If you’re the kind of person who would rather spend a little bit more money on experience gifts than even $5 on a single present, welcome. You’ve come to the right place. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with spoiling your loved ones with tangible treats from time to time, the most sentimental gift you can give someone is time spent together. But since this is 2020 and we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, experience gifts won’t look the same as they have in the past. With no festivals, concerts, or exotic beach vacations with all of your friends, you might be struggling a little to think of ideas for this year. But before you blow it off completely and settle for giving a gift card, consider one of these ideas below first.
To help you out, we’ve rounded up the best gifts for making memories together with your loved ones or cool ideas that the person in your life can experience solo if you guys can’t spend the holidays together this year. If you’re shopping for someone who already has everything and doesn’t need more stuff, get them one of these 20 creative experience gifts instead.
