Tips for Experience Gifting







  • Experiential gifts are perfect to give as "family gifts", and many families will include them on their wish lists.
  • Many Experience Gifts are limited to certain geographical areas. Always make sure that the experience you choose is available in an area the recipient lives or would be willing and able to travel.
  • Some experience gifts have age and health requirements; ensure your recipient meets these requirements.
  • Be aware that some of the higher end experiences can be expensive, although $75 can certainly get an interesting experience.
  • The most important tip for experience gifting is making sure the recipient would actually enjoy and would want to participate in the experience. If you know the recipient is afraid of heights or flying, a helicopter experience would not be a good fit.
  • Most experience gift companies offer gift certificates/vouchers that can be sent directly to the purchaser or gift recipient via mail or email. Which make gifting experience gifts simple for people that travel and need a gift that can be easily packed or shipped and for those last minute shoppers.
