I have found many ways online to earn free magazine subscriptions, such as on websites like recyclebank.com. (For those of you who do not know about Recyclebank, it is a website where you can earn points for learning about ways to recycle, to help protect natural resources, to live greener, etc. Then points can be used to earn rewards, such as magazine subscriptions) Also, I have seen advertised many deals online for deeply discounted magazine subscriptions. Some of the loved ones on my Christmas shopping list are avid readers, who have expressed that they do not need more "stuff." I am considering gifting them a magazine subscription as a part of their Christmas gift. I know that I would not mind receiving a magazine subscription as a gift, if it were to a magazine that I would enjoy reading regularly. Have you ever given magazine subscriptions as gifts? Have you ever received them as gifts? What is your take on subscriptions as gifts? Do you have any other ideas for Christmas gifts to loved ones who already have "too much stuff?"
