Things are always nice to give as gifts, but lately I’ve loved gifting friends and family members unique experiences just as much as I love to give them a present wrapped in a box. From edible treats to around the world experiences, here are some creative ways you can give the gift of unforgettable memories this holiday season.
Tinggly allows you to gift unforgettable experiences around the globe to loved ones. Their “gift box” options allow you to send a collection of themed experiences (like a “Taste The World” collection that includes cooking classes, tastings, and walking tours, or a “Just Married” collection perfectly curated for newlyweds) that the recipient can redeem in hundreds of cities around the world.
Know someone who could use a little rest and relaxation? Why not surprise them with an Airbnb getaway? I don’t need to tell you how wonderful some of the stays on Airbnb are, so no matter what your loved one’s travel style or dream locale, there’s a perfect stay just for them. Not sure what to book? You can also give a gift card. And for those who love to try new things but aren’t sure when they’ll be able to travel, you can even gift an Airbnb Online Experience like a virtual escape room or cocktail making class.
Don’t just send a boring old cake delivery the next time a friend or family member has a birthday; gift them a sweet experience with a Send A Cake delivery. These customizable delivery sets feature a delicious cake, beautiful gift box, and exciting surprise add-ons like music clips, candy, and even mechanical butterflies to truly make receiving such a cake a memorable moment.
With locations in Los Angeles and New York City, Alchemy43 offers a number of micro treatments, wellness shots, and skincare treatments all aimed to make clients look and feel their best. For any beauty, skincare, and wellness enthusiasts, a treatment from Alchemy43, like a microneedling facial or a power peel, would make for an ideal gift.
Know someone who loves to get out into nature and explore national parks around the country? They’ll absolutely adore this annual pass that allows them and up to 3 guests access to national parks and federal recreational lands around the US for a full year. From the Grand Canyon to Mt. St. Helens to Haleakala, this pass grants entry to over 2,000 sites.
Have an out-of-town friend who’s been craving that restaurant you took them out to last time they were in town? Now you can send some of the country’s most iconic meals to friends around the country. Legendary dishes like Langer’s #19 from Los Angeles, Commander’s Palace’s seafood gumbo from New Orleans, or Russ & Daughters bagels and lox from New York can be delivered, with a little bit of minimal meal prep to make them ready to eat.
