The Gift of Experiences
When it comes to gift-giving, we often default to consumer items – a new purse, a fancy watch, a car, or the latest tech gadget. But what if we shifted our focus to the gift of experiences instead? Here are three ideas for luxury experiences.
Consider the thrill of an African photo safari, where you can witness the majesty of wild elephants and lions in their natural habitat. The memories created on such a trip will last a lifetime, and will be much more valuable than any material possession.
Or imagine the rush of flying a Mig fighter jet, feeling the G-forces press against your body as you soar through the skies. The sense of accomplishment and empowerment gained from such an experience is something that can never be replicated by a consumer item.
And for the person in your life who has a high IQ and already has the watches and cars, consider the challenge and satisfaction of hitting a 1-mile target with a rifle. The focus and precision required to accomplish such a feat makes for an unforgettable experience. Sharing an experience like this with a work associate, spouse or parent can be a life-changing event.
Experiences provide us with memories, skills and a sense of accomplishment that consumer items simply cannot match. So next time you’re looking for the perfect gift, consider giving the gift of experiences instead.
