6 Fun & Local Experience Gifts for Kids

Holiday shopping is stressful, and the truth is, having more toys (a.k.a. messes waiting in the wings) at home is stressful too. This Christmas, consider a new kind of gift – an experience that the littles in your life won’t forget.


A Trip to the Theatre

Get dressed up and spend an afternoon or evening at the theatre. The timeless tradition creates memories that last a lifetime. Find tickets to a holiday show or make plans for next year!


Get a Family Museum Membership

Memberships aren’t cheap but they support vital community assets AND give you a go-to outing for a year. We love memberships because they quickly pay for themselves. A day at the Zoo means you’ll want to spend the ENTIRE day at the zoo (which can be a lot for everyone), with a membership you can stop by for an hour at anytime and have a lot of fun!


Family Getaway

You don’t need a plane ticket or even a long car ride for a fun family getaway. Get out of the house and have a good time at an indoor waterpark. Then order some room service and stay up late watching movies on demand in your hotel room. It might not feel far for you, but your kids will think you went to the end of the earth.


Sports Tickets

Detroit is a sport city. We can’t escape our fandom and win or lose, a game is always more fun when your kids are cheering for the home team in the seat next to you. Pick up a team shirt and put tickets to a game with it.


MESP (Michigan Education Savings Program)

It may not be the most appealing gift for kids to receive, but they certainly will appreciate the contributions to their education when the time comes!


Sign Up For A Class 

Christmas joy can come every week when you have a class to look forward to. Cultivate your little one’s big talent or help them find it with an 8 week class.
