Last-Minute Gifts for the Grammar Enthusiast
The grammar enthusiasts in your life deserve some recognition. They keep you in the know whether you like it or not. They’re always quick with a “their, there, they’re” reminder, a nudge toward an oxford comma, and a scribble of an apostrophe when you’ve mixed up “its” and “it’s.” Where would we be without our grammar-fiend friends? We’d be in a muddle of sentences and misspellings, that’s where—and we’d never use semi-colons correctly. That’s why they deserve some gratitude. So thank your grammar-alert friends with a selection of gifts chosen just for them this year. From quotation mark earrings to a one-of-a-kind cross-stitch, there’s something here for each and every one of your red pen-wielding friends who have always been editors-at-heart (and who can solve a mean grammar quiz in no time at all).
