Yes, some material gifts can last a lifetime; a handsome piece of jewelry, object of art or a sturdy piece of cookware. They continue to give pleasure and serve their purpose for years and years. They frequently also invoke the memory of receiving the gift, the time and consideration that the giver took for you. In the larger view of life, it is likely the later that is most meaningful, the threads of memory attached to the object.
Take some time to consider if your family member or friend would prefer a material gift or an experience with you or on his/her own. There are so many choices. A simple afternoon walking in the park and coffee works for many ages. Tickets to a show or exhibit make thoughtful gifts. There are lots of choices for classes that your loved one can enjoy, options for young and old; cooking classes, sewing classes, dance classes, etiquette classes (SAA offers certificates and packages) and tours. Platforms like Airbnb now offer experiences in cites around the world. The internet can be a great tool. Try looking at tourism sites for a city. Atlanta has Atlanta PlanIt and the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau has an extensive site. Being a tourist in your own town is a fantastic option.
Taking your time to be with another or giving the gift of a fun time is always a good fit!
