Magazines for Seniors

There are many ways we like to show our elderly loved ones how much we care, but when the days of giving flowers and going out for dinner become just a bit too routine, it’s time to shake things up a bit. A magazine subscription is a great way to connect with them, and no I’m not just talking about AARP.

Magazines can offer your loved ones so much. Not only are they a great source of reading material, but there’s a magazine that fits everyone’s personality. Whether they enjoy gardening, cooking, home building, traveling, the list goes on.
For all the gardeners out there I would recommend:

Birds & Blooms

Birds and Blooms Magazine

This magazine features everything one would want to know about backyard plants, and creatures (birds, butterflies, etc.). It features columns such as the Plant Doctor, and gives great insider tips for both large and small garden projects.

Fine Gardening

Fine Gardening Magazine

The name speaks for itself. Readers can learn all about what’s in their backyard, and how to create unique design ideas; complete with tips and techniques for how to get the best looking garden on the block.

For our beloved home builders, you can never go wrong with The Family Handyman, or HGTV.

Family Handyman

family handyman Magazine

Family Handyman showcases everything from building a new deck, to lawn care, along with smaller project such as installing a faucet.


hgtv Magazine

Just like the show, this magazine is perfect for those who love to remodel and decorate their home and garden with new ideas; with more fun tips and tricks that you don’t get to see on TV!

And to those who love traveling, leave it to Travel + Leisure!

Travel + Leisure

travel leisure
This magazine is perfect for those who love to vacation. Readers get all the exclusive details on where to travel next to, including the best places to stay, shop, eat, and how you can even save money doing it!

So whether your loved one’s hobbies include globe hopping, gardening, quilting. (Yes, there’s a magazine for that too! See: Quiltmaker), or even if they just enjoy reading and looking at the pictures why not send a little surprise their way!
