Add Experiences & Activities to Your Wish List

Most times, people look at making wish lists as listing things they desire.  But, for many, experiences mean so much more than stuff.  What are some of the activities you’ve always wanted to try and do but just haven’t or haven’t focused yourself on saving money towards?  Or how about activities you’d like to do when you’re on vacation?  Why not add them to your wish list?

One trick to try and figure out the activities you’d like to add is filling in the blanks to these few sentences:

I’ve always wanted to try ________________.

I’ve always wanted to learn ________________.

I’ve always wanted to visit ________________ and do ________________.

I’ve been thinking about doing ________________ for a while but haven’t gotten around to it/haven’t had the money for it.

A goal I’ve always wanted to work on is ________________ but I need to do ________________ first.

I’ve always wanted to see ________________.

I’ve always wanted to meet/get an autograph from ________________ but don’t know how to make that happen.

I’ve always wanted to go on a ________________ retreat.


Here are some quick ideas to help you brainstorm on the experiences and activities you’d be most interested in:

  • Rounds of golf at your favorite golf course or that course you’ve always wanted to try
  • Cooking classes
  • Flying lessons
  • Skydiving
  • Skiing (water or snow)
  • Zip lining
  • White water rafting
  • Various tours (could be city or themed like a food tour, drink/spirit tour, walking architecture tour, boat tour, helicopter tour…you get the idea)
  • Dining (is there a fancy restaurant you always wanted to try?)
  • Skills or hobby classes (woodworking, knitting, crocheting, pottery, glassblowing, etc.)
  • Learning a new language
  • Become more physically fit (could be running, cycling, walking, swimming, etc.)
  • Scuba Diving/Snorkling
  • Hiking or hiking tours
  • Rock climbing
  • Music lessons
  • Dancing lessons
  • Yoga classes
  • Hot air balloon ride

Maybe you know specifically where to find the activity.  If you do, make sure to list it in the gift details.

Maybe you don’t know how to make these things happen.  That’s okay, too!  This is part of what makes Giftster a truly universal wish list registry.  You can list absolutely anything you want on your list!  Just even simply saying “I’ve always wanted to try this and don’t know how to make it happen,” could be enough for some gift givers to go off of to give you a gift that you will never forget.

Take the leap!  Log on to Giftster and add some of those experiences and activities to your wish list today.
