15 Houston Experiences to Gift This Year

My house is legit overrun with “stuff”, y’all. Every year it seems we get more and more toys, and honestly, instead of leading to joy, it just becomes a stress. I’m ready to declutter, and I can imagine that many of you feel the same way. So this year, instead of sending out toy requests with the grandparents or aunts & uncles ask, I’m sending this curated list of experiences! It’s the perfect opportunity to not only explore our great city, but also to spend time with our loved ones doing things we may not usually think of.
