Spending time with a loved one can be such a meaningful gift and the memories can last a lifetime. Take a trip to the beach, visit the Aquarium or the NC Zoo, walk through the NC Museum of Art, or sightsee at one of the many state parks. Other ideas include swimming lessons, movie passes, pottery class, or camping.
