I was drooling over some of the beautiful dresses for my daughter at Hanna Andersson but didn’t want to spend that kind of money on kids’ clothes.

Rather than spending money on one more toy for your child, consider giving them a gift that extends the fun of Christmas for a whole year! My favorite gifts are memberships to local attractions like museums, the zoo and even theme parks.
I know that the cost of admissions often discourages parents, and I can understand. If I had to pay for parking and admission every time, I’d hesitate before taking my son to a museum or zoo. He can enjoy an excursion for about two to three hours before it’s time to go home, and that would be an expensive two hours. So I invest in museum and zoo memberships for Christmas and birthday gifts. It’s a great way to support your local community, and your child will benefit far more from these memberships than from extra toys.
