Need a gift for the person who really has everything? Want to give a gift that is supposed to be thrown (or recycled) when they are finished with it? Give a magazine subscription! It’s really the perfect gift: simple, personal, disposable and keeps giving throughout the year. To give the recipient something to open, buy a current issue at the store and wrap it up!
Eversave is offering $26 worth of magazine subscriptions through Blue Dolphin Magazines for just $12 through tomorrow night (12/3). I bet you could cross two people off your Christmas list with the one Eversave voucher.
Need some ideas? Here are some of our favorite magazines:
- Real Simple — because I always want more of both things in my life
- Sunset — cool articles & beautiful photography of NW gardens, shops, restaurants, homes, destinations, etc.
- Better Homes & Gardens — it allows me to indulge in house-envy without gawking in people’s windows (which annoys my husband) while on walks around our neighborhood
- Taste of Home — I can enjoy it in one sitting with a 3rd-grade level attention span
- Cuisine at Home — my favorite cooking magazine; nice, clean layout & photography
- Fine Cooking — also delish, but a bit fancier/more involved on the ingredients & recipes
- Kitplanes — excellent magazine for people who like, of all things, kitplanes
- Popular Mechanics — popular with mechanics, like my husband
- Family Fun — great kids’ crafts
- Taste of Home — a second vote; must be good
- Healthy Cooking — yummy
- Clean Eating — talks about whole-foods eating
- Backpacker — perfect for the dad who wishes he had enough time to backpack
- Outside — again, an opportunity to dream, right?
Brittany & Angela’s picks:
OK, Brittany & I are errily alike — easily adaptable, so neither of us have any “favorites,” other than All You. Here are some cool looking kid’s magazines. They are not cheap, but with the $26 Eversave voucher, you’re giving the kid something to open and maybe they’ll learn something in the process.
- National Geographic Little Kids
- Ladybug — designed for toddlers, preschoolers and early readers
- DC Super Friends — all about superheros (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc), sans the scantily-clad ladies
- YUM Food & Fun for Kids — recipes and kitchen activities for kids (may just be one more thing to make me feel like a slacker-mom)
Now it’s your turn: What are your favorite magazines? What would your family members love to receive?
