Gift an Experience If You Want to Give Something Unique

Gift-giving can be a challenge, but these unique gift experiences make it easy to show someone how much you care. Whether you don’t know the person very well, you want to give them something truly special, or it's the holiday season and you’re running low on ideas and time, we have you covered this year. 

Give a gift experience of a creative workshop or class! From cooking classes to craft workshops, there is something that will excite everyone in your life. These classes are perfect for beginners, so you don’t need to worry about the skill level of your gift recipient. These unique workshops are meant to be a fun and casual learning experience, making them the perfect celebratory experience. You can choose between getting out in the community to join an in-person class or having a convenient DIY kit sent to your home for a virtual class! Either way, you’ll learn from an expert instructor who will guide you through your DIY project or recipe from start to finish. By the end of class, you’ll have a new set of skills and a handmade takeaway or home-cooked meal. 

Are you wondering why you should choose a gift experience over something that can be wrapped? There are so many reasons why gift experiences will make your gift stand out! With these fun classes and workshops, you can treat a friend, loved one, or family member to an unforgettable experience. You can gift them a special day of self-care all to themselves or join in on the fun and spend a special day together.

Unique gift ideas you’ll love

Gift experiences make for the ultimate surprise. Who’s expecting a day of chocolate-making, a cooking class where they’ll learn to make recipes from their favorite cuisine, or an evening to learn how to paint at home? 

With these classes, you won’t have to worry about gifting the same thing as someone else. There will be no regifting necessary with these unique experiences. If by some slim chance, they’ve already taken a beginner’s pottery class or know the best vegan baking recipes, there is always more to learn, new people to meet, and ideas to discover! 

Instead of battling crowds at the mall or scouring the internet for the best gift ideas, make our marketplace of creative workshops your go-to shopping list when birthdays and holidays roll around, for a stressless shopping experience. With so many classes to choose from, you’ll be able to gift something different to everyone on your holiday gift list.

Give the gift of quality time

Opt into the fun and join in on the celebration! Reserve tickets for two and spend a special day together. This makes a lovely Mother’s Day outing or anniversary date idea. Not only will you gift an unforgettable experience to your loved one, but you’ll be able to show up for them as well. 

This is an ideal chance to bond, create core memories, and strengthen your connection! It can be difficult to find time to spend with a loved one while trying to balance busy schedules. It’s time to put an event on the calendar that will allow you extra time to connect, one on one. Your loved one will appreciate the gesture. If you choose to take a craft class, you’ll also leave with a handmade takeaway to help savor the experience. 

Whether you’re in a long-term relationship or are spending the day with a close family member, it can be a challenge to come up with fresh ideas for things to do and keep the conversation exciting when you already know everything about each other. Learning something new together gives you something new to talk about and experience together! Maybe you’ll even discover a new hobby to share and explore together after class is over.

Encourage self-care with creative workshops

Sometimes we forget to take time for ourselves. If you have a friend or loved one that is always putting everyone else’s needs before their own, remind them to practice some self-care with a gift experience! In these classes, you will learn new skills in a comfortable and casual environment. There’s no need to stress about finding all the supplies and tools to create your DIY project, your instructor will provide all the tools and resources you will need. In fact, you can even take classes from the comfort of your own home, with our virtual workshops! 

Instead of a spa day or a massage gift card, let them relax in one of these soothing creative workshops. In these classes, you can exercise your brain, dive into a new hobby, and create something that will make you proud. Try candle-making classes, learn how to make organic body care products, or release stress in a fluid art class. By the end of your workshop, you’ll feel rejuvenated and ready to jump back into the day. 

Thoughtful gifts for everyone 

Whether you’re looking for anniversary gifts, wedding gifts, birthday gifts, mother’s day gifts, or anything in between, there is a gift experience for everyone on your list. If your mom loves trying new things, surprise her with something she wouldn’t come up with on her own. Maybe she’d love a photography class or pottery workshop. Has your dad recently retired and is looking for some new relaxing hobbies? Celebrate his years of hard work with an herb gardening class or a soothing baking class. 

When it comes to celebratory events, don’t ruin them with the stress of finding the perfect gift. With gift experience gift cards, you can let your gift recipient choose what they want to learn! This is a much better alternative to a card with some cash. With these experience gift cards, you can encourage them to take a creative day for themselves, but also give them the freedom to explore something that interests them! These gift experiences make for great ideas for graduation gifts, gifts for couples, and more! In search of even more fabulous options when it comes to unique gift ideas? Take a look at these possibilities!
