LivingSocial Gift Guide & a Giveaway! “Let’s gift them something to talk about!”
Let’s Gift Them Something to Talk About! is a sponsored post in partnership with LivingSocial.
I am a huge fan of gifting experiences over a thing. Things are fun, but experiences are unique and offer the opportunity to create precious memories that last far longer than a sweater, hat, or even this year’s hottest toy! Experiences that you can get out and go with your family and friends are thoughtful and unexpected. On LivingSocial you have dozens of choices when it comes to experiences and outings for special gifts this holiday season! Here are my favorite gift options that you can purchase on LivingSocial right now!
Lessons – Last year we gifted our littlest with dance lessons for Christmas.
It was perfect to try out lessons with a one month certificate to see if it was her ‘thing’. The year before our oldest two received swimming lessons with LivingSocial certificates! This was a perfect gift! The kids were able to spend time in a pool playing but they also learned valuable life lessons. Another fun option is a one time lesson themed outing – our readers shared this awesome photo from a wine and painting night!
Sporting Event – Who doesn’t love a good Mud Run or Color Run? OK, well I don’t – but this is such a fun event for so many. Do you have a sorta runner on your gift list?
Fun runs are typically 5K – 10K and involve getting active and maybe a little messy. Exercise, stress relief, silliness – and all those fun memories can be because you gifted your friend with a Fun Run Admission! Build those memories together by getting one for your friend and one for yourself. Make sure to also check for running gear on LivingSocial too!
Getaway! You can easily book a weekend stay-cation or even book that dream vacation you very favorite person has been dreaming about!
Our family loves visiting LEGOLAND California and guess what is listed on LivingSocial right now? A LEGOLAND and the Grand Pacific Palisades Hotel deal! This deal starts at $299 including tickets to LEGOLAND, Sea Life Aquarium, and a hotel stay with a free breakfast buffet!
Not sure who reading might be in a generous mood, but you can purchase a Maui vacation right now at an excellent discount! *hint hint*
Something Daring and unexpected! How about a Hot Air Balloon Ride?
Imagine the excitement of opening up a hot air balloon flight?! Think of the memories created and the beautiful photos your friends will be able to take on their flight? Here in SoCal there are options all over – Temecula and Del Mar are very popular locations for Hot Air Balloon Rides!
One of the best parts about deciding to gift an experience rather than something you need to purchase at the store – you can shop last minute! If you are looking for a fun gift – check out LivingSocial! Not only is LivingSocial a great way to get out and enjoy the town, it is budget friendly too! Often times LivingSocial has the very best deals available on all the options I shared above! The gift guide above are a few deals in my area – SoCal – but there are hundreds of cities world wide that you can choose from!
