Nick and I have been in an experience-based gift giving phase due to the lack of physical goods we can take with us to Manila. I started poking around on the internet and came across this fabulous site called Excitations. The premise is simple – select the region of the country you live in (Chicago is the nearest one for MN), identify your price range ($50-$500) and pick from one of the 12 categories of gifts. Then peruse the options, purchase and select your delivery method. It always amazes me how much simple, well-designed solutions delight me! And just like that you’ve got yourself one fantastic gift….
