Giving a gift of experience is a perfect gift idea for anyone on your list. Here’s over 70 experience gift ideas that will save you stress and time. 



Giving a gift of experience is our family’s favorite gifts to give.

After years of giving each other gifts that ended up broken, lost, or forgotten, we decided to focus on experience gifts. And it has been wonderful! 

Not only does it save us time and stress rushing from store to store, but the gifts are more memorable and meaningful. 

Instead of giving a gift that will clutter up the house, why not give the gift of experience?   A gift of experience can create better memories than the latest and greatest toy or gadget on the market. 

Just try it. I bet you’ll come to love it, too! 


These fun gifts of experience are win-win: simple to shop for or put together and will give your gift recipient a memory to create! Wrap up a memory this year!
