With a new year upon us, we all tend to think about what we want to achieve for the coming year. What our career, health, lifestyle and family goals are. One of the things I always try to keep in mind when it comes to my family goals is a resolve to Buy Less and Do More.
You see, when I look back on my childhood growing up in Australia most of my memories are filled with things we did as a family rather than things we had. Sure, I loved getting a hula-hoop that smelled like bubble gum one Christmas but my most cherished memories of childhood are the games I would play with my sisters or the driving holidays we would take as a family.
I'd imagine you also have memories that center more around things you did rather than things you had. Cherished memories that are about the people who were with or the new things you experienced.
Which is why when it comes to gift giving, I tend to err on giving my friends and family experiences rather than things. Whether it's dinners out, challenging them to the latest Escape Room, a first-class movie experience, or a Cooking Class, it's about giving them memories they will talk about for years and years.
It's one of the reasons WonderTent Parties came to be. To give friends and families experiences they'll never forget.
Whether it's hosting a GlampOut Girls Night or treating your kids to a SleepOver like no other, we strive to create spaces where bonds are made and memories are created. We know that these are the experiences that last. These are the ones your child and their friends will look back on for years to come. We know these are the ones that will have your squad roaring in hysterics as you recount the stories of "that night" for the 100th time. We know these are the "Remember when..." moments. It's why we work to make each WonderTent Parties event so unforgettable.
So, whether it's a driving holiday, or a hike up to the Hollywood sign, a day at Disneyland, a special Sleep Over, or baking cupcakes together, strive to do more experiences with your kids, your family, and friends. Big or small, these will be the memories that last. The time spent together that will stay with them long after the moment passes.
