Hobby gifts for friends and family

Why hobby experiences make the best gift ideas

If you’ve never bought gift cards for friends and family before, here’s the big idea. With hobby gifts from Tinggly, the gift voucher can be exchanged against one of 100s of different experiences around the world. Activities that range from the relaxing, such as spa days and catamaran cocktail tours, to the adventurous, like 4x4 offroading in Iceland or tandem skydives. Cultural activities such as guided foodie tours around cities, and romantic activities that might include evening dinner and dance cruises, or hot air balloon flights above iconic destinations. 

A hobby gift card that lets the recipient choose what they want to do, at a time and place that suits them, can fit in perfectly with what they already love to do. And, because Tinggly gift cards are all about finding inspiration, they can also encourage people to find and develop new interests and passions.

How it works is so simple. Just select the right option from the various gift cards available according to the occasion - they make ideal travel gifts or college graduation gifts, for example. It takes just a couple of clicks to pay securely online, then you add a personal message, an address, and you’re done.

Tinggly hobby gift cards can be sent by post, anywhere in the world, direct to the recipient or to you so you can hand your gift over in person. They arrive in a stylish presentation box, made from recycled and recyclable materials.

But, because recipients may be already on their travels, your hobby gifts can also conveniently be sent by email. They make fantastic travel gift ideas, since the experiences available on each gift voucher are drawn from 100s of countries around the world.

When you send someone a hobby gift card from Tinggly, you don’t need to worry about it not being used. There are no expiry dates, so even if the voucher is pinned to the fridge or forgotten about in a drawer for a while, they’re as useful in five years as they are tomorrow.

The best hobby gifts around the world

We’re on a mission to revolutionize gift-giving. Research shows that experiences are much more satisfying for the recipient than a material gift. And, because the memories of an experience can last a lifetime, you can’t argue they’re not great value either. More and more people now say they prefer the idea of an experience as a gift not least because they’re one solution to today’s throwaway culture. But hobby gifts from Tinggly are also very eco friendly. 

We care about the future of our planet, and we know you do too. That’s why we have an ongoing plan to make our gift cards as sustainable as possible.
