The results are in, people: Skydiving makes the greatest gift you can give to pretty much anyone in your life! If that seems like a stretch, take our hand and follow us down the path to why that's true. By the time we're done here, you'll totally get it.
1. Viral-video-worthy reactions
Have you ever seen jaws actually drop when a gift is opened? Some dancing around the room? A giftee saying "OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG" repeatedly into the ceiling? That's the vibe you're going to end up with if you give a skydiving gift certificate as a gift -- totally rewatchable reactions. So bring a video camera!
2. Experiences are better than material things.
Material things lose their luster. Happens every time! Experiences, on the other hand, make memories. Memories never get old. They never get taken for granted. They stay fresh forever. Which is the better gift? Obviously.
3. Give a gift that they'll remember, share and talk about for years to come.
Along those lines: A great memory is a shareable commodity. You'll be part of something that your giftee will find excuses to bring up constantly for the rest of forever, as part of their life story.
4. Experiences result in less clutter.
Your giftee will never have to dust a skydive.
5. Help define your giftee's purpose and passion
Got someone in your life who needs a little inspiration? Who's kinda floating at the moment, due to external or internal forces that have them stuck? A skydive might be just the thing to kick their purpose and passion back into gear.
6. One jump could result in creating a new hobby.
The worldwide sport skydiving community is awesome -- and pretty much everyone enters it through the gateway of a first-time tandem skydive. Never underestimate the power of that jump!
7. It's just special.
A skydive is the most special of gifts, as it's thoughtful above any material thing and shows your giftee that moment-making is -- well -- momentous, and considerably more important to your (and them, my extension) than baubles and gizmos.
8. Buying things is something of the past.
Stuff is so yesterday. The world is paring down on plastic and clutter and unnecessary nonsense, and so are you. Right? Totally.
9. Your gift will change someone's life for the better.
A skydive is the kind of earth-shaking confidence builder that can really reshape the trajectory of the person who experiences it. Don't you want to be part of that tectonically powerful change? We figured you might.
10. It's a gift you can share.
With all that said about why a tandem skydiving gift is the best gift you can give, hands-down: How long has it been since you treated yourself to something amazing? Why not get in on the experience and -- heck -- go with them? If you're not excited yet about what a rollocking gift-giving season this is going to be, we're shocked. Now that you have this amazing secret knowledge, you're about to become a gift-giving ninja like no other -- and part of the freefallin' family, to boot!
