The Perfect Last-Minute Gift (No Shipping Required!)

It's all online and great for anyone on your list.

The gift scramble is in full swing.

We all have a few people on our gift list that we can't nail down the perfect present for until the last minute.

Luckily our editors have found the perfect gift you can give in a matter of seconds: The Great Courses Plus. This online platform gives you access to stream thousands of hours of audio and video lectures on topics ranging from food & wine to the sciences, anything you can imagine, they've got it!

This is a gift for anyone. For the friend who wants to step it up in the kitchen, they have the Delicious Dishes series or for someone looking to pick up a new skill, there are a ton of How To lectures. They've got it all:

Not only are the lectures incredibly comprehensive they're also fun and hosted by expert professors - and this is not school: no homework, tests, etc. just clean, fun learning about what you want to know. On average courses are 12-18 hours long, so you get all the info you could ever want but get to decide how you want to break it up.

Great Courses partners with renowned organizations such as National Geographic, History®, Smithsonian, the Mayo Clinic, and The Culinary Institute of America. So you get access to exclusive content from them, too - whoever gets this subscription on your list will love the wide collection, streamlined platform, and all the knowledge they could ever dream of.

Give the gift of a 3, 6, or 12-month membership to The Great Courses Plus and get your loved one access to everything this platform has to offer.

These plans range from $45 to $150 so you can go with whatever fits your budget. New content is added each month so it's a gift that just keeps on giving! Plus you can download lectures and take them wherever you go.

Simply choose a Great Courses Plus gift plan, schedule when you want it emailed to the recipient, and sit back; it's perfect for those long-distance exchanges.

If you'd rather give the gift in person you can also print out the certificate and pair it with a cute keepsake, like a beer glass or some cozy socks. Either way, you don't need to put your trust in shipping, praying it'll arrive in time (especially these days).

Holidays are meant to be relaxing, so we recommend this gift both for the peace of mind of the gifter and the enjoyment of the giftee.
