As you try think of gift ideas for your loved ones, try to think outside of the box. After all, physical products such as ties, small appliances, toys, store gift cards, etc. might only be used for a while and then later discarded or replaced. What other options are there? Well, think about it. What do you remember most when it comes to special memories with your loved ones — things or experiences. Most would say that shared experiences can stay with you for a lifetime. Why not give more of those then?
Have you check out the deals on LivingSocial lately? Gifting experiences is their specialty and they’re staff is quite good at it. One of the first times I used LivingSocial was way back in 2011 when my family and I booked a hotel in Truckee (North Lake Tahoe) here in California. The place was clean and pet-friendly so our whole family of four could enjoy a nice getaway. Ah, that was such a relaxing vacation!
LivingSocial Experiences — Local Gift Ideas
LivingSocial continues to offer unique experiences that are so good you’ll want to get an extra voucher for yourself. That’s a big deal! There are some sites that offer off-the-wall promotions that would definitely put you on a gift-giver blacklist. That is so not the case with LivingSocial. I was browsing the “Local” deals and kept opening new browser tabs because there were so many choices that sounded awesome!
You can choose from 3-massages, spa services, house cleaning, safety seminars (Frans and I need to renew our First Aid and CPR certification), food tours, photography shoots, paddle boarding lessons and more. Know someone who’d enjoy a 6-Hour Smoking and Grilling BBQ Class? I’m sure you do and he/she would love you forever if you got that for them. Have you been waiting for the right time to teach your teen to drive? There’s an offer for a Teen Online Drivers Education Course with DMV Certificate of Completion. If you go with the Wine Tasting Limo Tour for 8, you can benefit from the gift as well. Win-win!
LivingSocial Experiences — Travel Gift Ideas
What if you want to give someone a trip they’ll never forget? The “Escape” section will show several featured hotels deals in your area while scrolling down will display lodging choices and adventures in family-friendly destinations around the world. You can also search for luxury hotels and deals that include airfare. Choosing your destination and travel dates is super easy. Then, narrow search results by price, location, property type, and categories to find the perfect fit for any upcoming travel needs. I’m sure the recipient of an all-expense trip to the Caribbean, China, Bali, or Italy won’t complain even the slightest regarding your gift choice. In fact, they’ll probably sing your praises for years to come!
For those who play an extra special part in your life, you want to give them something to express your deepest appreciation and love. The selection at LivingSocial will help you do that and, thanks to the discounts, you can stretch your present-buying budget that much more. Most deals will show a gift icon on the purchase page and you can then choose to give your present immediately or to schedule it for a future date. That means you can give the perfect gift all year round and on every occasion with LivingSocial experiences!
