I remember a few years ago, once the kids were sound asleep, I sat down with a wine in hand & put a Christmas movie on to wrap their Christmas presents. When I saw the sheer amount of gifts I had bought for them over the year (to “put away for Christmas”) I was disgusted with myself. There was an endless amount of STUFF that they didn’t really need, that I knew deep down would get played with for five minutes before being discarded & that I knew would end up in landfill before long.

From that Christmas on, I promised myself I would never just buy STUFF again. Sure, I always make sure there are a few fun gifts for the kids to unwrap, along with anything they might actually need, but EXPERIENCE GIFTS have become the number one Christmas present in our house. We have had some fantastic family days out at places like Bounce Inc, going to a the movies or cruising the River Torrens with BBQ Buoys, which the kids still talk amount. Unlike the poor Barbie who had its head pulled off before we had even sat down for Christmas lunch.

So instead of buying more STUFF this year, give an EXPERIENCE or voucher that will create memories to last a lifetime.  Check out our Adelaide Experiences Gift Guide below!
