Flipboard Magazines to Make Holiday Shopping More Fun

Inside Flipboard / December 6, 2013


It’s been a few weeks since we launched the ability to add products to your Flipboard magazines, and it’s just a few weeks until Christmas. That makes this a perfect time to look at some of the shoppable magazines and catalogs Flipboard MagMakers have created.

Pro Tip: These magazines look good on the web, but they look best in Flipboard’s mobile apps.


Everyone loves bacon. Everyone. Everywhere. Some people may not eat bacon for one reason or another, but it’s hard to resist, which is why this “Bacon-licious Gift Guide” by Beki Winchel and Amy Vernon is a great place to find fun, bacon-themed holiday gifts for just about any human with a pulse — from bacon salted caramels to bacon-scented incense.



Everyone may love bacon, but the Middle Ages are an acquired taste. Still, the idea of an entire magazine devoted to Middle Ages-inspired products and images is actually rather brilliant. (A gothic toilet paper holder? Seriously? “Who knew?!”) For that very special knight or druid on your shopping list, check out Linda Bernstein’s “Shop the Middle Ages”  to find medieval gift ideas fit for King Arthur himself.



For the aging hipster in your life, “Old Guys Fashion” takes a light-hearted approach to an awkward problem: Staying in style when you no longer possess the always-fashionable gift of youth. MagMaker Rob Fuge shows how its done, with his collection of “smart casual ideas for old guys.”



Finally, if you prefer to play it  safe with your gift-giving strategy, you can simply see what gifts are selling well this year. Vernon Niven makes that easy with his “Hottest-Selling Christmas Gifts of 2013” catalog, which presents a selection of the most popular gifts for men, women and children.

Have fun, and happy shopping.
