Sharing an experience with someone is such a special gift, and something I have given a lot of thought to as I plan my holiday gift giving this year. I can’t think of a better way to spend the holiday season than having some girl time with my granddaughters. Both girls have both been studying hard and doing well in school, so I decided to treat them to an afternoon of pampering. Thanks to a Groupon local deal I found for manis and pedis, I was able to do it on a budget I am comfortable with.
To let them know what I had planned, I put together a small gift basket with an assortment of nail polish in festive holiday colors, and a few items to help keep their nails looking great. Along with the gift basket, I included an envelope containing our printed Groupon vouchers for manis and pedis. I wish I had captured the excitement on their faces to share with you.
I might not share their taste in music or movies, but getting pampered is something we can agree on.
It was such a special treat to get manicures and pedicures, and spend some quality time together. Both Becca and Maddie chose blue nail polish, and each had a snowflake painted onto one nail.
These kids are growing up way to fast. I had better plan more afternoons like this before they no longer have time for grandma. The girls don’t know it yet, but I have another afternoon of pampering scheduled during winter break. I found some more amazing Groupon local deals to help us to get glammed up for the holidays.
Why give a gift that is going to sit around and collect dust after the holidays? Give the gift of experiences this holiday season!
Is there someone on your list who would enjoy an experience gift like this?

Looks like you both had fun getting your nails dolled up for the holidays! The snowflake nail art is a fun idea! 🙂
Girls never outgrow their granmdas. 🙂 I think it’s a great way to use groupon though!

I need a pedicure. I need a pedicure bad. I didn’t think to look on Groupon for it though. SO thanks for the idea.
What a nice treat! I love Groupon for the affordability. I never feel bad about treating myself.
