Magazines and books help you reconnect with home after moving
As Laurel commented on my post about magazines, subscriptions from your home town or country are a great way to stay connected. One woman I knew received the local, weekly newspaper for years, then when she visited she did not feel like such a stranger.
Although I have stayed domestic (and oh yes, there's a double meaning as this time I am a stay at home spouse!) with my relocation, subscriptions to the same magazines as my mom, in some small way have made me feel closer to her.
So if you have a loved one moving away, perhaps think of a book or a magazine subscription that may let them take a bit of home with them.
Any other ideas?
