Two years ago, my now-hus­band and I took a va­ca­tion in lieu of an en­gage­ment ring. We started on the coast, where we ate plates of beans and plan­tains in Jacó, ad­mired the scenic drive along the Pa­cific Coast and ended up at an in­cred­i­ble eco-lodge over­look­ing the ocean. Se­cluded in our jun­gle oa­sis, we spent days swim­ming in nat­u­ral pools, hik­ing to a de­serted beach and watch­ing each amaz­ing sun­set with a cock­tail in hand. I’d take that over a ring any day.

Our hol­i­day tra­di­tion is to share ex­pe­ri­ences in­stead of buy­ing gifts.
