Must read

Whether we’d like to admit it or not, consumerist culture has us all in quite a chokehold—especially during the holidays. From the Black Friday rush to never-ending holiday sales for Christmas and Hanukkah, and all the way through Valentine’s Day, it seems like a vicious chase to find the latest, greatest, and best gifts for friends, family, and ourselves. Targeted Instagram ads don’t make it any easier.

Now, we’re not by any means throwing shade at scoring your BFF a new handbag, or your dad a cool gadget from Amazon, or yourself a new pair of shoes (we’re a fashion magazine for goodness sake). But, we are saying there are great alternative options if you’re sick of the same old material items. Enter: experience gifts. If you’re bored of giving and receiving socks, beauty gift sets, or cashmere sweaters, or you can’t stand to see another “best gifts for her” roundup (sorry…), you can shake things up with one of the best experience gifts of 2022 and 2023.

From thrilling adventures to luxury escapes and relaxing spa days, an experiential gift is something that will be remembered long after the holidays are over. To help you out, we’ve put together this list of the 43 best experience gifts that cover all interests. From skydiving to wine tasting, classes ,and subscriptions, there’s something here for just about everyone in your life.

And if you’re in the scramble to find a great last-minute gift for the holidays, these take the cake! With just a few clicks, these trips, experiences, and reservations will instantly land in your inbox.
