Experience Gifts: Unique Ideas for Creating Memorable Moments Together


When I was a kid, my mom used to take me on trips to the beach. We'd hike through the dunes together and watch for birds as they flew overhead. These days, I'm lucky if I get more than two hours out at sea without seeing clouds roll by or an occasional pelican fly past us on its way home. So when it comes time for me to travel somewhere new with friends or family members (or even just myself), some experiences make me feel like a kid again—like stargazing on a camping trip or taking sunrise yoga classes at a nearby park.

Go on a Hike

Hiking is an excellent way to connect with nature and get some exercise, but it's also one of the most popular activities you can do with your family. When planning a hike, there are three things you'll want to keep in mind: what kind of terrain and weather conditions you're going for (the more rugged, the better), how long your trip will be (the longer it is, the more likely someone will get tired), and how much gear each person should bring along (the more stuff they carry on their back or in their pockets/bags).

The best way to plan a hike is by talking with local experts who know exactly where trails are located around town—ask around at community centers or libraries! You could even consider hosting an event where people can gather together under one roof during lunch hour every day for weeks beforehand so everyone has plenty of time together before heading out into nature again later this summer season!

Take a Sunrise Yoga Class at the Beach

You can take a sunrise yoga class at the beach. This is a great way to get in some exercise and spend time with your partner. It’s also an opportunity for you to relax and unwind after a long day of work or school, so don’t forget your yoga mat!

To do this activity, first pick out your favorite place on the beach that has good sunsets (or if it's winter, try looking for other places where there's snow). Then think about what kind of clothing you'll need—a pair of shorts and a shirt? Sandals? Flip-flops? Make sure they're comfortable enough, so they won't make you feel uncomfortable while doing this activity; after all, we want this particular experience to last longer than just one night!

When choosing which location will work best for both parties involved (i.e., husband + wife), consider whether either person prefers more privacy or if they would rather be more visible during their time together (which could lead to them being more open). If both parties prefer being out in public but still want some privacy during their session together then go ahead with whichever option works best!


Stargazing is one of the most romantic things you can do with your partner. It's also a great way to get acquainted with the night sky, which can be quite beautiful and inspiring. But what exactly are you looking for when stargazing?

  • The North Star: This is an important star that marks true north in the night sky. You can find it by following these steps:
  • Gaze up at Polaris (the brightest star in Ursa Major). If you have trouble locating this constellation, then try another way around—for example, if you live near Chicago or New York City, then look for Auriga instead!
  • Once located, Polaris in relation to other constellations along with Ursa Major(s), mark where they meet on each side of its axis, pointing towards Earth's northern hemisphere (which means facing southward). They will be approximately 90 degrees apart from each other along our horizon line as seen from Earth's surface so remember how far off course we've traveled tonight because we're still going through space after all...

Attend a Cooking Class 

Cooking classes are a great way to experience something new and exciting. A cooking class can be a date night or even an opportunity to learn something new with friends. You'll get to hang out with your partner while they teach you how to make the perfect meal!

Cooking classes are also fun because they allow you and your friends/family members to bond over food—and nothing else. It's like having your private birthday party every time someone makes something delicious for everyone else in the group!

Have an At-Home Spa Day

A spa day is a perfect way to enjoy the benefits of a day at a spa without having to pay up. At-home spas are all the rage these days, and they're great for people who want to spend less money while still getting pampered. (If you're looking for something more affordable than an in-person treatment at an actual spa—or if your schedule just isn't conducive to booking appointments—check out these tips on how to set up your own makeshift version.

Here are some ideas:

  • Make your mask using leftover makeup or foundation from last night's date night! Or use face masks from Target that cost less than $5 each.
  • Get facials together as couples (or friends). You could take turns giving each other massages or getting pedicures together! If there's anything better than lying down as someone else does all the work for you...I don't know what it would be!

Look Out for Meteor Showers and Lunar Eclipses

  • Meteor showers are caused by the Earth passing through debris from comets. Between January and April, you can look for them when the Earth passes through a swarm of particles left behind by Halley's Comet.
  • Lunar eclipses are caused by the moon passing between Earth and Sun, which causes an eclipse to occur on the earth's surface. There are several types of lunar eclipses: total (when totality lasts at least 1 minute), partial (when only part of our planet is covered in darkness), penumbral (when only parts of our planet are covered in darkness) and partial-penumbral (this type lasts anywhere from 1 second up to 2 minutes).

Read Poetry Together

Poetry is a form of art that everyone can enjoy, and it's an especially great way to celebrate the special moments in your life. There are so many kinds of poetry—from funny to evocative—that you're sure to find something you love. You can also find online resources for finding new poetry that suits your tastes:

  • The Internet has plenty of websites where people share their own writing with others around the world. Many of these sites offer a wide range of genres (such as love poetry), so there's likely something on this list that will work well for you!
  • Poetry inspires us all: whether we're reading it or hearing others read it aloud, learning about this form helps us understand ourselves better through our own experiences...and gives us hope for our future selves when we look back at how far we've come already!

There are experiences you can give to others that will create lasting memories

  • Experiences are more memorable than material gifts.
  • Experiences can be shared with friends and family or even people you don't know.
  • Examples of experiences that create lasting memories include: skiing at a remote location, hiking through the mountains, tasting a new type of food for the first time (or trying something new), visiting an art museum or museum exhibit together as a family unit.


You can’t go wrong with these ideas. They’re simple, but they do require some of your time and effort. And you should feel good about giving them because they show how much you care about the person you’re giving the experience to. The reward for all this work is an amazing memory together—and we promise it will last forever!
