Tis the season of giving, and we hope you will give the gift of experiences! Have you ever wondered what to buy for that someone who seems to have everything? Or how to give a gift that will be treasured for years to come? At Wilderness Inquiry we strive to connect others to the outdoors and each other, which is why we encourage you to invest in experiences over things this holiday season. If there’s anything recent world events have taught us, it is that connection to each other and the outdoors are more important than ever. This year especially, we encourage you to give the gift of adventure with a Wilderness Inquiry gift certificate – here’s why.
Gifts are temporary, experiences last a lifetime
Toys will collect dust on a shelf, an appliance will outlive its usefulness, and the threads of clothes will eventually run bare. Memories on the other hand are truly timeless. By giving the gift of experiences, you’re investing in memories made instead of trinkets purchased. A price can’t be put on the awe that comes from seeing northern lights for the first time, learning to paddle a canoe, and spending meaningful time with family.
Help support industries & people hit hard by COVID
It’s no surprise that the travel and tourism industries have been hit hard by COVID, and we’re not just talking about airline travel. We’re talking about small, family owned businesses that rely on travelers to stay afloat. When you choose to give the gift of experiences, you’re not only helping the travel industry – you’re helping the people and places they work with: a small cafe in Bayfield, Wisconsin, a family-run campground in Montana, or a guide in Uganda.
When you purchase a Wilderness Inquiry gift certificate, not only are you giving a meaningful experience in nature to a loved one, but you’re also helping us provide scholarships for people with financial need, programs for underserved youth and families, support services for people with disabilities, and more. A Wilderness Inquiry gift certificate purchase is truly a gift that keeps giving.
How to use a Wilderness Inquiry Gift Certificate
A Wilderness Inquiry gift certificate isn’t just for trips! Our gift certificates can be used for single-day events, experiences for school groups, virtual learning, and more. Use your gift certificate to sign up for virtual workshops that help connect socially isolated adults to outdoor education and learning experiences grounded in nature. Or you can use it to book a trip on the Mississippi River or a multi-day adventure with your family. Either way, your purchase continues to give back to the Wilderness Inquiry community.
