Fabulous Experience Gift Ideas!


If you are still racking your brain for gift ideas for those people on your list who are so hard to shop for, or the ones who seem to already have everything on our gift guides, today’s post is for you. There are experience gift ideas for every age that are sure to “wow” them on Christmas morning, plus experience gifts are great for the last minute shopper!

Up first is an experience gift that would please pretty much every single person on your list because who doesn’t love a clean car?! Spiffy is an on-demand car care service that offers car washes, detailing, oil changes and more. The best part? They come right to your home or office! This is such a great gift for that person who loves to have a neat and tidy car or the ultimate treat for someone when they return from holiday road-tripping. Spiffy is in multiple cities. Order a Spiffy gift card here or you can use code DOSAYGIVE for $30 off services #3-5.

Another fabulous gift idea for women is an ant-aging treatment like a Broadband Light (BBL) Photofacial that targets sign of aging and sun damage. Or a moisture-infusing Hydracial (amazing!).

I’ve been going to Austin and Reddick Dermatology for the past few months and I’m hooked. (Watch my Instagram Stories to see them in action!) Women LOVE this type of experience gift. To get a certificate from Austin and Reddick, call their office at 214-506-1115.

If you have an expecting couple on your shopping list, a Fresh 48 session with Molly Coulter would be a special gift. Molly will come to the hospital within 48 hours of the baby’s arrival to capture those special moments in the first hours and days of a baby’s life. More about Fresh 48 sessions here. You can reach out to Molly to get a gift certificate or book a session here.

For Children

Experience gifts for children make great gifts for the whole family, bringing endless entertainment all year long. Zoo memberships, museum membership, nature preserve memberships, just to name a few, are all great ideas that are sure to keep the little one on your list occupied. We suggest pairing a membership with something palpable they can open on Christmas morning like a stuffed animal or book about art or the zoo.

For Tweens and Teens

At such a difficult age, experience gifts can be a great go-to for tweens and teens! We made sure to include some great ideas here for all different types of tweens and teens. Including something to unwrap with the certificate for the experience is important to remember, too!

For Women

Experiences gifts for women are the perfect excuse for her to take some time to herself. Book a trip to the spa, a cooking class for her and a friend, or a fun wine tasting for the aspiring sommelier. For the beauty lover, Book a Birdie is my favorite on-demand beauty service that does my hair at my home for every photo shoot!

For Men

Men can be the hardest ones to shop for, so I love suggesting experience gifts for them. Consider booking a getaway weekend with fun activities planned, like a day of golf. If he is a frequent traveler, an Uber gift card may be the most practical gift he receives! A racing experience is at the top of many men’s lists. Checkout the different experiences I included below.
