Giveaway – what experience would you cherish most?
|What experience would you choose?|
This Christmas I was astounded at how many presents the children received. We were relatively conservative I think, buying them one or two main presents each but when you add in presents from relatives and friends there was a mountain of boxes under the tree. Once 2014 had popped it’s head around the door and the dust had settled on our festivities, the paper was in the recycle bin and the presents tidied away in the playroom, I started thinking about what makes Christmas special. When you’re a child presents are the thing. Writing a list, anticipating the big day, ripping open the gifts and playing with them all day. But if you’re anything like me, once you’re an adult you probably buy yourself the things that you want during the year rather than waiting until Christmas. For me Christmas is about getting together with my family and sharing a special meal, it’s about watching the excitement on the kids faces – it’s about the experience of it all. Material possessions come and go, break and get replaced but experiences live on in our memories. Scuba diving, skiing, learning to ride a motorbike and taking off across the Pyrénées to Barcelona are all experiences that I treasure from my pre-parenthood days.
So when Experience Days offered me the chance to give one of you lovely lot the gift of a £50 voucher to put towards an amazing experience for you, or a loved one, to cherish I jumped at the chance. And guess what – this time the giveaway is open to my UK and US readers – woo hoo!
