Magazine gift subscriptions are a great last minute gift idea but also for no contact presents because 2020…
It’s likely that the stitcher in your life subscribes to at least one magazine of their main hobby. But they typically have other interests that don’t get as much attention. But that is where you come in 🙂
Options for announcing your gift subscription.
Honestly it doesn’t even matter if it is last minute, actually giving a magazine gift subscription can be kind of difficult since it comes later but…
- Most of the subscription services themselves will have an option you can select to let the recipient know you gave them a gift. Usually via email but some will also via the post office.
- You can find free printable gift cards. The best Google search term seem to be “printable gift certificates”. Canva has some free gift certificate templates. And Pinterest pinner Ashley Blair has gathered some printable gift certificates to a pin board. Not all are free tho.
- And you can certainly send or give a traditional greeting card.
If you do make your own gift announcement card, you might want to include:
- Announcement: A Gift for You!
- Magazine name
- Subscription length
- Date of first issue
- Closing sentiment
Where to shop for magazine subscriptions.
There are certainly the big retailers like Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Or magazine websites where that is all they do: buyscriptions.com, magazines.com, discountmags.com.
Ooh, bonus idea. A gift subscription to online classes! Annie’s has the most widely available needlework video classes. So check out Annie’s Creative Studio as a gift for your stitcher!
Now on to the magazines!
Cross-stitch magazines are fairly focused.
A bonus idea for your cross-stitcher! The Gift of Stitching magazine. No really, that’s what is called. An Australian magazine that stopped publishing but has released all of its back issues for various price points, but access to the whole thing is on sale for $39.95!
Not as many needlepoint magazines as there used to be 🙁
Some of us want to learn to get past the chain stitch.
If they like cross-stitch chances are they love quilting.
Embroidery, Wool Applique, Sewing, Crochet, Knitting
These magazines will have a variety of needlework content.
Ideas for decorating with all of that stitchy goodness.
