Gifts with Practical Usefulness

We hope you have completed your Christmas shopping, but if you have not, you might consider gifts with practical usefulness.  They are appreciated, and they remind the recipient of your thoughtfulness many times after the holiday season.  From the December 13, 1923 Skidmore News from Skidmore, Missouri (click to enlarge):
