  1. Oops – Forgot someone? No need to show up empty handed. Use “Print It Now” to deliver an impressive gift yourself or email our “E-card”, complete with an image and description of the experience. It’s a free delivery option that saves the day.
  2. Avoiding the mall? Save time, gas and frustration by shopping online. Excitations easy to navigate website makes finding a seal trainer experience for your niece or fly fishing lesson for Uncle Dave a cinch.
  3. Tired of giving “stuff”? Give adventure, exploration and fun – give an experience! Not only will an extreme stock car gift “wow” dad now, but as he zooms around the race track, it’ll create memories of a lifetime.
  4. Afraid of the wrong size? You gave grandma a kayak tour, but she would rather take a vintage bi-plane flight – no worries! Experiences are easily exchangeable at Excitations.
  5. Too busy to shop? Curl up with a cup of hot cocoa and shop at your leisure online. A private yoga sampler or massage for him or her will rejuvenate your gift recipient and reduce your stress, too.
  6. Too many gifts to buy? Give one experience for a family to enjoy together. A star gazing party for 40, wolf watch experience for 4 or guided city bike tour could be the start of a new family tradition.
  7. Tight budget? Boost holiday spirits and stretch your dollar with experiences for $100 or less. Let a teen take a friend to intro to archery or give mom a flying trapeze lesson or take the kids indoor skydiving. The memories are priceless.
  8. Out of ideas? You pick the price point, from $75 to $500, and let them choose the experience with Circle Choice gift packages. With just a couple of clicks, your shopping is done. It’s super easy, yet impressive and thoughtful!
  9. Thrill of last minute shopping? Give them a thrill with a fighter pilot experience, skydiving, drag racing, zero gravity flight, or a discovery helicopter flight. Who knew that so much adventure could be so easy to give?
  10. Needs to be perfect? Give a picnic at the vineyard or private sailing experience or a romantic hot air balloon ride to someone special now and enjoy an amazing experience together in the new year.
