What do you gift someone who has all the ‘stuff’ they need? Experiences! Birthday presents, Mother’s Day gifts, and Father’s Day presents are all sorted when you give the gift of a memorable bonding experience that the whole family can enjoy together!
We’ve found one of the best gifts for kids, friends, your partner, even yourself! Nope, it’s not more ‘stuff’ (we know our kids’ playrooms are chocka right now). How about gifting an awesome experience instead – one that your kids can do with you as a family? Seek Sophie has exciting gift experiences all in one place from intertidal walks to pottery classes, and Mongolian Yurt ‘getaway’ experiences where kids can learn survival skills, roast marshmallows on a fire that they build themself and more – yes all right here in Singapore!
Gift experiences, make memories you can keep forever
Whether you are looking for a gift for Dad for Father’s Day, a present for junior’s birthday or something to say congrats with, gift an experience that the whole family can enjoy together! That way you’ll cut down on buying more products (how many times has your kiddo played with a new toy just once before it gets forgotten?) Gifting an experience gives you the chance to create memories together while doing the experience together – you’ll have fun bonding, upskilling and making memories as you support local businesses – triple win!
There’s a whole lot of experiences to gift on Seek Sophie ranging from:
1. Gift experiences for creatives
Seek Sophie has a bunch of creative workshops like letting loose and doing graffiti art on the walls at a cool warehouse location, restoring upcycled ceramics, pottery workshops, or learning how to do paper marbling! Another fun idea is the Splat Spin & Paint art workshops at a splatter paint studio where you can create your own canvas of art to take home!
2. Gift experiences for the adventurous
For those with a glint in their eye, there are lots of adventurous activities where you can get a real sense of chartering the unknown (yes even here in Singapore)! Go on a Mongolian Yurt ‘getaway’ with campfires, survival skills, outdoor cooking and a movie under the stars! Discover WWII bunkers, off-the-beaten-track nature trails, hidden war ruins, or splash around with ‘leg-paddled kayaking‘ where you get to shuck fresh mussels and cook in the wild!
3. Gift experiences for nature lovers
There are visits to a bee farm (you’ll get to taste honey, don a beekeeper’s suit and learn about bees on a secret rooftop), or for sea-lovers you can go on a 2-hour Intertidal Walk (even little ones as young as three will love this!) Learn how to spot hermit crabs, starfishes, anemones, and other interesting animals with the help of your expert guides. Or how about checking out an insect farm or looking for flying lemurs on a night nature walk?
4. Gift experiences for foodies
There are so many restaurants in Singapore but how about something truly unique to gift foodies? Experience private dining as you forage for edible plants or enjoy farm-to-table Peranakan cooking (learn to cook or sit back and watch) at a beautiful kampong home where you’ll get to enjoy the meal with friends or as a family!
Buy a gift card, let the birthday boy/girl decide what experience to try!
Besides gift experiences, Seek Sophie also has gift cards. Gift cards can be used on any experience and don’t expire, while gift experiences are specific to only that experience. Gift cards (from $20) are a great option for when you don’t know what to buy but want to gift something unique!
