Last year, we gave you a great list of clutter-free gifts to give for the holidays… and we have even more this year! People have so many “things” – these gifts focus on the experience and making memories.
The Gift of Adventure
Depending on hobbies, interests and abilities, gifting an adventure could make this holiday the most memorable ever! Here’s some ideas: a rock climbing gym, indoor trampoline park, skiing passes, a hot air balloon ride, a day at a water park (to be redeemed during warmer weather, of course!), a day of mountain climbing… the ideas are endless!
The Gift of the Big Screen
Who doesn’t love to go to the movies? Especially when families are large, the expense can prohibit them from treating themselves to a flick very often, so a movie gift card will give them time together, a night out and pure entertainment!
Tickets, Tickets, Tickets!
Concert tickets, Broadway show tickets, Sporting event tickets or tickets to other local attractions – an experiential gift that they will remember forever.
Lessons and classes and instruction – oh my!
Is there someone on your list who has been meaning to take a pottery class, try zumba or yoga or maybe learn an instrument or a language? Here’s your chance! Give them the kick start they need with a gift certificate to what could be a life changing experience.
For the reader or the one on your list that likes to stay up-to-date with the news, perhaps a digital subscription to a magazine or The New York Times would be a great fit and will keep giving all year.
If You Make It, They Will Use It… or Eat It!
Homemade jams, chutneys, pickles, infused oils, body butter and more, with cute packaging and labeling, shows those on your list that you are thoughtful AND talented!
When all else fails, wine is always the perfect gift and it only takes up counter or rack space for a bit before it’s enjoyed.
