More adventure, less stuff: giving the gift of experiences and fun

I’m a huge fan of experiences, adventures, and making memories. If I were to win the lottery the first thing I would be planning (after paying off any debt, of course) would be an amazing family trip. When my husband and I got married, we had a honeymoon registry (back when no one had really heard of a honeymoon registry) and it was one of the best decisions we made. And our guests loved being able to choose a gift like “dinner in Rome” or “a bottle of wine in Florence” or “museum entry in Paris.” Gifting stories over stuff is the way to go in my book. So when I learned about Tinggly, I knew I had to share it.

Tinggly is an experience gift box where one price lets your loved one choose from an entire collection of experiences, available in more than 100 countries around the world. The recipient has 5 years to book their dream experience, which gives them time to plan their adventure and make it work with their schedule and life. The Tinggly Experience Gift has a variety of collections to choose from, like “Bucket-List”, “Perfect for Her,” or “Time Together,” which have adventures to choose from in different categories like adrenalin experiences, gourmet experiences, pampering experiences, or cultural experiences. The possibilities are endless!

How it works: you place an order online and choose from emailing the gift, printing it yourself, or having the gift box sent to your loved one within 2-3 days. The recipient then gets to choose from over hundreds of possible experiences and plan their adventure on their own time, since they have up to 5 years to redeem their gift. They can go island hopping in Thailand, whale-watching in Iceland, or do a Game of Thrones tour in Croatia

I think this is such a great gift idea for the newly-married, for graduates (there’s even a gap-year collection!), or for the person in your life that loves adventure or needs a little time away (like the mom of three boys who works from home and could desperately use a getaway — hint, hint; wink, wink.)

Do you like experience gifts over stuff? What adventure would you choose?
