Wishlist Expands to Seattle!

We are thrilled to announce our expansion to the Emerald City! With seaside experiences, behind the scenes tours, and outdoor excursions, Wishlist is bringing you the very best of Seattle. To help you plan your next Seattle adventure we’ve rounded up a list of our favorite Seattle experiences, check them out:

 

The Pike Place Food Tour

Take a behind the scenes look at the historic Pike’s Place Market with this two-hour food tour. Wind through the bustling market place while learning about the varied history of each Market merchant, and tasting samples along the way. Visit the original Starbucks, watch how cheese is made, and duck beneath flyin’ fish at the famous Pike Place Fish.

 

Kayaking and Hiking Tour

Paddle from Shilshole Bay to Discovery point during this three-hour kayaking and hiking tour. A guide will lead you down an ancient water route used by Seattle’s earliest inhabitants. Once you’ve crossed the bay you’ll hop out for a short hike to Discovery Bluff, where you’ll have an unbeatable vantage point of the Olympic Mountains. Back at the beach, you’ll enjoy a complimentary lunch by the water.

 

Massage and Facial

Replenish your body with this massage and facial duo. Begin your afternoon with a 50-minute customized massage, designed to melt away stress and ease tension. Then, enjoy a 50-minute facial tailored to your skin type using delicate products that promote a clear, younger-looking complexion. This deluxe treatment encourages deep relaxation and purification of the mind and body.

 

Ballard Locks Kayaking Tour

Kayak through the Ballard Locks, with this three-hour kayak tour for four. Journey through Seattle’s second most visited attraction on this guided trip. As you paddle through the scenic Shilshole Bay, you will likely see seals, sea lions, osprey, great herons and other wildlife native to Seattle. This afternoon on the water is a great way to see the city and enjoy time outdoors.

 

Haunted Underground Tour

Embark on a paranormal excursion with this 90-minute haunted underground tour. Travel below Seattle’s city streets, to the underbelly of the Emerald City. Ghost hunters will lead you through the spooky Seattle underground, where pioneers walked, worked and died.

 

Indoor Simulator Golf

Master your swing with two hours of indoor simulated golf. With over 50 championship courses represented virtually, you’ll get to golf Pebble Beach, St. Andrews, Brandon Dunes and more. This simulated golf session will let you experience the world’s top courses without leaving Seattle.

My Christmas Wishlist Experience

My Christmas Wishlist Experience
They
say money can’t buy happiness. I don’t know who they are and sometimes I think they are full of it, because a pile of cash sure would make my life easier. However, if you had the choice between a nice cash bonus or an opportunity to go experience something that you would never indulge in for yourself, which option would you take?

I have been working for Wishlist for over a year and half and if there is one thing I know how to do, it is how to sell the value of an experience. You can not put a price tag on the thrill of a new adventure or buy the stamp that it leaves on your memory. Sure, an adventure Wishlist will cost you $99, but the place those moments hold in the story that is your life, truly, goes unrivaled.

As many of you know, Wishlist works with over 50 Colorado based companies to help reward their employees for hard work and dedication. Luckily, for those who work here, we reap the benefits and get to experience Wishlist first hand. This year for Christmas, my gift far exceeded my expectations. My oh-so-wonderful superiors gifted me with two suite tickets to an Avalanche game of my choice and a night at the Four Seasons Denver.

Anyone who knows me well knows that I love hockey, specifically the Colorado Avalanche. The fact that they knew this was perfect gift for me, well – brownie points, Wishlist. I jumped on the opportunity and used my gift on New Years Eve. What better way to spend the last night of 2014? The answer is, there wasn’t.

I attended the game in my new MacKinnon jersey with my best friend at my side. We made our way up to the club level of the Pepsi Center and entered our suite. Awaiting us was complimentary food and drinks. Score. The Avalanche played an awesome game, beating the Philadelphia Flyers in overtime. It doesn’t get much suiter than that!

 

Now, let’s talk about the Four Seasons for a second. That hotel is the definition of exquisite and certainly not a luxury I would treat myself to unless received as a gift. It was the cherry on top of an already perfect night. New Years Eve is a hectic night in the heart of the city, but the amenities they provide made for a seamless evening. Waking up to a beautiful view of Denver was certainly an ideal way to kick off 2015. Oh and did I mention you can find them on our Premier Getaways Wishlist?

Four Seasons

It’s safe to say this NYE was one for the books. An evening I will forever remember, cherish, and associate with an everlasting feeling of appreciation from my team at Wishlist. It’s been a big year for us. We’ve grown leaps and bounds, and have all invested so much time and energy into our success. While we work hard to promote how incomparable the gift of an experience is and how valuable showing appreciation to your staff can be, I’ve never believed it more.
