Philadelphia experiences make great gifts. Material items rock, but sometimes the best holiday presents are things you can do with the people you love.

There’s nothing like unwrapping a thoughtful gift filled with love and care. Sometimes, though, the best things to give are gifts that keep on giving. Experiences, such as tickets to events or day passes to cool places, are super memorable and fun presents to give. This holiday season, consider gifting something to do.

Boundless opportunities are present in Philadelphia for giftable experiences. This city is teeming with things to do and see. You should gift something that your loved one wouldn’t typically shell out the cash for, like a show they’ve been wanting to see, or a spot they’ve been itching to check out.

We have compiled just a few ideas to get you inspired this holiday season. Let us make you put your thinking cap on to wow someone this year. Gift an unforgettable experience in the City of Brotherly Love and get involved in the fun. There’s nothing like receiving a really cool memory rather than a physical thing as a gift.

Here are some Philadelphia experiences that make great gifts this holiday season:

  • Tickets To A Sporting Event

    Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers

    This is an easy, crowd-pleasing gift this holiday season. Tickets to say, a Sixers game, will always put a smile on a sports lover’s face.

  • Dinner Cruise

    Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One - Dinner with Maneet Chauhan, Leah Cohen and Amanda Freitag presented by Norwegian Cruise Line

    Dinner cruises, such as the one on the Spirit of Philadelphia, are always a great time. Tickets to get on this ship will get you a dinner and a dance party whenever you’re feeling fancy. This gift is great for those who like to dress up and dine out.

  • Magic Cocktail Making

    Potion Making at The Cauldron Philadelphia is an immersive class that makes for a perfect gift. You’ll step into the imaginary worlds of your childhood through molecular mixology, science & technology. After receiving a technology-filled magic wand, you cast a pouring spell with your wand to receive a welcome drink from the maw of a magical creature. You are then seated at a magic wand-interactive workstation where you brew two cocktails, each of which has different properties and effects.

  • Escape Room

    Are you giving this to someone who likes to feel smart? Consider an escape room experience for them, then. Escape rooms, such as Gotham Escape Room in Center City are really cool to do. Gift a reservation and escape the room together!

  • An Ice Show

    Disney On Ice‘s shows at Wells Fargo Center typically fall on or around Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve. Tickets to the shows make great gifts for kiddos or those with kiddos. It’s a fun time all around.
