Why Gift Experiences Are The Best Gifts EVER
It’s the gift-giving season where your loved one will love getting a gift experience. Gift experiences are presents where you book an experience or activity, so that your loved one can do something entertaining and fun – often something like a lifelong wish of driving a race car.
**Don’t stress over little gifts that are forgotten within a few days; gifting experiences is a simple way to win at the giving game. **
Remember to give one experience to them and one to yourself so you can participate in the fun too. There is no better gift than sharing amazing life experiences. Gift A Panda has created a combination of affordable and amazing gift experiences for everyone in the family to enjoy.
Millennials Live for Experiences - Gift Experiences
The Millennial generation has shifted from having material things to having experiences. The shift is in priorities, where Millenials want to experience life rather than accumulate stuff and be marred down by having to take care of that stuff. Their shift has also created a shift in other generations with may Gen Xers now looking to “Marie Kondo**” their garages and attics and minimize everything they own. **
The less you have to care for and maintain, the more time and money you have to enjoy life. As simplicity grows as a cultural trend, the need to find unique and amazing experiences to enjoy becomes the top priority for many. After all, if you aren’t mowing the lawn of the house you just bought, you need to find something useful with your time. We have a suggestion or two.**
How’s about a hot air balloon ride? Jet skis?
**Take a look at some of these common life goals and how gift experiences can fulfill your loved one’s innermost desires for fun, excitement and adventure. **
Builds Memories for a Lifetime
Selfies are an everyday way of life shared all over social media and through text messages. People who might not otherwise be able to share an experience can see it firsthand – sometimes even via a Facebook live stream. Gift A Panda makes experiences accessible to everyone.
Gone are the days of ripping through the wrapping paper to find a new soccer ball or cell phone holder. People want to go places, see things on amazing trips, and do cool stuff. When they do, it embeds a memory and makes them happier people. Give your loved ones an experience they will remember forever through our memorable and affordable gift experiences.**

Satisfies the Adventurous Spirit Safely
There are those who live an adventurous lifestyle like climbing Mount Everest and the rest of us who want to live life on the edge as long as the risk is cut down considerably. After all, we need to get to work on Monday to finish those reports. This is why an adventure experience is the perfect gift for the guy or gal who wants an amazing experience to write home about but just can’t get away for a six-month outback excursion.
**Buy a gift that gets the adrenaline pumping without maxing out the credit card. In fact, many of the adrenaline gift experiences are so well priced you’ll want to make sure to buy it for two. This way you’ll be able to cross a few things like skydiving off your bucket list too.
The Car Race Track

Improves Life Skills
There is no question that schools just don’t teach us the things they used to and that we should really know. While television and YouTube are great for a quick tutorial, sometimes it’s nice to be in a setting where you can learn new things surrounded by others looking for the same experience. Whether it is learning to cook**, paint, or build things with your hands, class experiences help people learn new life skills and make like-minded friends. **
