Once again, we are in the midst of the season of giving and it is important to keep in mind that “presents don't have to equal stuff. This year, try giving the ultimate eco gift of an experience" advises Healthy Child World.

"Experiential gifts create memories that last forever. And they can take virtually any form and fit any budget.” While the article “4 Steps To Giving Nontoxic, Experiential Gifts” is geared toward finding gifts for children, the information is valuable in finding a unique gift for that special someone of any age. The first step:

"Pick an experience coveted by your giftee.

It can be one they've dreamed of or something you've come up with that you know they'll love — a trip to a special museum…”

What’s even better than a trip to a special museum? A NARM level membership that opens doors to over 1,000 cultural institutions! You can even find exhibitions that may be of interest and plan an adventure before you wrap it! ArtGeek has a wealth of exhibition information for any traveler and lists if the institution is a NARM member right on the museum page. It works just like the NARM website! Type in the city you plan on visiting and you will find a list of current and upcoming exhibitions.

Safe travels to all of our wonderful members, friends and families. Wishing you a wonderful holidays and an adventure filled New Year!

Virginia Phillippi

Executive Director
