1.A cooking class at Sur la Table so they can have fun learning practical skills to use in their own kitchen. Whether it's "Artisan Breads at Home" or "Chocolate 101," they're sure to have a ball getting out into the world and picking up a few tricks!
2.So You Want to Start a Podcast — a book to help them catch up with the rest of the world and start turning their personal experiences into #content. I'm running out of stuff to listen to, so tell them to get moving!
3.A beautifully illustrated write-in menu book so they can record and remember all of their soirées through the years. Oh, how they'll love reminiscing on the good old days when the friend group was constantly together, and their boeuf bourguignon was an absolute hit.
4.A ticket stub diary where they can collect and organize all of their concert, sports game, museum, and travel tickets in one safe place. They are 100% gonna need somewhere to put their beloved Harry Styles/Jenny Lewis tour ticket so they can brag to their kids in 20 years.
5.A We Are Knitters scarf knitting kit for crafting their very own winter-wear. Sitting by a fire stitching away will be a cinematic moment they'll enjoy, especially if they're just learning.
6.A pair of Vibes concert earplugs if they adore going to shows but refuse to protect their ears because it hurts the sound quality. These reduce noise by up to 22 decibels without affecting the sound — a win-win!
8.A book on wilderness survival in case they want to test the limits of their ~experience~. You can't stop them from doing it, but you can try to get them to be as safe as possible!
9.A sketch book and charcoal pencil set so they can translate the beautiful world around them onto the page — not to mention look very cool and artistic while doing so.
10.A set of Table Topics that'll help them start interesting conversations with their friends, family, or even enemies, I guess! A good conversation is one of the best things about life, so anything that can help get one going is an A+.
11.An escape room board game so they can work with their friends to — you guessed it! — escape from a mad scientist who's trying to turn everyone into werewolves. Nobody wants that!
12.A set of Himalayan salt tequila glasses for the friend who mostly defines "experiences" as incredible parties. They'll feel like a real baller busting these out at their next bash.
13.An Ostrich Pillow to help them sleep anywhere, anytime. People don't tell you that with a big sense of adventure comes a big need to snooze. Ya gotta take advantage of rest when it comes!
14.Some concert tickets from SeatGeek so they can go see their favorite artists live, baby! And it'd be a shame if they had to go alone...better get one for yourself, too!
15.Some daffodil bulbs they can get outside and plant *now* for a floral explosion come spring —something to look forward to!
16.A Lifestraw personal water filter so you can always rest assured your adventure-prone person will have clean, fresh water to drink on their frequent hikes.
17.A Moleskine notebook for them to use as a travel journal. They'll love this little artifact once it's full of their doodles, notes, and taped little mementos.
18.A scratch-off map so they can keep track of the many places they've travelled to and proudly display it on their wall. A completely acceptable brag.
19.A new pair of hiking boots — these have awesome ankle support but are sneaker-like so they're comfortable and broken-in right out of the box. They'll be ready to hit the trail at a moment's notice!
20.A kombucha making kit, because making their fave strange and delicious fizzy tea using a benevolent floppy bacteria will be — in a few words — an experience!
21.Or a mushroom growing kit if they're more into the process of growing and eating fungus! These pink oyster mushrooms are adorable, tasty, and easy to grow.
22.An AirBnb Experience either somewhere they're planning on traveling or right in their backyard. They can have a photoshoot in iconic spots around New York, tree camp in Costa Rica, or even have tea with sheep in the UK!
23.A pair of binoculars so they can spot landmarks, animals, and more on their long, meandering hikes.
25.An Instax camera that'll let them capture and store their memories irl — a novel concept! They'll for sure appreciate being able to snap pics without being glued to their phone.
26.A Hunt a Killer subscription so they can become enthralled with solving a fictional murder case. Will they be able to solve the crime with the clues provided? Only one way to find out!
27.An ENO double nest hammock to help them commune with nature in the form of an outdoor nap. Naps are always good, but with a gentle breeze gently rocking their cozy cocoon? Heaven.
28.A carry-on suitcase so they don't have to pay extra on flights for checked bags but can still bring along anything they need for their journey. I once got this as a gift, and it certainly holds more than it appears!
Hope the gift-ees enjoy these experience and experience-adjacent presents!
