The gift-giving platform that offers experiences instead of things

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

If you’re going to spend a good amount of money on a gift for someone, you want it to be something special, something thoughtful, something they can look back on in a few years time and be reminded of the wonderful person you are.

After all, material things can only satisfy someone for so long – possessions can get lost or broken but good memories can last a lifetime.

Lost for ideas on how to buy someone an unforgettable experience?

Well, an online store for the world’s greatest experiences exists and it’s called Tinggly. The platform’s database is made up of hundreds of once in a lifetime activities that people can buy their partners, friends, family and loved ones.

Linas Ceikus, Tinggly’s CEO says,“At Tinggly, we love helping and encouraging people to move away from their possessions and instead experience the world around them. As philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau said: ‘The person who has lived the most is not the one with the most years but the one with the richest life experiences.’”

Over a hundred amazing experiences is a lot to choose from and the last thing you want to do is buy your mum a cooking class in Rio just to find out she’s busy that day. Luckily all the gift-buyer needs to do is buy the one-price gift box and the recipient can choose the experience they want and when they want to do it – and they have two years to do so!

There are three main Tinggly gift sets ranging in price from £59 ($72 USD) to £199 ($244 USD), the cheapest offering a collection of more than 180 activities, and the most expensive with over 340 activities. You can even use Tinggly’s Bucket List to fulfill your lifetime goals.

“Tinggly is the place where you can actually buy everything from Red-Bull type extreme activities, to super exclusive, fancy experiences as well,” Ceikus says. “People too often think these opportunities are only for a chosen few but, with Tinggly, they can find those once in a lifetime opportunities, leaving us to take care of everything else.”

>Now the planet is so easily accessible – with world tourism currently growing at a faster rate than world trade – we’ve seen the fantastic, mind-blowing places and activities shown on TV or on our friends’ facebook walls. We know they’re out there, and we want to get a piece of the action.

Tinggly has appeared just at the right time. From coffee tours in Costa Rica, ice-diving in France and swimming with sharks in New Zealand, Tinggly has got most of the globe covered. Those free-spirited travelers itching to get away, now have the perfect excuse to do so – it would be rude to say no.

Tinggly is stretching our imagination and making gift-giving a whole lot more fun. Don’t settle for an imaginary dinner with an astronaut when you can have the real thing.
