Looking for a unique holiday gift idea for a Dallas resident? Don’t limit your search to things that you can buy at the mall. One of the hottest trends in holiday gifting this year is making a present of an experience. Here are some great suggestions of things you can do in Dallas that will make a memories for you and the recipient.
TopGolf – If you’ve ever seen a movie in which the actors are knocking balls from a multi-tiered, open-walled structure that looks nothing like a traditional driving range, that’s TopGolf. An unusual twist on the traditional sport, players compete in contests to see who can get closest to the tee. No walking around or lugging your clubs with you required, and food and beverage service is provided.
Go roller skating – If you haven’t laced up a pair of skates and grooved to the music in awhile, why not? White Rock Skate Center is a great venue for reliving your junior high years. This is the most affordable entertainment in town. Go out for burgers and shakes afterwards.
Roller derby season passes – Like the skating idea but would rather watch some derby girls slug it out around the rink? How about a 2012 season pass to the Assassination City Roller Derby Team? Dallas’ only flat track women’s roller derby league is getting ready for another year of fishnets and hard knocks.
Tickets to the Rangers or Mavericks – Though they didn’t win the World Series, the Rangers will be back for another great season of baseball in 2012. If you are buying for a sports fan, tickets to a game or two will be the perfect present. Maybe your recipient is more of a basketball person, the Mavericks will be playing again starting on Christmas Day!
The sound of music – Dallas concerts cover everything from the soothing sounds of the symphony to country shows to hard rock n’ roll. Find some tickets to a great show to stuff in someone’s stocking this holiday.
