Not everyone is a foodie. Not everyone needs a new sweater. For the person on your gift list who seems to need nothing, give the gift of an experience you can’t put under the tree … or find at the mall!

Here are three last-minute ideas:

Trapeze School – Who wouldn’t want to go flying through the air? The Trapeze School of New York has a “classroom” on Capitol Hill for students of all ages. It’s there that wanna-be circus stars are taught, with the greatest of ease, the tricks of the big top trade. In an 8-hour class, students will learn trapeze skills, juggling and acrobatics.

Speed Racing – For anyone who has to drive the Beltway, high speed driving lessons around the Old Dominion Speedway in Centerville, Va., is the gift that keeps on giving. A day at the tracks is the perfect gift for car lovers, NASCAR fans or adrenaline junkies you know.

Flying Lessons – Give the Top Gun on your gift list some wings with a flying lesson from GT Aviation in Fort Washington, Md. GT Aviation is a FAA-certified pilot training school, but even one-time students get to take control of the plane (alongside an instructor co-pilot, of course) for a flight around the Capitol region.
