Experiences make Great Gifts all Year Long #MakingAList Giveaway

It gets to a point where you really are not sure what to buy people for gifts. Children are easy to shop for, but the older a person gets, the harder it is. When people ask me what I want for a gift, I am really unsure how to answer. Most things you want or need,you go out and buy yourself. At some point, it all just becomes more stuff you do not really want or have the room for.

So what is a person to do?

Anytime a gift gives me time with my loved ones I think it is the best! Dinner out, entertainment or activities and travel experiences that allow us to spend quality time with one another. Gifts like these are priceless yet more affordable than you would think.

Why risk getting another ugly sweater or gadget you’ll never use? With Breakaway Experience’s Wish List you can create a list this Christmas for fun, exciting experiences from your bucket list and share it with your family and friends.

Breakaway experiences make great gifts all year long


With great experiences being added often and available all across Canada, this is a gift you will love to give and your recipient will love to receive.

Here are a few I saw that would be amazing gifts for all

Calgary Hot Air Balloon Ride


View Calgary’s breathtaking trails, provincial parks and the Canadian Rockies from a thousand feet in the air.  Enjoy the unique experience of floating gently in a hot air balloon at sunrise.

Distillery District Winter Segway Tour


Experience an in-depth tour of the historic scenery of the Distillery District and its past, while experiencing the excitement of driving a Segway. You’ll spend a few minutes learning how to ride a Segway.  Then, with a knowledgeable and charming guide, explore the history and architecture of the site as the timeline from past to present is revealed.

Explora Electric GeoBike Rally Adventure


Exploring, off-roading and riddle hunting all in one! Explora Electric GeoBike Rally Adventure, using electric GeoBikes and iPads, combines scavenger hunting & historical discovery. A green, silent and cultural game-adventure in Montebello for the whole family.

Light the Night Kayaking Tour, Vancouver


Watch the sun go down as you explore the waters off Granville Island by night on this 90 minute Vancouver Kayaking Tour. After sunset, paddle into English Bay as your LED lights illuminate the water. The Light the Night Kayaking Tour is the perfect way to relax after a long week or to enjoy while you discover Vancouver.

Adventures vary in price and fit every budget. You can give the experience or you can gift a gift certificate and let them pick their own. These are great ways to add on to a travel experience or to do something new while taking a staycation.


I recently gifted my oldest daughter with a local experience and now I have my 18 year old looking for something he would like to do. I can not wait to see which experience he chooses.
