Whether you’re trying to ditch material gifts this year, you’re in search of a last-minute idea, or you just want one less thing to wrap, we’re here to help with a list of giftable experiences in the Chattanooga area for everyone on your list.

For the foodie

Allow someone to experience the restaurants, architecture, and history that make Chattanooga a growing culinary destination with the gift of a food tour from Chatt Taste — choose from a downtown, MLK, Southside, mural and munch, or vegan food tour.

Or, allow friends and family to cook their own meal with the gift of a classic in-person, kids, or date night cooking class at The Sweet & Savory Classroom.

For the outdoor adventurer

Gift a guided hiking adventure with Experience Chattanooga. Bonus: tours include transportation and professional photography.

Gift your favorite thrill-seeker a hangliding or paragliding adventure with Lookout Mountain Flight Park, a skydiving experience with Chattanooga Skydiving Co., or a helicopter tour with Chattanooga Helicopters.

Climb up their list of “best gift givers” with a rock climbing class at High Point Fitness.

Book them a swincar (four-wheeled electric vehicle) backcountry tour or the chance to bike on the Tennessee River (yes, you read that right) with Adventure Sports Innovation.

For the artsy one

Gift an adult or youth pottery class at Scenic City Clay Arts, or choose from a variety of painting, drawing, and mixed media art classes at Townsend Atelier.

A gift that won’t make you look like a (gl)ass? A hands-on glass-blowing experience with the help of professional artists in downtown Chattanooga.

Give the gift of dance with a variety of class gift card options from Dance Tonight Chattanooga, including date night, first dance lessons for a wedding couple, dancing the salsa, and more.

For the sports fanatic

Give your sports-loving friends and family something to cheer about — like season tickets to the Red Wolves, CFC, or Lookouts.

Have a golfer on your hands who’s missing the green this winter? Book a tee time for them at this local indoor golf simulator + bar.

Gift a year-long membership to one of Chattanooga’s local museums, nature centers, or other cool spots:

Bonus: You can never go wrong with a gift card to The Chattery, a gift that could be located in most of the above categories — your giftee can choose a class to attend surrounding anything from mocktail making to gardening.
