Here are some deals I found that might appeal to Twin Cities readers (prices reflect the coupon code HAM20):
Wuollet Bakery: $12 for $30 or $24 for $60 worth of pastries, cupcakes, cookies and assorted bakery items
Wuollet has five Twin Cities locations and their baked goods are soooooooooooo good! I have ordered birthday cakes for my children from Wuollet the past several years and while they are spendy, they are absolutely beautiful and delicious.
Minnesota Landscape Arboretum: $9.60 for admission for two Monday-Friday, $11.20 for admission for two any day (children 12 and under get in free)
Stroll the grounds of the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska and spend some time in the Visitor Center, too. They open “Color Spritis Bright” on Friday with stately live trees, stunning natural decorations, glistening lights, holiday musical entertainment and gift-giving.
Pump It Up: $13.60 for four open-jump sessions
Want to give an experience gift instead of more clutter? Pump It Up has three Twin Cities locations, all of which offer open-jump sessions in which kids can bounce and play on their huge inflatables. My kids love playing here during the winter months.
Paint Nite: $20 for one, $39.20 for two or $79.20 for four – admission to a painting party
Whether you need a date night or a night out with friends, Paint Nite is an opportunity for you to get together and paint (even if you’re not artistically inclined). The instructors break the painting process down step-by-step so you can follow along. These are held at local bars and restaurants – I found 20 events happening in just the next week in the Twin Cities metro area!
