It happens every year, you find yourself stuck on what to get "that person." You know, the one who already has everything? Or maybe it's someone who is working on downsizing. This year consider giving experience gifts. Not only are they naturally clutter-free but they create memories the recipient will cherish for years to come. It's time to think outside the gift box and look into the gift of experience.
Giving someone the opportunity to enjoy something they love, has always wanted to do or just plain deserves is personalized and thoughtful, and the appreciation for this type of gift lasts long beyond the holidays. Bonus! Experiences make great last-minute gifts since you can almost always buy them online.
Here are a few holiday gift ideas for experiences that are sure to bring some yuletide cheer to the recipient!
Classes are perfect for those who love to try a variety of new things. The recipient can choose the class or workshop they want to take and could include anything from painting and acting to music lessons and philosophy.
Memberships to Local Attractions
Families with young children are often looking for inexpensive and memorable ways to have fun. By getting a membership to a museum or other facilities, families can benefit from free admission and earn discounts to use towards additional events or special offers.
Couples can have a date night when you purchase tickets to performances at the theatre, symphony or the opera. Season tickets often give a deep discount over individual ticket prices, and it's the gift that keeps on giving!
