A stack of newsprint every weekend is nice. But a subscription to the Sunday Times is also a great solution to the problem of the dormant, underused iPad — the gift from last year that your mom, dad, grandmother or grandfather never quite connected with.
A Sunday-only subscription still gets you full digital access, meaning the complete daily edition as well as generous archive access reaching back to 1851 (trawling old NYTs is a pastime of mine). The digital subscription is compatible with any device that has an NYT app, be it an Android tablet or an iPhone, and allows multiple users to have access, so you can piggyback off your own gift. Win-win, and they deliver nationally, too.
