Need a gift idea for the person who has everything? 🎁

Still have a few hard-to-shop-for people on your gift list? Wondering what to get the person who has it all? Have no fear as Groupon Day is finally here!

Today, December 17th only, Groupon is hosting their first-ever Groupon Day and offering up deals on tons of unique local experiences, including restaurants, classes, family activities, and so much more! In addition, you can also use the promo code GROUPON30 to save an additional 30% off select experiences, making for some seriously sweet deals.

A Groupon voucher could be a great way to treat that special someone to an experience rather than an item this year. Depending on what’s available in your area, you could choose from cooking classes, facials, massages, skydiving, horseback riding, winery tours, paint & wine nights, and more!

Hip Tip: Be sure to check your PayPal account as you may have received an offer for $10 off a $50 Groupon purchase when you checkout via PayPal!

Plus, these deals don’t require shipping, so there’s no need to worry about your gift not arriving in time. If you’re gifting in person, one fun idea could be to print out your voucher and place it in their stocking, or wrap it up in a few boxes nesting style as a fun joke before they reach the voucher!

Or, you can send it directly to their email at checkout, just add a personalized message and select a send date for them to receive their gift.

Check out why we love giving experiences rather than gifts!

In addition, Groupon will also be offering a chance to win fun experiences with celebrities, including a sixty-minute private cooking class with Martha Stewart to learn a few of her favorite dishes.

You can also win a 3-hour private beauty tutorial and session with celebrity makeup artist, Ariel (known on Instagram as @makeupbyariel) in a private suite at the Pendry Hotel West Hollywood, and lunch with Ariel at one of LAs most exclusive restaurants! Or, win a private tattoo session with Chris Garver, including lunch with Chris at one of his New York City restaurants!

Plus, you can follow Groupon on Instagram where they will be giving out $500 in Groupon Bucks to followers every hour between 10:00AM ET and 6:00PM ET!

    I can’t figure out the door dash Groupon. The link takes me to door dash but I don’t know what the discount is.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, these offers can vary. Which Doordash offer are you trying to grab?

    Thanks for the heads up! I was able to snag a few groupons to places that I’d already planned on going/staying for an upcoming trip!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      That sure worked out great, Kara!
