In one U.S. survey, the following were given as the top reasons for traveling.
“What I did for gifts when I was a poor college student was do paint-by-numbers and frame them and give them to friends – it doubled as my decompressing/ relaxing time and also as a gift!”
“My partner recently got me a cooking class over Skype for my birthday. I just signed up to do it in a couple weekends – I’ll be making homemade ravioli with someone in Italy!”
“One winter break I was home and offered to organize my sister’s room. She is a sentimental T-shirt collector and I convinced her to pick her favorites she wasn’t actually wearing anymore for me to make into a T-shirt quilt. I shared my skills of organization and gave a handmade gift of a quilt.”
