Affordable Non-Material Holiday Gifts

A display of spa items including candles, towels, and other treatment products

Win gift-giving this holiday season with this list of seven things you can give someone that aren't material items.

National Park Pass 

An annual America the Beautiful National Park Pass is the perfect gift for anyone who loves travel and the great outdoors. Good at more than 2,000 federal recreation sites, the pass is a steal at $80. The National Park Service offers reduced rates for seniors, military/gold star families, youth, persons with disabilities, and volunteers, so make sure you check out their ticket options before purchasing.

Spa Experience 

Everyone loves an excuse to relax, so gifting someone a massage, facial, manicure, or pedicure is always a great option. While you can easily splurge on a luxury experience, many spa services are affordable.

Indoor Climbing

For the adventurous person in your life, a pass to an indoor climbing gym is a great gift. These gyms are popping up all over the place and provide climbers with an experience in a safe, controlled environment.

Wine Tasting

Got an oenophile in your life? Head to the local winery and get them a gift card for a wine tasting! They’ll enjoy learning about and tasting the wines, you’re supporting a local business, and you’ll get a 10/10 for this gift.

Cook Dinner

Show off your inner chef by cooking a gourmet meal at home. For your partner or best friend, this is a great way to show them how much you care. Plan the perfect meal, set the table, light some candles, put on some music, and don’t forget dessert!

Photo Album

This is a great option for parents and grandparents. You can buy a traditional photo album and DIY, or you can utilize any one of the many online companies to select photos and have them printed in a nicely bound book. A way to preserve special memories, this gift is likely to bring a tear (or two!) to the giftee’s eye!

Show at Local Theatre

It’s easy to forget that talent exists outside of NYC or Hollywood, but it does! There are local theatres producing fantastic, high quality shows that feature the most talented members of your community. Tickets to a show will be a hit with your arts-loving friends.
