Why a magazine subscription is the perfect gift for you or someone you love

Give the gift of wellbeing.

By Now to Love with Magshop
In today's fast paced life we could all do with an excuse to sit down, pause, and take time for ourselves. And relaxing with a good magazine is the perfect way to do that.
Let's be honest - we live in an ever-connected world. Switching off from technology can be hard to do when at times our phone can seem like it's an extension of our arm. These days we're always contactable, and our work day doesn't end when we leave the office.
The simple act of slowing down and taking time out from the demands of everyday life can have profound effects on our overall stress levels and wellbeing. So what could be better than giving that gift to someone special in your life?
That's what makes a magazine subscription the perfect present for a loved one. But don't just take our word for it. Magshop surveyed a group of readers in New Zealand and 86% of them agreed.
When asked for the one reason that subscriptions are a go-to-gift idea, readers were divided:
  • 22% said it was because the people in their life love magazines
  • 17% thought it was a thoughtful gift because it's ongoing
  • 16% said magazines are a luxury and people don't always treat themselves
  • 11% liked it because it's an easy buy for the gift purchaser
  • 8% agreed a subscription is a great gift for the person with everything
And let's not forget the fact that you'll save up to 48% off the retail cover price.
With Mother's Day coming up, a magazine subscription is the perfect gift to say thanks for everything mum does for you. And there's an extra incentive to purchase a subscription in the lead up, with over $30,000 worth of prizes up for grabs including a trip for 4 to Rarotonga.
