Christmas week is finally here! I don’t know if it’s because Thanksgiving was late this year, or if it’s because we all tend to pack in as many holiday events as possible, but it seems as if December has completely flown by, and the big day is almost here. If you’re looking for that last minute gift idea for your child or hubby, we’ve got you covered, and it isn’t another plastic toy, or beard trimmer. More and more families are now leaning towards the gift of an “experience”, but maybe you’re having a hard time thinking of something outside of the typical Zoo membership. Maybe you’re looking for something more unique. Below we’ve listed some of our favorite local experiences, and there is something for everyone on your list to enjoy!

One of our absolute favorite experiences, is taking the kids to see Disney on Ice. The lights, the familiar music, the fun characters, and the impressive skating is something our whole family enjoys. This season, we are excited to share that with one lucky family, who will win a 4-pack of tickets to see the January 23rd or 24th showing at Pechanga Arena.
