Sometimes I like to change up the gifts that I give to people. Instead of always giving a gift that somebody can “open”, such as a physical present that is wrapped in wrapping paper or placed in a gift bag with tissue paper, I sometimes opt to gift experiences. I am huge into building memories with people and believe that they don’t always buy themselves the opportunity for experiences.
This could mean giving somebody a night away with their loved one in a hotel with a delicious restaurant nearby to get away and relax. Another great idea is to gift something adventurous, such as a zip-lining adventure or a skydiving experience.
Most recently, I gave somebody a gift certificate to get a facial. I have heard amazing things about the facials Orange County has to offer at the day spa CloudMover. This person that I gifted this to doesn’t take a lot of time to spoil herself. Now, she’ll have to sit back and relax while getting pampered.
