At BasketsGalore we try to personalise your Gift Baskets as much as possible and one of these ways is by offering you a choice of your favourite magazines. Many of these are printed monthly, but we do also have the weekly gossip & puzzles magazines available for inclusion too.
In Quarter 1 the weekly celebrity gossip mags of Hello/OK raced into the lead so how would they fair in Quarter 2? Again they were the most popular choice according to recent figures, with 1/3 of all customers choosing to include them. Obviously everyone loves a bit of gossip!
After this option the monthlies are sub-divided into magazines for men or for women. The current favourite woman's magazine is Woman & Home which is requested 50% more times than any other. I think that this is because it suits a large range of females both young and older, whereas there are quite a large range of magazines which are more suitable for the younger female. This is shown in the figures with Marie Claire and Home & Garden coming joint second and Women's Health coming third.
As most of our Gift Baskets are sent as presents I believe our customers have to be confident that their choice is appropriate for the occasion and we try to make sure this is the case. It is also possible to order Travel magazines such as Lonely Planet and other weeklies such as Take A Break. Examples of our various magazines for women are found in Alternative Therapies, Me Time and Take it Easy.
Our top requested magazine for males is Top Gear (I wonder it this will continue) obviously for all those 'Boy Racers' out there, followed closely by Men's Health and GQ quite equally. We also offer various hobby magazines which are always popular ie. Golf, Football, Fishing and also National Geographic. Examples of our magazines for men are found in Airborne Antics, Just For Gents and Revitaliser Basket For Him.
Our third category is Baby magazines and these are found either in Pre-Natal Gift Baskets such as Mummy in Waiting or Post-Natal Gift Baskets such as New Mother Survival Basket.
Finally there are magazines suitable for younger girls such as in Teenage Dream.
Some of our gift baskets have the option to include a "Special Request" magazine and we will then do our best to source it or something similar for you locally. This is also an option when creating your own gift basket.
