I love giving great gifts but sometimes it’s tricky finding something really great that isn’t just more stuff, you know? I’m going to share with your my best gift giving idea for adults and kids a like: experience gifts. I love giving the gift of time and memories and one of my all time favorites ways to do this is Cirque du Solei tickets. And I have a tip on how to save big time on the tickets.
Both my in-laws and parents have birthdays within a few weeks of each other so last birthday we gave them along with my uncle and all the grand kids Cirque du Solei tickets. It was SO fun to take all of them together. I have given my parents and hubby Cirque tickets multiple times in the past for various presents but this was the first time we got the kids and my hubby family in on the the fun and I was so happy we did. Teddy was 4 at the time and we had a 70 year old too and it was great for everyone.
Most people don’t realize that you do not have to go to Las Vegas to see one of the famous Cirque du Solei shows. Sure you can catch them there but they do travel and that’s where you’re going to get your most bang for your buck and I might add maybe even a better viewing experience.
I’m still shocked that so many of my Salt Lake City friends don’t realize that we are lucky enough to get Cirque shows come through a few times a year and they are always a great price. When you compare them to what you would pay in Vegas it’s a steal. So much so that after our first one I vowed to go to every single show that came through. I even when when I was super pregnant with Teddy and have fond memories of him flipping and flopping to the music.
I’m crazy excited about the newest show Crystal: A Breakthrough Ice Experience coming through which is their first ever ice performance. Ummm yesssss please. Did you watch the video!? Looks fantastic right?! They are performing at the West Valley City’s Maverick Center which is my favorite since it’s so accessible and unlike the giant venues in Vegas, every single seat is AWESOME. Even the cheapest ones are better than some of the pricier sections in Vegas and they are a fraction of the cost.
