Study: Better to spend on experiences

Researchers asked people to rate a recent purchase intended to make them happy. They found that people were more satisfied with life experiences, such as a trip to the beach or a meal.

They say the reason may be that life experiences often bring someone closer to another person and satisfy a natural human need to be connected to others.

Experiences also provide "memory capital" that can be drawn on in less happy times.
