With the holidays right around the corner, you’re probably thinking about what to get for the special people in your life. Maybe the new iPhone? A Fitbit? A cool pair of sneakers?
All of those material items still make great gifts, don’t get me wrong. But if you really want to give them a gift they won’t forget, go for an experience.
Unlike tangible gifts, experiences never really lose their allure. Even once they’re in the past, experiences live on as great memories. Even science says the key to happiness isn’t a collection of the latest gadgets, but the people and relationships we surround ourselves with.

It’s home to thousands of unique events, activities, and tours led by local hosts in cities all around the world. And, it’s super easy to book through the Airbnb site. If you’re looking for a special gift-worthy experience for anyone on your list, Airbnb Experiences is worth checking out.
