who we are

Welcome to PRESENT– a fun consumer magazine about gifts and gifting, being distributed exclusively through an elite network of 100+ independent specialty retailers nationwide. Each issue of PRESENT Magazine features the hottest new products across multiple categories – including general gift, home décor, personal care, fashion accessories, gourmet, stationery, partyware and much more, plus lots of creative ideas on how to use these items and great reasons to buy them.

PRESENT Magazine's print edition is published two times a year – Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter – and is distributed in-store for free through select independent specialty gift, home and stationery retailers throughout the U.S. The magazine serves as a "value-added" gift to these retailers' customers – providing another reason to shop at their store. Retailers and their customers are loving it!
