There’s nothing worse than showing up to a holiday party where you know basically no one. But showing up and having to make small talk with people you know but haven’t seen in a while isn’t all that great, either.
And let’s be real: no one has time to stay on top of the million different news outlets reporting stories on every topic, from sports to fashion. So what if you could access all the information you need to talk to just about anyone and any holiday party you find yourself at this season? Texture and its digital magazine titles are your go-to for whatever holiday socializing throws at you.
Heading to a party that will be filled with your partner’s business-obsessed colleagues? Swipe through Texture’s Business & Finance titles, and you’ll have more talking points than you’ll need. Canadian Business, for instance, has a rundown of 2016’s best innovators, including the Frank + Oak co-founders, and the biggest lessons 2016 taught the world of business. Entrepreneur magazine has a huge list of the biggest business trends for 2017, including the best business schools and how one guy got a hold on the popcorn market. Fast Company not only has interesting reads about Facebook employees, Bumble and fashion week, but 125 secrets from the most productive people like Kevin Hart and Shonda Rhimes.
If you know the party’s going to be populated by fitness buffs, Texture has you covered. Best Health has an article on the rise of probiotics in skincare, tricks for jumpstarting your immune system, and hangover cures for the day after the party. Runner’s Magazine has a super intuitive marathon guide for runs in 2017, how to maximize your calories for the perfect run, and the best hi-tech gear for your runs. Yoga Journal is packed with great ideas for building strength, releasing tension, and seven tricks that lead to a happier life.
If you’re behind on your sports knowledge, or just serious lacking any knowledge in that department, Texture has more than 30 titles to get you up to speed. Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the Year is LeBron James, so take in that issue and you’ll have tons to say about the star of basketball. The latest issue of Sportsnet Magazine revolves around another sporting superstar: Connor McDavid, the young Canadian hockey player. Aside from McDavid’s contribution to the Edmonton Oilers, you can also take a look at the best sports photos of the year. Ski Magazine has a great rundown of the best ski gear of 2016, as well as a feature on skier Lindsey Vonn, and an update on Sun Valley Resort, which has seen resurgence over the past few years.
Thinking that the only thing that could make this better is a sweet deal? You’re in luck! Texture has a 30-day free trial, so you can keep reading, for free, well into the New Year. Happy holidays and happy chatting!
