As you’re starting your holiday shopping (if you’re almost done, I don’t want to hear it), I have an awesome gift idea and a way to save on it, too.
Since Jeffrey was born, we’ve had a membership to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Membership to the Zoo through the Cleveland Zoological Society is great because it allows you to experience the Zoo as much as you want, at your own pace.
You also get access to Zoo special events, including Boo at the Zoo, Twilight at the Zoo, and the Zoo’s camps for kids over winter break and summer.
Plus, you’ll not only be opening the door to amazing experiences, you’ll also be helping the Zoo’s efforts in conservation, research, and education. A portion of every Zoo membership goes directly to this mission.
More and more, I find giving the gift of experience is an awesome present that keeps on giving throughout the year. And with a Zoo membership, it’s easy and fun to find something to add on for the little ones to open, like a cute stuffed animal that clues them in to the wild animals they’ll get to experience.
If you’re ready to give the gift of Cleveland Zoological Society membership, to yourself or someone else (I don’t judge buying presents for yourself), you can save 15% on a new membership by using code WHYCLE at checkout.
There are lots of membership options, from those perfect for a couple to those great for a big family. While you’re at it, check out the Cleveland Zoological Society holiday shopping guide for even more inspiration. And, since it’s #GivingTuesday, check out the Give for Gorillas campaign, with the goal of raising $5,000 for gorilla conservation.
I hope this helps check an item (or two) off your gift-giving list this season!
***Disclosure: I was asked by the Cleveland Zoological Society to help promote zoo membership. In exchange, I received a complimentary membership renewal for myself, as well as the discount code for readers. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
