Unique Gifts for the Holidays

Part IV of V

With school calendars coming to an end in 2018, it is time to start looking for ways to occupy the time slot from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. normally occupied by science projects, reading assignments and math. In this 4th edition of Unique Gifts for the Holidays, we explore the unique entertainment packages in and around Denver that families can participate in during Winter Break.

Blossom of Lights

Undoubtedly, one of the most festive aspects of the holidays are the lights. Providing a warmth and glow that only come around once a year, light festivals and displays are now commonplace across the nation. One particular display is as breathtaking as advertised, however, that being the Blossom of Lights at the Denver Botanic Gardens.

A regular sell out during the holiday season, Blossom of Lights has been a signature event for the gardens located at 1007 York Street in Denver for over three decades. As with any major, season event, this year’s Blossom of Lights promises to be bigger and more expansive than ever with fan-favorite displays as well as new features.

With Blossom of Lights being the type of event that attracts visitors from around the Centennial State and beyond, finding tickets can be difficult. Some weekend dates have already sold out and Winter Break dates are going fast as well.

The event runs through January 1 and tickets can be purchased in advance at

Santa’s Village at Chatfield Farms

For suburbanites not looking to make the trek to Denver - and with modern traffic the trip downtown has been upgraded to a trek - Santa’s Village at Chatfield Farms provides an optimal solution.

Also thrown together by the minds of Denver Botanic Gardens’ Blossom of Lights, Santa’s Village at Chatfield Farms features a more homely display as the farm is transformed into a village featuring reindeer, lights, hayrides, vendors and, of course, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.

Unique holiday gifts abound at Santa’s Workshop and kids can make their own gifts while doing crafts with Mrs. Claus.

Hours for Santa’s Village are from 4:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. and the village comes to life every weekend up to December 23rd.

Holiday Lights Mini Golf

Looking at lights is one thing, but how about mixing those thousand of twinkling lights with a game of mini golf? That is precisely what Adventure Golf and Raceway has done with its Holiday Lights Mini Golf by taking their 54 holes of miniature golf and sprucing them up for the holidays. Woody the giant talking tree, the erupting volcano and the temple god have all been colorfully decorated for the holidays.

To add to the spirit of the season, Adventure Golf and Raceway has also added hot chocolate, s’mores and, well, spirits to keep patrons warm while they’re swinging through the sparkling scenery.

Starting December 14 Holiday Lights Mini Golf will be open everyday through January 6th from 5:30pm to 9:00pm. Tickets are just $10.00 for adults and $8.00 for children and seniors for unlimited mini golf.

Krampus A Haunted Christmas, Chapter 2: Jack Frost

The holidays are most certainly about caring and sharing, but there are those kids who just like to have the wits scared out of them. For those thrill seekers, the creators of the award-winning 13th Floor have once again come together to provide some holiday chills.

Coming off the successful Krampus: A Haunted Christmas, this year’s second chapter features a story line around the terrifying Krampus and the mischievous Jack Frost.

The second night of the two-night affair is this Saturday and tickets are going fast at
