was gifted 'National Geographic' (very expensive and also difficult to find in the small city I grew up in) and we treated it like something really precious and needless to say, it opened our eyes to a very different and exciting world.

    Here are few helpful links to help you select magazine gifts:
