This morning on the Field Trips with Sue segment on CBS Better Mornings Atlanta we went shopping! Instead of a new toy or sweater, we focused on experiential gifts and items that can take kids around the world. If you’re stumped on a present for the holidays, here are some fantastic suggestions.
In the first hour we focused on Experiential Gifts for the Holidays (click here to see the CBS Better Mornings Segment). For more information on prices and where to order (and discount codes) visit our post on Experiential Gifts for the Holidays.
Great American Days: If you don’t have the time or imagination come up with a unique experience, Great American Days has you covered. They’re a one stop shopping location for a variety of experiences. Also a great last minute gift and if someone doesn’t like the experience you’ve picked out – they can choose another one.
- 100+ Free Things to do in Atlanta Book: This Field Trips with Sue book is half price through Dec. 16. At $4.99, it’s a great stocking stuffer.
- Atlanta Braves and Gwinnett Braves Kids Clubs: For the baseball fan, give not only tickets to a game, but some fun swag and special extras like front of the line at kids run the bases or free admission to the bounce houses at the Gwinnett Braves.
- Memberships: I always love getting a membership as a gift. That way I can enjoy the attraction over and over again. If you can’t afford the yearly membership, give children an admission ticket, the parents can exchange them on their visit and upgrade to the membership.
- Show Tickets: In the same vein as a membership, show tickets are another good option. Million Dollar Quartet comes to the Fox Theatre in March. You can order tickets or purchase the Broadway Series. We’ve asked grandparents to buy tickets to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. The circus comes to town in February. We have some great pictures of my parents and the boys sporting their clown noses and it’s a memory that lasts a lifetime. (see the gift guide for a discount code for the Circus)
In our second hour, we took kids on a trip around the world, without breaking the bank (click here to see the CBS Better Mornings Segment). For more information on where to purchase these gifts and discount codes, visit our post on Holiday Gift Guide: What to Get Kids for Christmas.
- Little Passports: Little Passports follows characters Sam and Sofia around the world through monthly packages that include a passport, field guide, stickers and activity sheets. There is an international and domestic edition available. (discount available)
- Highlights: Highlights magazine has two subscription based travel packages, Top Secret Adventures and Explore America. Each has puzzle books to help solve a mystery.
- Wonder Box: Wonder Box is for younger kids and is craft based. Buy one box or a series. There are lots of different activities for hours of fun.
- Master Kitz: Master Kitz lets kids recreate famous paintings with their own twist, a perfect compliment to a trip to an art museum.
