Ahh, the holidays – that time of the year when we gift Dad another floral print tie, Mom gets cozy slippers, and maybe a bottle of wine for your cool aunt. *Yawn*
Rather than going with the same old stuff yet again this year, try giving a gift that will really knock their socks off. Tough Mudder tickets are one of those gifts that inspire excitement, nerves, and just a hint of dread. In fact, when you gift your friends and family with Tough Mudder tickets, you’re actually giving so much more than you think.
Here’s a few other gifts your loved ones receive along with those tickets.
Give the Gift of an Experience
Did you know that according to psychology, we’re more likely to experience joy when receiving an experience rather than a material possession? This is because possessions tend to gather dust, while experiences get more shiny as time passes. Experiencing ten miles of thrilling, terrifying fun together is not only enjoyable at the time, it makes for great memories.
Give the Gift of Silliness
If there’s one thing that rings true about Mudder Nation, it’s that we don’t take ourselves seriously. Sure, we are goal-oriented and like to overcome challenges, but we also know that there’s nothing so serious in life that a little muddy goodness and ridiculous obstacles can’t make better. Give your loved ones the gift of laughing at themselves and at you.
Give the Gift of Achievement
Want to make your partner feel extra good this holiday season? Give them a gloriously fun opportunity to achieve something big. While we can’t actually give somebody an achievement (that’s something we all have to earn for ourselves) you can inspire and enable them to achieve it on their own.
Are they REALLY up for a challenge? Level up and get Tougher tickets for our competitive wave or commit to achieving big goals together and conquer Toughest or World’s Toughest Mudder.
Give the Gift of Fear
While fear doesn’t sound like a very nice gift to give a friend or family member, it’s actually proven that going through difficult situations together and overcoming fears bonds you more closely to another person. Think about how fun it feels to watch a horror movie with a friend, ride a roller coaster, or stroll through a haunted house. Now multiply that feeling by ten miles and toss in some endorphins with a hint of electricity for added sparks. You’re welcome.
Give the Gift of a Killer Photo Op
While nobody does a Tough Mudder for the new profile pic (right?) it is an added perk of the experience. Not only will you get a killer experience with memories that will last for years to come, it’s an added bonus that you get bragging rights and a nice photo to go with it.
When you give the gift of Tough Mudder, you’re giving more than just an event. You’re giving a whole-ass adventure that will leave your loved ones grinning for days after.
