What do you give someone who has everything? As we age, we tend to want to de-clutter because we have far more than we actually need.
Research indicates that experiences make us happier than “things” do. Gifts of experience will often make the recipients happier, especially if it is something that is related to an interest or hobby, or something that purely gives pleasure or something that they would not normally be able to afford.
Giving a subscription to a magazine, memberships to museums or botanical gardens, theatre tickets to the local theatre house, a travel voucher or a pamper session is a win-win for the giver. Make sure you know the recipient’s taste in theatre, travel, magazines, exercise and pamper sessions because the right experience gift will rate high on the happiness scale.
With all this in mind, You’ve Earned It turned to five of its advertisers to see what was on offer in the gift line.
