Give the gift of great memories

Give the gift of great memories

There’s an increasing pile of research out there that suggests that spending money on experiences, not things, makes most of us most happy. So how do you incorporate that into your gift giving? We’ve got you.

We’ve searched online and off to find unique gifts that are all about making and sharing memories together with those you love. We’ve also asked Capture employees about the gifts they’ve given and received that have made a big impression. We hope you have as much fun enjoying these as we’ve had seeking them out. 

From all of us to all of you, our very best wishes for happy, healthy, and safe celebrations this holiday season.

Anna: "Someone put together a sushi making kit for me with everything you need to make homemade sushi! They even included a small fan for cooling the sushi rice. The attention to detail was so thoughtful and I still use it years later!"

Cam: “The people I work with are foodies, so one year I did DIY 'Mini-Mergency Snak-Paks.' I filled a cute hanging pouch with each person’s favorite snacks and hung it at their desk.”

Shelby: "I started reading the Harry Potter series a few times as a kid, but never finished. Nearly two decades later, my husband surprised me with a beautiful hardback set to keep forever. I finally finished reading the series! And I know we will read these with our kids one day.”
