These days, fabulous experiences trump material things. Need confirmation, just have a look at your Instagram feed. Forget the #FOMO, expand your world views, and escape the ordinary by giving IfOnly a try. Here’s how it works. You head to their site and shop specially curated moments in the categories of sports, fashion, food, music, and travel. You'll have a lot to choose from. There are experiences that celebrate special occasions, access to hard to get tickets; special luminary led lessons and location-based tours. Select the happening, arrange a time and book. Voila! There's no need to wait! Start checking off your bucket list, go off the beaten path and book a dream excursion with IfOnly.
Choose to be charitable
IfOnly auctions special celebrity experiences with the proceeds going to the charity of the star luminary's choice. Most of these events run for a limited amount of time but, right now you can bid on meeting with Ryan Seacrest while attending a taping of American Idol. You can also try for dinner at your place with celebrity chef, Tyler Florence or visit the set of Ray Donovan. Awesome.
Make an impression
If you're hoping to spice up a date night, make a birthday special or blow her away on your anniversary an IfOnly experience delivers. Who wouldn't love a hot air balloon ride, backstage concert passes, courtside seats or a graffiti art tour?
Take the trip
Hit the road in style. Thinking about going to Cuba? Let photographer, William Vazquez be your guide in Havana. Or mush with dog sledding champion DeeDee Jonrowe on an overnight dog sled adventure in Alaska.
Foodies with an extra $10K floating around you can board a private XOJet and fly from NY to San Francisco for six different VIP private dinners. You'll enjoy fine-dining experiences with influential members of the industry: Le Bernardin with Saveur's editor-in-chief Adam Sachs, tastings with the "first lady of chocolate" Alice Medrich, Chez Panisse with S.F. Chronicle's restaurant reviewer and editor Michael Bauer, and wine with Ferry Plaza's resident expert Debbie Zachareas. Bon appetite.
Run the town
In major cities, like New York, Los Angles, Miami, Boston, etc., IfOnly can put on you on the inside track. You can check out the sights with a helicopter tour, shop with a personal stylist or nab a table at the culinary hot spot of the moment.
Say you're planning a trip to Napa and Sonoma, IfOnly can hook you up with the best tastings and tours around. Expanding the experience beyond the norm, they offer Custom Cheese and Wine Pairing Workshops, romantic, professional photo shoots, and a vineyard to table lunch at Francis Ford Coppola's Inglenook Vineyard to name just a few.
Bring your friends
You can even plan group activities. You should share your good times in person, not just on social media. Gather the squad, agree on the experience, clear the date and book.
