Celebrate Or Commemorate? When Material Purchases Lead to Stronger Memories and More Happiness
Consumers often choose how to honor a special occasion: Celebrate with an experience (e.g., a party) or commemorate with a material purchase (e.g., watch, ring). This research challenges the prevailing experiential advantage, providing evidence that commemorating (vs. celebrating) can lead to stronger memories and more positive affect over time.
