I got the mother-in-law a magazine subscription for Christmas.  I bought this month's issue to wrap up, but does anyone know of a cute way to wrap it up and let her know that she'll be getting a year's subscription?
If anyone is looking for a easy gift, I totally recommend a subscription.  I got one last year and I love getting it every month.  It is also a pretty cheap idea, lots of magazines are less than $20 for a year.

You could wrap it with a cheap calendar with the date of estimated arrival on each month??

I am not sure what kind of subscription it is, but maybe if it is a food magazine you could bake one of the recipes to wrap with it, or wrap a casserole dish with the magazine inside.  Or a craft magazine you can include some supplies or make one of the crafts?  Then there is something more tangible to justify using a box to wrap it in... Or if its a shopping magazine like Lucky or Shop etc, you could cut up pretty shopping bags to wrap it, or just put it in a nice shopping bag for wrapping.

I agree magazine subscriptions are one of the best gifts ever, and they keep giving all year long!

oooOOOooo...I like the calenday idea  Smiley

Last year for Christmas my Dad and his romantic interest gave me gift certificates from Ikea (funny, as he used to make me furniture every year but has found little time for it since obtaining the girlfriend   Wink) and presented them tucked away in an Ikea catalogue.  It was very cool and very surprising.  Perhaps you could do something similar with a handmade card?
