Not all gifts are created equal, and some of the most memorable and life altering gifts are not contained within the confines of a neatly wrapped box. As we find ourselves searching for ways to connect with ourselves, our family and friends, and to the world around us, it makes sense that we turn to idea of giving experiences, rather than objects, as perfect gifts for any occasion.

Gifts of experiences are completely customizable, can fit any budget, and provide highly personalized activities that can be singular or group oriented. Whether you choose to give a hobby related excursion or provide a new adventure altogether, you can rest assured that your gift will be one of a kind.

Wine & Food Tasting

No matter where you live in the country, there is food to be explored in your area. In Seattle, its a Pike Place Market food tour, in Baltimore is a food and wine pairing by a local chef, in a coastal southern town it may be tasting fresh catches from the sea dockside. Wherever you, or your loved one lives, there is undoubtedly a food exploration excursion to be enjoyed. This type of gift creates a deeper appreciation of the local area, and can inspire future outing ideas for everyone involved.

Fun In Learning

Oftentimes people have interests that they would love to become involved in but fail to follow through with the steps necessary in order to do so. Providing the course, or a class, or participation in an educational experience can open many new doors and fulfil lifelong dream. A class in flyfishing, cooking, sailing, music, and any hobby you can think of can be turned into a thoughtful gift that can even be shared with others in a group event.

A Special Touch

Upgrade your family or friend’s weekend getaway by elevating your outdoor experience. While glamping and guided tours have become increasingly popular ways of hitting the trails, many times you are spending your time with others who have also booked the trip. For a truly personal and inspiring adventure, consider taking a tour of the beautiful Grand Canyon with Canyons And Chefs for an experience of our beautiful country like no other. These guided tours culminate with professional chef prepared meals, meaning all that you and your guests have to do is take it all in and enjoy. This type of experience is perfect for girls trips, family vacations, or couples romantic excursions.
