Finding great gifts for men is a million times harder than shopping for women. There just aren’t the endless list of gifts for guys that there are for girls. But even if there isn’t a lot of “stuff” the man in your life needs, he’s sure to love a cool experience gift.
Thanks to LivingSocial for sponsoring this post and offering such fantastic experience gifts for men.
How many men are on your Christmas shopping list? Husband, brothers, Dad, or maybe you have grown sons? Are they tough to shop for?
I think the most difficult people for women to shop for are boyfriends or husbands. But we’re here to help with experience gift ideas that you can either enjoy together or send your guy off for an extreme adventure with his buddies.
Here are 10 experience gift ideas currently on LivingSocial. The examples I’ve included are in the Seattle area, but you’ll find most of these opportunities in the other major cities as well.
Experience Gifts for Men
- Stock Car Driving Experience
Most men seem to love driving fast. So give your guy the chance to go REALLY fast.
After a driver’s meeting and some basic instruction, these driving packages will have you racing at thrilling high speeds in an authentic, race-proven stock car with other student drivers.
- Paintball Tickets
Men also seem to love to run around chasing each with pretend guns… so gift him a day playing Paintball.
If you’re like me, you’ll send him off with his guy-friends for the day. But if you’re the active type, you’ll have a blast shooting each other.
Of course skydiving is the ultimate extreme thrill.
If your guy hasn’t yet had this “bucket-list” experience, give him a Static Line Skydiving Session which is a time-tested method of training parachutists that the military has used for more than 30 years.
- Stand-Up Comedy Show
Set up for a perfect date night of laughing along to stand-up comedy.
Search on LivingSocial for a deal on comedy show tickets.
- City Bike Tour

He’ll be so happy when you score tickets to see his favorite local football or basketball team play.
