Magazines are a great way to refresh your enthusiasm for your art. With each new issue you get tips and advice, find out about new products and events in the art world. Magazines can also serve as valuable sources of inspiration and can enrich artists' professional lives.
There is a lot of variation in magazine styles, so if you're giving one as a gift you'll want to choose one that suits the recipient's style. Someone who is into contemporary art, especially if they've been to art school, might prefer something that covers more academic styles of art and artists. Likewise, a hobbyist who is developing basic skills and trying out different mediums might enjoy one of the broader hobbyist magazines.
