Subscription Gift Ideas

Are you looking for gift ideas for the upcoming holiday season? Have you run through all of your best ideas in past years and are looking for something new? This year consider giving a gift subscription. There are many affordable options that cater to a wide range of ages and interests. Regardless of who you are shopping for, you will be able to find something that fits each recipient. Consider the following five subscription ideas for this holiday season.

1. Magazine subscription

There are numerous magazine subscriptions available that make great gifts. Consider hobbies and interests of each gift recipient. Don’t discount the gift of a magazine with a professional bent as well. For example, if someone has just begun a career in teaching, a subscription to The Mailbox (Starts at $29.95 for 1 year) or YES! magazine (Starts at $20) may be much appreciated.

A TV and movie subscription for one of these sites will provide hours of entertainment. The Hulu Kids ($7.99 per month) subscription is a perfect choice for families with young children in the house.
