Whether you’re looking for a last-minute holiday gift or something for the more tech-savvy wellness enthusiast on your list, an app-based subscription is quick and easy. Most people are on their phones a lot, so it makes sense to look for the best apps to gift. It’ll make their screen time a little more useful.
The best part about giving someone an app-based subscription is the fact that you only need their email address or phone number to get their present to them in minutes.
Here are five apps that can help improve your quality of life and overall well-being.
For the Zen: A Meditation App
There are tons of meditation apps out there, but the only one I’ve personally tried is Simple Habit. Simple habit makes it seriously simple for learning the fundamentals of meditation and mindfulness even if you only have as little as two minutes to spare.
I haven’t tried Headspace, but it’s another top-rated option. There’s also Liberate which was specifically created as a meditation and mindfulness space for BIPOC with content that’s relevant to our specific issues.
For the Chef (or Wannabe Chef): Meal Prep App
This app makes mealtime super streamlined. Mealime allows you to plan your meals for the week, then it generates a grocery list with exact amounts of the items you’ll need. To top it off, you can connect your grocery delivery service to easily populate your shopping cart. My favorite feature is the cooking mode which allows you to go through recipes step by step and has timers for items that have specific cook times.
