The halls are decked, the stockings are hung by the chimney with care, and all you have left to do is finish shopping for the perfect gifts. You can go to the mall or shop online, but none of the material things you can buy measure up to the gift of an experience. If you’re looking for fun and creative Charleston gift ideas, you’re in luck—we’ve got the gift that kids, teens, and adults alike will enjoy—Charleston Fun Park gift cards!
3 Reasons Why Experiences Make Better Gifts
- We all have more than enough stuff in our lives. From kids’ rooms packed full of toys and stuffed animals, to adults’ closets overflowing with clothes we don’t wear, to the junk drawer (or maybe even the junk room) where the whole household sticks random odds and ends, the modern American family has too much stuff. The science is in, and it confirms what you may have already sensed—clutter makes us feel worse, instigating feelings of overstimulation, anxiety, and even depression.
- Things eventually lose their luster, while experiences (and the memories they create) last a lifetime. In fact, researchers have confirmed that spending money on experiences, rather than material objects, makes people happier and more fulfilled. It makes sense, because while a new toy or gadget might be temporarily entertaining, it likely won’t create the interpersonal connection of a shared experience.
- An outing or experience is never the wrong size or color. Let’s face it, kids aren’t the only ones whose sizes and preferences change. Why bother snooping in their closet to find out clothing sizes or taking a chance on purchasing the wrong thing when you can give a one-size-fits-all gift that they’ll love?
