Stumped by gift ideas? Consider giving an experience rather than a “thing” this year. It’s a common conundrum during the holiday shopping season – what to get the person who has everything? Instead of wandering the aisles for more gadgets and gizmos they don’t need, think about an experience they’d enjoy instead. Instead of more stuff, consider giving the gift of fitness, fun, art, or a new skill in the form of a membership or subscription.

Beyond the ease of shopping for and wrapping this type of gift, the special memories it can create are priceless. What if that fitness membership finally helped a parent meet their weight loss goal?  Visits to a local museum may become cherished memories to a grandchild.
