Don’t know what gifts to buy for the holidays? Do you wish you could travel NOW?

My grandmother told us every year not to give her gifts. What she wanted was us at her table every Sunday for lunch. As a mom, I don’t want things from my adult children either. I want experiences with them. I’ll never forget the Christmas we spent together in London…the trip Taylor and I did to Captiva Island…the ride cross-country with Cole when he moved to Denver .

I love traveling with friends. With borders closed, we’ve been grounded. Then Sally said that she and her daughter were designing their own espadrilles in Barcelona via Airbnb experiences. She said we should meet on our birthdays this year in Italy. I was thrilled! We made limoncello on the Amalfi Coast with tour guide Rosa (my next podcast guest) on my birthday. Sally was in Virginia. I was in Nashville, and two couples Zoomed in from Canada. On Sally’s birthday we will learn about spiced wines in Naples from archaeologist Raffaele.

You can give the people in your life the world — literally — here. And make new friends who invite you into their homes. They’ll also help you plan your next trip to their cities.

What do the people in your life love to do? Do they love animalsmusic, dancing, or other artshistory and cultureyoga…fitnesscooking or wine tasting? SO MANY CHOICES. Instead of traveling to India this weekend by streaming The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel again, I’ll Dance it up in my kitchen with this Indian Chef.
