Disclosure: The kids and I have been invited to ring in the New Year with Knott's thanks to Gigasavvy
I'm a big believer of giving gifts of activities over the holiday season. We have so much stuff already, that I would rather the kids have experiences. For years I've given the gift of theme parks ... or have had the grandparents band together to contribute to annual passes. The kids get an entire year of fun out of their gift instead of a day or two, and then the item being donated or broken.
This year give the gift of Knott's Berry Farm. Do it now, and then start the year off just right by ring in 2016 with the Knott's Berry Farm New Year celebrations. Regular passes for 2016 start from $13.50 (over 6 easy payments).
