After being stuck in quarantine for months, and many places and businesses closed, one thing pretty much everyone in the world has missed out on is experiences, memories, and adventure. An experience is always a top gift for any occasion and any year, but after 2020 everyone has experienced some stir crazy. Below are some ideas for gifting an experience
Adventure/ Memory Book
A great way to encourage exciting activities year-round and capture the memory is a book. You can create your own blank scrapbook with a brain dump of ideas for things to do or buy a pre-made one. You can find fun and creative ideas on Pinterest if you run out of your own to add. The picture above is from the Adventure Challenge company. Their books have scratch-off ideas for couples, families, or friends with general guidelines, and it’s up to you to find an activity that matches, then add a picture and write about it.
Talk about an adrenaline rush! Skydiving is an incredible experience to gift someone, and some places even offer a video to take home. There are so many astonishing landscapes you can see from up above, like beaches, lakes, and mountains.
Hot Air Ballooning
A more tame way to experience scenes from the sky is by riding a hot air balloon. This can also be done with a bigger group and less expensive than sky diving!
Many older areas have a ghost tour or haunted places tour that you a guide leads you through and explains the dark history. Or, you can research and create your own haunted road trip with several destinations to tour through yourself. This is perfect for those who love the morbid and spooky!
Another experience you can buy someone is a class! There are so many options to choose from like cooking, dancing, crafting, painting, woodworking and more. Classes are a great way to support a local business and learn a new skill.
