Experience Gifting on Valentine's Day

HolidayIndigo ApparelComment

What is experience gifting? 

- It's giving someone an experience as opposed to a material item. It's a fun activity for both parties such as Valentine's inspired paint class, or seeing a movie of a genre you both enjoy! The reason experience gifting triumphs all other styles is because it leaves a lasting impression and creates such wonderful memories. Whether on a first date or the 10th experience gifting is great for partners at all stages. You can do something as small as taking someone to their favorite movie or something more extravagant like taking someone on a one night cruise ship party for the evening.

Experience gifting is the best way ensure zero waste as well, its a win win! This Valentine's treat someone you love to a dinner. Instead of going out, try something creative and go to a cooking class, then try recreating the same dish at home together! This will create a fun, creative, and memorable day for you both. With great movies coming out like Black Panther, buy tickets for you and yours to enjoy a show or even a concert. Instead of guessing a gift, take that person in your life on a shopping spree and pick two or three pieces from the pile they collected. This will also keep the element of surprise, if thats your thing.

 

Yes, Valentine’s Day is more than about spending money on each other, it’s about spending time, but a little gift never hurt nobody. Gifting is a way of expressing just how much you care, its thoughtful and who doesn’t love being spoiled by the person you love!?

  Holiday time sounds like hot cocoa by the fire listening to Mariah Carey “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” For those that are eco-conscious, this time of year is one that is dreadfully wasteful. Look no further, we have simple gifting tips to avoid bags, bows, and paper which can be super wasteful. These steps can be done with tools found around the home. Zero waste and  zero dollars spent sounds fun to me!
