Beer subscription from the beer crate

We have spent a few cozy summer evenings in the small Schani garden of the Bierkiste. The current temperatures have put an end to that for the time being, but nobody has to miss out on a regular interlude with the Bierkiste. So if you're looking for a gift for a friend who appreciates good beer and likes to try something new, why not give them a beer subscription from Bierkiste? The subscription delivers six different craft beers every month. Each package is different so that there is always something exciting to try. In addition, once a month there is an online tasting with the beers from the current package, where you can find out more not only about the beers themselves, but also about the breweries behind them. Incidentally, you can choose the duration of the beer subscription yourself. Because hopefully one day we'll be sitting in the Schani again anyway and drinking the beer on the spot.

Theater evening at the new Volkstheater

The Volkstheater recently moved into its new home in the Schlachthof district. And it has turned out really well. If you would like to experience the red brick building from the inside, why not give your loved one a gift voucher for an evening at the new Volkstheater this Christmas? The advantage of this is that the recipient can choose which performance to attend. You can also determine the value of the voucher yourself. With the voucher valid for three years, you should be able to admire the new Volkstheater from the inside.

"Imperfect" beauties from the caracda store

Since the small caracda store in Glockenbach has closed, we've been taking a look at its online presence. Because it's also a great place to browse and discover great labels. Something we've only recently discovered, but are very excited about, is the "Unperfekt Love" section on the site. Here, all products that have minor blemishes on delivery or due to returns, or that are missing their original packaging, are listed and offered at a slightly lower price. As a consumer, you can tick off two boxes at once: save money and avoid waste. Because the products are of course still far too good to end up in the bin. Perfect for finding small gifts for all the sustainability-minded people in your life.


HOFSTATT is a unique combination of shopping and enjoyment - and is perfectly located in the heart of Munich's city center, at Sendlinger Straße 10. Flagship stores of major top labels such as adidas, Depot, Motel a Miio and Brandy Melville are right next door to cool design stores and trendy fashion brands. You can enjoy a shopping break in quiet courtyards and a variety of restaurants. So whoever you're looking for a gift for - you're sure to find it here.

A pampering evening in the ASTOR Lounge at ARRI

A very special movie experience awaits you when you visit the ASTOR Film Lounge. The luxurious reclining chairs are handmade and covered in red velvet, the sound is an incomparable feast for the ears and drinks and snacks can be brought directly to your seat on request. If you fancy more than just a bag of salty or sweet popcorn, you can order finger food such as Obazda with pretzels or a cheese platter. But the drinks selection is really exquisite: the drinks menu includes a bottle of Prosecco as well as various long drinks and cocktails. The best thing is that you can also give all of this as a gift in the form of various gift vouchers. Depending on your budget, there are various options to choose from. Would you like to give a gift voucher? Then click here.

Curated wine subscriptions from Budbreak + Brix

Wine is not just for men. The founders of Budbreak + Brix are the best proof of this. In summer 2020, Cana Michiels' wine expertise and Anna Sullivan's love of design not only created the label, but also an entire business concept. The two women have created a wine subscription that learns from the taste of its recipients. Their "buds" are carefully curated wine boxes consisting of six bottles of wines of the highest quality and limited production.

A subscription that is definitely worthwhile. Because every two months you or the person you are giving the gift to can look forward to tasty mail. The subscription can be canceled monthly and you can also change your subscription model at any time. For example, if you realize that you'd rather drink red wine than white. Good idea. Good concept! What else can we say but: Welcome to the Fermented Juice Club!

Some people love it, others are sick to their stomachs just thinking about it. We are talking about: Bouldering.
