Express Your Gift Wants Simply
If you’re one of those people who might be described as “difficult to buy for” when it come to the holidays, give your friends and family a break. Tell them about the AOPA Store and give them a few tips as to which of the AOPA items would put a smile on your face.
You won’t break the bank, either, as there are great deals on selected merchandise throughout December. Whether it’s the AOPA Knife (a survival tool that belongs in every airplane); the AOPA Flight Watch (specially priced for the holidays at $149, a $50 reduction); or shirts, jackets, bags, caps and more, you will find something that you want along with ideal gifts for any pilot or aviation enthusiast on your shopping list.
In addition to gift giving, don’t forget the 2011 AOPA Holiday Ornament. These ornaments are fast becoming a tradition – this year’s version features a 1940 Waco. The ornament measures 2-1/2” by 3” and is made from stamped metal for a three-dimensional effect. Think of this as your personal ornament to make a statement on your family holiday tree. This year’s ornament is just $19.95, and it would make a great host/hostess gift for your pilot friends.
When you buy yourself a gift from the AOPA Store, you’re actually giving yourself two gifts. One is the item you purchased, and the second is the proceeds from that sale going to AOPA’s crucial work on behalf of all general aviation pilots. Since the inception of the AOPA product line, more than $500,000 has been raised through these sales.
What’s more, why wander the overheated, overcrowded malls when you can shop from the comfort of your computer?
Procrastinated? Don’t worry. You can shop at the AOPA Store right up to 4:00 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, December 23, 2011, and receive your package in time for Christmas. AOPA’s elves will still be packing and shipping up until then. So it’s not too late to place an order for you or your favorite pilot. Check out the array of terrific products at www.aopastore.com.
