By now, we're all well-accustomed to the art of the virtual hang. From weddings to classes and (unfortunately) holidays.
The holidays will likely again include social distancing, mask-wearing and not being able to see as many family members as usual, thanks to the rising Omicron variant across the globe. But there are still some special gifts you can send virtually to spread holiday cheer.
If you're stumped on what to get a family member or friend this year — and want to skip giving a gift card for the third year in a row — a MasterClass subscription is truly the best. It gets delivered straight to their inbox so you don't have to worry about shipping. Wins all around!
Shop: MasterClass Gift Subscription, $180 per year (plus one free membership)
With travel and other experiences on hold this year, people are craving to learn, which is why MasterClass has recently seen a surge of users. The service saw a 10-times increase in demand compared to 2019, according to a rep for the company.
People at all levels can choose from hundreds of classes taught by successful entrepreneurs, designers, chefs, actresses and more. The classes span across food, arts, lifestyle, writing, sports and gaming, business, music, science and more. There really is something for everyone.
For aspiring writers, there's a creative writing class with Margaret Atwood. If you want to up your personal style, Tan France tells you how to build a capsule wardrobe. And for those who are wanting to embrace more cooking at home, Gordon Ramsey's cooking class dives into how to take your cooking skills to the next level.
In each class, there are about 20 lessons, which will take about 10 minutes per lesson. Plus, you'll also receive an in-depth, downloadable PDF workbook that goes along with the class. And new classes are added monthly, so you'll never be bored.
Not only that, but you can watch your lessons anytime, anywhere using your smartphone, personal computer or several streaming devices, including Apple TV, Amazon FireTV or Roku.
How do you sign up for MasterClass subscription or give it as a gift?
If you're wanting to give a MasterClass subscription as a gift, you can sign up through the annual membership option, which is $180 for the year. Through this option, you can gift to a friend or family member via their email address — and you can even choose what day it's delivered.
If you're wanting to try out the service yourself, you can select the monthly plan, which is $15 per month. While you can cancel anytime, with so many great courses to choose from, you or your friends will be hooked.
