  • Christmas FAQ's
    • How do I order a magazine as a Christmas gift?

      Once you have decided which magazine you would like to order as a Christmas gift, there are two options:

      1. 1- If a specific 'Christmas Gift Subscription Offer' is listed under the magazine, simply select this option and add to your basket.
      2. 2- If there is no specific Christmas Gift offer listed, select the subscription offer you want, add it to your basket, then once in your basket you will be offered the opportunity to select either 'This is a gift. Send next available issue' or 'This is a Christmas gift. Deliver after Christmas'. Ensure you tick the Christmas gift option.

    • When will the Christmas gift subscription start?

      Your gift recipient should receive the first issue (which will be despatched by the publisher) just after Christmas, or early in the New Year (for monthly magazines this may be either the January or February issue).

    • Can I order a magazine.co.uk gift card as a Christmas gift?

      Yes. The recipient of the card can then use it towards buying a subscription to any of the hundreds of different magazines available on magazine.co.uk. Just select the value of the gift card and then choose whether you'd like us to post it to you, so you can wrap it and give it on Christmas day, or if you'd prefer us to post it straight to the gift card recipient with a personalised message.

    • How much is delivery?

      Delivery of all magazine subscriptions listed on magazine.co.uk is FREE. However there is a small delivery charge of £2.99 made for magazine.co.uk gift card orders to cover postage and packing.Yes. The recipient of the card can then use it towards buying a subscription to any of the hundreds of different magazines available on magazine.co.uk. Just select the value of the gift card and then choose whether you'd like us to post it to you, so you can wrap it and give it on Christmas day, or if you'd prefer us to post it straight to the gift card recipient with a personalised message.

    • The Christmas gift subscription I want to order includes a free gift. Who will it be sent to and when?

      The free gift will be sent to you, the person ordering the subscription - and who you enter as the billing name and address (unless specified otherwise within the subscription offer).

      Please note the free gift will be sent separately from the magazine and can take up to 12 weeks to arrive.

    • Do you send notification of the subscription to the recipient?

      We do not send a notification to the recipient of your Christmas gift subscription, but with our FREE Gift Card Creator you can choose from a selection of designs and either print or email a personalised message to send to the recipient of your gift subscription.
