Posted: November 25, 2019 Skip the crazy shopping
We’ve all been there. You spend weeks in November stalking amazon to find the best deals, circling fliers that come in the mail, and sitting in traffic trying to get out of the mall- and for what? To get your child the newest Fingerling Untamed Raptor they’ve been dreaming of “forever.” Then the dreaded morning of December 27th rolls around and all of the new toys are thrown in the corner to collect dust, and the all too anticipated “I’m bored” comes out of their lips just days after Winter Break started. And that’s why this year, I am skipping the Amazon wish list, skipping the mall traffic, and throwing those flyers in the recycling. This year, I’m challenging you to forgo some of the material gifts, and give the gift of memories and experiences because you don’t remember what you got your children for Christmas last year, and neither do they. Here’s your guide to gifting memories, experiences, and bonding this holiday season.
