I buy this product repeatedly.
As always, "Ideals" magazine does not disappoint. To me, it is well worth the purchase price.I gave it as a gift to someone who, like myself, grew of in the 1950s and early 1960s. It always brings back good memories.

sharla r on Oct 3, 2019
I get one of these Ideals Christmas books each year. I am absolutely amazed at the additional charges for a book that only costs $14.99. A $2.99 handling charge on a booklet is excessive and your charges for taxes is way out of line, I live in Virginia and I know what our sales taxes are and you charge me too much. We willl have to look at other sources the next time we get ready to make a catalog purchase.

Rosemary B on Nov 11, 2017
IDEALS has been a Christmas 'must have' tradition for decades, in our family. When my children were little, we would gather around our fireplace and read some of it every evening. We did this till they were grown. Mother had a subscription to IDEALS for years! Sad to say, that is no longer possible. We miss it very much. I was so excited when I found it was still available. Would be nice if it was by subscription, again! All of the IDEALS are worth reading but the Christmas issue is a necessity!
ALICEA S on Nov 1, 2017

Is this the 2014 edition?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I haven't received the order yet...I am hoping it will be the 2014 edition. If not, back it will go! It's a shame that the cover, as pictured, doesn't show the year, nor does the description in the catalog. I am confident, however, that MK would not offer last year's edition. :)
How often is Ideal Magazine published?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It used to be 6 times a year
Mother's Day
But in the last 10 years all I have been
Able to find is their Christmas issue.
I'm not even sure they have subscriptions anymore!
Hope that helped - dina
Is this the 2016 issue?
What is the publication year?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have not purchased the 2016 issue as yet. But, I always get my ideals books from miles kimball--cheaper than anywhere else and they are such good gifts.
