           Mom's Prefer Experience Gifts Over Knick Knacks
 ‘Experience’ gifts like a hot air balloon ride are popular because the balloon provides
   a platform for a 360 degree view with once in a lifetime visual creating a vivid and
lasting memory. If people really want to make special occasions ‘special’ they need to
do something special like collecting experiences rather than knick-knacks to put on a
                                            shelf.

Plymouth, MI (April 18, 2012) -- This Mother’s Day, many moms across Michigan will be
taking a trip of a lifetime in a hot air balloon.

“Experience’ gifts like a hot air balloon ride are popular because the balloon provides a
platform for a 360 degree view with once in a lifetime visual creating a vivid and lasting
memory. If people really want to make special occasions ‘special’ they need to do something
special like collecting experiences rather than knick-knacks to put on a shelf,” says Scott
Lorenz, President and Chief Pilot of Westwind Balloon Company of Plymouth, Michigan.

“It’s not just for mom either. Since two people go along with the pilot it’s a perfect experience
gift that both mom and dad or other friends and family can enjoy together because each flight
is for two people.”

Lorenz says nobody forgets their first balloon flight because it’s an experience that cannot
compare to anything else. The sensation of flying over trees, lakes and streams, spotting
deer and other wildlife is unique and inspiring. When a gift touches someone both
emotionally and on a multi-sensory level they never forget it.

The balloon flight costs $695 for two people. Gift certificates for flights in the area over
Kensington Park in Milford, Michigan can be purchased by calling 734-667-2098 or by
