Cheap holiday gift ideas: $5 magazine subscriptions from Amazon

UPDATE: TIME magazine just went on sale for $15 for a year-long subscription. Price is good Wednesday, Dec. 8, 2009 only!

Magazines are one of my favorite gifts because the recipient gets a monthly reminder of you!

Right now Amazon is having a huge magazine sale with tons of mags under $5 and plenty of other that have an instant $10 kickback when you check out.

$5 subscriptions through Dec. 12:
Cosmo
Seventeen
Popular Mechanics
SmartMoney
Good Housekeeping

Bazaar
Town & Country
Veranda
