SUBSCRIPTION POV #19
By Morten Suhr Hansen
I hope you are all having some wonderful festive days this week! For many, it has been a lovely break from a hectic everyday life and also – a special year. Time for the family, reading, and relaxing. But for some, it is also a time embossed by the corona crisis that has been running since 2020. But no matter if you’re part of the first or the second group, the holidays are a time for giving – and subscription geeks like us love gifts that last for a long time.
Therefore, we’ve collected five delayed presents that you can use with your partner, your friends, your pet – or just for yourself! Get inspired for a year of new experiences right here:
Masterclass – Learn from the best
A simple international subscription concept that is just too good not to mention, is the American Masterclass that offers online courses within an array of exciting hobbies and professions. Courses taught by the biggest masters on Earth. Here, you can learn how to play chess from Gary Kasparov, take a cooking class with Gordon Ramsey or learn how to play the drums from Ringo Star.
A course typically consists of 10 video lessons and is supplemented by written handbooks. The perfect gift for the one that has everything or to the inquisitive type. Masterclass costs around 220 dollars for a year and right now, they are offering a 2-for-1 subscription, so you can give one to yourself and someone you love.
Rent The Runway – The fashion subscription
Another sharing economy subscription service has found its way to the wishlist. Rent The Runway offers wonderful fashion items for women in one subscription. For $135 dollars a month, you can rent 8 items every month and send them back, when you’re done using them.
The website offers top-shelf brands like Helmut Lang, Gucci & ROTATE Birger Christensen
Audible – An affordable audiobook service
Audiobooks and e-books are the hit of 2021! The whole world is streaming books like never before and the market for audiobook services has grown in the past year, where new and exciting services have joined the market.
Usually, there are local audiobook services in any country, but international services like Storytel and Audible are still very favorable. An Audible subscription is $7.99 dollars a month and you can also make it part of your Amazon Prime subscription for extra benefits.
Whichever service is the best for you, an audiobook subscription is good for both the mind and the heart – so why not gift it to someone close to you?
Pillpack – Your health on a subscription
Pillpack is an ingenious subscription service that lets you create your own list of vitamins and other medications that you need on a weekly or monthly basis. The price depends on the package you create and the subscription will make sure to deliver your prescriptions and vitamins in good time, so you will never run out.
No more standing in line at the pharmacy or forgetting your vitamins on the way home. Pillpack delivers what you need to feel great, right to your door. And also, shipping is free!
BarkBox – The gift for man’s best friend
Christmas is obviously also a time to spoil your four-legged friend and what better way to do this, but with a special surprise box for your dog and yourself, every month!
Barkbox is a subscription box concept that sends you special treats and toys for your dog to enjoy. Subscriptions start at $23 dollars per box and should your dog not enjoy the contents, you can contact BarkBox to make sure the next box will fit your dog’s taste. Pure luxury for your little buddy!
Jeg håber, du har fundet masser af inspiration til den gode julegave. Enten til andre eller til dig selv. Jeg er sikker på, at 2022 også bliver et fantastisk år for alle os, der elsker abonnementer.
I hope you found lots of inspiration for the perfect holiday gift. Either for someone else or for yourself! I’m sure that 2022 will be a fantastic year for all of us who love subscriptions.
