When I was tucking her in last she didn’t want me to leave so I told her, “I have to go, I’m working on a gift idea blog post.” She said, “Oh what is it?!”
“Astros Buddies Club“
Her eyes lit up and she said, “Oh! Can we get that again?!”
I said, “I don’t know, remember Santa gave that to you. I hope he gives it again!”
And then she just kinda looked at me curious and hopeful. She’s ten and she’s on to us but after I broke her heart when she asked me to tell her the truth about our Elf On The Shelf, my lips are now sealed about Santa!
Anyway, I’m recommending the Astros Buddies Kids Club as a repeat gift idea for kids because we loved it so much Santa will be giving it to ours again this year. I don’t think there’s a better time to give a membership to a kiddo in or around Houston.
My son said the thing he liked best about the buddies club was “Being on the field at the Baseball Clinic!” (I’m pretty sure he said that because a month before the clinic we were at Minute Maid Park for his birthday party and were told not touch the grass, not to even look at it! Ha!) He also told me to recommend the birthday party, too and I said, “Will do!” (email firstname.lastname@example.org for parties because I can’t find any info on it, I hope it’s still available!)
This is the current gear included with membership for the 2018 season. The membership also includes tickets and the opportunity to be selected (this takes a little planning and quick response to registration emails) for exclusive events.
- Player Autograph Sessions
- Kids Run The Bases
- Buddies Batting Practice Viewing
- Kids Take The Field
- Buddies Batting Clinic
There’s also a badge included, I think it feels VIP to my kiddos when they wear it. 😉 It gets them these benefits:
- One-time 15% discount at the Astros Team Store
- Access to the Buddies Line for Kids Run the Bases every Sunday afternoon home game, before the general public
My favorite part of the club is how it has made my kids feel like a part of the team, a sense of belonging. So much so that “WE” won the World Series. Go Stros! The Astros Buddies Kids Club is $25 and for kids 12 and under. It’s the experience gift that keeps on giving! ORDER BY TOMORROW DEC. 8th FOR CHRISTMAS DELIVERY!
