Gift idea: Magazine Subscription
I have always wanted a magazine subscription as a gift, always. Unfortunately no one has ever given me one...yet. Maybe after reading this someone will?
With only 10 days left till Christmas and the madness of the shops right now, I think the perfect gift for the fashion obsessed is a magazine subscription which you can buy online. Want to see a smile wider than the equator? Get someone a sub to their fave mag, seriously, who wouldn't love that? My dream subs to put in my fab new Love and Luck satchel are all Australian/NZ titles as I prefer to support Australian talent and designers when spending my $ on magazines. I also think we have some of the best titles out there as it is anyway! My top 5 are:
Firstly there is No magazine, the NZ based title that is setting the world on fire with their cool editorials, always with a cheeky edge. Next up is Fallen magazine, which, is one of the few titles based in Melbourne, and as such has a place in my heart. Thirdly is the ever popular Aussie mag Russh which I have been a fan of since issue 7 as you can see in the above photo. The only issues I've missed since then are from when I was living overseas and couldn't find it. Yen magazine has been a fave since the very 1st issue (which sits proudly on my shelf). I guess the styling is most similar to my aesthetic, a sorta colourful Japanesey vibe. Lastly we have Oyster, another long time fave, each issue is a visual feast of fashion and art, I never miss an issue.
Magnation have kindly given my readers a 10% off code for all subscriptions until the 25th of December. Just use FSHNHYLY at the checkout.
Good luck beating the crowds this year, I've done 90% of my Christmas shopping online and I can't recommend it enough. Just set and forget, haha. xxx
