At The Inside, we're always looking for visual inspiration. And nothing beats browsing a collection IRL. To many of our friends in New York, we're gifting a membership to The Whitney (and hoping they invite us to see Warhol before March 31). Giving a museum membership is easy and thoughtful, and it doesn't matter where the lucky recipient lives. From the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia to the Hammer Museum in LA, there are amazing options across the country.

For the Know-It-All  

Gone are the days of hardbacks collecting dust in the corner. A subscription to Audible is the way to go. The recipient is probably getting AirPods from somebody else, so this audiobook library is the perfect complement.
