28 Fun And Unique Experience Gifts For Couples

Are you looking for the best experience gifts for couples? Maybe you’re looking for a gift to give your own significant other. Maybe you’re looking to gift something to a special couple you know in your life. Maybe you just know that traveler that can’t sit still (we’ve got lots of great gift ideas for travelers here too!).

No matter who it is you’re shopping for, you’re in the right place. We’ve got experiences on experiences!

Everyone loves receiving gifts. They make people feel special. It’s even more special if the gift is an experience and not just a material object. We here at SBE always prefer experiences over physical things as we feel it’s much more personal that way. All these experience gifts for couples have something in common — they’ll have you and your loved ones doing fun activities together!

So without further ado, here is our complete list of the most unique experience gifts for couples, perfect for anniversaries, Valentine’s Days, and birthdays. Let’s get into it!

One gift buys you an entire collection of amazing experiences or getaways for the recipient to choose from.

As a return, they will also remove 5kg of polluting plastics from the oceans (with the help of Plastic Bank) and 200% of CO2 that was created during your chosen experience!
