It feels like just yesterday we were beginning fall—my favorite time of year. Now, October is almost over, and you all know what that means: It’s one month closer to the holiday season! My, how time flies.
With the holiday season comes get-togethers with family and friends, cooking, cooking, and more cooking, shopping, and tons of holiday cheer.
In this busy time of year, sometimes you just need something quick and easy. Be prepared this season and get ahead of the Christmas shopping madness by purchasing online. From today until Sunday at midnight, we will be running a 20% off sale on all the products found on our Hoffman Media store. Use the code FRIENDS at checkout to get the discount.
With just a click of your computer mouse, any of the lovely items on our store can be yours! Save big on back issues, books, special issues, and more. I always love taking advantage of a good sale.

For those of you who absolutely love artisan baking, Bake from Scratch’s cookbook is the go-to resource to keep handy in your kitchen. Once you take a look at all of the gorgeous baked goods, you’ll want to get busy on your next baking project.
Paula Deen’s new book, At the Southern Table with Paula Deen, features entrées, casseroles, appetizers, and desserts. Paula celebrates true Southern hospitality with 150 recipes, including 30 all-new dishes.
Our Director of Editorial Operations Brooke Bell released Cast-Iron Baking: Scratch Recipes for Your Favorite Skillet last month, and boy, there are many recipes I’d like to try!

And if cooking isn’t for you, we have plenty of other magazines to suit your fancy! The Cottage Journal published their Holiday Home Special Issue earlier this month and one of their books, French Style with Vintage Finds, is fascinating!
There are so many good publications in our store, I couldn’t possibly list them all. Just browse our collections and you’ll see!
What’s your favorite Christmas gift to give?
Items related to tea for my lady friends… tea, books, magazines, Hoffman special issues, assorted tea accoutrements…
My favorite gift to give are books by Former White House Chief Florist, Laura Dowling. She has two books, one is Floral Diplomacy and her brand new book, Christmas at the White House. Books can be found in bookstores or amazon. Nothing like seeing the White House decorated for Christmas, it is magical and reading her Christmas book will take you on the tour. Both books are table top books and lovely.
