Aah the holiday season. No doubt the most flurried time of the year, and I’m not just talking snow. Amid the white drifts of winter comes the treasure hunt that is gift shopping. Do you find yourself conflicted over what to get your loved ones? The feeling of giving meaningful gifts is the best part of the holiday season.

Fear not! Though we may have countless options and are bombarded with black Friday sales, digital ads and constant “BUY, BUY, BUY” campaigns, I have some ideas for you to give meaningful gifts.

Make lasting family memories by giving the gift of an Alta vacation for the holidays. Giving an experience and a future memory to a loved one will last much longer than a gift card.
