As my three children have grown bigger, their Christmas wish lists have grown shorter. Rather than asking for toys and gadgets, my kids began requesting practical items like clothes and experiences such as theme park tickets. Given that toys break, become discarded or collect dust, experiences become treasured moments in time. Experiences truly are gifts that keep giving.
Even when grandparents and family members ask what to give my kids, I shrug my shoulders. They really don’t want things. It’s so difficult to explain non-traditional gifts to grandparents. They seem to enjoy wrapping presents and seeing the joy on a child’s face as a toy is revealed.
Sure, that is a lovely moment in time, but if grandparents could witness the joy on my kids’ faces as they experience a roller coaster, no toy can measure up to that.
As my sixteen year old finishes her first semester in tenth grade, Allana really isn’t thinking about things other than art supplies and sketchbooks. In fact, she is focused on her future and the adventure that lies ahead. And given her age, she also understands the financial burden of a higher education.
At a time when so much in the world is uncertain, Florida Prepaid Saving Plans are a way to ensure a child’s financial security – guaranteed and secure. Florida Prepaid aims to less the financial burden and reassure families this holiday season as they make purchases be it a gift or the gift of education with Florida Prepaid.
Florida Prepaid 1-Year Florida University Plan is the perfect present this holiday.
During the holiday season the 1- Year Florida University Plan is the newest offering a month and makes a great gift starting at under $50 a month. This particular plan is an affordable way to save for State University credit hours. You can purchase one year, or 30 credit hours, at a time according to your budget and timeline, without feeling the pressure of having to buy all four years at once.
The plan is also my favorite because allows multiple purchasers to buy a plan for the same child. So when multiple grandparents and family members ask what to give your kids this holiday, they can team up with other family members to help pay for your child’s higher education. For example, let Grandma and Grandpa buy one year and you purchase another. A child can have up to four 1-Year Florida University Plans.
Right now during the holiday season, save $25 off the application fee with promo code DENISE1718. Filling out an application only takes about 10-15 minutes and totally worth the time. Multitask and manage your time by filling the application while waiting in carline at your kid’s school, at the doctor’s office or at the salon.
