The holidays are upon us and we all have one of those people in our life that’s hard to shop for. Is your mother in law always looking for the next best thing? Do you have an incredible teacher you want to celebrate? Work with someone who deserves a little something special? This year gift experiences! 


1. Food Tour Gift Certificate

Keep the celebrating going all year long and gift them an awesome experience for when the weather warms up. Have a list of places you want to try but haven’t gotten around to yet? Knock them all out at once with a Reno Food Tour! Instead of going to one place for dinner, you and your friends can taste through an entire Reno neighborhood. Our food walks feature excellent Reno restaurants in either Midtown or Downtown. You’ll taste food from several restaurants while learning about Reno’s art and history. A food tour gift certificate makes a fantastic gift for your food-loving friends.

2. Cooking Class

Calling all foodies! Another food-focused option is a cooking class. Nothing To It Culinary Center offers a wide array of courses in Reno. Tackle a new dish (maybe a sushi class), cuisine (food from Provence), or technique (cooking with cast iron). When the class is done, you get to eat a delicious meal that you cooked yourself.

3. Broadway Show 

Give the gift of the performing arts! Nothing beats the sights and sounds of a Broadway Show. Check out Broadway Comes To Reno at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts. There’s nothing quite like a live performance with a live orchestra and you can share that joy. Stop by Wild River Grille  before the performance for a curated pre-fixe meal that’s themed to the show. Who ever you treat with this will remember it for years to come.

4. TopGolf

Have that person in your life who counts down the days till the links open? Gift them the experience of indoor golfing! You don’t have to be a golfer to be excited about a day at TopGolf. TopGolf at Silver Legacy is a virtual reality experience where you can play Zombie Dodgeball, shoot hockey, play football, and practice your golf swing, and that’s just to name a few.

5. Sleigh Ride

Fulfill someone’s holiday Jingle Bell dreams with a sleigh ride in beautiful Lake Tahoe. The sleigh ride travels along spectacular Lake Tahoe and through towering pines.  You can even have a private narrated tour with opportunities to stop listen to stories & poems, sing songs and snap those special photos to capture unforgettable holiday memories.
