Gifts for the Traveler

See also

This year, take a new approach to gifting by giving your loved ones great memories instead. Whether your loved ones are lovers of food, adventure, sports, travel, or fashion, here is a unique list of ideas for unforgettable things to do.

Classes
Give the gift of knowledge. Treat your favorite foodie to a cooking course with a favorite chef, or a cooking course at a cooking school or a 5 star hotel kitchen. For the fashionista, a course in fashion sketching, sewing or textiles. For the foreign traveler a language course at an adult education center or Berlitz language school. Consider courses that hone current skills, learn new skills, or simply enrich one’s life.

Private Lessons
Does your loved one or friend already practice their passion? Perfect the passion with a one-on-one session or experience. Is the passion golf? Give a one-on-one with a golf pro. For the ultimate adventurer types, the gift of fighter pilot for a day can make one’s Top Gun dreams a reality.

Unique Dining Experience
Give your favorite gourmand a truly unforgettable experience with a fabulous chef-led tasting menu. Seek out supper clubs that offer multi-course menus of the chef’s most imaginative dishes. For an underground twist find the most interesting local pop-up restaurant.

Adventure
There is an adventure experience for every type and budget. For the outdoorsy type give an afternoon of horseback riding or rock-climbing lessons. Take advantage of the snow season and give a season ski pass. For the extreme adventurer there is skydiving and race car driving instruction.

Peronalized Tour
Give your guy or gal a chance to explore a city in a more innovative way. You can keep it local, and seek out a tour that will give her a new perspective on her town – say, an on-location tour of Boston or New York City; visit famous locations seen on the big screen. For the traveler, a personal tour guide for their destination city gives access to all things local; what better way to experience a place than through the back-door.
