Over the course of our time in quarantine, we’ve tried just about everything in an effort to keep ourselves busy. Some of us have learned how to cook for the first time while others learned the joy that is DIY projects. Honestly, the gift of learning is one of the best gifts life has to offer (even if you’re just gifting yourself). This holiday season, why not treat yourself to a Wine Appreciation class with one of the world’s best wine critics James Suckling or learn how to write from Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Shonda Rhimes. Sound exciting? You’re in luck. All of these are possible and more with MasterClass and their extended Black Friday two-for-one membership deal is still going on making this the ultimate gift for last-minute shoppers. Yes, two memberships for the price of one!
Every MasterClass includes lessons that are taught by some of the most prestigious names in their fields. You’ll get invaluable sage advice in any area you’ve always wanted to learn. We’ve all pretty much binged all Netflix shows imaginable during lockdown. What better time to pick up a new skill than now? Each membership includes about 20 videos that on average are only 10-20 minutes — making it perfect to watch as little or as many videos you want in a day. We’ve gathered a few of our favorite online courses that are too good to miss. Brace yourselves, because school is officially in session.
