Gift Experiences Not Stuff

The holidays mean many different things to people, but for me they are all about sharing time connecting with folks I love. Giving stuff has never really been my thing, so I’m always on the lookout for ways to gift experiences. I think Dr. Gabor Maté’s quote sums it up best: 


“It is belonging that we all crave. Not belongings.”


Here are a few fun ways to gift experiences that create belonging.


  1. Make a glass ornament together here or here.

  2. Give a year long State Park Pass.

  3. Collage and connect.

  4. Organize a scavenger hunt.

  5. Grow food together.

  6. Create a fused glass ornament

  7. Give an astrology reading

  8. Learn how to forage together.

  9. Organize a family photo shoot.

  10. Give an online art course.


Looking for even more ideas? This article has a lot of good ones. I hope you find some great ways to connect with the folks you love this holiday season.
