#SPURcouple Ellie and Chad
have always gifted experiences to each other for special events. Spur was a perfect fit.
Ellie and Chad are both very young. Ellie is a ballet teacher and Chad is a sound and audio technician. They are both outgoing and very involved in the performing arts. Loving the outdoors, they would never say no to a hike or a camping trip. The most memorable dates include spending days at a lake trying to wind surf, learning to do aerial silks together, dining at dinner detective, exploring a different city, countless nights at the drive-in, and many more. Ellie and Chad both see the positive effects of building their relationship together with new experiences.
“My husband and I chose Spur because we love doing things together from skiing to boating. We first chose the hot air balloon ride because it was on our bucket list. We both loved the Idea of enjoying experiences, from winemaking to glassblowing, more than gifts.”
“Many of these experiences included interesting ways to learn something new! It was difficult to pick only a few experiences when Spur has so many great options! Also, the charity we picked helps support our troops. I was really excited about that.”
#SPURcouple Brynja and Jason
enjoy creating memories with friends and family and are constantly looking for new things to do.
Jason and Brynja met playing volleyball and quickly realized they wanted to spend a significant amount of time together outdoors. Enjoying experiences with family and friends is huge for the couple. Before they got married,they enjoyed so many great activities in Colorado. Their intention is to continue to experience life with family and friends. The “Join Us” option for Spur experiences helped them already have group events planned for after the wedding.
“We chose to do Spur because we wanted to have amazing memories with each other and with friends! We already owned most of the traditional home gifts you get for your wedding so this was something exciting to do instead!”
“Our favorites dates were the hot air balloon ride and snowmobiling. The hot air balloon ride was something for the two of us that we would have never done on our own. Snowmobiling was a blast because we got to do this with a group of our friends and made a weekend trip out of it. Amazing memories from both!”
#SPURcouple James and Deanna
had spent their three years of dating trying to outdo each other by planning ever-more elaborate surprise dates.
From Snowshoe dinner dates to learning to make sushi with a private chef. They love experiences and were ecstatic when they registered with Spur. Now they could leave the planning to someone else.
“Seven years after college, we both already had most of the household goods we needed. Our dating life has been full of adventure, and we didn’t want that to stop after marriage. The process was easy and many guests commented that they loved buying us experiences.”
“We needed a few items, like new linens and decor for our new house, so we created a small registry at Crate & Barrel. But overall we knew that we wanted to create memories together more than we wanted to collect more things, so we used Spur as our main registry.”
