Politics Gift Guide

Get a Lege Up

Texas Tribune Membership

$50 and up ($10, students)

We've already recommended this gift once – last year, shortly after former Texas Monthly Editor-in-Chief/President Evan Smith launched his grand idea for a membership-supported, nonprofit website dedicated to state politics. But now the gift is even more timely, with the Tribune about to throw itself into the grinding flurry of its first Lege session. The Capitol junkies in your life will no doubt have the site bookmarked in their browsers. Financial support through membership will not only get them special perks (a special rate for Tribune events, among other things) but will also help ensure that the Trib continues to provide that fix. See www.texastribune.org.
