Give a Magazine Gift Subscription for Christmas

Updated on April 19, 2013

Magazine Gift Subscriptions - A great idea for Christmas - Something for Everyone

A magazine gift subscription makes a brilliant Christmas present that lasts for months. There's something for everyone and their are some amazing deals available. National Geographic for granny and grandad, Food Network for Mom, Wired for Dad, PlayStation Magazine for your nephew, Disney FamilyFun for your niece, you get the idea!

I often buy magazine subscriptions as Christmas presents. I buy them for my Nan who doesn't get out as much as she used to and appreciates something to read. For my sister who can't afford to buy magazines very often but loves them. For my Dad who loves cars. For my partner who loves Movies. My kids will be getting National Geographic Little Kids (and I'll be reading it too :-).

I love the idea of a Christmas present that lasts all year. And you can easily renew it for the following year making it a great ongoing Christmas gift. If you buy a gift subscription early enough then the recipient can get it by Christmas. If you leave it until the last minute you can buy the current copy of the magazine and give that to them along with details of the subscription - this works well as a last minute Christmas gift that doesn't look last minute!
