Best Experience Gifts to Give This Holiday Season

Experience Gifts

As Christmas looms around the corner and we’re counting down our days to the most-awaited season of the year. We can’t help but get ecstatic and overjoyed. It’s going to be the season of love and charity all over again.

Christmas is still the season of giving. But remember that gifts are not limited to physical gifts. There are other alternatives that can be as meaningful and memorable. Give your loved ones the gift of experience instead. Below are some experience gifts you may give any season of the year.

  1. Travel / Vacation

Gifts don’t necessarily need to be in the form of something material and tangible. It could be expressed in many ways, and bringing your partner in life or your family to someplace else is one of those things. It will surely be a memorable experience that couldn’t be matched by the fanciest gadgets and jewelry such as amber jewelry. Going to another place is always about the excitement of exploration and adventure. Be it in a luxurious city such as Singapore, London, Paris, or Milan, or be it a date with nature such as the Grand Canyon and the wonderful islands of the Philippines. Any travel gift is something everybody will love and treasure for the rest of their lives.

  1. Quality time together

Of course, you can opt out of travel if you want to spend Christmas with your family and loved ones at home. Instead, what you can do is set aside a time when you can do something together. It can be some time at the park with your kids, a movie night with your friend, or a dinner you made with your siblings. The key is to do something together and enjoy each other’s company.

  1. Charity

One of the most selfless acts you or your significant other can do this season is to give to the less fortunate. While you might not get back materially the things you gave, the rewarding feeling of being able to help those who are in need is something that will truly captivate the heart of the giver. Give to charity on behalf of the person you’re supposed to give the gift to. A lot of charities have cards that you can give instead which will also let the person know you gave to charity for them.

    I think that experiences are the best gifts ever! Gifts get forgotten but experiences especially things you do together are the most memorable gifts.

    I totally agree with you that spending quality time with friends and family and helping your community should be priorities for EVERYONE this holiday season. I love volunteering with my kids–it sets a great example and we work to make the world a better place.

    I would love to give my kids a vacation for Christmas! The problem is we always do our vacation in the summer, so it seems like a long time to wait for their Christmas.

    People should be charitable all year round. I love family time at the holidays, playing games and watching movies is perfect for us.

    The gift of travel can really be a good one since we learn a lot when we travel. Charity would also be a heartwarming contribution this Christmas.

    I definitely want to spend lots of time as a family this year. Experience gifts are the way to go!

    When my brother’s family and mine get together at the holidays, we spend a day serving at the local homeless shelter and then come home to eat soup, crusty bread, and cookies. We learned a long time ago that serving others together brings us closer than anything we could “gift.” Some of my favorite memories of all time!

    I really need to get more experiences this time of year. I don’t like the cold or the winter at all, but I’m sure there is something I can find to do with the kids to make this time of year more magical for them.

    Giving the gift of travel is always welcomed. Sometimes it comes in the form of trips or places they want to visit while there. We pay for them ahead of time and helps them do and see more while on vacation.

    I would much rather get an experience or adventure with my family over a material gift.

    I love the idea of giving an experience rather than a traditional gift. I was just looking at baseball tickets last night.

    We always adopt a family in our community through our church for the holiday season. We gift them with Thanksgiving and then the whole shebang of Christmas. Our church community is wonderful in helping those in our community and I love it. Great ideas!

    We do give back to our community by helping supply toys for kids in need. Spending time together as a family and helping others is two of my favorite things about Christmas.

    We don’t have the funds or time to travel, but we will be spending time together at least! We also like to give back. We always donate to Toys For Tots.

    I am ALL ABOUT experiences these days. It doesn’t have to be an extravagant gift, but making memories is everything to me.
