Everyone has that one person on their gift list who is difficult to shop for. Maybe they seem to have everything or just don’t like receiving things. That’s where Cloud 9 Living comes in. This Boulder, Colorado, based company is making the “give an experience” concept (rather than another blender, necklace, tie gift) extremely popular. And personally, I think it’s a brilliant idea. In fact, you can even consider it the perfect gift experience!
When Cloud 9 Living asked if I’d like to try their gift-giving service I jumped at the chance. And I have to say the experience was fantastic. My first choice among the many “gifts” they offer was a Downtown Minneapolis Food Tour for two. I was so excited to get some time with my husband, but as luck would have it we ended up without a babysitter. Being that that was the last food tour of the season I decided to opt for something else, and that was a deep tissue massage at the upscale Hotel Ivy in Minneapolis. Let’s just say it’s going to be difficult to go anywhere else for a massage. I felt like I had been swept away to a faraway land. Plus, the entire process with Cloud 9 Living was seamless. I was able to make the appointment at my convenience and enjoy a morning of pampering. True delight.
With 1,700 experiences in 43 regions you won’t have a difficult time finding something for that special someone. Flying lessons, pottery classes, hot air balloon rides food tours and a variety of spa treatments are just a few of the gift ideas. Remember when I flew a plane? You can give that as a gift experience! Simply shop and pay online.

You can choose to have the gift delivered by mail. The certificate arrives in an elegant box or via email.
