The holiday season is the time of year to focus on what’s truly important to you; spending time with family and friends and being thankful for everything you have. But often times during the holidays we’re bombarded–especially Black Friday–with messages to buy this and buy that. And the pressure to give and receive only adds to the materialism. It’s easy to lose focus of what really matters.
To stand up to the materialism that tries to overtake us during the holiday season, choose to give your loved ones an experience rather than meaningless stuff.
Research has shown that experiences make people happier than things. “The reason experiences lead to more happiness is because they usually have a social component,” says Joseph Goodman, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis who studies happiness and gift-giving.
We have the perfect experience at PlayYourCourt to give this holiday season: tennis. We make it super easy to give the gift of tennis by purchasing tennis lesson gift cards. You can purchase any dollar amount, which gives the receiver the flexibility and convenience to choose their perfect tennis professional, location, and time.
Are you thinking, “who in my family would enjoy a tennis lesson gift card?” Here are some people who would love the gift of tennis.
Newbies to Tennis
Do you know someone who has been dying to find a new activity? Perhaps they’ve expressed an interest in learning tennis? Or maybe you want to get your child or grandchild into tennis? Our tennis lesson gift cards are the perfect way to get someone started playing one of the only games you can play throughout your entire life.
Seasoned Tennis Players
Do you have a friend or family member who loves tennis and already plays? Every tennis player can always use a little help on their strokes and match play. Buy them a tennis lesson gift card so they can get some exercise and polish their game.
The Person Who Already Has Everything
What do you give someone who already has everything? Don’t give them more stuff that will sit in their house and collect dust. Gift them an experience that keeps on giving long after they open their gift.
Experience gifts are especially beneficial for couples or partners because both parties can enjoy the experience, no matter who gives the gift. Find a tennis coach in your area and buy a tennis lesson package for the two of you. It will give you a great excuse to get up and out of the house to do something together as a couple long after the holidays have passed.
Someone Looking to Get Fit
Soon after the holidays we’ll all get blasted with advertisements to lose weight and get into shape. Tennis is the perfect activity to accomplish both. For that special someone who hates the gym but wants to stay fit, buy them a tennis lesson gift card to start the new year.
