This is a featured giveaway

YouGov research by Readly, the digital magazine service, reveals our top Christmas wishes and clues to the ideal last-minute Christmas pressie. A Readly subscription, with over 4500 digital magazines, would be a success under any Christmas tree this year.

  1. Meaningful time is important to us: Time is the most valuable thing we have according to Readly’s survey, two-thirds of us (64%) would like more meaningful time this Christmas.
  2. We like to get active during Christmas: One in three of us (38%) wish for “something to use” as a Christmas present and a quarter (24%) would like “something to do”. 
  3. Magazine reading is popular this Christmas: According to the research, magazine reading is the second most popular activity on smartphones this Christmas.  When considering meaningful screen time the number one activity we can do this Christmas is talking and texting on our phones (55%), reading newspapers and magazines (37%) and listening to music (36%).

You can grab a Readly gift subscription for the person you love right up to Christmas day, go to and choose the duration of the gift voucher.

    This is such an awesome app! I’ve used it in the past myself and it saves so much money especially when you are buying weekly magazines, I would love to have access again.

    I’ve had readly before and found it good, but I just didn’t use it enough to keep it as I didn’t find the time to read, but it’s such a good idea for people who love magazines x

    Oh this is such a good idea. Especially for travel and heavy books. I definitely want to read more next year so ease of reading is a good plan.

  • Jennifer Gladwin December 22, 2019 at 9:30 am

    This sounds perfect for when we’re travelling with it being so compact. It would make a lovely gift too.

  • Rebecca Smith December 22, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    I do love magazines but don’t always manage to get out and get them so this sounds like a fantastic and worthwhile subscription! A great gift idea.

  • Mellissa December 24, 2019 at 10:15 am

    I’ve never thought of giving a gift like this. What a brilliant idea and better for the environment than all the paper a magazine subscription will normally create.
