Gift Experiences with a Holiday Vacation Far from the Ordinary

A toy, a sweater, a bauble, a tool… these things only last so long on our shelves and in our minds. But a vacation? Those are memories and experiences you’ll carry with you for a lifetime! Let Sheraton help you discover new places and ways to give to your loved ones this season, as we tend to be happier when sharing experiences as opposed to the exchange of more material things. From a mountain top or island beach, a shot of Southern hospitality or wine country panache, Sheraton has just the spot to swap your gift bags for carry-ons.
