    Give a gift that will create a memory!

    To have and to hold … until it ends up on a table at their garage sale in 10 years…still in the box.

     

    If you were to look in the closets and basement shelves of the relatives and friends you have bought gifts for over the years, we are confident you will find a wedding gift or two gathering dust. Some may even still be in the original box.

    Nowadays people are getting married older and have accumulated most of the items they need for their home.   There is less room for more stuff and almost guaranteed the next wedding you are going to will be registered at The Bay, Sears,  Home Sense or somewhere similar.   Great gifts but why risk your gift being tucked away unused, unremembered?

     

    The latest trend in gifting is to give an experience rather than ‘stuff’.   We all seem to be busier and time is precious. We want to make the most out of our spare time.   Gifiting someone you care about an experience gives them that reason to get out and check something off their bucket list.

     

    As everyone’s bucket list is unique we thought we would give you a few ideas to help you find the perfect experience for your next wedding gift.

     

    Wet and wild. If the newlyweds like to spend time on the water, get them an exciting sea doo adventure.   For a more relaxing water activity, gift maybe sailing or paddle board yoga.

    Feel the need for speed.   Just because they are married doesn’t mean they can’t have fun.   Stunt car driving or drag racing…adrenaline pumping activities they will absolutely love if they like to go fast.

    Fly like an eagle.   A new fondue set will sit on the shelf.   Skydiving from 13,000 feet or learning to fly a small plane over the CN Tower or Parliament building is so much more fun to get as a gift.

    Relax and unwind.   To recover from all the wedding activities and the big day, who wouldn’t cherish receiving a gift of a relaxing spa day!

    Feeling sexy. Keep their embers glowing with a sexy gift like a boudoir photography session or pole dancing classes.

    Dance the night away.   The newlywed couple can learn a new way to grace the dance floor with a gift of dance lessons from Salsa to Ballroom dance lessons.

    Raise your glass. Cheers to many happy years together with a vineyard or brewery tour.

    “I do” and then “I will”.   2 words that open up a world of new exciting experiences. If you can’t decide on a specific activity for the couple then let them choose their favorite way to play with a gift certificate!
