Christmas Gift Guide: Best Children’s Magazines

I was planning to hold on with my Christmas gift posts until the first of November but I have so many beautiful things we have been reviewing lately and am itching to tell you about and so many lovely gift ideas have been suggested to us that I am caving in!

I am starting this year’s gift idea blog series with a less obvious Christmas present idea for a child, as I am sure there will be plenty of toy gift guides out there to pick and choose from!

One of the things I will be getting Emma this year is a magazine subscription, as this is the sort of present I know she would really appreciate and it is something that will keep on giving long after the festive wrapping paper has been scrunched up and recycled and the mince pies been eaten!

Emma is an inquisitive (very nearly!) six year old who LOVES facts and I think she would love getting the ECO Kids (the magazine I have in mind for her) in the post every four weeks. The wealth of information she will have at her fingertips will make for interesting reading sessions at bedtime and who knows, perhaps a future career in biology or science!

The annual subscription is £29.99 but you can purchase the trial offer of 4 issues for £9.99.

If reading this blog post has left you tempted and wondering which magazines are most popular with children at the moment, you can check the below infographic to get a better idea:

best-kids-magazines-thumbP.S.- the website has an amazing host of grown up magazines as well which would work perfectly as gifts for the bookworm reader of the family and which cater for a whole array of tastes and interests (oh, hello, there, Jamie Oliver!) so do have a peep at the grown up section as well, will you?

What magazine subscription would tempt your little ones(or you!) most?

Disclaimer: Emma’s magazine subscription has very generously been offered to us in exchange for this review but the opinions expressed in this blog post are truthful and entirely our own.


  1. I have to admit I do love reading a good magazine, at the moment I am subscribed to one for colouring – love relaxing and just drifting away as I colour. x

  2. I didn’t even know some of these magazines existed. i think I will treat my kids to a subscription this Christmas🙂

    This is a great idea for Christmas – little treat every month! I love getting one for me! Kaz x

  4. I dont think i have looked at magazine since my teens in all honesty. I don’t feel any magazines currently reach out to me personally.
