Give an Experience

One of my favorite birthday surprises for my dad and my husband: Getting someone to take them up in a glider airplane. I actually contacted a guy locally whom I had interviewed for a newspaper article back in my freelancing days, and he took them both up for a small donation to his flying club. If you don't have connections, you can shop Cloud 9 Living's Experience Gifts section and search for your city. In Kansas City, I could give anything from a bull-riding lesson to a hot air balloon ride. If you want to be completely ingenious, you could go along, take a bunch of pictures and make a photo book to commemorate the occasion.
