Looking for a great gift for the sports loving child in your life?

If you check most kid’s wish lists I’m sure you will find them loaded with toys and games. These days I’m sure most kids have included hi-tech items on their list too including a smartphone and tablet.

As a parent I do what I can to get gifts off my kid’s wish lists. Depending on what they are and how much they cost I’ll try to get at least a few. I also try and include non-toy items such as books, magazine subscriptions and unique things (once we gave our son a “coupon” for a free trip into NYC which is his favorite place to be).

If you have a child who loves sports you might want to consider getting him/her a subscription to Sports Illustrated Kids magazine.

Sports Illustrated Kids THE magazine for boys and girls who love sports. It presents sports the way kids want to read about them: with great action photos, easy-to-read stories about star athletes, helpful instructional tips from the pros, and humor, comics, and activities. SI Kids is a great way to encourage kids to read, and it has won highest honors from the Association of Educational Publishers and the Parents’ Choice Award.

Growing up I would have never thought to ask “Santa” for a magazine subscription. I used to love to read a lot of those “teeny-bopper” magazines too like Tiger Beat. 🙂 I used to beg my mom for the latest issue month after month. In hindsight I should have just asked for a subscription.

Often subscriptions are a lot cheaper than buying a magazine issue every month. The newsstand prices are always more. I guess that is because you have to give a little to the “middle man” (the store you buy the magazine from). That is why it’s cheaper when you order directly from the publisher via a subscription.

Why should you consider giving SI Kids as a holiday gift this year? Here are a few good reasons why.

Reason #1: It’s the perfect stocking stuffer.

Reason #2:It promotes reading for children who are reluctant readers.

Reason #3:Each issue is full of exciting stories, photos and games that are a perfect distraction while traveling.

Reason #4: No gift wrapping – it’s delivered straight to your door.

Reason #5: It’s the gift that keeps on giving the whole year through

Reason #6: You can receive an entire year in both print AND on your tablet for only $19.95 per year!
