Treat your beer-obsessed brother to a Christmas gift that keeps on giving with a Craft Beer Club membership. Each membership includes 12 beers per month delivered to their door, hailing from all the top microbreweries in America. You can treat him to a monthly, every-other-month or quarterly club shipment. Plus, he’ll receive three bonus gifts with the first shipment.
Spoil the sommelier in your life with a membership to the Wine of the Month Club. The acclaimed company has a variety of wine gift memberships to choose from that vary based on budget, bottle quantity and origin of the wine. Some memberships to consider for your wine lover include the Bordeaux Wine Series, Rose Wine Series, Nape Wine Series or our pick, the Classic Series membership. The first shipment comes with two to six bottles of wine, a sleek black gift box, a food and cheese pairing guide, wine pouring discs and informative articles about the wine presented.
Get the avid home chef out of their cooking rut – for good. A Blue Apron membership takes the chore out of everyday food prep and delivers mouthwatering results, every time. Spoil them with a gift card for a meal or wine credit to get them started on their culinary journey.
Best Memberships for Homebodies
There’s no better Christmas gift than the gift of unlimited streaming access to Discovery’s robust (and addicting!) portfolio of networks, including HGTV, Food Network, ID, OWN, TLC, Animal Planet, Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, Asian Food Network, Magnolia Network and more. A discovery+ subscription is failproof, offering endless hours of entertainment for all ages and interests. Plus, monthly streaming starts at $4.99 (i.e., less than you spend on coffee per week). For gifting purposes, though, we suggest the six- or 12-month membership so your recipient can curl up and binge-watch their favorite shows all winter long.
There are few luxuries that compare to the free same-day, one-day or two-day delivery enjoyed by Amazon Prime members. Prime has loads of benefits beyond the speedy deliveries, too. Members have access to Prime Gaming, Prime Reading, Prime Music, Amazon Household and Prime Wardrobe that allows members to try on clothes before buying and return what doesn’t work.
Give the gamer in your life 12 months of fun with annual membership for PlayStation Plus. Just don’t be surprised if they mysteriously disappear from the holiday table to their game, never to be seen again until it’s time for them to tell you goodbye at the end of the weekend.
Best Memberships for Fitness Junkies
A ClassPass gift card makes a failproof gift for your up-for-anything friend who loves to explore new ways to exercise. Unlike traditional gym-specific memberships with limited group fitness programs and iron-clad contracts, ClassPass allows members to locate, book and test out local fitness studios via the ClassPass app with zero long-term commitment. ClassPass memberships are on a month-to-month basis, allowing members to change, freeze or cancel their account at any moment. Getting them started with a gift card will help build up their credits and is a great way to help them dive headfirst into a plethora of fitness and wellness offerings.

Best Memberships for Lifelong Students
Quench their thirst for knowledge and self-improvement with a MasterClass Membership.

Members gain access to the program’s tried-and-true system of seeing, hearing, speaking, reading and writing to learn the language of their choice.
An Audible subscription will earn your major brownie points with your on-the-go parent, best friend or partner. Each membership includes 12 credits to listen to any title within the premium selection. Plus, members gain access to thousands of audiobooks, guided programs and endless podcasts on every topic imaginable. Your loved one will appreciate the entertainment in the carpool line or their evening run around the neighborhood.
Best Memberships for Beauty Gurus
Splurge on your designer-obsessed friend or spouse with a Vivrelle membership. The luxury club allows members to rent one or two designer handbags per month from a selection of head-turning brands like Chanel, Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Fendi, Saint Laurent and more. Members return and replace their rented bags each month, maintaining an enviable wardrobe without splurging on a single bag of their own. Sign up for a monthly membership or pre-pay for a three, six or 12-month membership in advance.
Spoil the fashionista in your life with a Stitch Fix gift card. Stitch Fix makes an ideal gift for anyone on your list, but we especially love the idea of gifting this to someone that's entering a new phase in their life, starting a new career or pursuing their personal style for the first time. Stitch Fix offers a personalized shopping experience, with or without expert stylists, to leave shoppers feeling more confident in their wardrobe than ever before.
