Reasons to Gift an Experience

Whether it’s for the holidays, anniversaries, events, or birthdays, there are many options out there for gifts! After a few years of gift giving, it can be hard to know what to get for those in your life, or it can be hard to pick a gift you know will stand out when it comes to anniversaries, life events, or weddings. 

A surefire way to give a great gift is to gift a stay at a bed and breakfast! The experience of staying at a bed and breakfast and being able to experience the area is a gift that will last in their memories and hearts for years to come.

Below are a few reasons to gift an experience! 

Create Memories

Giving someone a gift that will result in lifelong memories is far better than a generic gift from a big box store. Especially when it comes in the form of a retreat to a wonderful Bed and Breakfast. Bed and Breakfasts are notorious for being cozy, inviting, and in great locations. 

As an added bonus: the owners will likely know a lot about the area and can give tips and tricks on where to visit or what to see!

Guilt-Free Trip

Many people express guilt at wanting to treat themselves to a nice stay. Traveling is a luxury for many people, no matter how far. Giving them the gift of luxury is a great way to ensure that your recipient has a chance to relax and unwind, and it will help them combat any burnout they may be experiencing! 

When it comes down to it, there are several ways to go about giving this gift. You know your recipient best, but to ensure no scheduling errors, it’s best practice not to reserve a specific time. 

A great way to still give the gift of travel, while being aware and considerate of people’s schedules is to get a gift card or voucher! Often you can call the bed and breakfast and work out the details with them. This way, you don’t give the recipient a hard deadline but a much more easy-going and thoughtful: “I’ve booked you a few nights at this Bed and Breakfast. It’s already paid for, you just call them and tell them the days!”
