4 Thoughtful Ways to Present a Magazine Gift Subscription

Magazine Gift Subscription Holiday Gift Ideas Christmas Shopping Magazine Presentation Wrap IdeasGiving a magazine subscription to someone on your holiday list this year, but not sure how to wrap it? All it takes is a little imagination, and we’re getting you started with these four ideas!

Sure, magazine subscriptions make great gifts because you can find something for everyone—even the hard-to-buy-for—and because your recipient can open them year ‘round. But just how do you wrap one?

There’s plenty of ways to do that, too, and we’ve already shared five ways to creatively wrap your magazine gift subscription—and even five more here. But how to you appropriately capture the experience and inspiration that magazines deliver? You can with these four ways to present a magazine subscription—and take the wrapping to a whole new level.

Make a recipe or craft from the magazine subscription you are giving to your recipient, along with a preview copy of the title you purchase from the newsstand. If you’re not particularly crafty or adept in the kitchen, you can buy items like garden tools to go with Better Homes & Gardens, a yarn organizer to go with Crochet Today!, or a nice baking dish or kitchen gadget to go with Food Network Magazine that your gift will put to good use.

Buy the hottest new item, whether it’s makeup or a fashion accessory or the latest acclaimed DVD or CD that’s featured in the magazine you’re giving. Granted, this means you must know your recipient’s tastes well, but consider the latest scarf trend to go with a subscription to InStyle, the must-have DVD or CD—or your recipient’s fave—to go with Entertainment Weekly or Rolling Stone respectively.

Give a locally-made item that celebrates your recipient’s hometown, region or favorite travel destination to go with a magazine subscription devoted to the same. Think Garden & Gun plus any of its featured Southern-made gifts, Sunset magazine and a recommended wine from the region, or a set of barbecue sauces with Texas Monthly. Even a gift connected to the city will do the trick, like the recording of a favorite musical with New York magazine.

Turn curling up with a magazine into a comfy experience by gifting all the necessities to make it cozy. A gourmet coffee plus a coffee mug and a plush throw or socks will make your recipient look forward to an afternoon with any gift subscription. These items will make reading magazines that regularly feature longer articles, like Reader’s Digest, National Geographic, The Atlantic, or The New Yorker, an especially enjoyable event.

There’s no wrong way to give a magazine this holiday season, but with a little creativity and thought, you can make it an introduction to the educational and entertaining experience receiving a magazine gift subscription can be!

Favorite Thanksgiving Magazine Covers Food Magazines Holiday Food

Our Favorite Thanksgiving Magazine Covers

Thanksgiving Magazine Covers Favorite Covers Holiday Food Cooking MagazinesCan’t wait for turkey? Prefer pecan pie instead? We’ll whet your appetite for the Thanksgiving feast by counting down our favorite November food magazine covers.

By now, most of you are either busy preparing the Thanksgiving meal or traveling to gather with family and friends around one (or maybe several). Even as you count your many blessings or treasure time spent with loved ones, the holiday feast typically takes center stage; after all, it’s generally what gathers us all together in the first place.

So as you cook and bake or fly the friendly skies to your holiday destination, we thought we’d help get you in the spirit—of the Thanksgiving feast anyway—with our six favorite November cooking magazine covers.

Southern Living: Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be complete without a pecan pie, but this creation takes it new a new level. Practically a work of art, this Salted Caramel-Chocolate Pecan Pie is definitely worthy of the November cover and would be a welcome addition to any table.

EatingWell: Whole or jellied, cranberries usually play second fiddle to the turkey and dressing that are the focal point of the Thanksgiving spread, so it’s nice to see them get their due on this simple, yet elegant November/December cover.

Martha Stewart Living: Martha’s covers always have a flair for the artistic, and for the carved turkey on the November cover, it’s is all about the presentation. She suggests fanning out the cut pieces of meat, garnishing with fruits and herbs, and serving on a pretty platter.

Bon Appetit: Now this is a sight we like to see on Thanksgiving: the presentation of the centerpiece of the holiday meal. This November cover celebrates a holiday moment that’s bound to be repeated again and again in homes across the country, but it never gets old.

Taste of the South: Yes, the turkey is important, but let’s also give thanks for the delicious sides that will be served on plenty of Southern tables this year. Favorites like Green Bean Casserole, Cornbread Dressing, and Sweet Potato Casserole are just as beloved as the turkey—and this cover recognizes that.

Cooking With Paula Deen: The next best thing to turkey and all the trimmings has to be the dessert selection, and this cover features three drool-worthy options—Salted Caramel Pumpkin Pie, Buttermilk Pie with Glazed Cranberries, and Chocolate Cream Pie with Peanut Butter Topping.

Easy Thanksgiving Home Decor

11 Easy Thanksgiving Home Décor Ideas from Pinterest

Easy Thanksgiving Home DecorJust a week until the big day and your home could use a festive touch. Even if you don’t have much time, you’ll be thankful that these Thanksgiving decor ideas we pulled from Pinterest are so easy!

Feeling like Thanksgiving has already passed you by? You’re not alone. The pumpkins, scarecrows, and assorted fall décor seems to have been replaced just a little too soon with everything you can imagine (and more) for decking the halls for Christmas.

Before you give up or give in to the crush of red and green, these are some easy ways you can add a timely and festive touch to your home for Thanksgiving. You’ll find plenty in home magazines, but these we snagged from Pinterest are probably your best bet if you’re feeling pressed for time.

Flowers and Nuts: Fill clear vase with acorns, chestnuts, berries, or some other appropriate filler, then top with a fall-colored or seasonal flower. If you forgo the flower, add an elegant touch by adding burlap and tying a ribbon around it.

Thanksgiving Placemat: Save those fancy placemats for Christmas and opt for these simple coverings made of brown paper or a recycled bag. Before or after the meal, ask everyone around the table to fill out a few of the things they are thankful for and discuss over dinner.

Painted Acorns: Dressing up your home for Thanksgiving could be as simple as going for a walk around your year. You can even get the kids to help with this project, then use the finished product to display in clear vases or other pretty decorative dishes.

Cinnamon Candles: Tie cinnamon sticks around a candle to release a sweet-smelling scent that can take your home from Thanksgiving right into Christmas.

Thankful Tree: Prepare a “thankful tree” to display in your home, then ask guests to share their blessings and attach them to the branches of the tree. It functions as both festive décor and a conversation starter.

Turkey Apple Dip: Speaking of functional, who says your appetizers or treats can’t serve a dual purpose? We love the fun presentation of this chocolate fruit dip and sliced apples to look like a turkey!

Pilgrim Hats: If you prefer an even more chocolatey treat, try these cute Pilgrim Hats. Chocolate wafer cookies topped with a mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Attach the two with frosting and add a decorative buckle.

Candles and Wine Glasses: Put the wine glasses you’re not using to good use. Turn them over, add a seasonal filler (like maybe those painted acorns), and top with a votive candle for an interesting tablescape.

Pumpkins: Placing pumpkins on the table adds an instant festive touch, but make them look even more elegant by displaying them on candlesticks, serving bowls, and small pedestal dishes.

Chalkboard: If you’ve already got a chalkboard, this one’s super easy. Get creative with artwork or seasonal quotes, menus, or a welcome for your guests.

Pine Cone Garland: This is another idea that can take your home from Thanksgiving into Christmas. Attach ribbon to pine cones and hang in front of a window or mantel for a new twist on garland.
