GiftAStay to Athens, GA

GiftAStay is a hub for simple, meaningful gift-giving. UGA Marketing students Thomas McMullen and Abigail Snyder began the idea for GiftAStay in a summer entrepreneurship sprint, with the hopes of restoring local and regional travel to the city they love. Snyder has since partnered with the Athens Convention & Visitors Bureau to bring the idea to life as a holiday campaign. Beginning in the Classic City, GiftAStay hopes to aid a pandemic-stricken hospitality industry through "the gift of destination."

Two ways to Gift A Stay to Athens:

1. Purchase a hotel gift card that may be redeemed at any time - this gift is perfect for that hard-to-buy for person who needs a night away. Perhaps you know a mom who has spent the better part of 2020 homeschooling her children while also working from home? Or you want to invite your in-laws to visit, but maintain social distancing (we won't tell them it's not because of Covid), or maybe you and your partner just need a night away from the kids/pets/life. Whatever the reason and whomever the recipient, a gift certificate to an Athens hotel is sure to delight even the Grinch!

2. Purchase one of the packages below - these are great if you know the date and are ready to book! Join us in Athens for one of our many upcoming holiday events or perhaps you want to plan a weekend here in January after the holiday season. Know the date? Book now!
