I love a good magazine and especially enjoy reading one in my living room with coffee (surprise) and my cats, Bonnie and Clyde by my side. I know that makes me sound like a crazy cat lady, but that’s my reality.

A gift subscription to “Real Simple” is one of the things on my wish list this year. Check out several ways to get magazine subscriptions for cheap for someone on your holiday gift list. Rachel at sweet savings ‘n’ cravings blog has a few great ideas including several magazines for just $2 for a full year (this price is only good through Thanksgiving)!

Just make a homemade card telling the person about the magazine. Wrap it in a fancy box and you’re done! Total cost: $2 plus wrapping. That’s a fancy deal! I will be posting lots of gift ideas through the holidays. If you have any fancy holiday gift ideas, send an e-mail to

Live the fancy life today!
