Looking for the best graduation gift this side of the Mississippi river? We’ve got a unique graduation gift idea they will never see coming: a skydive! Not sure how something like that would work? Allow us to explain!
How do I give skydiving as a gift?
When it comes to picking a unique graduation gift, hassle-free is the way to be. And, you better believe, getting a skydiving graduation gift is easy peasy lemon squeezy.
At Skydive STL, we have several gift certificate options. There are options for purchasing tandem skydiving packages complete with media services or packages where the tandem skydive and video options can be purchased separately. We have found that the latter option works perfectly if you’d like to split the graduation gift between two people: one person can purchase the skydive certificate while the other purchases a certificate for photo/video.
How does skydiving work?
On a tandem skydive, the student skydiver is attached via a harness to a licensed skydiving instructor. On a tandem skydive, the instructor is responsible for the operation of all equipment on the skydive. Before the skydive, the tandem student will receive a briefing from the instructor on the proper body position for exiting the aircraft and in freefall as well as landing procedures. For more information, check out the FAQs or read here how to prepare for the first skydive!
What’s the process of redeeming a skydiving gift certificate?
The recipient of the gift certificate can reserve the date and time of their skydiving appointment online or over the phone. From there, the jumper needs only to arrive at their scheduled time dressed appropriately, and we will take over from there.
The Coolest Gift They’ll Ever Get
Giving skydiving as a graduation gift is the epitome of cool. In fact, we bet you would be hard-pressed to come up with a more unique graduation gift.
Now, if you really want to level up your relationship with the recipient, tag along, make the leap yourself, and create one epic memory to cherish for a lifetime. Or if skydiving really isn’t your thing, there’s always room for another excited ground crew member to provide moral support while the graduate gears up and plenty of space for a section of folks to cheer them on as they land!
