Reasons to Gift Experiences This Year

Christmas experience gift

Tired of buying Christmas gifts every year that are often forgotten about, discarded, or lost within a month?

Consider gifting experiences rather than traditional, physical presents this year. Below is a list of some “experience” ideas to inspire your holiday shopping this season. The best part? Eastex Credit Union’s Jingle Bell Holiday Loan can help fund your experience gift-giving this year!

Why Gift Experiences?

Choosing to give experiences instead of material gifts may seem a little overwhelming, especially if you like the idea of heading to the store, selecting an item off the shelf, and wrapping it up neatly. However, continuously opting for purchasing material gifts, especially so many at one time, can lead to a cluttered home and a cluttered mind. Similarly, a child may not be capable of enjoying all physical gifts at once and may lose interest in some gifts during the season.

Have your holiday spending dollars go a bit further with a gift experience. When you purchase an experience, you’re essentially gifting a unique and valuable event. This will create meaningful memories and allow the recipient to look forward to partaking in the event. If you still like the idea of wrapping up a gift, but want to still give an experience, consider finding something relevant and small, like a teaser to the experience. For example, if gifting a Movie Day experience, you could wrap the recipient’s favorite candy with the printed movie tickets. This allows them to look forward to using the gift but gives them something small to unwrap.

Gifting an experience also allows you to shop for those that are hard to buy for. A gift experience is an opportunity to check something off their bucket list, learn a new skill, or simply enjoy a relaxing time. Gifting an experience allows you to give a new hobby inspiration, craft, or skill set that the recipient may not have thought of ever purchasing for themselves.

Ultimately, gifting experiences are unique gifts that allow you to break the routine, create conversation, and reduce clutter. Here are a few gifting experience ideas to kickstart your inspiration!
