Autumn is officially here. There’s nothing like the kiss of fall in the air and pumpkins everywhere. This time of year is perfect for exploring the outdoors. The leaves are a spectacle of different shades and the weather is much cooler than the scorching summer.
Does the man in your life have a birthday in the fall? Consider him lucky and if so, here are some amazing birthday experience gift ideas to get him outside and enjoying one of the best seasons of the year.
Kayaking, Canoeing or Dinner Cruising
If you live anywhere near water, you may be aware of a few water activities in your area. Some people who live in a city where there is water, believe it or not, haven’t even tried them. Hey, we all get busy with the daily grind. If this is the case, gift the man in your life with a new adventure and even tag along. Dedicating a day to celebrate by experiencing something new is the perfect idea. Kayaking and canoeing can be very relaxing and being on the water while in control is nothing short of stimulating. If that’s not your cup of tea, than try out a lunch or dinner cruise. Many cities with lakes, rivers and oceans offer a lunch or dinner cruise that is affordable. Enjoy being on the water for an experience that you’ll never forget.
Caving and Hiking
The Earth is fascinating with many wonders. Exploring caves is a great way to spend time with the man you love and the family that binds. Connecting with the magic of nature is a great experience and also a learning experience. There are caves around many parts throughout the country, research caves in your area and plan on visiting one. A great way to make it happen is to gift the experience. Most caving experiences are about an hour or more long to walk through, so it’s great exercise as well, make sure you dress for the occasion and bring lots of water and snacks.
Race Car Driving
The weather is nice and what better way to enjoy it than by putting a helmet on and putting the pedal to the metal. For the man who loves engines, horsepower and cars, gifting him a race car driving experience will drive him to the moon and back. He will receive a lesson of a lifetime that will stimulate his focus, intellect and motor skills, with the utmost safety in mind. This experience will give him some serious bragging rights. He will carry what he learned with him everywhere he goes.
If he is a foodie, which most of us are, then this is a great time to take a food tour in your city or town. One can never learn too much about the city they live in. Experience your city through your tastebuds. Food tours offer an eclectic take on a city’s food scene. There are several tours, for instance, a food truck tour. Let’s face it, food trucks have some of the best bites around, plus they are super casual and for the most part affordable. Take him on an adventure that has you eating together. The city is your playground.
Autumn is one of the best times of the year to pitch a tent and start a fire. Put the outdoorsman to the test and reserve a camping trip. Throw in a few new camping items as an extra gift to make sure your camping trip is well supplied and off to a great start. Choose a place that has low light pollution so you can sit under the stars and enjoy nature as it’s intended to be.
Celebrating a birthday doesn’t always mean spending lots of money on luxurious or materialistic items. What it really means is spending time together and enjoying experiences that will leave an everlasting impression. It’s always a good idea to venture out to learn and experience something new.
