I’m a firm believer that experiences make the best gifts. But the next best thing? Something that recollects those experiences.
One of my favorite gifts is an ode to our trips and hikes. My husband took a piece of recycled wood, stained it with my favorite color (turquoise), and ordered Hipstamatic pictures he had taken in our travels.
Every time I look at it, I remember hiking around a nearby lake on a Black Friday, sitting on the dock in Tennessee watching the sunset, marveling at Haystack Rock in Oregon, and standing in amazement in front of Multnomah Falls.
It’s a great project to complete for yourself––or maybe for a special someone for a birthday or anniversary.
