A nice quirky coffee mug with a latest photograph planted on it, may be a cool gift, but what if you paid for a class on coffee-making or a quad biking experience for a biker friend? In a world of abundance, gifting an experience would be far more memorable. What say?
The wedding season demands something different this time, you best friend’s birthday gift need to be special. Ditch the boring perfume-watch-designer bag routine-sunglasses; instead present your loved ones with the experience they will cherish for years. Give the traditional concept of gifting, a heart-warming makeover.
In an age where people hardly find time to pamper themselves, what could be better than gifting an experience and letting your loved ones indulge in their passion? My friend in US was being gifted a “Dive with sharks”, well that would freak us out, but yes try something out of the box, not to an extent that the box needs the “fitment”…. 🙂
