The purpose of gift-giving is about giving something you know those in your life would enjoy. If we have learned anything these past few years going through the pandemic is how much we value time, connections and being together with our loved ones.
Providing the important people in your life an experience that creates a memory, you can’t put a price tag on that.
The Experience of Laughter is The Best Gift
There is a lot of research that shows that laughter is something we all benefit from and it doesn’t cost a dime. Getting friends and family together gets those feel-good endorphins flowing and inevitably laughter ensues.
At the holidays, there are a ton of ways to inexpensively get a group together: by hosting a potluck dinner, going for a hike/walk or sledding/ice skating, driving around looking at holiday lights, baking cookies, or playing cards or board games.
Experience Gifts Come In All Shapes and Sizes
Aside from gathering at the holidays, you can also give the gift of “experience”. Gifting an experience doesn’t need to break your budget. There are plenty of options out there with a variety of price points. From virtual workshops and classes to nature adventures and day trips.
Food tours, museum subscriptions, and in-person and online classes are all great experience gifts for people who are hard to shop for and all of them offer adventurous moments, unique explorations, or an opportunity to learn something new.
