Maybe this year you won't to give the gift of a vacation for someone important in your life. A recent study from PR Newswire came out that said that most Americans would take "experiences" over material gifts this year.

77% of us would prefer getting some sort of unique experience like concert tickets or a vacation over anything else you'd might find under the tree. To get more detailed about this, 63% of Americans admit that they'd love to be surprised with some sort of travel opportunity.

The other 37% seem like sticks in the mud...

If you're a farmer/farmer at heart then maybe this next one will be more your speed.

This chicken coop in Fayette has recently been renovated to be a tiny home. It's located on 300 acres of farmland right by a winery which is owned by the same people who own this little house.

While this is a unique tiny home, it's not the only location on the premises. Not too far away there is another interesting Airbnb owned by the same people, but this one is a grain bin. Check it out down below!
