Interior Design Styling
Help spruce up their space! This gift from Modsy pairs the gift recipient with an expert interior designer to bring their design dreams to reality. You can choose from single or multi-room packages.
A Streaming Service
Give the gift of a membership to HBO Max, Disney+, Hulu, or Netflix – endless pandemic entertainment! (I’d know!)
Somm Wine Delivery
Last but not least. If you’re looking for an easy entry into the wine-subscription world, or want to cultivate some basic wine knowledge, this is a great service. SommSelect is curated by master sommelier Ian Cauble, whom you may recognize from Netflix’s documentary Somm. Each delivery is themed – one might have wines that highlight a specific growing region, while another might include wines that explore a grape variety.
Other ideas? A magazine subscription, Audible, or Rossetta Stone. If all else fails, send them a bottle of wine and local dinner delivery via DoorDash!
Great ideas!! And I needed some 🙂
Also, we did Modsy for our “loft” space early on in COVID and COULDN’T BE HAPPIER. It was a pretty complicated space and it turned out absolutely beautifully! I want to use them for every room in the house now! xo
Ooh good to know! I haven’t tried them, but what a great concept…
