Sometimes the best gift you can give a friend or loved one is something you can’t buy in stores: your time. Many studies have shown that material possessions do not equal happiness and that experiences are much more intrinsically fulfilling that things.The basic conclusion was that people tend to get less happy with material purchases over time, and happier with experiences.Even negative experiences can often be remembered fondly as a funny story or bonding experience. Shared experiences are a uniting factor. You are more likely to bond with someone who enjoys the same hobby/activity or has traveled to the same places that you have than with someone who has a similar possession.
Why not skip the unnecessary gifts and bring your family, your significant other, or your best friends on the adventure of a lifetime! We have great multi-day trips for families such as the White Rim, the Best of Moab Adventure Tour, and the Bryce and Zion National Parks tour. We also have shorter trips and multi-sport trips for less experienced riders! Let us help you make 2017 a year of amazing memories, meaningful relationships, and once in a lifetime experiences. Read more by visiting this blog about family adventure vacations. Please join us December 17 at Las Vegas Cyclery/Escape Adventures Headquarters for a holiday party! It is a great chance to talk to some of our people about what’s new and exciting for cyclists in 2017 as well as talk to some bike touring specialists about the abundance of amazing adventures out there for your friends and families.
We think that truly living means living with less, this principal really gets tested around the holidays. All of the gifts below were hand-picked by our store managers to appease the eco-conscious cyclist. Many don’t take up space and many have minimal impact on our earth if not a positive effect! Now that’s a gift that keeps on giving!
All of these items are made from recycled and/or upcycled bike parts. These are just a few options that we have available. Come down to Las Vegas Cyclery on December 17th or our Holiday Party and see what other recycled goods we have. Also, if you seem to have a lot of bike parts laying around the house (maybe your significant other is slightly obsessed) there are MANY great ideas online for DIY gifts/projects.
