Default Magazine gift

My niece wants a subscription for a magazine for her B-day--I am planning on buying her one of the magazines so she will have something to open--any ideas on how to decorate/wrap it--so it isn't such a blah gift.
Thanks for any suggestions

I don't know how old she is but I had one thought. You could package it with other items she might use/like: flip flops, beach towel, sunscreen

Oh a second thought, buy a second magazine and cut out words from the magazine you will be giving her and put that on the wrapping paper.

Well that is all that has come to mind. Hope this helps!

I recently did this for my mom for her b'day.

I just rolled up the magazine into a tube & tied it with a ribbon, then added a few other things she likes, and put it in one of those "tubs" or baskets you can find at $ stores.

Ideas to go with it in this tub? It totally depends on how old she is....lip gloss, cute notepads/pens (you can get at Mike's $1 spot), candy, etc...

depends on the kind of magazine,
if it is a crafting magazine, then you buy some supplies to go with it, and package together in a box.
or make it a 'color theme' package. what is the dominant color of the mag. cover? then buy little $1 things to coordinate the color.

I just printed out covers from the magazine and then glue them into the card... I don't want to purchase a magazine because one is a renewal, and you never know when the other one will start- so it might be one she will get, you know? So often they send previous months when they start a subscription!!
