Gift It: Subscribe
7-Eleven with my allowance all balled up in my fourth-grader fist and plunk it on the counter in exchange for a fresh copy of Vogue. Now, with magazine sales in decline, subscriptions to certain pubs are even cheaper than the prices I used to pay way back when. I was flipping through the newly relaunched Interview Magazine this weekend and a sub card slipped out that offered 12 issues of the oversize mag for $8. The website says $9.97, but that's still a great deal. Sign up a friend and let them remember you fondly once a month as they flip through Fabien Baron's latest art-directed issue. You can pick up the most current copy and wrap it up so that you don't feel empty handed. Or, you can spring for a back issue on a topic of interest and make them happy now and later.
