Not every good gift comes in a box with a bow on it. Experiential gifts provide the gift of experiences. Whether the recipient gets pampered for a day at a spa or gets covered head to toe in paintballs , he or she is sure to have the time of their lives. These gifts are perfect for the friend or family member who has everything, or the workaholic who never has time for his or herself. Treat your favourite loved one to a day of relaxation, intense fun, or indulgence. There truly is something for everyone!

Tips

  • Really consider the recipient. Even the most selfless people make the mistake of projecting their own tastes while shopping for gifts. If your friend loves living on the edge, a skydiving experience would make a better gift than a golf trip .
  • Try to get a gift that is good for any day. Buying tickets for a dinner cruise on a specific date may inconvenience your friend. It's best to get a gift certificate type of gift that can be used at any time.
  • Make sure the activity is local, unless you are providing transportation as well. Buying a New York City helicopter tour for your friend living in California isn't a good idea unless you're buying the plane ticket as well!
