What do you get the person who has everything? Or the person who doesn’t want anything? Today even the world’s largest retailers have recognized the shifting landscape of gifting – from material goods to a deep desire for more experiences.

It’s true! Experiences forge bonds that beat the gift of stuff every-time, and great gift experiences create memories that last a lifetime. Adventures are also plastic free and zero waste “products” – so they also help reduce the carbon footprint of traditional gift giving.

Looking for more gift ideas? Here are some ideas from our CMB contributors!

  • Every mom needs some pampering and what better way to spend a day than at the spa! A gift card to a local day spa, nail salon, or hair salon is the perfect break for mom! 
  • Want to score some big-time brownie points with mom? Book a local cleaning service to give your house a deep clean (maybe while mom is out enjoying some pampering?!) and you’ll have one happy lady! 
  • Hire a local personal chef to prepare a meal or set up a week’s worth of meals using one of the many online meal delivery services.
  • Put a girls night on the calendar and get mom a gift card for a local wine bar. Let her know that the only plans she needs to make is what to wear!
  • Speaking of what to wear…with so many great local boutiques, send mom out for a day of shopping at her favorites(s). 
  • Moms and coffee go together like, well, moms and coffee. Get that tired mama a gift card to her favorite local shop and schedule some time on the calendar for mom to enjoy time at that favorite coffee shop. Alone 🙂
  • Hire a local jeweler to create a custom piece just for mom. 
  • Sometimes a good night sleep is just what the doctor ordered. Book that hard-working mom a night (or weekend!) at one of Charleston’s boutique hotels.
