Best Gifts that are actually unforgettable experiences

experience gifts

Do you want to bring more happiness into the life of your loved one? Then choose an experience instead of a material object for their gift this year. There is already evidence that experiences make us happier than objects, and that this happiness lasts longer. So if you are looking for something really special and unforgettable as a gift for someone, think about giving them an experience! Here are some ideas:


1. Opera/Theater/Show tickets (for the best seats, of course)

2. Plane tickets to a favorite destination or getaway

3. Drawing class

4. Piano class

5.Stargazing with a cup of hot chocolate

6. A night at a Bedouin camp. Spending the night in the desert is not just for camping trips these days, it can make your daydreams into reality by surprising loved ones with this experience on its own or as part of a journey to another place you have never been before!

7. Skydiving is a great gift idea for anyone that can't think of anything else, or if you just need an easy present to buy during those last minutes before the holiday rush. It's a thrilling and unforgettable option!

8. Glamping. Or champing (camping in a church) if you feel like scandalizing the religious society

9. Anechoic room– this is a hard task because there are few anechoic chambers in the entire world, and they open up only with certain days. It's said that if you stay inside of one for just long enough (as if it's not the case), your heart will start to beat normally

10. A massage, preferably accompanied by a glass of wine or a cup of hot chocolate

11: A cooking class is always great for those who love to cook and want more knowledge about it! Or if you know someone that's just starting out in the kitchen- this would be perfect as well because they can learn from professionals how things are done properly while having fun at home with their loved ones (or friends).

12. Russian Banya , a Finnish sauna, or an Indian steam bath

13. Buy a thoughtful book for someone that will engage them and leave an impact

14. Wine tasting in Napa, California

15. Bungee jumping

16. Paragliding – a tandem flight

17. A special dinner with exotic cuisine that you won't be able to pronounce any item on the menu, and have to helplessly point to dishes to order them

18. A whole day at a theme park

19. A balloon flight in Cappadocia Turkey

20. A day on a lavish boat with lots of champagne, complete with your favorite music playlist

21. A day snowshoeing in the mountains

22. A cocktail night at a rooftop bar

23. A night picnic

24. A visit to a haunted house

25. A language course. Another way to make this gift memorable is to arrange for a foreign language course that takes place abroad

26. Photo shoot by a professional

27. Sending a warm winter vacation to someone with an upcoming birthday in the middle of chilly January is sure to be met with warmth

28. Hike into the mountains with some cake and champagne concealed in a backpack. Once you reach the peak, open up the bottle of champagne and light candles on top of the cake for your loved one (you might even need to buy non-extinguishable candles because peaks where windy)

29. Spend a night in a floating bungalow in Fiji or elsewhere

30. A dinner themed around the country of your most recent trip together

31. Surprise a loved one living in another part of the country or world with an unexpected meet-up and coffee

33. You might want to consider a membership for an aquarium, zoo or science center as a gift. These memberships can usually be given out at any time and can provide lifelong entertaining memories for loved ones

34. A salsa dance lesson

35. Horse riding on a beach

36. You could give your loved one a subscription to yoga classes. It will keep them healthy and really brighten their day

37. Anything homemade, because a homemade cake is much greater than the product itself; it shows that you put time, effort and intent into creating it

38. A luxury hotel stay for a friend who spends most of their life on the road in crappy hostels

39. Gift a Premium membership for their favorite app or online subscription

40. Make one of their dreams come true. Has your friend always wanted to publish a book? To record their own song? Help them make their hobby a little bit more tangible by paying for the record or the publishing service

41. A classic surprise party

42. Test drive a Lamborghini

43. A trip to the moon (or at least a virtual one).  A company called Apollo Box offers an experience where you can send someone on their own private mission and they will be able for take photos of what it looks like from space, as well get some souvenirs that are actually made in outer-space! It's pricey but so worth every penny if your loved ones is into this kind thing 😉

44. Making someone else laugh is so powerful for the giver and receiver. Buy tickets for a stand-up comedy show if your friend is feeling down, take them to see a funny comedy movie, or arrange with friends to get together at a restaurant where everyone has been known to hoot and sqeak all night long

45. A fixed sum of money with fun directions like “On jun 10, spend this money on something you wouldn’t normally do. Get adventurous or do whatever you feel like in the moment

46. A letter to your future self, with a time limit of one year from now for you or the recipient (or both) and instructions on how it should be opened: “Dear Future Me/You”  - write down all that is happening in life right this moment; what are they feeling? What do their days look like at work / home ? How has everything changed since then?""What advice would I give myself if my past me could see into today's world?". This can also serve as an anniversary present! Write letters back & forth between two people who know each other very well - not just romantic partners but friends too

17 House Warming Gift Ideas for New Neighbors


One of the most exciting things that can happen to you is when you get a new neighbor. It's a chance for friendship, and someone to share your space with. When they move in, it's time to show them some love! Here are 17 house warming gift ideas that will help make your new neighbor feel welcome:


1. Welcome gift basket - A gift basket is a great way to welcome your new neighbor. Include a bottle of wine, some snacks, and maybe even an oven mitt or spatula for cooking together!


2. Coffee maker - A coffee maker is one thing that many people don't have in their home when they move out on the first day so it's always helpful if you can provide them with this gift as well


3. Gift cards- Gift Cards are another great idea because everyone needs something from time to time like groceries at Trader Joe’s (or any grocery store), gas station card, etc., Target has everything too; think about what would be useful where ever he/she lives nearby before picking up these items).

