What do you get the person who has everything? Or the person who doesn’t want anything? Today even the world’s largest retailers have recognized the shifting landscape of gifting – from material goods to a deep desire for more experiences.
It’s true! Experiences forge bonds that beat the gift of stuff every-time, and great gift experiences create memories that last a lifetime. Adventures are also plastic free and zero waste “products” – so they also help reduce the carbon footprint of traditional gift giving. Just imagine the sheer joy of not having to clean up wrapping paper, boxes, and ribbons all over the place on Christmas morning!
There’s also the FOMO factor. We all have that activity we said we’d try in 2018, but never actually got around to. Not this year! Perhaps gift yourself and a friend a new experience you’ll enjoy together. After all – what’s better than quality time spent doing something engaging? It’s even better if you’re supporting a local business.
So go ahead and get a jump start on your holiday gift shopping BEFORE the season is in full swing. Instead of struggling with the hottest 2018 trends in toys or tech, why not give the gift of local FUN this holiday season instead. We guarantee that some great Charleston local experiences, classes, or adventures will surely make them smile!
