Make Memories Not Waste


| 11/21/2018 11:24:00 AM


Studies show that experiences bring more happiness to people than stuff. Anticipating an experience—a trip, an upcoming concert, dinner with friends—makes us happy before the actual event. In other words, we benefit from the experience before we actually experience the experience. Afterward, we have fond memories. And even if the experience goes badly, we still have a good story to tell, which also brings happiness when we regale people with it later: “Remember the time I caught poison oak on our camping trip because I made out in the bushes with that Richard guy?”

With the holidays—and holiday shopping—kicking off, here’s a list of experiences that some of your loved ones may appreciate. No wrapping required.
