Cloud 9 Living Experience Gifts for Him and Her

From the first experience we sold, which happened to be the private surfing lesson, to where we are today has been a wonderful journey.

On Sept. 1, 2012, Cloud 9 Living will celebrate seven years as the eCommerce site gift givers flock to for their experience gift needs. Cloud 9 Living was founded on Sept. 1, 2005 by John Augst and Adam Michaels with the idea that memories last forever while material objects fade away; adopting the slogan “create a memory, give an experience.”

Since its inception as one of the first experience gifts company in the United States, Cloud 9 Living has hit many milestones ranging from awards & prominent press features, to expanding their experience portfolio to over 1,700 experiences offered in 43 regions across the U.S.. A portfolio that now ranges from golf gifts and learn to fly lessons to spa packages and dinner cruises.

Cloud 9 Living has been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual lists of the Fastest Growing Private Companies in the U.S. three times, including a spot at #468 in 2010, and to the Mercury 100 list of the Fastest Growing Companies in Boulder County four times. And press on the company has appeared in media outlets including the Los Angeles Times, Outside magazine, SHAPE Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, on the TODAY show and in many more locations.

Cloud 9 Living also hit milestones like launching their blog in September 2009, crossing the 10,000 Facebook fans mark in May 2012, and creating a gift pack with a smaller carbon footprint in November of 2011.

“From the first experience we sold, which happened to be the private surfing lesson, to where we are today has been a wonderful journey,” said John Augst, President and founder of Cloud 9 Living. “We’ve always been fortunate to have an amazing staff of passionate people who truly believe in our product. Without each and every one of them, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”
As a company, Cloud 9 Living has sold tens of thousands of gifts to gift givers around the world; in turn creating new experiences for tens of thousands of gift recipients while putting smiles on their faces.

“As we look forward to the years to come, we hope to keep spreading the happiness that experiences bring to our customers’ lives,” Augst said.
