In our materialistic world we all have too much stuff; very few of us need another sweater, another pair of socks or another electronic device. I say that because they are not memorable, do you remember the year you got that CD player and CDs for Christmas? Or the garage sale that you sold it at? And as for gift cards they come and they go; do you remember who gave you a certain gift card and when they gave it to you?
But I bet you do remember when you gifted a hot air balloon experience and shared it with someone? What about the year you adopted the kitten from the shelter? Or do you remember the gift you received of Cirque du Soleil tickets that you shared with the giver? And if you've ever received the gift of the NASCAR experience I know you'll remember it!
