They barely have time to cook, let alone brave the crowded grocery store. That's why your friend or family member will love a Home Chef subscription. Our experts chose it as the number meal kit delivery service because it delivers high-quality, fresh ingredients and easy-to-follow recipes (that taste delicious!) straight to your giftee's doorstep.

It has a vast library of entirely family-friendly entertainment, including animated Walt Disney classics, Pixar films, Star Wars, and Marvel movies. And you can actually get your loved one a Disney+ gift subscription, so it's easier than ever to gift one.

They'll have instant access to thousands of e-books, audiobooks, and podcasts and they don't even need a Kindle—they can use the app on any device.

Audiobooks are a great gift for a lot of reasons: Your giftee can listen to them while they're driving, while they're working out, while they're cooking dinner—the list goes on. That's why Audible, the largest provider of audiobooks, is so highly recommended, especially now. Not only can they choose any book from biographies to best-selling fiction, but they can listen on almost every device imaginable.

If the first words out of their mouth when they wake up in the morning is "where's my coffee," they could benefit from Counter Culture. It's the best coffee subscription we've ever tried because it will ship high-quality coffee beans straight to their door and even lets them try out a wide variety of coffee flavors. It's much more exciting than handing them a Starbucks gift card (again).
