Some recent gift-wrapping ideas from Magazines.com include:
Create a Subscription Ornament On a color printer, print the cover of your gift subscription from magazines.com and tape the image to a new ornament. Then, you can hang the ornament on the tree or wrap it up like a gift!
Hand Over the Keys Pick up a great key ring featuring a favorite car of your car-lover from your local car dealer. Print the magazine cover from Magazines.com, attach it to card stock and trim to size. Punch a hole in the top, and thread it through the key ring.
Fits Like a Glove Purchase a pair of garden or work gloves and some small tools such as garden shears, weeding tools, a screwdriver, etc. Also, pick up a copy of the magazine you’ve given at your local magazine newsstand. Place the tools together in one glove, and roll up the magazine in the other. Use the gloves as the gift bag, or place them into a gift bag surrounded by tissue paper.
