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!
