Recession Mama Michele Ashamalla: A lot of kids enjoy receiving books as a present, and pretty much all kids like magazines. Getting something in the mail is still exciting for them, and magazines can be educational, too.

Ranger Rick Magazine
Magazine subscriptions can be a fantastic bargain. Many subscriptions are available on eBay for unbelievably low prices. Magazine subscription sites often have online coupons,and their corresponding cashback can be as high as 30 percent. A couple of the sites that compare magazine subscription rates are

I priced a magazine I liked as a kid: Ranger Rick, which is put out by the National Wildlife Federation. I found a deal for $20 for two years at I didn't find any coupons, but Cashbaq.comoffers 15 percent back on that site, which brings the price down to $17. The National Wildlife Federation's website sells the subscription for $19.95 for just one year! The two-year subscription above saves about $23 off the official subscription price.

A favorite for older kids might be Popular Science or (for kids with learning permits) Car and Driver. I've seen Popular Science subscriptions occasionally come up for as little as a few dollars a year. Search "magazines" on SlickDeals.netto check out some interesting recent offers.

Give the gift of reading ... every month!

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

Valued at approximately $5 million, it perhaps can be best described as 16,000 square feet of paradise. The rear of the Chateau houses two “prayer gardens,” a man-made waterfall, tennis court, amphitheater and a negative-edge pool that offers the illusion of crystal blue waters flowing into a stream.
