All good parents naturally want what’s best for their kids, and will go to great lengths to help them thrive in life, and to develop the values and skills that help them to be their best selves.

But all families also inevitably cherish special moments and occasions spent together, for their own sake. Times of laughter, new experiences, and more.

Whether in the context of family vacations, birthdays, the arrival of new pets, or any number of other things, here are a few tips and suggestions that can potentially help you to create more memorable occasions with and for your family.

Look for events and settings that offer new experiences and perspectives

New experiences and new environments almost always tend to be more memorable, by virtue of the very fact that they are new and so don’t end up blurring together with the ordinary routines and experiences of everyday life.

Looking for events and settings that offer new experiences and perspectives can involve anything ranging from visiting a new locale on vacation, to riding a cable car together as a family, or simply playing a new board game.

In either case, new settings, new experiences, and new perspectives have the potential to be some of the most memorable for a range of different reasons, and in a range of different ways.

Plan special occasions in advance and make sure they stand out from the norm in various ways

One of the most obvious and significant ways of helping to create memorable and uplifting occasions for your family, is to plan special occasions out properly, in advance, to ensure that they stand out from the norm in a range of different ways.

When it comes to things like birthday parties, for example, leaving the planning to the last moment and only opting for a relatively minor change from the everyday routine — such as buying a cake and watching a film at home — is unlikely to lead to a highly memorable experience.

On the other hand, planning the party at a special venue and buying special clothes for the event such as party dresses for girls, will be quite memorable by comparison.

Planning is really at the heart of a lot of what it takes to properly arrange for a memorable event.

Remove common everyday distractions during special occasions

Today, we are all more distracted than ever before by and large — with many of us finding it difficult to not stare at our smartphones while sitting at the dinner table with our loved ones.

Ultimately, simply removing some of the most common sources of everyday distraction from the environment where you and your family are spending time, can help to create more memorable experiences.

This is particularly the case when it comes to things like family outings, vacations, trips to restaurants, and more — but it applies more generally as a whole.

Removing obstacles that get in the way of you or your partner or kids being fully immersed in an experience, is one of the best ways of crafting more memorable and uplifting experiences as a whole.
