They are not always super cheap, but sometimes you can find a great deal on a magazine gift subscription. Often, for $20 or less, you can purchase a gift subscription for someone you love. This might be a great family gift at Christmas time or birthday gift for a child. It is the gift that keeps on giving all year long.
The National Wildlife Federation has some great magazines for kids. Our personal favorite for toddlers is Wild Animal Baby, which comes in a board book-type cover. Highlights also has some great kids magazines available. Amazon is a great place to find out about magazines and sometimes has special deals or offers. Be sure, however, that you follow through on your gift and check with the recipient to make sure they have received their first copy.
