Happy Holidays! We have once again collected a wide variety of gift suggestions from numerous TidBITS readers, so read on if you’re still trying to find the perfect gift for your Macintosh-using friends and relatives (or just hoping to beef up your own list at the last minute). See you in 2001!
Welcome to our 2000 Holiday Gift issue, which is brimming with great gift ideas from TidBITS readers via TidBITS Talk. Most are related to the Mac, as you might expect, but Macintosh users have wide-ranging interests, so we've also included a number of ideas that fit into the category of "For the Macintosh-Minded." Other categories are Hardware, Software, Games, and Miscellaneous, plus additional digital camera recommendations from Arthur Bleich
