If you are looking to really "wow" a loved one this holiday, what better gift to give them than a memorable trip? Plus, a vacation is the perfect way to break up the winter months, no matter if you're heading to somewhere warm and sunny or taking advantage of the snowy season.

Trips not only give you something to look forward after the holidays wind down, but they can be much more meaningful than a material present.

Trips that make incredible gifts

Turks & Caicos, Caribbean

There is no better way to get away from the cold winter months than with a trip to the beach! Snorkel in Grand Turk and then grab lunch by the water for a quick taste of summer. 

Aspen, Colorado

If you can't get enough of the snow and winter sports, then Aspen is the place for you! Grab your skis, head over for a day on Buttermilk Mountain, then back to the resort for a warm pick-me-up.

Manhattan, New York

Really get into the holiday spirit this year by taking a trip to New York to see all of the decorations. But the only way you'll be able to see everything in one trip is from above -- take a helicopter ride above the buzz and really take in the city.

Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Beat the crowds (and the summer heat) by visiting this National Park in the off-season. Hike the quiet trails during the day and head back to the El Tovar Hotel for unparalleled views and accommodations.

Tulum, Mexico

Go on an adventure and catch a glimpse of the ancient world in Tulum this winter! See the Mayan ruins with a day trip to Chichen Itza or swim in the Grand Cenote for an unforgettable trip.

Washington, D.C.

Check out our nation's capital this holiday season, and see the monuments all lit up by taking a moonlight trolley tour around the city. Don't forget to stop by the National Christmas tree and the museums!

Vancouver, Canada

No matter the season, there is never a shortage of things to do in Vancouver. Take a walk through the beautiful Stanley Park, visit the Museum of Anthropology or visit the shops at Granville Island.
