There are obvious upsides to gifting somebody a subscription: For starters, it’s easy. It’s also a gift that keeps on giving. Here are seven to consider this Father’s Day. As long as your dad likes to drink, read or listen to music, you can gift him something killer.

Taster’s Club

This is a great subscription service for dads who love whiskey and spirits, as long as they’re adventurous about trying new flavors. With Taster’s Club, there are 11 subscriptions to choose from — spanning from bourbon to Scotch to vodka (and more). The bottles you get are a mix of regional and craft releases, with some rare exclusives in there as well. Gift subscriptions are usually between $69 and $79 per month.

OneBlade Shave

OneBlade is well-known for its single-edge shaving razors, so it’s a great option if you’re shopping for a man who hates (or can’t use) multi-blade razors. OneBlade subscriptions start at $1 a day, and that’ll get a combination of razor, blades and skinscare products delivered right to their door.

Blue Bottle Coffee

Dad like coffee? This is a great subscription to gift. It gets Blue Bottle’s signature single-origin roasts delivered straight to his door.

Spotify Premium with Hulu

Once you go ad-free listening, you never go back. So if for some reason dad doesn’t have a Spotify subscription, hook him up. There’s more reason than ever to gift them a subscription, too, as it nets him a subscription to Hulu, as well.

Apple News+

Apple’s new subscription service, Apple News+, grants users access to numerous magazines, newspapers and other paywalled content. If you know the person you’re gifting for is a voracious reader — of all kinds of content — this is something they’ll use every day. Just make sure they have an iPhone (or iPad).

The New York Times

The New York Times is a notable absentee from Apple’s new subscription service. A digital subscription can be as cheap as a few bucks a week, which is ideal for anybody who consumes the paper on their tablet or laptop. If the person prefers an actual newspaper, an “all-access” account is a lot more expensive.

The Wall Street Journal

Like the Times, the WSJ is a noteable absentee from Apple News+. And since it’s also one of the most popular and most read newspapers in the world, a subscription makes for a great and reoccuring gift.
