What to Buy a Kid with Everything

Don’t know what to get a child that has every toy, electronic, sneaker ever made? Give them the gift of skate.

Whether it is a pair of skates, new laces, or even a gift certificate for them to go with their friends, it will be a gift they haven’t gotten before. With a new gadget appearing every six months, it is hard for us and our wallets to keep up. Giving an experience where memories are formed and time is shared lasts much longer than an iPod or Nintendo. Gifting an experience to enjoy rather than a material item will strengthen and nurture your relationship with the kid on your gift list.

An experience does not have to cost more than the material gift you were going to purchase. “You can put the money you would have spent on a material item toward an experience they will be able enjoy,”Dr. Timothy Bono, professor of psychological and brain sciences at Washington University in St. Louis says. “Regardless of how much it costs, you’re still offering them something to look forward to, an opportunity to spend time with other people, and memories they’ll look back on for years to come.”

Rollerland has tons of experiences to enjoy as a family. We will be open for Christmas Break Skate on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday after Christmas from 12-5 pm. We’re also hosting ‘Skate with Santa’ from 1-4 pm on December 23rd. We will be having our Wacky Wednesdays on December 26th to help skate off that Christmas Roast Beast.¬†For our New Years Celebration, we will be kicking off the party on December 31st for our Almost New Year’s Party, and we’ll be open on New Year’s Day. Check our calendar for up-to-date events, times, and details.

Enjoy the holiday break with your family doing something fun. Thank you for another wonderful year!
