There’s a growing trend in gift giving where instead of giving objects or items as possessions, people are turning to gifts that focus more on an actual experience. This newfound shift allows children, friends, family, and more to enjoy all that life has to offer and develop stronger emotional bonds by doing something together that makes lasting memories.
You can’t quantify time spent together with a dollar amount. That’s what makes gifts of experience so wonderful. To have the best holiday season ever, here are a few of our favorite experience-based gifts for the people on your holiday gift list:
- Hot Air Balloon Ride
This one is great for the family. Instead of the newest video game, surprise everyone this year with tickets for a sunrise hot air balloon ride. Picture everyone up in the air over a beautiful morning with hot cocoa and coffee. It’s a great experience that is sure to be reflected on fondly for years to come.
- Ongoing Education
Why not sign up as a couple or family to all learn something new? A few of our favorites include cooking classes, making pottery, horseback riding lessons, dance classes... get creative and push the boundary on new activities that spark new experiences. It’s ideas like these that make great presents with lasting memories.
- Gift of Wellness
At Elements Massage East Mesa, we have an exclusive monthly membership program that delivers the ultimate experience, continual wellness. This year, give the gift of peace to a lucky individual (or even yourself). Our memberships can even be shared with someone you love.
Whether you try one of the above ideas or venture out on your own, stop by our studio today and share with us what your favorite experience-based present has been to date!
