There are many amazing things to do but people struggle to find them.
We want to show that an experience voucher can be more exciting gift than another handbag or t-shirt.
We want to motivate people to collect exciting memories rather than physical stuff.
We started Ithara because it was hard for us to buy a gift for each other. We have been trying to become minimalist and wanted to decrease number of things we own.
But we found that in Dubai - where we are proud to live - it is hard to find unique experiences and buy them as a gift. Your only option was to buy something on discount platforms - and we didn't want to give discounts to each other.
We started looking around and that's how the idea for Ithara came up. Here we are, trying to help others find exciting things to do and make nice memories with their loved ones. All of the experiences are tested by us or by our friends and families and we guarantee we list only things we'd like to gift to each other.
Thanks for joining us on this journey!

Inspired by my Grandfather's most memorable gift
I once asked my grandfather about the best gift he'd ever received. His answer took me back to when he was just 8 years old. His own granddad arranged an incredible treat—an airplane ride for him and his brother. Back then, flying was a rare thrill.
"I'll never forget it," he said with a gleam in his eye. "It was a real adventure. The plane we flew in, the places we saw from above, the excitement—it stayed with me for over 70 years."
That single, thrilling experience stayed with him, shaping his memories in a way that nothing else did.
This story is why we do what we do. We're not just about creating experiences; we're on a mission to craft moments that stick in people's minds. We want to give the kind of extraordinary experiences that become lasting memories, just like the unforgettable flight that became an inseparable part of my grandfather's life.
Our goal is simple: we want to create those unforgettable moments, those stories that people carry with them, that become a part of their lives' fabric.
