By Tampa Bay Parenting

Do you know that experiences are often considered more valuable and more memorable than material possessions?

It’s true! Studies have shown that experiences provide more lasting happiness than having all that “stuff” we tend to give.

Don’t get me wrong; I like a nice handbag or icy piece of jewelry as much as the next gal (I’m only human), but I do think there might be something to this idea of thinking outside of the gift box!

So here are some of my suggestions of stylish “Experience Gifts” for those special people in your life…


For Him- The Kingsman Shave from The Cambridge Club: Many guys wouldn’t think of treating themselves to this luxury experience, which includes a relaxing hot oil facial massage, two-pass straight razor shave, and cooling face mask. I think he deserves it, don’t you?

For Her- Personal Shopping Session with Fashion Expert Michelle Bremer (that’s me!): How many women do you know who hate to shop? Your BFF? Your mom? Your wife? What if you could give her an experience that makes shopping fun? #winning

For the Grandparents- Grand Portrait Session with Theresa NeSmith Photography: Because these precious moments must be captured in the most stylish natural light! And, let’s face it.

For the Kids- Backyard Camping Experience: Do it together! Set up the tent, roast marshmallows on the grill, snuggle up in sleeping bags (the weather is perfect), play games and make memories.


Gift Ideas

For Your Girlfriends- Professional Blow Out: Blow dry bars are popping up all over town and there’s a reason for that. They’re awesomely convenient, particularly for the ladies with long hair. Give the gift of glam and I promise she’ll love it!

For Your Favorite Couple- Private Chef Prepared Meal: This ranks right up there with Private Wine Tasting! How cool would it be to have a personal chef come to your home to prepare a healthy gourmet dinner for two? Okay, maybe you’ll want to gift this one to your husband (wink-wink).
