Every holiday season I'm stumped on what to give the people I love most. Especially when it comes to my husband. He makes a list but it's generally things like a head lamp or a new bike rod. Most of these things I don't know much about, and while he's thrilled, they seem unexciting. I want to really give him something he'll love.
A memory. Something that we can do together. Get us up and out of the house. Enter Groupon . While it is everyone's all time favorite deal site, they have experiences that you can purchase, at a discount that make the absolute perfect gift.
This year, Michael and I decided for the first time, to have a new Thanksgiving tradition. We went to Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico with the dogs in tow. I was so excited to be in a completely different place and have Thanksgiving with just the four of us.
But there was a problem. I had no idea where to stay. Since we were celebrating our 10 year dating anniversary, I wanted to really wow him. I looked online for hours and hours and then, finally, looked at Groupon Getaways. Then I found it. The perfect hotel for our Santa Fe stay. Close to the shops, but dar enough away from the hustle and bustle. The Lodge at Santa Fe is beautiful, with traditional New Mexico flair. Plus, I was getting a discount through Groupon and I know and I could trust a hotel that they picked.
I wanted a way to surprise Michael. Every year, for the past 10 years, I make a scrapbook, commeorating the past year. It might sound a little nerdy, but I really like putting it together as a way to remember everything. So for the last page, I added a little something special:
He was shocked to see the Groupon tucked into the last page of the scrapbook.
We traveled to Taos and ended our little anniversary trip in Santa Fe. Through Groupon Getaways, I booked the Lodge at Santa Fe. It looked like a great choice, but I was blown away when we arrived!
Beautifully designed with Southwestern inspired decor, pet friendly, and a shuttle service that takes you straight the Plaza in downtown Santa Fe (a big perk since we literally couldn't find any parking.) Plenty of room for the dogs and us, AND a free bottle of wine.
With Groupon Getaway, I had the peace of mind that I could go and explore and that everything was safe and sound (including the pups) at the hotel.
It's hard to really wow someone with a gift but I think I nailed it, thanks to Groupon . There are so many options of things you can do in your city, or even if you want to Get Away!
