The end of the year is fast approaching, a time that excites most, but also overwhelms many. One of the best ways to take the stress out of present-giving is being able to save time, avoid crowds and give something catered to a person’s personality and interests all in one go. A magazine subscription ticks all these boxes, and thankfully can be done last minute too. Here’s why we love this gift idea:
It really is the gift that keeps giving all year round.
Every time that person receives their magazine, they’ll feel special, and that’s all thanks to you! While most other Christmas gifts are only opened once a year, a magazine arrives at regular intervals year-round and it’s like enjoying a new present every time it shows up in the mailbox.
It is the best choice for someone who ‘has everything’.
Everyone has someone who is a bit more of a challenge to buy for than others, so a magazine subscription can deliver new ideas with every issue, which makes it a good choice—provided the recipient doesn’t already get it.
It can easily be fitted into any budget.
Whatever your price point, there’s typically a suitable magazine subscription to fit. If you’re feeling the pinch, opt for a shorter subscription or spluirge with a 2 year!
You don’t have to worry about wrapping.
Since you can’t quite go and pick it up at the store and wrap it, you get a free pass on having to come up with decorative wrapping part – one less thing to think about!
It can make a powerful impact and change someone’s lifestyle.
Whether you know a bourgeoning chef, photographer, crafter, artist, or someone who needs that mindfulness boost, you could help turn their dreams into reality, or help them make positive life changes with the right magazine subscription.
It makes a great last-minute gift.
It’s Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, and you’ve overlooked someone. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Purchasing a magazine subscription last minute is a no-brainer. In a few simple clicks, your Christmas shopping is done!
Remember, Christmas should be a time of joy; spending time with loved ones, making memories and hopefully having time off from work to relax and recharge for the year ahead, but if you tend to let the gift-giving side of the holidays take over, it’s vital for you to step back, make time for yourself and reassess the big picture and the things that truly matter in your life. Once you’ve achieved this calmer sense of mindfulness, then you can take on the task of budgeting, list making, and gift purchasing with a renewed perspective.
Whether you’re a more frenzied Christmas shopper or have already managed to instil mindfulness into your wellbeing practises, it is essential for all women to breathe, and make time for themselves. In this modern age, even the most intrinsic parts of us are taking a back seat, so it is more important than ever to strive for a happier and healthier body, mind and soul. With a new year just around the corner, why not aspire (and inspire others), to embrace a calmer, more relaxed and more mindful you? We encourage you to steer away from perceiving new year changes as resolutions, as this automatically has the connotation of broken promises. After all, our health and wellbeing shouldn’t be a one-off consideration made on a whim but rather a long-term life adjustment, one where we ‘do’ less and ‘be’ more.
Give the gift of mindfulness all year round!
