It is December 23rd, just two days before Christmas and you’re probably preparing to visit family or cleaning the house for when they come visit you. The holiday decorations are all in place. And now it’s time to relax.
Except, you just realized you didn’t buy ANYTHING for some relatives and some other very special people in your life. Thankfully we live in the era on online shopping and you can buy subscription services, a gift that can be enjoyed year round and will continually remind your recipient of your thoughtfulness. The fact that you bought it Dec 23rd is something they never need to know.
Know someone who has a birthday in December? Combination gifts just make you look cheap and thoughtless, unless it’s a subscription service. For the fashionista in your life you have a lot of great choices.
If you’re on a budget, magazines always make a great choice. Most publications have 2-for-specials during December so you can pick out a free one for yourself! Many magazines cost as little as $12 for a full year subscription. And if you are Fashion Reverie follower, you know the staff at Fashion Reverie loves a good fashion magazine. Just Remember in this age of digital domination, print publications are quickly going the way of the dinosaur, so pick a fashion publication that will be around for a while. Fashion Reverie’s picks are Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, or Marie Claire, if you are a traditionalist. But, if you want something a bit more edgy, Nylon, Love, Essential Homme, Wonderland, and 360 magazines are great options.
