Memories are made of these- Give an experience!

According to the University of Toronto, “The reason experiential gifts are more socially connecting is that they tend to be more emotionally evocative.”

The emotional response gained from receiving an experience gift is more intense than a material gift. This is because we put ourselves in the situation of the experience first-hand.

For hot air ballooning, common emotions include:

  • Excitement
  • Happiness
  •  Joy
  • Grateful
  • shock/ surprise

These are the emotions which connect us to one another. The emotions that we feel during an experience is what we remember in or memories.

‘Floating in the sky during sunrise, without any other noise around.’

‘Standing beside your loved one, in a basket amongst the clouds’.

For more information on the scientific study conducted to show the positive effect on relationships due to experience gift giving, refer to:

We wish everyone a safe & happy Christmas, complete with family & friends to enjoy the end of 2017 and the start of 2018.
