gift experiences

Everyone has that one person on their list. That one person who seems to have everything and keeps telling you: “they don’t want anything…” because they truly don’t want anything. These people are the biggest enigmas on your Christmas list this year which is why I have a few ideas. This year, to cut back on the stress of picking something out for them, maybe think about the things they love to do or want to do and how you can help them.

Gift an experience.

All over Canada there are incredible things to do and experience and so many of us haven’t even tried all of them! With so many things to choose from you might find it hard to know where to start, but I have a trick. Breakaway Experiences is a great website where gifting an experience is what they do along with creating a huge database of amazing adventures.

What kind of adventures and experiences?

Dark Table VancouverVancouver, BC

Adventurous dining in darkness! Without the sense of sight, the senses of touch, taste, smell and hearing are intensified, allowing a new perception of reality. Of all the places to eat in Vancouver, Dark Table is a truly unique dining experience!

Aerial Adventures –Kelowna, Nanaimo, Victoria, Vancouver

Unleash your wild side and swing and jump across cargo nets, tight ropes, rope swings, swinging logs, wobbly bridges, and more. These aerial adventures make for the perfect family outdoor adventure!

Winter Eagle Viewing Float Squamish, BC

See magnificent bald eagles in their winter habitat as you enjoy a gentle float down the Squamish and Cheakamus to witness the spectacular natural phenomenon that is the world’s largest gathering of bald eagles coming to feast on spawning wild salmon.

Toronto’s Ultimate Chocolate TourToronto, ON

This gives you a chance to let your giftee choose their own adventure anytime they want to. Making gifts for that super busy person in your life super simple since they are left in control choosing based on their own crazy schedule. Which brings me to some very good news…
