2020 has been such a wild combination of growth and standing still. Many of us discovered a newfound appreciation for travel and vowed to never take adventure for granted again. Even just planning to get away – whether it is a change of scenery, to relax, or take in new cultures – can provide so much joy and anticipation leading up to departure day. Which is why travel makes the perfect gift for the 2020 holiday season.
While some aspects of travel may look a little different, the heart of it all is very much the same. And spending money on experiences still has a stronger and longer lasting impact on overall happiness than material possessions. You’re creating memories to last a lifetime (similar to the ones we kept posting on #throwbackthursday while crying into our afternoon wine). Plus, taking a break to escape and experience something new can do wonders for mental health.
Even just the anticipation leading up to packing and heading to a new destination provides joy. A planned trip for 2021 is something fun and exciting to look forward to while we take on whatever else 2020 has in store for us.
And yes, you CAN travel right now! Our clients and our team have been safely and traveling both domestically and internationally. UTD’s consultants can help you navigate everchanging restrictions and new procedures. We encourage you to talk to us and ask us any questions you may have.
As always, travel can be customized to you and your loved one(s). Are you looking to gift the perfect spa weekend? A romantic beach getaway? An itinerary packed with adventure? Maybe you just want to get the whole family somewhere fun to celebrate being together after a rough year of distancing. Whatever you have in mind, we are here to make planning your getaway gift seamless.
Do you plan on giving the gift of travel this holiday season?
