If you’re looking for a gift for a young adventurous couple in your life, you’ve landed in the right place! No matter what special occasion, this article will give you plenty of gifting inspiration to make sure you give the perfect gift to the loved up couple!
Did you know that youth prefer to be given incredible experience gifts over physical things? Essentially, Millennials and Gen Z are the most curious generations who seek enriching real-life social experiences in their world full of technology. Their happiness is actually measured by enjoying and sharing new experiences rather than accumulating more stuff. If you’re interested in reading more about the growing demand for experience gifts, you can check out our previous blog - 5 reasons why Millennials value experiences over things.
Now if you have a young couple to buy for, we’ve just given you plenty of reasons to give them an experience gift for two. Luckily for them, experiences are the best when they are shared with someone you love. A new activity for the loved up couple could be an exciting, challenging or thrilling adventure for them to look back on for years to come.
Christmas Gifts for Young Couples
With a new year approaching they probably have plenty of plans and things to look forward to together. If you know they are planning on doing some travelling, we recommend an iconic landmark and attractions gift voucher. For those planning on visiting the love capital of the world, Paris, you could give a private guided Eiffel Tower experience. Or perhaps they are ready to witness the hustle and bustle of the big apple, NYC - a Statue of Liberty experience or private helicopter ride over the city would add to their trip of a lifetime!
If Coronavirus has gotten in the way of their upcoming travel plans, perhaps an adventure closer to home is in order. Gift them an alpine adventure or a summer escape. A short getaway will be something for them to look forward to after their travel plans have been cancelled.

Engagement Gifts for Young Couples
Looking for something unique and special to congratulate the happy couple on their engagement? A romantic experience gift is the perfect way to celebrate their upcoming nuptials.
Popular romantic gift ideas include hot air balloon rides, where the happy couple will float sky high and enjoy stunning 360 degree views. Commonly enjoyed with a delicious breakfast and bubbles, a hot air balloon ride is the pinnacle of romantic gift ideas.
Another great engagement gift idea is a romantic high tea for two. Gifting Owl has some great outdoor and indoor options available. The loved up couple will enjoy dressing up and being wined and dined for the afternoon.
Leaving Gifts for Young Couples
If they’re off to start a new adventure in a new city or country, it can be hard to find an appropriate leaving gift. The last thing you want to do is add extra things for them to pack in their already bulging suitcases. That’s exactly why a guided tour of their new city is a great gift idea! If they love to explore new craft breweries or trendy bars, they’ll absolutely love a walking beer tour.
If they’re excited to try authentic cuisine and get to know the locals, we recommend an authentic culinary experience gift. These are by far our most immersive and unique activities on Gifting Owl. With a private authentic culinary experience their host will take them to visit the markets where they’ll buy fresh produce before enjoying a private cooking class with a local in their home. After they learn to cook a couple popular local dishes, they’ll sit down and enjoy their meal while learning more about their host, their culture and history.
Thrilling Gifts for Adrenaline Seekers
Is this young couple continuously seeking the next thrill? A leisurely kayak or relaxing experience probably isn’t going to cut the mustard. If a thrill is what they love, we’ve got some terrifying gift ideas on Gifting Owl that’ll have the happy couple grinning from ear to ear.
If they haven’t already, this is a great opportunity for them to go skydiving for the first time. Now if they aren’t at least a tiny bit terrified of this experience, you might be out of luck. Choose from different altitude options and give them the chance to jump out of a perfectly good plane!
Another thrilling, once in a lifetime experience is cage diving with great white sharks. Not many people can say they’ve got up close and personal with this predator of the sea and live to tell the tale. This dive will be one they won’t stop talking about for years to come!
While skydiving and shark cage diving are the definition of adrenaline pumping experiences, they can be a bit pricey. Other adrenaline-fueled experiences include jet boating, rally car driving, white water rafting, canyoning and eerie ghost tours!
