Giving an Experience Gift

Did you know that 3 out of 4 people rather receive an experience gift than anything else?

More people want memorable experiences over the latest iPhone or designer bag
Research shows that sharing an experience with someone can make them happier in the long run over giving them something like a purse or smartphone.
And there is also evidence that experiential gifts make the giver and receiver feel closer and more connected.
“Making memories is much more interesting than more stuff.
Americans spend $16 billion on holiday gifts that end up in the garbage
So this year, embrace the trend. Give your friends and family a Curious Mondo course. Something they will cherish for a very long time.
