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.

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
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.
