I'm almost afraid to suggest this on a book board , but what about magazine subscriptions?

I like the idea of the magazine subscription- maybe you could get each one something different and if they live near anough to each other they can swap them around:)

For a book recommendation-
I am finishing up Anderson Cooper's new book "Dispatches from the Edge"

In his memoir he talks about the tsunami in Asia, famine in Niger, wars of Somalia and Iraq, and of course the closer to home devestation of Hurricane Katrina. Interwoven in all of these is his personal experiences with losing a father and a brother. I think it meets some of your criteria.

Bill Bryson's non-fiction travel books are funny & informative.
