Delight someone on your list with memories

Give the Gift of Hershey Experiences

A growing trend for holiday gift giving now focuses on sharing experiences versus material goods. Hershey is the perfect destination for memory making!

As the parent of two young children, I often look around our house and see it cluttered with too much STUFF.  Toys, books, stuffed animals, everywhere! They were all lovingly given to my children but half the time, they lay unused and unnoticed in a toy box (or on the living floor!)

This Christmas, I purposefully decided to focus on giving the gift of experience, making memories that my children will cherish long after they outgrow superheroes or dolls.

Do you know someone who might want a spa day, a private zoo encounter or a night out? Delight someone on your Christmas list with a truly unique and memorable experience!

Growing up, my family always got Hersheypark passes for Christmas and more than 30 years later, it's the best gift for my kids! 2019 Season Pass holders can visit as often as they’d like throughout the year, with free parking, early access and a great discount on food and retail. Enjoy Springtime In The Park, Hersheypark In The Dark, Hersheypark Christmas Candylane, and unlimited access to Hersheypark all Summer long, with payment plans available. Plus, get a free ticket when you buy by December 31!

Who doesn't love a spa day? Give the gift of rich, chocolate-filled relaxation this winter. We offer various spa packages at both The Spa At The Hotel Hershey and MeltSpa by Hershey and a great gift card offer through Dec. 24.

Did you know ZooAmerica is open year-round for adventures, discovery, learning, and more? A ZooAmerica annual pass is an incredible value and special behind the scenes tours allow animal fans  to feed the otters and bears, touch a reptile, and hold a bird of prey.
