The coolest magazines, books and awesome range of designer cards.

As you can probably tell from the name, Mag Nation sells an amazing selection of magazines from near and far. Perhaps what they are least known for are their array of hardcover books. There is no denying that it is the magazines that make this place a must visit, but before you head there next remember to keep in mind that little shelf to the right. There are most definately some treasures waiting to be discovered.

It is a ritual for me on weekends to pop into Mag Nation to look over the hundreds if magazine titles they get in and see if anything new piques my interest. Favourites include Apartamento, Plant Journal, Another Man, The Gentlewoman, Elle Decoration and British Vogue.

My favourite shop in Ponsonby - always excellent, friendly and knowledgeable service, great music, awesome selection of mags and super cool stationery and books too. My one stop shop to buy gifts! Highly recommended - worth a visit even if you live far away x

Mag Nation is one of my happy places, and judging by the stock that flies off the shelf there each week I am clearly not alone! They simply have the biggest, best and most inspiring selection of magazines in town, as well as some of the most informed and affable staff. And if you can’t find it there they can usually help you find out why not and where you can, or even order it in for you if at all humanly possible. A top spot for a reason!

I really like magazines. There’s something about there glossy pages, exciting content and somewhat throwaway nature that enthralls me. Mag Nation has an extensive range of magazines, from fashion, culture, woman’s interests to cars and hunting they have it all. Keep a look out for air freighted volumes as the shop gets a bunch of products not found elsewhere in Auckland. I’m also a sucker for Moleskin notepads which they stock in abundance!

Set up a subscription to your giftee's favourite mag, or find them a new favourite! You can do this through a magazine store like Mag Nation, or direct.

A good place to go if you're after a hard to find magazine - if this place doesn't have it, doubtful anywhere else would be! Also good for other gift ideas.

Absolutely lovely, great oldies music and two beautiful girls working on Sunday! Willing to go the extra mile to help me pick a present for my son too. Thanks!

Helpful staff, interesting range with some you don’t see in other stores but missing others. Good place to look for something specific tho
