First, it is harder and harder to come up with unique gift ideas. There are a myriad of unique experiences to gift. You can make the gift of travel unique. It doesn’t matter if it is near town or out of town; spending time with your family creates memories for a life time.
Second, trading gifts for quality time might just improve your family's health and well-being. The Heritage Foundation found that spending time together and enjoying fun activities promotes stronger emotional bonds between kids and parents. A season family pass to the zoo creates several days of outings. No better way to spend an afternoon.
Third, studies have shown that teenagers who actively spend time with their parents tend to have fewer behavioral problems. Remember those fun times you’ve spent with your teens at concerts and water parks. You not only enjoy the day, you are supporting mental health.
Finally, adults love to receive experiential gifts. It doesn’t matter if it is to a gift card to a restaurant, for a massage, to a class, or for travel. Adults have accumulated so many things over the years, gift cards are the perfect present. Even engaged couples are opting for a gift registry of experiences instead of dishes. Adults like to have memories of times with family, especially those little ones, so gifting experiences is perfect.
It doesn’t matter if you are young or old; you’ll enjoy time together as a family and the memories that come from the shared experiences. Kids grow up so fast. Make memories that last. Find a great vacation, massage, or dining experience for your grad or for dad. Dad’s day is just around the corner; so next time you have to buy a gift for someone, consider the gift of an experience.
