Lately I’ve been doing some anti-nesting. Meaning, I’ve been trying to get out of the house and be more spontaneous while I can. While it’s always nice to gift material things (there is something special about opening a tangible present) experience gifts can be even more memorable. I’ve created a list of some unique adventures and experiences gift ideas for you, your boo and some for kids too. Many of our picks are local to Philadelphia, but check out these sites to find fun experiences in your own city: Mommypoppins (great for family experiences), Funsherpa or Great American Days (geared more towards adults) or, of course sites like living social.
