Spend Money on Unusual Gifts and Experiences This Year

Spend Money on Unusual Gifts and Experiences This Year

According to Dr. Thomas Gilovich, a psychology professor at Cornell, science has proven that experiences bring far more happiness than traditional gifts. So instead of buying a material gift, break the mold this holiday season and give experiences to your friends and family. CreditBox has some great experiential gifts that your love ones will not forget.

The Gift of Knowledge

Learning a skill is a gift that will keep on giving. Simply give your friend a gift certificate and sign then up for that class they have been meaning to take. Cooking, yoga, or art classes are normally easy to find and not overly expensive. If you are not sure where to look, check local universities or Craigslist for teachers that focus on specific skills. 

Sign Up for a Yearly Subscription

As the price of cable continues to increase, more and more people are switching to online streaming. If your friend is a movie fanatic, a great option is a yearly membership for Netflix, HBO NOW, or HULU. If your loved one is a music aficionado, Apple music and Spotify will do the trick. Signing up for these services is fast and affordable so why not give your friends a gift they will enjoy all year.

At Your Service

If your recipient is always busy and doesn’t have much time to spend with you, the best thing to do is give them time. Offer to cook them dinner, clean their apartment or walk their dog. If you are a busy person as well, purchase three months of professional services. The recipient will love having more ‘me’ time.

Join A Snack Club

If your recipient is a snack lover, a bi-monthly snack subscription box is the perfect gift. For the health conscious snacker, Graze is a great option. Graze offers unique flavor combinations that are organic and low fat. At just 14.95 a month for 8 snacks Graze is a gift that makes the holidays last all year.

A Bucket List Item

No matter who the recipient is, chances are they have a bucket list. Buy the recipient a gift certificate to get something on their bucket list checked off. Whether it’s skydiving, waterskiing, or base jumping, this experience is sure to be one to remember.  If the price tag is too much a great option is to buy the experience with a group of friends.

Give a Cloud 9 Adventure

If you are still having trouble deciding which experience you want to gift, then Cloud 9 Living can help! Cloud 9 allows you to shop up to 2,000 different experiences nationwide. Simply purchase a gift certificate and let the recipient chose their own adventure.  Cloud 9 also offers the lower prices when compared to other websites. Who doesn’t like to save money?

 

If you need a little extra cash this holiday season, CreditBox offers loan options that will fit your lifestyle. Apply online and have the extra cash you need in your pocket as soon as the next business day.
