With Christmas just days away, many parents are feeling one of two things: stressed about the presents they have left to buy, or overwhelmed with all the stuff already filling the house. Gifts are fun, both to give and to receive, but at some point they just becomes more stuff. At Skatetown TX, we have another way of looking at things. Give experiences as holiday gifts this year!
Why Experiences Make Better Gifts
Parents spend an average of $271 each Christmas. Per kid! But studies show that it’s not making kids any happier. In fact, according to psychologists, spending money on experiences “provide[s] more enduring happiness” than spending money on stuff.
How to Give an Experience as a Gift
- Load up the car! You never know where your next adventure will find you.
- Do some research. Does your child love art or history? A trip to the museum will help them have fun while they learn. Look for events and special exhibits for extra fun. Want to stay active, too? At Skatetown TX, we have fun seasonal and holiday events to keep the whole family happy.
- Invest in the future. Will your kids be disappointed if they don’t have a gift to unwrap on Christmas morning? We can help! By investing in a gift like roller-skates, you’re giving an experience for life! Skating keeps kids active, it’s fun, and it’s great for the whole family. You can also give a Skatetown TX gift card for big fun anytime.
Nothing gives us joy like watching kids smile as they roll around the rink. Celebrate the holidays at Skatetown in Vidor, TX.
