Aqua-Tots Springboro & Aqua-Tots Beavercreek

At Aqua-Tots Beavercreek & Aqua-Tots Springboro, children of all abilities from 4 months – 12 years old become safe and confident swimmers in their indoor, 90-degree pool. This holiday season, give the special child in your life the gift of swim lessons! Their Holiday Swim Bundles provide your family peace of mind for the years of water adventures to come. Reserve yours today by calling Aqua-Tots Beavercreek – 937-200-1120 or Aqua-Tots Springboro – 937-886-4321.

You don’t need to be a mind reader to give a gift that can last well past the holiday season – the gift of an experience.

There are many options when you give the gift of an experience. Why not give a gift of a membership to an attraction, like an amusement park or zoo? You can give the gift of a night away (what mom wouldn’t like that?!) What about the gift of a DIY activity with girlfriends?

By giving the gift of an experience, you’re providing that special person in your life a future memory for them to create – one that you can join in with them or one that you want them to experience on their own. Either way, you’re providing future joy that is too big to be wrapped up.

In Greater Dayton, there are many “experience” gifting options you can consider:

  1. A night out at a restaurant in the Oregon District
  2. A Pedal & Party with Pedal Wagon
  3. A membership to the Boonshoft Museum
  4. A paint-and-sip class 
  5. A class at AR Workshop
  6. A trip to a local spa
  7. A cooking class at Dorothy Lane Market
  8. Swim lessons at a local swim school (like Aqua-Tots Beavercreek or Springboro!)
  9. Passes to an indoor play place
  10. Private lessons to help the child further their success in sports or music
  11. You could adopt an animal, such as sponsoring a raptor at Glen Haven Nature Preserve, and then visit Glen Helen 
  12. You could donate to your favorite local charity, and then visit there and volunteer 
  13. You can buy a gift card at a local shop, and then your special person will get to shop there in the future
  14. You can get your DMC swag and help support local businesses!

Especially in a year where we haven’t been able to participate in many experiences, by gifting an experience, you’re giving hope that the new year will bring the opportunity to enjoy experiences again.
