As we close out a year that’s been unlike any other, our gifts ought to be just as unpredictable. Tired of getting different variations of the same thing every year? Shake it up this year with our Experience Gift Guide! We’ve laid out 10 classic holiday gifts, and how to turn them into experiences that go beyond instant gratification. Whether you have a house full of gift-shaking Santa sleuths, or want to “wow” that special someone, these gifts will be sure to surprise and delight everyone on your list.

 FOR THE KIDS


Dolls & Actions Figures
Help them come to life

Playing make believe will never go out of style. Inspire them for their next tea party with an etiquette class. Or visit your local museum to stir their imagination!

Books
Explore new stories all year

There are so many books to choose from, why stop at one? With a book club subscription, every month will feel like Christmas with a new batch of books! Fill up their bookshelf with stories from Little Feminist OurShelves or Little Passport.


The “It” Toy
Family trips are a timeless gift

Furbies, Hatchimals, Red Ryder BB guns…all were fun for a season. Give your kids a gift that will stand the test of time with a trip to Jellystone Park™! The gift of time spent by the pond will keep the joy alive all summer. Bring your RV or tent, or book one of our cabins and stay for a week of fun. Make lasting memories with attractions like our lazer tag, gem mining, jumping pillow and more!


Stuffed Animal
Give them the real deal

The gift of staying at Jellystone Park™ wouldn’t be complete without Yogi Bear™ and his pals!  Add a personal Bear Visit to your stay and keep your eyes open for bear sightings throughout the park!  A trip to the local zoo will also ensure the little (or big!) explorers on your list get their fill of animal interactions.


Games
Keep the games, skip the “bored”

Already have a road trip planned for your family? Skip the repetitive board games and opt for a car game like Auto-Bingo or Table Talks. Or equip them to become the ultimate explorer with an adventure kit.  Enjoy a variety of planned activities and games, including Candy Bar Bingo when you book a stay at Jellystone Park™.  The next time you have a long day of driving or hiking ahead of you, you’ll be glad you passed on Chutes and Ladders.

FOR THE GROWN UPS


Socks
A pair with purpose

Somehow these always end up under the tree. Give your socks a twist by making them hiking socks and pair them with a subscription to AllTrails or a National Parks Pass. Those socks will be put to good use in no time.


Candles
Skip the burn out

Nothing is quite as relaxing as being wrapped in a blanket with a good candle burning. Except maybe relaxing next to a campfire! For those who love a self-care moment, time spent outdoors is a priceless gift and the perfect retreat.

Jewelry
Trade sparkle for sunsets and snuggles

Every kiss begins with – well, you know the rest. If you want to spark a little romance this year, opt for a romantic weekend getaway and book a trip in one of our cabins!

Cookbook
Bring “farm to table” home

Whipping up a meal from scratch is something to be proud of. Whipping up a meal from scratch with ingredients you’ve planted yourself? Now that’s something to brag about. For the ambitious cook in your life, try out an indoor gardening kit!


Wine and Spirits
Introduce a new favorite

Know a wine connoisseur or whiskey enthusiast? Excite their palate with a wine-tasting trip, tour of a distillery or craft beer monthly subscription.

Don’t worry about keeping the gift receipt this year, these experiences won’t need returning.  Create lasting memories and family traditions with the gift of experience this holiday season!
