Next time you are trying to come up with the perfect gift for a family member or friend, consider giving them an experience. A Stillwater experience is the perfect gift idea whether the individual lives outside of Stillwater or locally. Anyone would appreciate a Stillwater attraction, event, dining, and maybe even a stay in one of our award-winning hotels.

Experiential gifts are extremely easy to put together and will most likely be viewed as much more personal and thoughtful. For instance, members of the Visit Stillwater team have spent years recommending some of the following gift ideas for the numerous requests they receive from locals, as well as individuals outside or our community, looking for a perfect gift for a family member or friend:

  • Season tickets to Town & Gown Theatre or OSU Allied Arts performances
  • Ticket to the annual Tumbleweed Calf Fry
  • Gift certificate for a round of golf at a local course or Sky Golf to practice the perfect swing
  • Family-Fun at the Oklahoma WONDERtorium
  • Paint a mug at the Prairie Arts Center

Or, if you want to put together a longer interactive experience, we have helped folks with ideas for a Stillwater weekend get-away such as:

  • Weekend stay at one of our lodging properties
  • Tickets to an OSU Athletics event
  • Gift certificate to get their game-day gear
  • Gift certificate for delicious meals at Stillwater’s unique restaurants 

Of course, the gift will often be even more special if the experience includes spending time with the gift giver. The options are limited only by your imagination.  Or, the imagination of the Visit Stillwater team members who all love nothing more than to assist residents and visitors by putting together romantic weekend stays, girl’s get-away trips, guys day out, or family-friendly weekends to provide long-lasting memories experienced in America’s Friendliest College Town!
