I don’t know about you guys, but finding a unique, new Christmas present for the family can be flat out hard. Should I buy mom another set of limited edition frying pans? Will dad be mad if I buy him the same pair of Christmas boxers I got him 3 years in a row? If you find yourself scrambling around trying to find the best Christmas gift, slow down, and read this!
Traveling is the best way to remind ourselves how big and diverse our world truly is, and what better gift to give? Material items fade away and eventually become lost to us, but not travel. Travel brings us new experiences, adventures, and memories that stay with us. And the best part? It doesn’t have to be complicated! Here are a few ways you can give the gift of travel!
You know how this goes guys. Your kids rush to the tree, grab all the presents their small arms can carry, and rip into the gifts. All in 2.7 seconds. While I’m sure we would all love for our kids to be a little more civil during this time, let’s be real. It’ll probably take a few more years. But there is hope! Make present opening double fun by turning it into a game! Let’s say you've planned a trip to Disney with the kids. Instead of simply telling or showing them the tickets, make a scavenger hunt leaving clues throughout the house. The clues could lead them to Mickey Mouse ears with the tickets and a Christmas movie! Maybe you're taking your kids to a Hawaiian Resort. Make a seashell trail or some ocean riddles cluing them in on the excitement of swimming with dolphins. This makes for a fun Christmas project for you, and creatively engaging your kids in a Christmas present they can't just tear into.
Kids aren’t the only ones who will have fun with this. Maybe you're thinking about taking your significant other on that River Cruise in Europe you’ve been dying to go on. Buy a beer stein and a mug that you can fill up with some German goodies and leave the tickets on top for them to find! Thinking about a Caribbean Cruise? Leave your significant other a bathing suit, some snorkel gear, maybe a dinner dress (or tie), and place it on their bed with a little note explaining a few things that you both could do together. Go on the internet for some ideas, and make Christmas something more than just opening material gifts!
The most important thing to remember is that you can still get your loved ones gifts. Giving gifts that are geared toward the vacation such as a passport, travel bags, or even a reservation to a hotel are a great way to give gifts to those that are hard to shop for. When you book your vacation, Faith and Family Travel, not only will you build memories and bond as a family on your trip, but you will know you are getting the best personal service to get you through your family vacation.
