We all have one person on our holiday list that is difficult to shop for. Those people that already have everything you can think of to buy them and make finishing your holiday shopping difficult year after year. This year, think outside the box with experiential gifts that will make memories for years to come. Gifts of experiences are unique and perfect for everyone on your holiday shopping list.
If you are shopping for a thrill seeker on your list, a car racing experience may be just what you’re looking for. Various racetracks around the country such as the NASCAR Racing Experience offer various packages to allow racing fans to get into the action. Choose everything from a ride along with a professional driver to a World Champion Race Experience. Experiential gifts do not get much faster than this!
The World Champion is by far one of the best one day driving experiences offered at NASCAR Racing Experience! You drive a NASCAR race car for (6) back to back 8 minute solo racing sessions, a total of 48 minutes on track. Plus you’ll pull into the pit for pit stops in between all racing sessions to receive one on one feed back from your personal spotter. Work on achieving your top speeds each and every racing session in this amazing World Champion experience. The World Champion is recommended for the hard core racer and race fan.
If there’s a foodie on your list consider looking into local cooking lessons as you complete your holiday shopping. If you’re lucky enough to have a Sur la Table in your area, the store offers a wide variety of cooking lessons. Classes vary seasonally and offer something for every taste and cuisine preference. Gifts of experiences can also offer something for your recipient to learn.

If you have a history buff or art fanatic on your list, perhaps a museum membership would be the perfect gift. Find a nearby museum that lines up with their passions. Then, purchase a membership to give your lucky recipient a year of joy in one gift. Gifts of experiences do not have to just be a one-time event. A membership is a gift that keeps on giving all year long.
