5 Long-Lasting Holiday Gifts
1. Magazine Subscription
2. Subscription Box
3. Annual Membership to MasterClass
Another great activity for people who are staying home these days is a MasterClass membership. MasterClass features classes from leading experts in their fields, and it’s an amazing way to expand your horizons. Class topics cover business, arts & entertainment, food, music, science & tech and more. There are currently over 90 classes given by names you recognize, including Judd Apatow, Serena Williams, Judy Blume, and Sara Blakely. An annual membership is only $180, and the site is currently offering a promotion in which you can get two membership passes for the price of one.
4. Costco Membership
Even during a pandemic, people need to buy food, sundries, over-the-counter-meds, electronics, clothing, appliances, jewelry, baby gear and so much more. We don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that Costco has everything you can possibly need under one (very large) roof. And for those who prefer to stay in, Costco offers deliveries. Membership costs either $60 or $120 a year, and most people make the expense back in savings. The only thing to check before purchasing this incredible membership gift is whether there’s a Costco near the person you’re giving it to.
5. Life Insurance
Life insurance is a gift that lasts not only a year, but many. In some cases, it will last a lifetime. There are two main types of life insurance — term and whole. Term life insurance is purchased for a specific number of years, while whole is purchased and remains valid for the policyholder’s entire lifetime. People usually buy life insurance for close family members, but it’s not the kind of gift that you want to be a surprise. Before buying it, talk with your loved one about their needs and which type would be best for them. The cost will depend on each person’s specific situation, the type of life insurance, and the amount of coverage.
