Thank you to Goldfish Swim School for their partnership. While I received complimentary swim lessons to facilitate this post, all opinions are 100% my own.
Whenever someone asks what they can get my daughter for Christmas, my response is always “Oh gosh, I don’t know. Books are always good.” And yes, books are great! She loves books, I love books, they don’t take over every inch of my house or have a million pieces to scatter everywhere to step on and break. But in this age of stuff, stuff, stuff, maybe the best gift you receive isn’t something you can put on a shelf and play with every once in a while.
Have you ever considered giving the gift of experience? I love this idea. There are so many things I want for my daughter to experience like gymnastic classes or dance classes or even a trip to see a Disney on Ice show. But sometimes those things just aren’t in our budget. Receiving these as gifts are a win for everyone. I value experiences like these so much more than any “thing” you could ever buy. And this is what I hope to teach my daughter as she grows.
Maybe this holiday season you want to give a gift that keeps on giving? Something fun, something that will last, something that could literally be a life saver? You might consider giving the gift of water safety and swimming skills that will last a lifetime.
If you’ve been following along, you know E recently started swim lessons at Goldfish Swim School. She absolutely loves them and has made so much progress in such a short time. During each lesson, they not only work on swimming techniques but also water safety skills at all levels. At 18 months old, E is learning to swim back to the wall and climb out of the pool.
It can only take a second for something to go tragically wrong in the water. Giving a child these skills could be the best gift they ever receive! And as a parent, I know this gift is priceless. However, in reality, I am aware the cost of swim lessons are not cheap. So if you have family members who want to give your child the “best gift ever” considering sending them this idea! If they are going to be spending money on toys and toys and more toys, let them know how much more valuable this experience can be.
