The Financial Times’ Supplements

“How to Spend it” originated as a quarterly magazine and was first distributed with the Financial Times on Saturday 19th November 1994. The magazine is now printed on the first Saturday of every month and there are occasional bonus editions, which are published on a Friday. “How to Spend it” also produces specially themed editions of the magazine from time to time, which accompany the newspaper on a Saturday. Examples of these special editions include “A Passion for Fashion“, “Superior Interiors“, “Travel Unravelled” and the annual “Christmas Unwrapped“. A weekly magazine has also been supplied with the newspaper every Saturday since the launch of “The Financial Times Magazine” on 26th April 2003.

The Financial Times currently features a variety of other regular supplements. “Companies and Markets” is a broadsheet newspaper insert, which is published each weekday. In addition, the “FTfm” tabloid newspaper section provides a weekly review of the fund management industry and is distributed every Monday. The “Appointments” broadsheet section comes with the paper each Thursday. Special Reports are also often provided with the newspaper on any given day.

The Saturday edition of the newspaper was refreshed on 26th April 2008. The “Companies and Markets” supplement merged into the main newspaper, whilst the weekly “Life and Arts“, “House and Home” and “Money” sections were all redesigned. The weekly “Financial Times Magazine” was also re-named the “FT Weekend Magazine“. However, the monthly “How to Spend it” magazine continued to appear as before, along with its occasional special editions.

Great gift ..

Mark Katarsky Trustpilot product review 3 star rating June 18 2021

Purchased the "gift box" but it doesn't come with the plastic sleeve that you get for free if you don't purchase the gift box. The newspaper is very old so it clearly needs it. When you purchase the additional gift box, it should come in the plastic sleeve inside the gift box.
