Ditch the Toys! Gift Your Kids with New Experiences {Giveaway} | #giftidea #MedievalTimes #giveaway

Who’s already Christmas shopping? I am and this year I’m doing things differently. Every year my family asks what they can get for the kids and I’m always at a loss because we usually have everything covered. This year I have a new idea! It’s not always about tangible gifts. I’m going to tell the family to ditch the toys and gift the kids with new experiences. Outings and experiences are more meaningful and won’t end up in the unused toy pile.

If this sounds like something you’d like to incorporate this holiday (I don’t see why you wouldn’t want to), let me give you an idea to get that list going. One of the experiences my whole family enjoyed earlier in the year was the new show at Medieval Times Lyndhurst Castle (New Jersey).

The entertainment. The costumes. The Queen (let’s not forget who rules the roost these days). The feast. Oh, the feast! The fun. The family. The whole Medieval Times experience is amazing. And it just so happens that I have an EXCLUSIVE discount just for my readers because I love you guys.

Here are all the deets:

  • Exclusive price: $36.95* for adults and $30.95* for kids (*plus tax and processing). That’s a savings of up to $26 per person! General admission is normally $62.95 for adults and $36.95 for kids.
  • Use promo code NJBlog36 at checkout (valid at the Lyndhurst Castle only).
  • Two Hour Tournament • Four Course Feast • Magnificent Pure Spanish Horses • Authentic Sword Fights and Jousting

If you’re in the New Jersey area, I highly recommend heading to Lyndhurst Castle. Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned veteran, Medieval Times is always a good time and an experience the whole family will enjoy.

  1. I love the Renn Faire!!! I haven’t been there with my son in a couple years but it is a family favorite. I would love to take him to medieval times.
