There’s an art to great gift-giving, isn’t there? We all know those folks who seem to be able to find the best holiday gift for anyone — be the lucky recipient a friend, family member, colleague, neighbor or near-stranger. And we’re here to help you look that good, dear reader, but introducing an idea that may not even have occurred to you yet: the idea of giving a skydiving gift certificate. Whoa, right? Listen up. Here’s why.
When you gift a skydive, the magic starts long before the propellers start spinning. It starts when your recipient tears open that envelope and finds two miles of freefall inside. Prepare for jaws to drop, ‘cause this particular gift certainly hasn’t made a previous appearance under the Christmas tree (or next to the birthday cake, or on the Bar/t Mitzvah table, or in the wedding bounty).
What makes it so cool is that giving a skydive as a gift presents as much a challenge to the recipient as it does affection. You’re basically telling someone that you know they’re brave enough, bold enough and curious enough to do something that might seem impossible to a lesser soul. That’s a fistbump if we’ve ever seen one!
Hot tip: Gift a tandem skydive to the people that matter most to you and get ‘em all scheduled for the same day. Doing so means that your giftees are going to be able to look into a familiar face on the plane — and after they land — and the bond that accompanies that experience is going to rock the worlds of everyone involved.
Here’s why: Skydiving quite frankly defies description. It’s ineffable. It’s a feeling without comparison. To share that experience — to feel connected in that utterly unique memory — creates and strengthens the bonds between individuals. This doesn’t have to be a family-friends thing, either — the same is true whether you’re jumping with the people you love or with your coolest business colleagues.
Extra-specially for badass Santa Clauses, we’re offering a holiday value: if you buy gift certificates during our Black Friday Sale, you’ll pay just $199 for a skydive that sends your recipient all the way up to a towering 14,000′.
Y’know how we were talking a moment ago about the bonding power of skydiving? Well: we advise that you treat yourself and schedule your own skydive alongside your giftees. Why? Well: Accountability is magic. If you plan to go skydiving alone, you’re considerably more likely to chicken out. Taking a buddy (or a tribe!) along for the journey not only increases your enjoyment, it increases your accountability — and it’s a gift to yourself that you’ll treasure forever.
What are you waiting for? Let’s get that gift-wrap ready and pack up a skydive or two.
This was a great experience! The staff were friendly, the TI (Amber) was informative and made it fun. I felt very safe and in the care of a qualified and capable TI. Skydive Tecumseh has been around for over 50 years and I can see why. This is a fantastic place to check off one's bucket list, have fun with friends, and do something exhilarating. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to have a chance of a lifetime.
