Incredible Experiences To Gift Now That They Can Enjoy Later

Clueless about what to buy that person on your list who seems to have absolutely everything already? Give the gift of an amazing experience to look forward to in 2023! Hamilton Halton Brant has all kinds of amazingly giftable experiences that your friends and family will adore! Here are just a few of our favourites.

The Experience: A Wonderful Woodsy Winter Walk

Grand Experiences’ Nith River Forest Hiking Experience is so much more than a hike. Activities on this four-hour authentic explorer’s experience include animal tracking and mastering how to build a campfire. The experience also includes a steaming bowl of Maple Chili cooked over an open fire.

The Experience: An Afternoon of Art

The Art Gallery of Hamilton has plans for some fantastic exhibits in the works for 2023. Giving the gift of an AGH Membership grants the recipient free unlimited admission to all of AGH’s upcoming exhibitions as well as discounts for a wide range of programming and reciprocal benefits to over 100 Ontario museums and galleries – all for just $55! Glenhyrst Art Gallery also offers great perks through its membership program.

The Experience: An Evening of Music

Surprise the music lover in your life with an exciting concert experience in Hamilton to enjoy later in the year. With big-name bands in the books, including Vance Joy and Shania Twain, 2023 is on track to be a stellar year for music fans in our region.

The Experience: A Swoosh Down The Slopes

The downhill ski and snowboard season at Glen Eden is on the second there is enough snow! This smaller hill in Milton has big heart and offers all kinds of snow-filled fun without the long drive. Great gift options include seasons passes for proven skiers or snow school for someone new to the sport.

The Experience: A High-Fashion Shopping Escape

The Experience:  Miles and Miles of Fresh Air Fun

The gift of an annual park pass to enjoy a selection of Hamilton Halton Brant’s conservation areas is a great way to encourage outdoor lovers to get out and explore some new trails. A Conservation Halton membership pass offers a year’s worth of access to 8 amazing parks, including Rattlesnake PointCrawford Lake, and Mountsberg. A Hamilton Conservation Authority Membership Pass provides a year’s worth of access to 11 different parks and free entry to public programming at Westfield Heritage Village. The Grand River Conservation Areas membership offers entry to 10 conservation areas and the Luther Marsh Wildlife Management Area for up to 6 people in one vehicle. Miles and miles of beautiful trails aren’t the only benefit for Royal Botanical Gardens members. Members also enjoy a range of other perks, including food and gift discounts, free parking and free admission to RBG’s Winter Exhibit.

The Experience: A Summer Craft Brewery Sip Trip

Any craft beer lover will adore a six-pack of beers from a selection of different Hamilton Halton Brant breweries. Make it even more meaningful with the addition of a homemade voucher offering to be their designated driver for an afternoon of patio hopping when the weather warms up. Check out our True Brew Path partners to plan your route and create your custom holiday six-pack. 

The Experience: A Taste of The Town
