Although Christmas is just a few days away, it’s not too late to grab a few last-minute gifts. Here are some inexpensive gifts you can have under the tree by Dec. 25.
Being a museum member at the Mainers’ Museum definitely has its perks. The $40 year-long individual membership package includes unlimited visits, members-only benefits and discounts on museum features such as 3D movies, dining and shopping. It also includes one general admission guest pass so you don’t have to go alone. Those who purchase a membership as a gift through Dec. 31 will receive a free ornament. Memberships can be selected and purchased as gifts at the museum or online. Other local museums, including the Virginia Living Museum and Hampton History Museum, also offer annual memberships packages. More info: marinersmuseum.org/membership or 757-591-7715.
