Can you believe it’s December 11 already? That means there’s only 13 days ’til Christmas! If that sends you into a panic, rushing to the mall to fight over parking spaces, please don’t fret and definitely don’t go to the mall. Thanks to LivingSocial, I have hundreds of unique (and discounted!) gift ideas for you!
To say the last year has been busy for my husband and me would be a vast understatement. We moved to another state and became homeowners, adopted two crazy Labradors, I started a new job and last, but certainly not least, we had a baby. Quality time together has become a lot harder to come by so the best gifts we gave each other were experience-based like a weekend in Asheville to celebrate our first anniversary (with William in tow!)
Similarly, for my birthday, Joe gave me two experience gifts. We shared a great afternoon over canvases “painting our pets” with HappyMess, an experience I blogged about here. We now have two Joe and Sally originals hanging in our living room. Joe also gave me tickets for a Food Tour of Durham with Taste Carolina. Husbands take note, a food tour is always a good idea when you’re wife is super pregnant. One of the restaurants on the tour, Pompieri Pizza, is now our favorite pizza place. You can read more about our food tour experience here.
When LivingSocial reached out to me I jumped at the chance to find a unique experience gift to give Joe this Christmas. Under the most popular local deals tab I found it! The Supercar Agility Autocross Experience includes education-based instruction on driving an exotic supercar, 3 laps around the autocross course in a Ferrari 360 Modena or Lamborghini Gallardo and the opportunity to meet fellow supercar enthusiasts. I’m sure it will be a memorable afternoon and what says “you’re a true North Carolinian now Joe” more than a few laps around a race track? I’ll be tagging along with William so he can take some pictures in the driver’s seat of a Lamborghini.
And now for the best part! LivingSocial is giving one lucky reader $100 in LivingSocial Deal Bucks that he or she can use to gift a new experience to someone they care about this year. The choices are endless and there’s something for everyone on your list, from a limo ride tour of the best holiday lights to cooking lessons to a snowy winter retreat. Most LivingSocial deals can be gifted – just look for the gift icon. Whether you want to give the gift immediately or schedule it for a future date, the printable gift vouchers and digital delivery options make wrapping a cinch.
If you’re a local reader in Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill some great gifts available now on LivingSocial include tickets to a Duke Women’s basketball game, a Trail Ride, Kids’ Pony Ride, or Horseback Riding Lessons at Black Creek Hill Farms or a Brewery Tour of Fortnight Brewing Company. You can find all these and more here.
