Giving the gift of experience
Holiday gifting can be a stressful experience. There is much pressure to find your loved ones a thoughtful gift. We all know what it feels like to be given something generic. It makes you question your worth to that individual and you may even get upset if you searched long and hard and DID find them something that was perfectly suited. (We both know it's a little callous to have these feelings, but we are only human. Humans get their feelings hurt over silly things.)
I was talking to a client the other day and she said that she was giving gifts of "experience" this year. I think it's a great solution to the problem.
Spa certificate, a massage, dance, fitness or yoga class, one-on-one personal training, a round of golf (or putt-putt), a membership to a museum, season tickets to sporting or performance events, a cooking class, a sushi making class, an acupuncture session, a hot lather shave, wine tasting, bowling, personal shopper or stylist session, home organizing session...the list is endless!
I found this great site that you can search experiences by region. http://www.excitations.com/
Want in on the best gift of all?!!
How about the gift of health? Sign someone up for a Nutrition and Health History consultation (for FREE!!!) with Motivated Nutrition, or a one-on-one Pilates or TRX training session. Come on! I HAD to plug it, but it's seriously and AWESOME gift!
Shoot me an email today for a perfect gift certificate for your friends and family!
