Holidays, birthdays, life events, these are all gift giving opportunities and the usual socks and ties just don’t feel as personal as gifts ought to be.
We are bombarded with advertisements of the perfect gift for him and it just feels routine.
The day after the big event, these gifts are often forgotten. Even if you put extra effort into something more thoughtful, material things are eventually forgotten. There’s nothing wrong with your special other. It’s just human nature because “things” eventually become less interesting or we get distracted.
If your special other had all the money in the world and gave you a new gift every day, those gifts wouldn’t be fully appreciated either. The fact is, the human brain gets used to new stimulation and eventually we no longer get excited by gifts. That’s why we feel the pressure to give a gift that will stand out from the usual options.
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “it's better to give than to receive”. This is because human’s are relational and we find joy in someone else’s happiness. Their smile, laugh and gratefulness makes your day and brings you closer.
Why Experiences Make the Best Gifts
You can compare “things” to junk food, they provide a temporary bit of fun but in the long term, they will leave you feeling empty and wanting more.
What truly lasts are experiences! Think back to those weekend hikes, impromptu drives to the beach, or a last-minute camping trips. Imagine giving him an experience that he’ll look back on regularly and bring you both closer? This is the kind of gift that, like healthy foods, will provide long lasting benefits.
Joy, relaxation, and laughter are just some of the benefits he will receive from a gifted experience!
Gift Experience Ideas
You know your significant other best and what he likes. Use that to guide you as you look for gift experiences. Maybe he likes to be outdoors? Search for Kayaking, stand up paddleboard yoga, fishing trips, survival courses or even an ATV trail ride. Does he prefer to work with his hands? Try glass blowing, leather crafting, blacksmithing or wood working activities. If he’s artistic you can look for metal art working, glass fusing, or pottery. The list of possibilities is endless!
