Buy Now, Enjoy Later: Experiences As Holiday Gifts

After a year of working from home and ordering stuff online, a great gift this holiday season is the opportunity to get out of the house and do something fun in 2021.

Grab a gift card or make a plan to book your activity together.

FOR ANIMAL LOVERS AND FITNESS FANS

The Wobbly Ranch is a goat sanctuary in Snohomish which hosts goat yoga classes to offset their expenses. Get a gift certificate for your friends who love animals and fitness, and order some merch they can enjoy while they wait for classes to resume. Want to give them some Zoom yoga while they wait? Try Om Yoga Northwest or Yoga in the Center.

SKY HIGH THRILLS

Gift cards from Skydive Snohomish never expire, so it's fiendishly fun to give one to a friend and see how long it takes them to get around to using it. If jumping out of an airplane is completely out of the question, give them a flight with Balloon Depot instead. If their feet never leave the ground, take them to Future of Flight and Flying Heritage Combat Museum.


FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

The beauty of Puget Sound is unparalleled and a great way to take it all in is a whale watching trip. Book now for a 2021 excursion with Puget Sound Express. Also leaving from Edmonds, All Season Charters can take you out for whale watching and fishing during their respective seasons, or on a regular excursion any time of year. Boat party, anyone?

TAKE PART IN THE ARTS

When you buy an art class for a friend, they'll end up with a unique gift and maybe even a new hobby. Find one to take together:

Schack Art Center (jewelry, glassblowing, drawing, painting, sewing)

Covenant Art Glass (stained glass, glass fusing, Tiffany-style lampshade making)

FEELartistic Studio (pottery, glass fusing, drawing and painting for kids)

Creative Hands Art School (resin, ceramics, glass fusing, parent/child painting)

Art4Fun Studio (private classes, birthday parties, paint 'n' sip)


The Schack

FUN TO LOOK FORWARD TO

The holidays are about family but this year you've probably had your fill of togetherness at home. Surprise the kids with plans to get out and about in 2021 when everything reopens. The little ones will love Imagine Children's Museum and the whole family will have a blast at Aquasox and Silvertips games. For a new perspective on your home and the nations who came before, visit the Hibulb Cultural Center.
