Top Picks for Magazine Subscription Gifts and Reviews from Readers


1.      For the Literary Mom: Readers Digest Magazine

Readers Digest

I started reading Reader’s Digest when I was about 8 years old. My grandmother subscribed and I always read hers while my family and I visited her in Queens. Then my father subscribed at home, and I continued reading. When I Got married and moved out I subscribed and continued reading. Now I'm in an apartment and still subscribe. I’m guessing it's over 60 years.

What I love most about Readers Digest is that you keep politics out of your articles, no racism, no bias, no religion. it’s written for all of us to enjoy.

Thank you for keeping readers digest just the way it is. Pure, simple, informative, funny, and with stories we can all learn from.”

2. For the Wellness Enthusiast: Psychology Today Magazine

Psychology Today

 “I once had a therapist who was very dismissive about PT. It was one of many of her opinions that caused me to lose all respect for her. I have read PT for decades now. I understand that psychology, like many other subjects, is not an exact science, but I appreciate reading about a variety of studies and opinions. I may not always agree with the conclusions or the methodology, but I very much appreciate the fact that someone somewhere is trying to make sense of human behavior. Food for thought is a well-enjoyed meal.’ Review by Amy F 



3. For the Bird and Nature Lover:  Birds & Blooms.

Birds & Blooms

I've been reading Birds & Blooms for years and always find it interesting. The photos are amazing and there is always something new, no matter how long you've been birding or gardening. They are like the National Geographic. They NEVER get thrown out. Only after being well-read by all family members will, they finally be handed over to a trusted friend or relative. Love that magazine!” Review by Renate S



4. For the Foodie: Taste of Home Magazine

Taste of Home

Taste of Home is my favorite "go-to" magazine for delicious, no-fuss food. I recently made the grand prize winner pie. I can see why it is the grand prize winner. Now, whenever, the family gathers (with masks and social distancing) they beg for the Biscoff cookie creme pie.” Review by Claudia T. 



5. For the Wine Aficionado: Food & Wine Magazine

Food & Wine 

The recipes have continued to keep me cooking and inviting friends over for dinner. Recipes with accompanying wine recommendations are especially helpful. The background stories of cooks and contributors are interesting, and they keep me reading.” Review by Douglas S.
