Do you have someone in your life this is super active and loves a thrill? If so, Mandi Harman has some great gift ideas for those that you love. Here’s what she has to say-
When you have a loved one who is of adventurous spirit, it can be a number of things. It can be fascinating – as they tell you of trips they have taken and things they have done. Exhausting – as they encourage you to join them on skiing or sailing jaunts. When someone is an adrenaline junkie, you tend to worry what they might do in search of the next big buzz.
At the same time, they are who they are, and that’s why you love them. If you try to clip those wings, you’ll end up with someone who resents you. So even if it doesn’t make you as excited as it makes them, you know you love the person. Even if you don’t like the lifestyle, you allow it and do what you can to make peace with it. And that can even mean giving them gifts that relate to it.
This one is easy. If you know someone who has a taste for the slopes – and you can’t face getting on there with them – no problem. You can still surprise them with a skiing holiday.
The great thing about this is that you don’t need to hit the mountainside yourself (at least, not at speed). There is a lot more to see and do than strap the skis on yourself. Every ski resort in the world is set in beautiful mountain scenery – so while they’re testing the runs, you can enjoy the resort. And then meet up again in the afternoon for meals, relaxation, and date night.
Motorcycles are much maligned and misunderstood in the transport world. There are those who see them as a danger to those who ride them and those around them alike. But the truth is, in the hands of a responsible rider they are as safe as cars.
The key word there is “responsible.” Doctors have a word for people who ride bikes without the appropriate safety gear: “donors.” Make sure your loved one is safe – and show you care by perusing the safety gear on show over here.
Extreme Sports Lovers
There has been an explosion of popularity in extreme sports over the last decade or so. Once considered to be the hobby of people who appeared in soft drink commercials, they’re now big business. As well as that, they are an adrenaline rush for a growing tribe of followers and a great way to stay in shape.
If you are close to an extreme sports nut, then a ticket to the increasingly popular X Games is a way of sharing their thrill while staying by their side. They needn’t worry about it just being an occasion to watch, either. There are interactive elements for fans – who knows? Maybe you’ll find something you enjoy doing and can share with your loved one?
Being close to someone with an adrenaline habit can be a testing life – but if you show an interest and learn about it, you can find fun there too.
