TOP REASONS TO GIFT A SKYDIVE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
Last-minute shopping for presents? Stumped? Some people are harder to shop for than others, but did you know that these days many younger people value experiences over things?
Some people in your life will drop hints or have specific answers when you ask, “What do you want for Christmas (or another holiday!) this year?” Others leave you stumped year after year with an, “I don’t know, anything is fine! Don’t worry about it!” But you worry about it.
If you’re ready to be this year’s best gift-giver and turn, “You shouldn’t have.” into, “Holy crap this is awesome!”, read on. I’m talking about skydiving gift certificates.
1. BUCKET LIST
Most everyone has a bucket list, and most items on that list are achievable. All it takes is a little push, incentive, or even just permission. You know they want to do this because they put it on a list, now you can enable them to make it happen!
Have you ever spoken to someone right after their first skydive? They are overflowing with joy and amazement at this new experience they have just had, and their ecstasy is infectious. Some new jumpers’ faces even glow. Serious!
3. EXPERIENCES, NOT THINGS
How many presents have you received that you haven’t seen or used in a while? It doesn’t really matter how much it’s appreciated, a physical gift’s use has a shelf-life. Compare that to an experience like nothing else (seriously, there’s NO EXPERIENCE EVEN CLOSE TO SKYDIVING IN THE WORLD), and it’s clear. What you get from experiencing a gift is a memory. A memory like nothing else is going to stick. Presenting someone with the opportunity to skydive using a gift card is guaranteed to stick out and stick around.
Skydiving is an incredible, uplifting experience. That moment of leaving solid footing inevitably invites stress-relief. When you go out of the door, your problems go out the window! It’s pretty hard to think about student loans, finals, or cell phone bills while in the adrenaline-packed-yet-oddly-peaceful state of freefall.
5. IT WAS YOU
Give someone this experience and the recipient is guaranteed to NEVER forget it, or WHO gave it to them. Talk about an easy way to get mad props on social media, and forever be remembered as the cool person who thought, “Hey, my friend/brother/sister/mom/dad/uncle/aunt/grandma/grandpa/wife/husband/fiance/fiancee/etc. is a pretty cool person. I’ll bet they’re cool enough to go skydiving!”Best way to keep yourself on the Nice list for all time.
Now that you’ve read the list, are you ready to go for it? Don’t forget that Silicon Valley Skydiving is running a gift certificate promotion for $50 off of a $100 gift card. Rad, right?
