You can blame it on Marie Kondo or this new trend of living minimally but I have been in a purging mood and getting rid of so much useless shit I had in my apartment for years. I have gone on so many rants about how people gift one another useless crap that isn't functional, desired or even special. This year I have told all my friends and family not to buy me anything (because I'm still on team #funemployment and I'm not buying shit for anyone) but I still pride myself on being a great gift giver.
Some of the key attributes of being a great gift giver include:
Which brings me to my list of experiences worth gifting (extra points if you also gift any of these with homemade cookies too).
Also, sorry in advance - this list features and experiences in the lower Mainland area because this is where I live and I don't know if any experiences elsewhere.

These are all things I've done and maybe this is my way of sharing gratitude for some of the bomb dot com activities I have had the privilege of experiencing.
Also if you want to make the link for this post your Bumble prompt of your ideal first date I think that would be a great idea.
Vancouver has a great comedy scene with a lot of really intelligent comedians that don't have to resort to outdated humour for the LOLs and for the most part, comedy shows tend to be on the more affordable side of things you can do in Vancouver.

The fine print: Full disclosure, some of the things above I know I was lucky to get to experience for free and I understand that it might not be practical to gift someone these expensive things during what is already an expensive (and stressful) time of the year. At the end of the day, I just want to have fun and spend time with my friends, whether it's out doing one of the things above or lounging around their apartment. As corny as it's sound I appreciate so much when people carve out time for me during this hectic time of year and it's the people who make an experience.
