There's a whole world of virtual gifts for birthday that can be accessed online. Gifts range from specialized messages from your favorite celebrities, bottles of wine sent directly to your doorstep, or cards delivered to a certain someone, without your ever stepping foot outside. Here are our some suggestions:
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to learn from the best in the world? This is the idea behind MasterClass. A wide range of courses designed and taught by some of the most famous, renowned, and respected luminaries in fields as diverse as cooking, guitar playing, negotiation (hostage or otherwise), fiction writing, film making, and gardening, just to name a few.
Courses are available for individual purchase or as part of an all-access package that gives you access to every class on the site for a full year. The annual package (which is equal to the price of two individual classes) is a great deal for people with broad interests or those who simply love to learn, as cited by Thing Amagift.

Even if he's traded dress pants for joggers, he can still go for fancy footwear, starting with these patterned crew and no-show socks. Send a new pair straight to his door every month with this subscription.
#3. A Classic Card

Postable is one of my favorite tools when I know I don't have time to buy, sign, and mail a card. You choose the design of your choice and message, and they'll do the rest. Yep, that includes the printing, stamping, and the mailing—all for under $5.
#4. Spotify gift card
The paid version of Spotify does away with ads, allows you to download songs to play offline (instead of having to stream them), and unlocks all kinds of basic features on the mobile app that make it way more useful and enjoyable, Marie Claire cites. If they haven’t yet made the leap from free to premium, this is a great way to give them a taste of what they’re missing. They’ll most likely never go back.
#5. Self-Care Subscription Box
Give her everything she needs for a night of pampering, all thanks to this monthly subscription box. Along with a mood-boosting activity, it comes with up to eight wellness must-haves, including bath bombs and face masks, to encourage more "me-time."
#6. A Cameo From Their Favorite Celebrity
Have a friend who raves over a certain celebrity? A Cameo is the ultimate virtual gift. Stars ranging from The Bachelor's Chris Harrison to the stars of Netflix's Cheer will create a 60-second personalized message for your friend. Depending on who you choose, it can get expensive, but seeing your friend's reaction is priceless.
#7. Adobe Creative Cloud
Adobe Creative Cloud is a monthly subscription service that gives digital creatives access to the world’s best visual creative software. Different packages provide unlimited access to industry-standard software for photographers, graphic designers, video editors, illustrators, and more.
#8. A Beauty Subscription Box

The world of beauty is massive, and finding "the one" can be a series of trial and error. Ease that pain by gifting your loved one a beauty subscription box (we listed some of our favorites here) for one month, three months, or more. I love Skylar's Scent Club, which delivers a rollie fragrance that you choose yourself. Unsure which scent to gift first? They even have a scent quiz you can take, so the right kind of smell gets delivered to their door.
#9. National Parks Annual Pass
Now more than ever, it's time to soak up the great outdoors. Once they have an Annual Pass, they can set their sights on more than 2,000 beautiful sites across the United States like the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park.
#10. Single Serve Pie Gift Box
No matter where they live, they can experience the joy (and sugar-high) that these mini pies from Tiny Pies bring. This box of four pies, which are made and shipped in Austin, Texas, highlights their most popular flavors: pecan, apple, cheery, and Texas Two Step (pecan and chocolate brownie).
#11. Glo Yoga
Glo is the unquestioned leader in the world of online yoga classes. With top-notch instructors, live filmed classes, and a plethora of choices in terms of styles, difficulty level, and anatomical focus, Glo has users covered no matter what type of yoga they want to practice. Additionally, Glo’s “discover” feature is great for helping beginners figure out where to start in the virtual sea of videos available on the platform.
#12. 1 Year of Disney+

With the releases of Hamilton and Mulan, Disney+ has proven to be one of the best streaming services in 2020. Give them an entire year of family-friendly movies and TV shows, including originals and classics from Pixar, Marvel, National Geographic, and more, according to Good House Keeping.
#13. A Box of Roses That Lasts for a Year

Venus et Fleur has garnered cult status for their selection of rose boxes that smell amazing for an entire year. Each box comes in a bunch of different colors, so you're bound to find one that they'll love.
#14. Fragrance Subscription

Since scent is so personal, let the gift recipient pick a fragrance that they actually like. Scentbird makes it possible for them to sample different options until they find their signature scent: Simply pick a three, six, or twelve-month gift subscription, and let them pick travel-size fragrances from top brands like Burberry, Marc Jacobs, and Gucci.
#15. Audible Membership
If you have one of those friends who says they don't have time to sit down and read, may I suggest an Audible membership? Featuring thousands of your favorite titles, never have a boring commute (is it weird to say I miss it?) again. The sleep timer feature on their app has been life-changing for me.
