Ideas for Giving the Gift of Experiences

Finding the perfect gift is always a challenge.  You want it to be special yet practical.  You want to get them something they might need but yet something that they don’t already have.  As I get older, I need (want) less, but my appetite for new experiences, especially with my loved ones, is undiminished.

Ideas for Giving the Gift of Experiences |

Whether it is Father’s Day (coming soon), a birthday for someone special, or Christmas, giving the gift of an experience is always a win.  Here are some ideas to get you started.

  • A Night Out
    Wrap up tickets to a movie, a concert, a play, a sporting event, or another event.
  • Lessons
    Whether their passion is for cooking, ballroom dancing, golf, or horse-riding, an introductory lesson or a group of first lessons makes a great gift for the true enthusiast.
  • Travel
    For Christmas this past year, my husband and I’s gift to the family was a road trip to Orlando, Florida.  We hadn’t been yet and the kids were ecstatic that they were finally going to get a chance to go.
  • An Adventure
    Some people thrive on a rush. Some people need a little push to get their thrills in.  A ride in a hot air balloon, a few laps in a race car, tickets to an amusement park, white-water rafting, and a guided tour are just a few ideas that make great experiences and gifts.
  • Pampering
    The royal treatment makes a great gift for any parent, grandparent, or hard worker.  A day of cleaning service or lawn service, a massage at a local spa, or a trip to the nail or hair salon.
