What is a bucket list?

The idea of a bucket list became popular by the Bucket List movie starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. It is a list you make with ideas about things you’d like to accomplish in your life time.

Though like the movie, many people fill it with big travel plans or they might wonder “What are the top 10 bucket list items?” It can also include simple and unique ideas that you’ve never tried before, but would like to experience.

1. Take a cooking or baking class

Taking a cooking or baking class can seem daunting and intimidating, but it is an incredibly rewarding experience! Not only will you learn techniques to better your culinary skills, you’ll also get to try a number of recipes that challenge the palate.

Plus, the friends and connections you make in the class can help support your journey as you explore more flavors in the kitchen. It’s a great way to add something new to your skill set without having to commit too much time or energy.

Even if you don’t fancy yourself a master chef, signing up for a cooking or baking class could be just the thing that helps take your meal prep routine from boring to beautiful – your taste buds will thank you. You can even get a DIY macaron kit for home if you chicken out.

2. Go axe throwing

Axe throwing is quickly becoming the latest trend. It’s a fun and exciting way to spend time with friends or family while getting rid of stress. Not only will you have an adrenaline-filled experience, but you also get to show off your skills by competing through a game of target throwing.

Visiting a winery is an excellent way to spend an afternoon, especially if you love wine and great scenery. 

There’s nothing quite like sampling different wines, learning about the process that goes into crafting each one and visiting the vast vineyards where it all begins. 

You can also look forward to plenty of amazing views, depending on the location of the winery you choose – some are set: high in the hills, while others are nestled in rolling valleys – as well as activities like hiking through the vineyards, participating in a tour of their facilities, and getting insight into how each wine was made and how best to pair it with food.

4. Go to a fancy spa

Visiting a fancy spa is a great way to relax and pamper yourself. It’s the perfect excuse to step away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and take some time out for much needed rest and relaxation.

The tranquil atmosphere at a fancy spa coupled with luxurious treatments will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. You can indulge in massages, facials, body wraps, soaking pools and so much more – all while being surrounded by beautiful surroundings. 

Don’t forget to make use of the pampering amenities like saunas, steam rooms, jacuzzis, hot tubs and even meals served right to your treatment room! Fancy spas provide the perfect opportunity for a fun yet indulgent day out.

If you’re looking for something very special and unique, why not name a star! 

It’s a great way to honor someone, celebrate a milestone and make special memories make memories to show how much you care. It’s a creative way to express your feelings, whether it be celebrating the birth of a child or commemorating someone special in your life or maybe it’s a milestone birthday. 

With so many stars up in the sky, it’s nice knowing that one of them has been named after someone important to you. Plus, there are STAR REGISTRY services available online that provide the latitude and longitude coordinates for you so you can view your star up close.

You can even choose the name of the star for yourself! Naming a star is definitely an experience that will be remembered for years to come.

Making big events happen starts with proper planning. If you hope to attend an amazing event, it’s important to think ahead and make a plan of action. 

Planning gives you the time and ability to get your ducks in a row so your attendance can be as smooth as possible. Consider factors such as transportation, lodging, tickets, and further costs for meals or activities related to the event. 

Additionally, look at the schedule and try to set aside other commitments so there are no conflicts with attending the event. Planning ahead is key when it comes to enjoying successful events without any hiccups!

Going to a tea tasting is an amazing way to broaden your horizon and spread your knowledge about tea. Tastings can be very informative and open you up to new flavors and combinations you may have never even thought of before.

If you’ve never been, it can feel intimidating but don’t let that get in the way of exploring. You will learn what kind of florals and spices make the tea special.
