Some happy gift recipients

Michelle Konecki

This class was great. It was totally approachable for someone like me, who had very little experience. Heather was patient and able to help everyone in the class regardless of their experience level. I used a wheel for the first time which was amazing! This was given to me as a birthday gift and I will definitely be going back!

Trent Wendorff

I reserved two spots in this class for myself and my partner as a gift to her. It was so much fun! Heather was so kind, helpful, and knowledgable. Even as a beginner I was able to leave the class with a piece I really liked.

Emmi Laakso

We did this private wheel throwing class as a Christmas present to my brother in law and his wife. Kendyl was a great instructor and kept things basic for us newbies, jumping in when we had additional questions. This was my first successful attempt with wheel, which was exciting. Highly recommend!

Hanna Bogue

I had gifted a wheel throwing class as a Christmas gift and honestly it’s the best gift idea I’ve ever had! To have Kendal as an instructor was so amazing. She’s insightful, knowledgeable and so encouraging throughout the entire process. The studio is well organized and clean. She had everything that you needed and showed us where everything was and what the uses were. We really enjoyed the free time we got to experiment. If we needed any help or had questions, she was always there and ready to answer. We really had a lot of fun!

US Workshop Experience Gift Cards

Surprise your loved one with an experience gift card that opens the door to all kinds of fun creative possibilities. Not only will they get to learn from talented local artists and makers, but they'll also support small businesses in their community and across the country. Whether you need a birthday present, a unique Christmas gift, or a gift for a couple, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. Treat your mom to a candle making class or your sister to a perfume workshop as a relaxing activity. If you’re looking for a way to show appreciation for your team, a cocktail making class or paint and sip will make a memorable summer or holiday party. There's something for everyone to nurture a new passion or just spend time with friends.

Types of experience gift cards

Types of Experience Gift Cards

One of the reasons to gift an experience is the chance to let your friend or loved one decide the kind of activity they’d like to try. You can give a hands-on gift like a cooking class where handmade pasta, Thai cuisine, and French pastries are just some of the culinary courses they can take.

If you know someone who has always wanted to develop their artistic skills, you can give them a gift card to sign up for a painting class or a pottery workshop. They can find one that works for their schedule so you don’t have to do the guesswork. Our classes are well-suited for beginners and supplies are included, so all they have to do is show up! They’ll meet other people just starting out or take a class together and bond over a shared activity.

You can give an experience gift to someone who wants to take a food tour or an art walk. This is an immersive time with a local expert and you won’t find this type of present in a big box store. It’s a memorable way to celebrate a birthday or bachelorette party and they’ll appreciate the care you took to find something original.

No matter where you are in the country – from San Francisco to New York City – there are creative experiences to delight all the important people in your life.

How experience gift cards work

How Experience Gift Cards Work

It doesn’t get any easier than giving a gift card for experiences. There are no apps to download or codes to keep track of. When you buy our gift cards, everything is simplified with an email. Have a browse at our classes and choose whatever catches your eye or piques your curiosity.

Instead of generic gift cards, you can send friends and family something that fits their interests. If your co-worker loves flowers, she can learn how to make her own bouquets with a floral arrangement class. Maybe you need a gift for a teacher or assistant. Find a creative experience they’d enjoy from making ceramics to unwinding with a wellness gift like an aromatherapy skincare making class.

Our gift cards are perfect for couples too! If your partner has a passion for arts and culture, you can find art classes that allow them to develop their skills and knowledge. A street art class gives you an insider view with a graffiti artist as a guide. Take it together for the perfect date night. Or perhaps your grandparent loves plants and gardening – a terrarium-making class for two would be the perfect opportunity for them to level up their knowledge while having fun. This is a thoughtful way to show your love and appreciation.

Benefits of experience gift cards

Benefits of Experience Gift Cards

Gift cards offer a unique opportunity to give someone the gift of exploration and self-discovery. Instead of just receiving a material object or a traditional gift, they can try an interest or hobby that can spark a new passion. Whether learning to make their own scented candles or mastering Spanish cooking, your loved one will have the chance to become immersed in a new skill with expert guidance.

One of the greatest advantages of gift experiences is the opportunity to learn from local experts. Our teachers are passionate about what they do and take joy in sharing their knowledge with others. Your mom, sister, or best friend can immerse themselves in creative workshops and gain a new hobby.

While material gifts may provide instant gratification, experiences have longer-lasting benefits. For someone who leads a busy and stressful life, taking time out for themselves to engage in something fun and enjoyable can be incredibly rejuvenating. Whether it's attending a workshop pizza making or exploring meditative pottery, our hands-on experiences cater to all interests and provide an escape to care for your wellbeing.
