Gifts that start with E for adults

Gifts starting with E are more abundant with themes, such as experience gifts, eco-friendly gifts, educational gifts, electric, entertainment, and exercise gifts.

Experience gifts!

No saving the best for last here! Experience gifts are awesome – no clutter and nothing to store in your house. One of these days, I’ll do an entire post on experience gifts. There is a lot of flexibility in this gift idea.

Experience gifts are simply giving the gift of an experience. You can choose to give a gift certificate or voucher, or join in with the person on the experience and do it together (which is often more fun!).

Is it that difficult to find gifts that start with E? Let’s find out!

Gifts range from hobby-related to special interests. Though hobby-related gifts sounds more tame, the person receiving it would be delighted, I’m sure. This could be a tour of a history museum or a cooking class. A spa day would be perfect for others.

For the more adventurous gift recipient, consider an experience gift like an escape room adventure. This is a great way to challenge your problem-solving skills while having fun with friends or family. A hot air balloon ride is another adventuresome choice.

Another fun experience gift is an evening of wine tasting. Many wineries offer tastings and tours, and it’s a great way to learn about different types of wine while enjoying a relaxing evening out.

Experience gifts create memories that will last a lifetime!

Eco-Friendly Products

If your friend is passionate about the environment, consider gifting them eco-friendly products such as reusable shopping bags, a stainless steel water bottle, or a set of bamboo utensils., reusable straws, bamboo utensils, or a solar-powered phone charger.

One of my favorite eco-friendly products is beeswax wraps for foods I had bought a stretchy silicon product that did not work for stretching over round bowls – it was a disappointment. I had forgotten all about the beeswax product – it worked like a charm! I’m going to buy a few extras to have on hand and to give as gifts.

Educational Gifts

Didn’t see this coming, did you? Educational gifts are a great way to show someone you care about their personal growth. Consider gifting a book on a topic they’re interested in, a language learning app subscription, or a set of flashcards. These gifts are not only economical but also promote lifelong learning.

Other apps, such as Teachable, offer so many online possibilities to learn! The “Books for Dummies” empire of self-instruction books cashed in big time. These branded niche book topics help people trying to learn how to do something on their own.

Entertainment overlaps with experience gifts. For example, an escape room could be entertainment. There are lots of people who book escape rooms as part of their birthday festivities.

Consider these entertainment options:

  • Event tickets: Concert tickets, sports, music, or theater, tickets to an event are a great way to give your special someone an unforgettable experience.
  • Online entertainment. Gift a subscription to a streaming service to enjoy movies and other media online.
  • Games. Give a new board game or card game. Buy a retro video game, or subscription to a game online.

  • Exercise classes: From yoga to spin, there are plenty of exercise classes that your man can take to stay fit and healthy.
  • Energy supplements: If your man needs a little boost to get through his workouts, energy supplements can be a great gift.

Exercise gifts are a great way to encourage someone to stay active without spending a lot of money.

Consider gifting a set of resistance bands, a yoga mat, or a jump rope. These gifts are not only affordable but also promote a healthy lifestyle.
