Take a Break

My elderly mother emigrated to the US about 10 years ago and before leaving was always an avid reader of Take a Break. I ordered this subscription as a a birthday gift and she absolutely loves it. It's a little piece of home that makes her day every time she receives her copy in the mail. Delivery has been seamless, and every copy was received . Unique magazines update me weekly when an issue is being dispatched, and they arrive in good condition. We are going to renew her subscription, and hope we can get a discount code? Thank you!

Take a break arrives in an excellent condition mainly on the Friday. There is plenty to read the reviews use everyday ingredients which are easily obtainable, but the puzzles are mainly what I subscribe to the magazine for.

Celia - 09 March 2023


Take a Break

I've read Take A Break right from the start. O now subscribe to it thru Unique Magazines. I love most of the readers stories and have been moved to tears some weeks. I like the cookery pages but I feel that every now and then you could do a feature on cooking traditional food which is suitable for freezing and doesn't cost too much. I think that would appeal to readers on their own. Horoscopes are fun to read then there's the competitions. I enter every week but so far been unlucky. I usually pass my magazines on to my friend after I've finished as she's a big reader like me. I'll keep buying this magazine for as long as I'm able to. I look forward to receiving my copy every week.

Review of Take a Break magazine

Tired and weary! Muscles ache! Time to sit down with my ‘Take a Break’. Real life stories, puzzles galore, problem pages and so much more... Win some prizes; cook some grub or learn how to reuse an old butter tub. Whatever your mood and whatever your scene, your sure to love this great magazine.

Carolyn Philip - 29 June 2011


Review of Take a Break magazine

Take a Break is a magazine for those who don't want to have to think in any depth about a subject, but like true life stories. The stories invariably involve someone losing weight, ditching their fiance (or being ditched) at the altar and going off with the vicar, or having a child who gets sick and dies. The stories involving the children invariably affect me and I end up crying. The others tend to be somewhat predictable. You do wonder about the 60 year olds who think that a handsome 25 year old from a 3rd world country is genuinely interested in them (rather than their money) and then turn out to be surprised (and turn to Take A Break) when the said 25 year old fleeces them of their live savings, and turns out to have a local wife and kids on the side. The hints and tips by readers are excellent and have proved to be very useful, and the recipe section is invariably very good as well. As soon as we get the magazine my two year old turns to the food pages and says loudly "yum, yum". The magazine is an enjoyable read for a busy mum of two, but needs a little more variety and a few less children dying to make it a great magazine.

Clare Seal - 25 June 2011


Review of Take a Break magazine

This is a great magazine simply for the competitions available. There are plenty and a good variety. I try to avoid the real life stories though as they can be a little depressing!!

DURHAMAM - 23 June 2011


Review of Take a Break magazine

I read Take a Break, it is nice to put my feet up with a cuppa and a couple of biscuits and literally take a break, I like the competions, and have a laugh at the funny items, and it is also nice to find some of my worries are nothing compared to others.

Sharon Payne - 07 June 2011


Review of Take a Break magazine

I like Take a Break magazine. It has a bit of everything including, puzzles, advice, fashion, and true life stories which,to be honest makes me appreciate my own life. It also gives easy to follow recipes. I like the way it is set out, and love to have a go at the puzzles whilst having a tea break. It also gives advice on medical problems which I find very informative.

Stacey Boyle - 08 May 2011


Review of Take a Break magazine

This magazine has something for every age group and taste. From the real life articles featuring people we all know and can relate to. The funny readers pictures. Fabulous puzzles and competitions and lastly readers tips. How could you not love this publication? Every time I read it I find myself saying to friends and family 'Did you read about this story in Take A break?' or sharing a money saving tip. When you take a break and pick this up, you can't put it down until you've read it cover to cover!!! Recommend it to everyone.

Kelly Hooper - 23 March 2011


Review of Take a Break magazine

Each issue is a glossy array of vibrant coloured pictures, fun, mind teasing puzzles and cleverly written stories designed to pull on your emotions and keep you reading till the very end. You can also find out whats going to happen in your imminent future through the weekly horoscope and have a giggle at the antics of readers husbands worthy of the Take a Break stocks! There are plenty of good prizes to be won which can be entered online, via text, over the phone and by good old fashioned post. You are also welcome to submit your letters and photos for the readers letters, each letter published is worthy of a £10 payment and the star letter earning a princly £25! Not bad for a few minutes of your time.
