Sometimes the best present is just being present with the ones you love. We believe good times are always better when good people experience them together. This year instead of looking for the perfect item to leave underneath the tree, why not look for an experience that can be shared? Memories are timeless, unforgettable AND they don't take up unwanted space. Go hands-on for the holidays and give the people on your shopping list something they REALLY want.

A Class They Won't Want to Skip

Atlanta Wine School? Enrollment, please! Vino Venue offers cooking classes, self-serve wine machines, wine accessories and gifts, and an ever-changing menu of chef-inspired dishes. Give them more than just a dining experience. Give them a wine bar, a cooking class, and an experience as delicious as it is fun.

Who to Give it To: 

Wine enthusiasts, foodies, home cooks, or anyone looking to have a nice night out.

Pinot and Picasso 


Raise a glass and dip your brush! Painting With A Twist is a fun way to unleash your inner artistic talent. Put together your own private group or make some new friends along the way. Regardless, they'll leave with some awesome new artwork and the desire to do this fun activity more often.

Who To Give It To:

The artsy types, couples, girlfriends, teachers, and moms.

All You Can Eat Meats

How about a game of red light, green light - the culinary version? Give them an offer they can't refuse. An all-you-can-eat lunch or dinner with savory meats ranging from lamb and bottom sirloin to chicken and filet mignon. Unlimited sides include garlic mashed potatoes, cheesy bread made from Heaven's personal kitchen, and the salad bar of all salad bars. Where is this magical place you ask? Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse. Word to the wise: come hungry.

Who to Give it To:

The special guy in your life, foodies, in-laws (if you're still trying to impress them)

Atlanta's Best Steak

Treat yourselves to one of the finer things in Atlanta, and life in general, at McKendrick's Steak House. Their white linen tablecloths, soft lighting, and dark wood interiors make anyone swoon and they're the perfect complements of the exemplary steak and seafood dishes. You may have noticed our fancy tone while telling you about this one. That's because this is a fancy dinner. Make sure to dress up before you eat up.

Who to Give it To:

Steak lovers, seafood lovers, dads, husbands, brothers, anyone who loves fancy dinners

A Date to the Day Spa

Spa gifts are pretty much undefeated. A duet massage with your sweetheart. Manis and pedis with your best friend. Whoever the lucky recipient is will love their present and love you all the more. Give the gift of relaxation and rejuvenation and leave your worries with Woodhouse Day Spa.

Who to Give it To:

Girlfriends, moms, daughters, couples, moms-to-be

A High-Flying Adventure

Take the thrill seekers in your life on the ultimate ride - one that goes 55 feet above the ground and through the trees! Buy them tickets to go zip-lining at Treetop Quest and become known as the best gift giver ever. This unforgettable spring and summer experience is best enjoyed with others. After all, somebody has to record video!

Who to Give it To:

Outdoor enthusiasts, kids, grandkids, teenagers, fitness gurus, adventurists

A Staycation Worth Repeating

This is actually the best gift on this entire list. Why limit them to just one experience, when you could give them a full weekend's worth in Dunwoody? After all, Dunwoody is Your Holiday Haven. Have breakfast with Santa, watch holiday movies under the stars, learn how to make Christmas cocktails or an ice cream snowman, and much more. Adventure, entertainment, dining, and relaxation all in one convenient location, and all in one weekend.

And with other Atlanta holiday experiences in reach, your options are truly limitless. See Garden Nights, Holiday Nights at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, check out the Georgia Aquarium's Festival of the SEAson, go tubing down Snow Mountain, or immerse yourself into Santa's Fantastical right next door in Sandy Springs. Who knew the perfect gift for someone lies just 10 miles north of Atlanta? We did. And now you do too. Give them a staycation. You might just give them a new holiday tradition.

Who to Give it To:

Anyone looking to #DiscoverDunwoody!
