It’s hard to shop for gifts for others, because unless they point blank tell us what they want, we are sort of guessing, and hoping we get it right. We can give a gift card, because they are useful and allow everyone to get what they want, but they are definitely impersonal, a little boring, and I don’t think most wives want to be handed a gift card from their husband (not very romantic or thoughtful).
So what do you get someone who means something to you? How about the gift of excitement? Excitations is the gift of experience, a concept in gifting that has been wildly popular in Europe for many years, and is now becoming popular in the U.S. Excitations was the first company to offer them here in the U.S. in 2005, providing an opportunity to give a very unique, meaningful gift that is extraordinarily memorable. It’s not something you wear or use, it’s something you do.
Give The Gift Of An Experience
Know someone who would love to drive a NASCAR car, or ride a hang glider, or learn how to make sushi? Maybe they didn’t know the opportunity to learn or experience their dreams was so readily available and possible, and that these adventures are often closeby…maybe they are even a little nervous about it, but regret every year that passes that they don’t just go for it.
Excitations offers over 2,000 experiences to choose from that are so varied, and changed based on region, so there is definitely something for everyone. I’m in New York, and everything from cooking classes and golf lessons with a pro to the chance to fly a real military aircraft is available. I can spoil my husband with an old-fashioned hot lather shave, have my children enjoy a real life penguin encounter (penguins are the coolest animals in the world to little kids), or send my parents on a romantic hot air balloon ride….so many possibilities!
Doing makes people happier than having. Bringing a child to an amusement park for the day beats buying the child a new action figure in terms of excitement level and contentment. We can’t look back on a life filled with things with any fondness if we never actually did anything worth remembering. This last summer, my husband drove a ferrari for the first time ever, I swam with sharks, and my sons touched sea turtles. It was the summer of a lifetime, one we’ll never forget, and as a result, I can’t think of a more phenomenal gift to get someone else.
Let Them Choose Their Once In A Lifetime Experience
So you thought she wanted to enjoy a picnic in a vineyard, but it turns out she always wanted to go hang gliding. Guess what? Excitations will let her switch! They are dedicated to providing a wonderful experience and want their guests to be happy. You can purchase an individual experience, a Circle Choice package which provides the recipient with several choices at the same price point, or an Excitations Gift Card, and the recipient can choose their own dates, at their own convenience, to enjoy their once in a lifetime experience.
Use promo code PenelopeFreeShip until 12/21 for free UPS ground shipping and handling and your recipient can receive their Excitations gift in an attractive gift box by Christmas, or choose a printable certificate via email to be delivered on the same day as the order.
Have an exciting holiday!
