I love gifting experiences, especially since they also make for a great last minute, thoughtful gift.
Welcome to my ultimate gift guide - experience edition.
If you want to stand out from other gift givers, you can always choose an experience as a present, which will be lived and remembered for a long time to come.
Create Memories, Not Clutter
Gift Guide - Turn Your Pictures Into Books
If you have thousands of pictures in “the cloud” and need help turning them into something you can enjoy (with more help than Shutterfly gives) a gift card to a personal service is amazing.
Memento Designs or Janice Dweck can give you some really great ideas!
Share your pictures and they will guide you through creating beautiful books.
A Gift Cert to Artkive to send off your kid’s memorabilia and have it returned as a beautiful coffee table book. You can both enjoy it!
Have a Beautiful Make up for the New Year's Eve
A Professional MUA tutorial is definitely an original gift idea. Help your bestie learn how to do her makeup as a pro and shine like a diamond!
Gift Guide - Travel as an Ultimate Experience
Plane Tickets (always fit) or a voucher to their preferred airline is the perfect surprise!
Online Shopping Adventure
A subscription to Return Queen is the optimal present for a friend who is always online shopping. Be aware that they hate returns – especially when labels aren’t included.
Spa Treatment and a Lunch
If you need more ideas, a gift card to a local foot spa or full spa is always welcome! Alternatively, you can choose a gift certificate to their favorite restaurant.
