Magazine subscriptions are a little luxury that makes a gift last all year. Every month when a copy arrives, there is a little glow knowing you can curl up and read about your favorite topic. And that is the other wonderful aspect of this, there is something for everyone. The other wonderful aspect is that most can be found for less then $15 for the first year and many for as low as $5. Plan ahead for the holidays or surprise a friend on their birthday.
