Five experience gifts for kids this holiday season

It’s almost the holiday season and if you are like most parents, you are probably thinking: My kid needs a ton more toys!

Just kidding!

If your kiddo has more toys than they play with, you might be looking for alternative holiday gift ideas this year.

You are in luck!

Here are five experience gifts for kids this holiday season. Read on!

Museum membership

If you are lucky to live in an area with a great science or children’s museum, this one is a no brainer. An annual membership means you never have to wonder what to do on a rainy or cold day.

Bonus: Some museums offer reciprocal agreements, so if you travel, you can use your membership for free or discounted admissions elsewhere!

Sporting event or arts tickets

Expose your little one to something new with tickets to a sporting event, concert, or play. Most arts venues offer either child-friendly or child-focused performances or events and if you haven’t taken your child to a baseball game, now is the time!


Is your kiddo a budding dancer? Artist? Swimmer? Invest in lessons, via a gift certificate. You can round out this gift by giving a new swimsuit and goggles for swim lessons or new art supplies for an art class.

Book store gift certificate and date

What kid wouldn’t love a chance to buy some new books AND spend an afternoon with mom or dad? It’s a no brainer. We know, you probably have a TON of books already, but letting your kid pick out just what he or she wants and bonding over a meal and then snuggling up to read will create life-long memories.


This one is a bit pricier, but if you are looking for a family gift, what better way to do it up than a vacation. If you are feeling spendy, a week at Disney makes a GREAT gift; otherwise, a weekend at a waterpark could suffice.
