>Have y’all heard of Xperience Days? It is a neat website full of gifts that are lessons, classes or unique adventure experiences available in several major cities. Some are crazy expensive. For example, if you want to experience the thrill of being a air combat fighter, you can shell out $2000+. Crazy!! But there are a lot of very reasonable ideas as well. You can take an introductory flying class for just over $100. I did this in college and wow, that was a memory! You can also check your local county recreation center for fun classes. One of the girls’ presents will be to take their first ballet or gymnastics class. I can’t wait to see them in their little pink leotards! Or maybe a cooking class for two? What a fun date that would be! If you have a Whole Foods in your area, they offer culinary classes for a reasonable price. Last year, I gave my dad the gift of a photography class. We took it together and that was half the fun to create a memory and learn a few things too! There is also a wine tasting class, stock car race, and biplane rides to name a few of the Atlanta possibilities. Lots of ideas for the guy in your life. Let me know if anyone gets adventurous! I’d love to hear! :)

>More than ANY gift under the tree, my prized present is one of quality time. Christmas morning ends very quickly, but how precious to make a tradition with your children, family and friends to have a special gift to come. On the 5th Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…. Quality Time Coupons!
Coupons have always been a bit of a tradition in my family and I plan to continue that fun with my little ladies. My husband has a date or quality time outing with one of the big girls almost every Saturday morning. With having twins, we work very hard to be sure they have time alone since their lives are ALWAYS together!! It’s now my turn to get in on the fun and this Christmas, they will each be receiving a special coupon for a special date with me! :)
So think about a gift of time…. a father-son camping weekend, a dinner and movie with your BFF, a much needed getaway with your hubbie! Or maybe your gift is a service. Last year for Christmas, my dad built me an incredible wall unit bookcase with his wood working talents. So many possibilities! Make it extra cute with a printable coupon of your choice for $5. Choose your colors, wording and size. An 8×10 can be wrapped and given as a gift or a small 4×6 would fit perfectly in your stocking. Any invitation or enclosure style is also available as a coupon. To place your order, email firstname.lastname@example.org
So on the 4th Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… printable personalized flat notes and notepads! The PDF flat note is $8 and is available in a large variety of styles and colors. To see more flat note options, click on “flat notecards” in the bottom right column. You can also see a couple styles HERE. Print a few for your gift and give the file as well for future use. The file can also be printed as a notepad. Just ask your professional print shop. Notepads are always cute and very useful too! :)
