Give the Gift of Shared Experiences This Holiday Season

I see a lot of clients over the holidays that have conflicting feelings about the holidays.

Often times, they find gift giving to be shallow and insignificant. But research tells us that using our money for experiences, rather than things, will bring a lot more meaningfulness and joy into a person’s life.

So, instead of buying a “thing” or a product, focus on experiences. For example, travel. Do something that brings you together with another person.

More often than not people find that more gratifying and that can bring a lot more joy and long-term happiness during the holiday seasons, as opposed to a new pair of socks.

Think about it and enjoy the holiday season!
