Give the Gift of a Groupon Experience

Sharing is caring!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Groupon Gift Shop. All opinions are 100% mine.

Need gift ideas this holiday season? Holiday shopping can be daunting – it’s never easy to find gifts for everyone on your list, let alone gifts that are unique and special. This year do something a little different that your friends and family will really appreciate – give them experiences. This is the kind of gift that they’ll always remember!

Recently I decided to give my family a fun Groupon exprience. So what more fun than a KristkrindalMarket German Christmas Market Experience.

I surprised the kids by filling their stockings with a treat for each one and the groupon flyer.

You can imagine the excitment when they found out we were going to go to a Christmas Village and see Santa! We were able to attend this past Saturday and it was so much fun for the whole family. For a small price (a nice discount from the actual tickets) we were given entrance and 2 drinks (choice of festive hot wine or German Beer). This event was so much fun for all the Delicious food, activites and festive enviroment led to fun for everyone.

The Market Included a fun ice skating rink.

And of course lots of great German Beer.

There were some great activities for the kids that included making your own wooden gingerbread houses and coloring contest.

The entrance included free amusment rides for the kids.

Pictures with Mr & Mrs. Claus!

These guys had such a blast!

All for a fun experience from Groupon. Thanks to Groupon I found out about this event. This was such a fun time for my whole family. With Groupon you have the ability to give friends and family fun experience for a small price.

To find an experience for each person on your list, is the perfect solution. Whether it’s a couples massages, skydiving, wine tasting, museum passes, or a weekend Getaway, Groupon has so many options for your spouse, your kids, your parents, your friends, and more. And don’t worry that giving an experience isn’t the same as handing someone a neatly wrapped box – come up with some really fun ways to give Groupons that are super easy for anyone to do.

Groupon’s got more than just great gift ideas this season – they’ve also got special giveaways and discounts, so make sure to stop by.

Make your gift giving fun and give your family a fun Groupon Exerience!

    If you want to save money, Groupon is the site to visit!!
    You can save money on just about everything from movies, restaurants, travel, etc.
    I have used it and have been totally satisfied! Sometimes there are restrictions. Make sure you read everything before purchasing!

    I know someone who buys tons of Groupon experiences (restaurant visits, tours, spa treatments) as gifts for friends and family when they visit her from out of town. I thought it was a great idea. My husband, more than once, has given me Groupon gifts (I think I might be getting a massage and yoga class via Groupon for Christmas from him).

    What a fun day for the whole family! Since they didn’t have much for my area it has been awhile since I looked at Groupon. I’m going to go give them a look and hopefully they’ll have something as fun as this 🙂

    I’ve used Groupon several times to try new restaurants. some are a hit and some have been a big miss. I do love finding places I already know are good though.

    We are going to see cirque de soleil as our family Christmas gift. No groupon where we live that I have ever come across.

    I can’t seem to find anything for around here or anything I like. I think I need to explore Groupon a little more.

    this is a great idea! It might be fun to do as the kids get older two, to give them each their own Groupon individually so that they can have an experience as part of their Christmas.
