Do you find yourself in the eleventh hour searching for a last minute online gift? You know the “thing” won’t arrive in time, so you start searching for an experience gift … sound familiar? And then, inevitably, you love the perfect activity gift you find way more than the perfect thing you’d never have found, right? That’s because an experience can be etched into our personal history, creating lasting memories that withstand the test of time (unlike their tangible counterparts!).
As many people enter their minimalist era, material items only add clutter. Experience gifts not only have an emotional impact and prioritize the well-being of the person, but they give people anticipatory excitement and result in a sense of fulfillment.
Spa days, concert tickets, and cooking classes are all fine and dandy last minute digital gifts. But an experience gift for the adventure-seeker in your life ought to be extra level … like a skydiving gift certificate! If your criteria includes birthday, graduation, or Christmas gifts same day delivery, we’ve got you. Let’s get into it.
Skydiving: The Pinnacle of NYC Experience Gifts
Need some convincing about skydiving in New York? You got it.
Diving headfirst into the holiday season, kicking off the New Year, or celebrating a birthday with a skydive is the ultimate adrenaline rush. Plus, there are a number of health benefits that accompany the adrenaline, dopamine, serotonin, and all the happy endorphins coursing through your body during a skydive. It results in a magical concoction that will send you straight to cloud nine!
New year, new you, right? We’re talking about January first AND that personal new year that kicks off on birthdays! A skydiving gift card is just the gateway our friends and family need to push past their boundaries and celebrate being alive!
Sure, it’s fun to prance around with a new watch or designer jeans, to decorate your home with new this and that, or watch other people do things on your brand new flat screen … but is any of that truly living? Being present in the moment is all we really have – live it up!
Long Island Skydiving Center: Your Trusted Partner
Above all else: safety. It’s a sentiment we live by at Long Island Skydiving Center. We love to share the out-of-this-world experience that is human flight … and the only way we can do that day in and day out is to be relentless about safety.
Our aircraft – the Cessna 208 Grand Caravan – is a BEAST in the skydiving industry. This turbine aircraft carries 15 to 21 skydivers, gets to exit altitude in about 10 minutes, and is the epitome of “better, faster, stronger” in the world of jump planes. We keep her in pristine condition with diligent and thorough maintenance.
Top quality gear and its meticulous upkeep is paramount to success. Rigorous inspections and extreme attention to detail ensures our state-of-the-art equipment holds true to being the best of the best.
Our entire staff prioritizes safety as #1. Our ground crew, pilots, and instructors are passionate about the sport of skydiving, and that shines through from the moment you step foot on the dropzone.
We are located less than two hours from the Big Apple! This means you can be skydiving with us in the morning and indulging in a New York City dinner in the evening – perfect for an anniversary. *wink wink*
