Holiday Trips For Your Entire List

December 23, 2015
One reveler’s winter wonderland is another’s wasted vacation.

There are as many ways to celebrate the holiday season as there are people to celebrate it. That makes our non-profit fundraising auction travel packages a perfect fit for those days off around the end of the year; we’ve got as many destinations in our catalog as there are tastes, as well. If you’re looking to send donors on trips that they’ll love (and for which they’ll love to place big bids), it might be good to think about the types of celebrants they are.

The Adventurer
Gift List: North Face apparel, REI gift certificates
The Trip: From British Columbia to Park City and Lake Tahoe, we’ve got trips for every winter sports participant. If you’ve got a donor base that lives for the adrenaline rush of skiing or snowboarding, our “Perfect Winter Wonderland” package sends supporters to one of the top-ranked ski areas in the world, Whistler, which hosted the 2010 Olympics on its mountains. It is one of several packages that either include lift tickets or are set at destinations within walking distance of a downhill paradise.

The Nester
Gift List: Gourmet hot cocoa mix, chunky sweaters.
The Trip: Is there a more seasonally-appropriate way of celebrating the holidays than cuddling up with a loved one next to a roaring fire? For travelers who are more in the apres-ski scene than skiing itself, heading out into the wild can be a wonderful break from the day-to-day. Our “Premier Retreat in the American West” trip involves four days and three nights in gorgeous Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in a 400-square foot cabin with all the amenities one could want. The resort also features a spa, outdoor heated pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, so there’s no shortage of areas in which to get warm and cozy.

The Gatherer
Gift List: The presence of family members spread out around the country.
The Trip: Getting the entire family together at home for the holidays can be tough. But for the times that all the schedules align, why not gather the crew in a new, destination-worthy location – and one that takes care of the cleaning and prepping of the bedrooms for you? We added a plethora of options to our Villas and Residences catalog this year, meaning there are now trips to everywhere from Bali to Aspen that feature accommodations for up to 10 people. The best part: No one is consigned to sleeping on the couch for the holidays in a full home.

The Snowbird
Gift List: Sunscreen, a new beach tote.
The Trip: Of course, the idea for a “white Christmas” is anathema to some, who would rather shun cold temperatures and chase the sun. For them, a Caribbean cruise may be the perfect balm. Our trips like “Sail the Southern Caribbean Seas” and “The Western Caribbean’s Rhythms At Sea” combine veranda stateroom luxury with the restorative power of the sun’s rays to keep even the most cold-adverse traveler happy.
