Gifts that spread Joy and Happiness

Written on Friday, December 2nd, 2011 at 5:54 pm by Christiane

Most of us don’t really¬†need another sweater or new electronic gadget.¬† This even applies to gift cards. According to estimates, on average, American households have about $300 worth of unredeemed cards. So, what to give?

Research shows that money can buy happiness when we spend the money on experiences such as a vacation or  a fun night out with friends.

How about giving such “experiences” as holiday gift? Here are a few examples:

  • Dinner at a fancy restaurant
  • Movie night
  • Weekend trip
  • Spa visit
  • Girls night out
  • Theatre, museum or concert tickets
  • Hot air balloon ride
  • Scuba diving trip
  • Ski lift tickets
  • Workshop (Job related or Self-Improvement)
  • Coaching sessions
  • Membership in a Club
  • Self-Help books ( such as my book about Job Satisfaction)
