A Hamil-ton of Gifts for Your A. Ham Fan

How does a geek mom, hunting, last-minute shopping and wrapping,
Dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot on the gift list that she wrote herself, exhausted, in spit-up, find the perfect set of presents?

The ten-dollar easy answer with free shipping —
Get a lot farther not by shopping a lot harder
By shopping a lot smarter . . .

If you’ve got a Hamilton fan in the house, I’ve got you covered (and not with my weak rhymes). Take this opportunity to turn that little musical fan into a history buff. Or just support their budding hip-hop careers. These gift suggestions will help you out, no matter what kind of Hamifan you have.
