One thing we learned from the pandemic is that 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 Mom is into fashion, Tan France can teach them exactly 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 cooking skills to the next level.

In each class, there are about 20 lessons, which will take about 10 minutes per lesson. Plus, subscribers 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 they can watch their lessons anytime, anywhere using just a 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, Mom will be hooked.
