Gift of learning is holiday offering by Menlo Park-based

by Contributed Content on November 30, 2014

Menlo Park-based has launched a new program called the Gift of Learning which allows anyone to select from a variety of courses on to find just the right fit for friends, family, or colleagues.

“Learning is such a great gift,” said CEO and founder, Justin Kitch (pictured). “So many material gifts start collecting dust or end up in the landfill, but giving somebody a new skill can enrich a person for a lifetime. We are super excited to spread the joy and sense of accomplishment that comes from learning something new.”

To gift a course, go to and click on the gift icon next to any course. Gift-givers can then create a personal gift message and schedule a delivery date. The course recipient will own the course and will be able to watch it again and again.

As a side bonus, people can shop for courses until the very last minute. Delivery of gift messages and course access happens instantly. If the gift recipient prefers a different course instead, no problem — the course credit is fully transferrable to any another course.

Curious offers more than 10,000 interactive, video-based lessons and courses available to anyone, anytime they feel like learning something new. Most courses typically range from $9.99 to $99.99. Some popular courses perfect for gifting include:

  • Gifts for The Crafter (jewelry making, crocheting and quilting)
  • Gifts for The DIY’er (projects for the home, gardening and mosaic projects)
  • Gifts for Kids (crafting for kids, ballet, soccer and Spanish for kids)
  • Gifts for The Explorer (Italian and Mandarin languages as well as sailing and photography)
  • Gifts for The Foodie (knife skills, cheese making and essentials of wine)
  • Gifts for The Health/Fitness Nut (healthy eating habits, being a healthy runner and daily workouts)
  • Gifts for The Fashionista (making custom clothing as well as skincare and makeup tips)
  • Gifts for The Music Lover (rock drumming, beginner piano and blues guitar)
  • Gifts for The Entrepreneur (how to fund a startup, a business builder workshop and finding success as a writer)
  • Gifts for The Know it All (indie filmmaking, ninja training and five-minute philosophy)
