The holidays are fast approaching and it’s time to start thinking about finding the perfect gift for the ones you love the most. While we all appreciate a good sweater, and gift cards are always useful, sometimes it just doesn’t feel like enough. So what do you get the person (or people) who make your life complete? We recommend the unparalleled experience of travel.
Not only is travel an incredibly memorable and personal gift, but it’s also something that will make the recipient happy for a long time to come. Studies have found that more sustained happiness comes from experiences instead of the ownership of things, and the joys of lived experiences like travel are truly long-lasting.
The enjoyment you feel isn’t just limited to the trip itself and the memories from it either; it’s also felt in the time leading up to it. The happiness gained simply out of anticipation of a coming getaway is considerable, like a fun “bonus gift”. From plotting out activities to figuring out what clothing to pack, the excitement leading up to a trip is half the fun!
But most importantly, inserting a little adventure into your life just makes you healthier. The personal, mental, and emotional benefits are unmatched and are a great way to make the lives of the ones you love even better and more complete.
So this year consider designing a romantic excursion to share with your spouse, send your mother off on a solo spa getaway for a relaxing weekend, or book a cruise vacation for the whole family. We’ll take care of the details and you can rest easy knowing you’ve just given the absolutely perfect gift.
