Experiential gifts are the latest trend in giving – and for a very good reason. Focusing on the experience will result in lasting memories, long after the material aspect of the gift has perished. Whether via travel, spa days or fancy dinners, the best gifts are those that create enduring visions. Here are a few experiential gift ideas.
Travel brings about a vast array of experiences and shared moments, creating a feeling of closeness that can’t be found in material gifts. Whether is a local excursion to Niagara Falls or something more exotic, travel allows for connection and valuable experiences. Fly over to California and indulge in an overnight stay at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, an estate with a clash of Mediterranean and Southern California style. This grand paradise includes a private Tom Fazio designed golf course, tennis courts and exuberant nightlife.
2. Indulge in a Spa Day
Whether for yourself or a loved one (or both!), a spa day is a gift of relaxation and self-indulgence. Warm water, scented candles, and luxurious bath salts and bubbles create the perfect atmosphere for an extremely intimate and romantic experience. Alternatively, treat mom, your lover or best friend to a relaxing facial and stress relieving massage.
Theatre brings together class and elegance, with most Theatres in London including a fine-dining experience. Bring along your significant other or group of friends, and give them the experience of an artistic, elegant outing that dates back centuries.
A growing phenomenon, ultra-fine dining offers an enriching experience paired with first-class gourmet meals. Indulge in a local ultra-fine dining experience in Birmingham’s haute cuisine hotspot, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar & Grill Birmingham, with a contemporary menu. Located in the heart of thee city, the upscale restaurant offers outstanding views of the city! The beautifully plated foods paired with the modern, contemporary setting creates elegance and taste, paying homage to Birmingham’s rich environment.
5. The Cherry on Top
A diamond ring or sparkling tennis bracelet says a lot, but not as much as the experience itself of the gift reveal. Set up a date at a luxury-themed restaurant or do something more unique and spend an evening at the opera. Let the excitement of the event cultivate the emotion as you present a lovely gift as the cherry on top, encapsulating the moment. For the sophisticated woman, Mejuri’s unique jewelry speaks simplicity and elegance. Alternatively, a pair of trendy cufflinks from Cartier will hit the spot for a fine gentleman. Experiences are proven to produce more happiness than material items. Make a special occasion the ultimate gift and let the experience speak for itself.
