Unique Gift Ideas

Finding a gift for someone close to you is more than just buying something from a store, wrapping it up, and giving it to them. This is a very special process that will show the person that you took the time to ponder on something they would truly appreciate and made the effort to bring that experience to them.

This becomes even more true if you are shopping around for gifts for people who put more value in experiences rather than in material possessions. If you want to make the recipient feel genuinely happy, here are a few gift ideas you can look into to see which one will fit the receiver of your gift the most.

5 Unique Gift Ideas for People Who Value Experiences

1) A Cooking Course Class

This type of gift will work best for someone who enjoys experimenting with ingredients and whipping up something good in the kitchen. If the person you are buying the experience for loves spending time in a fragrant kitchen, they will love to attend a cooking class! You may also want to consider booking them for a knife skills class to help sharpen their skills, pun intended!

2) Tickets to a Special Tour of the City

For people who love culture-y activities, getting to know the city where they live is one great way to arouse their senses. There are special tours of the city that will give the participant an insider’s look as to what makes the city tick. If the recipient of your gift loves taking tours and learning new things about places, this is the one you should get for them!

3) A Seat to a Wine Tasting Event

Foodies will love this! Wine tasting events will give them an excuse to start drinking in the afternoon (hey, it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere, right?) and also get their appetite ready for dinner! Can you imagine anything better than a brief getaway to a beautiful vineyard where you can enjoy the fresh air and walk among the growing grapes, glass of wine in hand?

4) An Exotic Car Tour

If the person you’re gifting is a luxury car lover, this experience is sure to wow them! An exotic car tour will give them a chance to get behind the wheel of a supercar such as a Lamborghini Huracan, McLaren MP4, Ferrari 458 Italia, Porsche GT3,  Acura NSX, Nissan GTR, or Audi R8 Spyder. Such a tour will include time spent on the road, feeling the exhilarating acceleration, deceleration, and careful manipulation around curves.

5) A Scavenger Hunt Experience

You’d be surprised to discover that there is no shortage of scavenger hunt games constantly held all across Canada! If your gift recipient enjoys collecting clues, dissecting hints, and completing tasks to successfully pull off a challenge, this may be just the thing! With games of all types suitable for a wide range of ages, this is the perfect experience gift for families, couples, and friends alike.


When you buy a gift, keep in mind that it doesn’t always have to be a material thing. There is genuine truth to the saying “It is the thought that counts.” If you took time to consider a present that will match the personality of the person you are giving the gift to, you will be better able to find something that will make them happy.

Buying experiences may not be the same as buying them something that can be wrapped in shiny wrapping paper, but you will be giving them something that is unique and irreplaceable. You will be giving them the gift of experience. That in itself is priceless.
