Gift orders

Magazine subscriptions make great gifts
We have a huge selection of magazines to choose from on our gift ideas page here. Gift subscriptions are easy to order. During the checkout process you will simply be prompted to provide the delivery address for your gift recipient.

Estimated delivery dates for the first issue in a gift subscription
Except at Christmas, when we use best efforts to ensure that our publisher partners start all gift subscriptions after Christmas, your gift subscription will start with the next available issue.

As magazine delivery is handled directly by the publishers themselves, unfortunately does not have access to specific delivery schedules for any individual publication. But as a rough guide, the delivery date of the first issue in their subscription will generally fall within the following industry standard timescales:

  • Weekly publications - between two and four weeks from order
  • Monthly publications - between two and six weeks from order
  • Bi-monthly publications - between four and eight weeks from order

Notify the recipient of your gift using our free gift card creator...
With our gift card creator, you can choose from a selection of designs and either print or email a personalised message to the recipient of your gift.

... or purchase one of our great value printed greeting cards
When placing your order, you can also purchase a printed greetings card together with your magazine, and we will post this directly to you.

£20, £30 and £40 gift card packs are available
If you’re uncertain which magazine to give, we suggest you buy one of our beautifully presented magazine gift card packs. The recipient can then use the card value towards buying a subscription to any of the hundreds of magazines we have available.

You can order £20, £30 or £40 denominations, and select whether you’d like us to post it directly to you, so you can wrap it and give it on the day, or if you’d prefer us to post it straight to the recipient with your personalised message.

Please note we can only deliver gift card packs to addresses within the UK (we send by Royal Mail 1st Class) and a postage and handling fee of £2.99 is added to all orders. Full gift card terms and conditions can be found here.

How to use a gift card
You can redeem the value of a gift card against all magazine subscriptions, except Direct Debit offers. Once you select your magazine and subscription offer, you'll then be prompted at the checkout to enter the gift code and the PIN on the card. Full gift card terms and conditions can be found here.
