Top 5 Reasons to Give an Experience

Why gift an experience? We’ve got 5 of the most compelling reasons to ditch the gift wrap and go for the gift card below:

Create an extraordinary, shared experience

Want to give a gift that leaves an impression? Gifting an experience opens the door to creating a memory together. In today’s fast-paced and digital world, slowing down to spend time together can earn you a top-spot as a “thoughtful gifter” amongst your circle.

No more junk!

We promise that mom does not need that egg cooking timer and dad does not need another pint glass. Instead of elbowing your way through another Black Friday aisle, find a gift that stands out among the clutter! Experiences bring long lasting happiness, now THAT’s priceless!

One gift fits all.

What do employees, grandma, couples and your brother-in-law have in common? They all enjoy DOING things! Whether you are finding the perfect gift for a person who “already has everything,” or a group gift that anyone will like, an experience aims to please the whole crowd!

Experience gifts are easy gifts.

Long gone are the days of planning ahead to shop, wrap and ship gifts. No prep required, purchasing experiences can be made in a few clicks – last-minute friendly! They allow your recipient flexibility and excitement of planning their dream outing. Afterall, the excitement building up to the experience is half the fun!

Experiences make us try new things.

We think we’re pretty cool at Blade & Timber. We love hearing “I had no idea I’d enjoy this so much” “I’ve never done something like this before.” Cross off bucket list items the whole family can enjoy from any of our sister entertainment companies! From axe throwing to escape rooms at Breakout KC or mini golf at Sinkers Lounge there’s adventure out there waiting for you!
