There is a movement going on right now that I really love. It’s a movement that is stepping away from giving gifts that are materials and instead investing in life experience gifts. This means so much to me because when I think back on my childhood, I remember some of the toys that I had but mostly I remember who played with me. I remember surprise trips to a hotel for the weekend. More than Halloween candy I remember my dad playing an old spooky cassette tape int he car while we drove down a dark dirt road through the woods. Those experiences will be with me for as long as my memory can hold them. Every single possession I own may be gone but those memories, those life experiences will stay with me. That’s why this list of 28 unique life experience gifts you can give instead of buying stuff is so important.
