It’s the most wonderful time of the year — until you start piecing together your gift list, of course! Luckily, we’re here to take the stress out of shopping this holiday season. Use our cheat sheet of ideas to match the perfect gift to the right person. If you’re still not sure what amazing experience to get someone, a GetYourGuide gift card lets them choose from thousands of things to do around the world.

1. For the street foodie

The street foodie doesn’t settle for chain restaurants. Oh no, you’ll find them hopping from food truck to hole in the wall no matter if it’s early morning in Tokyo, dinner time in Valencia, or midnight in Bangkok.

2. For the fine diner

We get it: eating a taco in a crowded market can get real messy, real quick. The fine diner swaps tacomobiles for a three-hour dinner cruise in Prague or a candlelit four-course dinner in Budapest.

3. For the beer lover

Go ale out this holiday season by gifting a ho-ho-hoppy experience. The beer enthusiast in your life can learn all about Berlin’s brewing history, sample Belgium’s famed brews, or enjoy a fresh pint of Guinness in Dublin.

4. For the chef

This isn’t a gift, this is an investment in your own taste buds! Treat your amateur chef to a tiramisu workshop in Rome or a pizza cooking class in Naples and reap the tasty rewards upon their return.

5. For the wine connoisseur

Those with a more sophisticated palate (or just love a glass or two) can sip, swill, and savor some of the world’s finest wines in Bordeaux, Tuscany, and Milan.

6. For the chocoholic

Know someone with a sweet tooth? Satisfy their sugary cravings with a trip to heaven aka a chocolate making workshop in Brussels or a chocolate-tasting walking tour in Paris.

7. For the adventurer

“Relaxing” simply isn’t in an adventurer’s vocabulary. They’re the get-up-and-go kinda people. Those who swap days by the pool for sea kayaking in Dubrovnik or snowshoeing in Tromsø.

8. For the adrenaline chaser

If the adventurer can’t sit still, the adrenaline chaser can’t keep their feet on the ground. They’re always chasing their next high, which usually involves jumping out of a plane or bungeeing off a bridge.

9. For the underwater thrill-seeker

While swimming with sharks may sound crazy to you and me, some thrill-seekers love nothing more than taking the plunge with nature’s deadliest predators.  

10. For the mermaid and merman

Travelers who love leaving dry land behind to explore underwater worlds are probably already dreaming of that bucket-list worthy snorkel adventure around the Great Barrier Reef or an eco-friendly dive with turtles and dolphins.

11. For the hiker

Have they got all the gear but no idea of where to go? Fuel their wanderlust by pointing them in the direction of amazing hikes around the world, including in the Hollywood Hills, along the Great Wall of China, and across glaciers in Iceland.

12. For the history buff

We’re making it easier than ever to step back in time to see amazing artifacts. Let your history buff journey to the pyramids of Egypt, tour the famous British Museum, or visit over 30 of Berlin’s finest museums.

13. For the art historian

Let your favorite art aficionado visit the world-class gallery of their choice. Whether they choose to skip the line at the Orsay, Rijksmuseum, or any other gallery, we promise it’ll be worth the Monet.

14. For the wildlife fanatic

Swap a cuddly toy lion for the real thing. Give a truly wild gift and let a loved one see the Big 5 in action in the Kruger National Park, Nairobi National Park, or South Africa’s Garden Route Game Lodge.

15. For the architecture geek

If someone in your life loves nothing more than marveling at sleek skyscrapers, satisfy their craving with an architecture tour like these in Chicago and New York.

16. For the little ones

Guarantee big smiles on little faces with an action-packed day out. Take your pick from Disneyland Paris, the Harry Potter movie studios in London, and more.

17. For the big kids

Who doesn’t love splashing around at a waterpark? Treat your not-so-little ones to a fun-filled trip to some of the world’s greatest waterparks, including Dubai’s Aquaventure and Bali’s Waterbom.

18. For the VIP

Nothing says VIP quite like a helicopter flight. Book a sightseeing chopper ride in locations around the world, including New York, Dubai, Monaco, and Cape Town, and let a loved one live the high life.

19. For the social media influencer

Help someone up their social media game with a top-rated Instagram tour. They can strike a pose in Bali or add some uniqueness to their feed with a Polaroid tour of Paris.

20. For the wannabe pirate

We might not be able to offer any treasure, but we can guarantee unbeatable maritime adventures for sailing enthusiasts. Take your pick from a catamaran trip in Santorini, a sunset cruise in Mykonos, or a sailing adventure in Palermo.

21. For the city explorer

From Kyoto to Havana to London, the buzz of a big city is irresistible for this person on your gift list. Help them tick another city off their to-go list with a walking tour.

22. For the pedal pusher

If your city explorer has a need for speed, then bike tours are a great way to discover a new city, especially in the pedal friendly cities of Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and San Francisco.

23. For the techie

Treat your favorite techie to a glimpse into the future with a show at Tokyo’s famed robot restaurant. They’ll enjoy a 90-minute performance that features robots, dancers, samurais, and ninjas.

24. For the gang

Take the gang on an exhilarating hot rod tour of Berlin. You’ll spend two hours whizzing around the city’s top sights including the Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz, and Gendarmenmarkt.

25. For the bestie

Go the extra mile for your BFF. Enjoy a Broadway show like The Lion King or Wicked or book a hair-raising skydive experience that you’ll talk about for years to come.
