If you are looking for experience based gift ideas, then check out our list below.
If your family is anything like mine, the last thing we need at Christmas is more stuff. We have too many clothes, too many toys, too much everything. Christmas becomes an overwhelming overload of more stuff. Buying gifts becomes stressful. Will they like it? Will they use it? The day after Christmas is even more stressful. Where am I going to put all this? According to Finder.com, more than 60% of Americans don’t like the gifts they receive, leading gift-givers to waste 15.2 billion dollars this holiday season.
As we have over the past few years we are asking our friends and family to think of gifts that are more about experiences rather than material things. We are saving up for another trip to Orlando.
We are going to spend more time enjoying time together and creating memories. We plan to visit Christmas Light Displays in our area, enjoy Breakfast with Santa, go sledding once it snows, and discover new places to play. What is at the top of your experience gift list?
“‘Twas the Night Before…” by Cirque du Soleil is an exhilarating spin on the beloved Christmas classic as only Cirque du Soleil could imagine. Join Isabella, a curious girl, jaded by the craze surrounding Christmas, as she is whisked away to an upside-down, inside-out world of the poem where she meets colorful characters of this timeless classic. Cirque du Soleil’s first-ever Christmas show, ‘Twas the Night Before… is a flurry of love, Christmas cheer, rip-roaring fun and hugely lovable characters that will become a new tradition for families to cherish.
