Gift an Experience, Share the Love

4 Reasons Why Gifting an Experience is Better Than Gifting “Stuff”

[divider align=”center” width=”500px”]

1. Experiences Last Longer

Material gifts break and are forgotten. The latest video game or trending object is not memorable, but taking family trips, hanging out for holidays together, and experiences with friends are the precious moments life is made up of.

2. Experiences Bring You Together and Shared Memories Are Better

Material gifts are more likely to be used alone while experiences are usually with another, such as friends or family.  Researcher Cindy Chan explains – “The reason experiential gifts are more socially connecting is that they tend to be more emotionally evocative,” adding “An experiential gift elicits a strong emotional response when a recipient consumes it—like the fear and awe of a safari adventure, the excitement of a rock concert or the calmness of a spa—and is more intensely emotional than a material possession.”

3. Possessions Get Old – Memories Mature in Value

Spring Cleaning has become a ritual where we purge our home of possessions we’ve collected over the past year because they’re just taking up literal space in our lives. For the highest levels of happiness we routine purge things that no longer bring us joy (you are familiar with Marie Kondo’s work, right?) While possessions get old, collect dust and become clutter – Experiences, and the memories associated with them gain perceptual value over time.

4. Upcoming Experiences Increase Excitement and Anticipation

As we have new experiences with friends or loved ones, we build new neural pathways and connections and we look forward to even more of positive experiences in the future.  That’s why planning annual trips with friends or creating rituals about seeing the latest movie in a series together with your best friend or sibling is so fun.

Gift Floating

Floating is an amazing experience and the Best Gift to Give to That Special Someone this year.  So, imagine that as you give this gift of floating the perplexed look on their face. While they may not know what they have received when they first open your “float gift” for them, imagine their excitement and the awesome conversation you two will have as they call you on their way home (post-float) thanking you for thinking of them and sharing this wonderful experience with them.

Why Gift the Just Float Experience ?

One Size Fits All

Unlike fashion, floating always fits, never goes out of style and truly enriches your friend or family member’s life with the feeling of contentment and joy that floating brings – without any clutter!



Peace During the Holidays and Beyond

Floating as a practice is as powerful as daily meditation.  The calming and restorative effects of floating lasts longer than a massage and truly influences their interaction with every person they interact with that day. Your gift is the introduction and will be the start of that, in their lives.


Floating Offers us the “5-Rs” – So Critical, Especially During the Holidays

Floating offers us (and your loved ones as a gift) permission to fully relax, rest, reset, rebalance, and restore for the new year ahead. With no action on your part, the zero stimuli environment of our float tanks activates your Parasympathetic Nervous System (your “Rest and Digest” system) to allow for unparalleled healing of the mind, body and spirit – all in one effortless hour.

So whether you make the decision to give the gift of floating or you choose another experience, please choose to gift a loved one something this holiday season they will remember (and thank you for) 5 years from now vs. clutter they will someday have to throw away during spring cleaning.
