Why Experiences Are the Better Gift for The Holidays

The holidays are right around the corner. During this time of the year, it feels like every store has some sort of sale going on. If you’re looking for some deals for holiday gifts, that may sound like great news.

But is more stuff really the right kind of present? Perhaps there’s a better alternative that your loved ones will appreciate.

Gifts don’t have to be things.

These days, there’s no shortage of things you can buy. Some would even argue that there’s too much. People already expect that if they’re going to get a gift, it’s something they can hold.

Why not buck that trend and go for something more special? This holiday season, rather than adding to a pile of stuff that’s just sitting in someone’s closet, consider giving something they can experience. If you want to make someone happy, even Forbes says that’s the real secret.

Experiences are treasured forever.

As a kid, you probably had a favorite toy. You’d play with it every chance you get, but as time went by, you did so less and less. That’s simply part of growing up—you outgrow some of the things in your life.

By now, that favorite toy of yours is likely long gone. But when you look back, you still remember the good times. It’s not really about the toy but all the fun you had.

There’s no chance it’ll end up in a landfill.

You’re not the only one looking to buy stuff on sale. Shoppers all over the country are gearing up to take advantage of the upcoming deals. And as we’ve just talked about, a lot of those things won’t last forever. Many of them will end up in the trash sometime in the future.

As people who enjoy the mountains, we’re more aware of our impact on the environment. Instead of buying things that might just get tossed away one day, perhaps it’s better to look for experiences that we’ll take with us for the rest of our lives.

If you’re looking for a different kind of gift this holiday season, consider sending over one of our kits. With less luggage to worry about, your special someone can save some cash on their vacation flights which they can then put into having a bigger adventure on the slopes. We’ll make sure they have the best gear waiting for them at their destination so they’re ready to enjoy all the fun without any of the hassles.
