We’ve all been there. A moment is approaching upon us where we want to celebrate someone special in our lives with a gift, but we don’t know what it should be.

I recently saw a quote from Maya Angelou that really struck a chord with me, saying, “At the end of the day people won’t remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.”

It got me thinking about when I’ve felt most connected to the people I love in my life, and it’s when we’ve shared a beautiful experience that was meaningful together. These cherished moments are the ones that are so deeply ingrained in our memories.

That being said, maybe it’s time to reframe the business of gift-giving. Physical gifts are lovely, but creating memories lasts forever.

Giving an experience-based gift offers so much value, from shared time and memories, to learning new skills, to just taking a moment to appreciate life and rest…

These are my top recommendations for experiences that you can give to someone special or share together.
