And we mean...everyone.

No disrespect to Santa, but he’s doing things all wrong. Ya, we freaking said it.

Instead of flying around the planet lugging a heavy sack of gifts, he should take a page out of our notebook and start giving people experiences. The kinds of fun activities that create memories and ignite new passions among friends, without saddling anybody with a closet full of unused junk. (Don't pretend like you're still going to take up calligraphy.)

But fine, even experiences require the right STUFF. But that's why we let you borrow it and then come pick it up when you're done. In fact, we’ve got a gift guide to help you pair the right experience to the right giftee in your life. We even have a Santa suit if you want to look the part.

The Mom Gift


She gave you life, and now you’re going to improve hers with everything needed to achieve enlightenment... or at least an outstanding downward dog. The Yoga Basics Bundle comes with everything Mom will need to get started. Except the hot teacher from hot yoga.

The I Think We’re Dating Gift


Step 1) Secure our Pasta Night Bundle. Step 2) Invite them over for a romantic night of flirtatious pasta-making, wine and candlelight. Step 3) Do that Lady & the Tramp thing with a noodle. 4) Or don’t. 5.) Maybe, don't.

The Dad Gift


Bring out pops’ inner James Bond with the Elyx Deluxe Martini Bundle, coming with an attractive, limited-edition copper-plated shaker, bar tools and coupes. Playfully threatening him in a lengthy speech until he escapes can only serve to heighten the whole effect.

The Best Friend Gift


You provide the Road Trip Bundle and the weekend destination. They’ll provide the kind of jokes only the two of you get. You’ll both walk away with memories and the urge to do it again soon.

They were there when you needed them and, let’s face it, you will probably need them again. And they’ll show up even quicker in 2019, after you have the Laser Tag Bundle delivered to their department to blow off some steam for a few days. Nerd down. We repeat, nerd down.