 
4. Flowers- Bringing fresh flowers to your new neighbors can really brighten up their day. Moving to a new neighborhood can be a little daunting so a quick reminder of the beauty in their new home can make them feel at ease.


5. Gift Basket- A gift basket is a great idea for the new neighbor because it will have all sorts of goodies in there that they can enjoy! You could put things like candy, wine or beer (if you know their preference), coffee/tea mix and some other snacks to go with them so when your friend arrives at his house he has something delicious waiting on him too). One thing I would recommend adding into this type of present are items such as oven mitts if cooking together becomes an activity between neighbors). This way everyone feels comfortable while preparing food without worrying about getting burned by hot pans etc.). And maybe even spatulas - these come in handy especially during pancake time :)! Or how about giving someone


6. Candles- Candle scents are always nice because they can be mixed with the other smells in their house. A plant or tree - A living gift that will continue giving as long it's taken care of is perfect, especially if you know what type he/she likes (eucalyptus trees smell great!). The best part about this idea? You don't have to worry too much since plants require very little maintenance so there won’t need any more gifts like these again until next year when we celebrate our anniversary ;). It also has an added bonus: being able to make new memories together while planting them out on his porch 🙂 !)


7. Home-made cookies- Everyone loves to eat homemade cookies. It's a great way to show your appreciation for their new home and you'll have the opportunity of getting to know them better by asking about what kind they like best or if there are any allergies that need consideration when baking :)!


8. A few house plants- Houseplants add life, color & freshness into someone’s space while also purifying the air in our homes! They can be used as decoration but more importantly, provide an atmosphere with fewer toxins than those found outside which is especially important during allergy season ;). A nice gift idea would include some succulents (they're hardy!), cacti(who doesn't love these?), fern leaves/pansies - all easy-care options perfect even beginners.


9. Tea and Bagels basket- Hot cup of tea and a bagels basket is the perfect way to say "Welcome!". It is a thoughtful gift that will make them feel at home


10. A Welcome Wreath- A welcome wreathe can be hung on the door and filled with flowers, pine cones & other natural elements for an elegant touch! They are also great because they'll last up until winter when you might not want fresh-cut plants in the front yard ;). The best part about this idea? You don't need any fancy tools - just some wire hangers from around the house (or even old clothesline) + twine/wool string ;)! If there isn’t room outside by their doorstep then try hanging one inside near the entryway so as soon walk


11. A jar of jam or honey- A nice, thoughtful gift idea for new neighbors would be something sweet like this. It's not too expensive but it will show them that you care about their well-being! You can find some great options at your local grocery store - we love Trader Joe’s Organic Honey with Lavender & Thyme (great if they have allergies) as an example ;). And don't forget jams such are strawberry rhubarb from our friends over in Vermont ;)!!! They're delicious on toast/bagel sandwiches!! :)! Or try making these yourself by following one simple recipe: https://wwwSallysbakingaddiction


12. DIY welcome home Jar- Another great idea for a housewarming gift is to make your own welcome home jar. This can be as simple or elaborate of an undertaking you want it to! The sky's the limit with this one and there are so many different ideas out in blog land that I'm sure anyone could find something they like 🙂


13. A personalized frame- Another great way, especially if their last name starts off similar enough (or even better yet) exactly how yours does ;)!!! You know what we mean - when people say "Oh wow our names sound alike!" A personalized framed photo will show them just who much thought went into choosing such thoughtful gifts ;). And don't forget about adding some pictures from around town on Facebook/Instagram etc...it'll give useful and creative way

14. A housewarming card- A personalized note that says "Welcome!" in your handwriting will make them feel special from day one 😉 .Plus they can always keep these cards as keepsakes or even frame 'em up somewhere around their home ;). And don't forget about adding pictures inside - we all know how much our friends like seeing themselves lol !!! It'll be sure not go unnoticed if there're photos included!! I'm thinking something along those lines would look


15. Mug Herb garden- Gift a sample of your favorite herbs or spices to the new neighbors. They'll be able a create their own recipes and also have fresh ingredients for cooking!


16. Personalized Housewarming Gift- I love this idea so much because it's personalized with your name on top of theirs, which is really neat 🙂 .It would make such an amazing gift too - just saying 😉 !!! And you can get these at any store that sells home decor items (Target/Walmart) as well !! The best part about them is they're not expensive either! You could buy one in bulk if there more than two people moving into next door lol ;). There should always be someone's house warming gifts out when we go shopping anyways...so why don't u add some personal ones


17. Lemonade DIY gift for new neighbors- A great way to welcome new neighbors into the neighborhood is with a yummy lemonade gift! So many people love this idea and it's so simple too. All you need are some lemons, sugar/honey (depending on preference), water...and of course cups for serving 🙂

How many embroidered shirts does one man need? We went straight to the source and spoke with some commercial and recreational fishermen for some gift top-notch ideas. You can trust that fish-themed apparel didn’t even make the cut. Your fisherman dad gifts have certainly already covered nautical dress shirts, bucket hats, and tackle boxes over the years. So why not get him something he’ll really use on the water. We’ve compiled a list of 15 fisherman gifts for dad for under $100. The fisher man gifts lifted below are sure to please.
