The season has come upon us again and like always, we ask each other where the year went. Everybody looks forward to Christmas (well the majority of us), from the build up to Christmas day itself. Probably the one thing we do not look forward to with Christmas is the effort it takes coming up with new great gift ideas for our special ones. Everybody likes to receive a gift, however whether they like it or truly loath it after time they may choose to replace it. That is the downfall of the majority of gifts. Think how much better if would be if you could buy them something a little different, something that they will not leave at the back of the wardrobe or flog on eBay in a few years time? Well an experience day gift is a great way to do that. An experience day gift is a little more unusual, instead of being a present to wear or use or is more of an activity, and a memorable one at that. An experience day gift is almost like receiving two presents. You get the excitement building up to being given your gift on Christmas day, and then you get the added bonus of looking forward towards your activity later in the year.
If your loved one has had a demanding year or has been pulling their teeth out in the run in to Christmas then spoil them with a nice relaxing pamper day. You can choose from facials, massages and mud baths, makeovers and photo shoots or just a full day out at a health spa. You can also spoil the man in your life, as there are so many treatments for men available now days.
Maybe you know someone who is a car fanatic. Treat them to a driving experience such as a Ferrari track day, an off road experience or a crazy rally driving experience. Even if they cannot drive themselves, you can buy them a high-speed passenger ride.
Surprise the outdoor lovers to a ice climbing or abseiling activity day. Alternatively, try a trekking or cycling experience. For the adrenaline seekers out there, buy them a skydiving gift, bungee jumping activity or even a zorbing gift (the new craze involving mimicking a hamster by rolling down hills in a large ball).
An experience day gift even gives you the advantage to treat yourself at the same time, as there are lots of options for two people. Buy the two of you a romantic and memorable dining experience or vineyard and wine tasting day. You can even treat Mum and a friend to a afternoon tea day out at one of the country's top traditional houses or hotels.
All of the above experiences are often available at a number of locations throughout the UK, so you are not restricted to your local area, nor will you have to head far. We hope some of the above options help you when choosing great gift ideas. If there is too much to choose from then take the easy option and buy one of the many experience gift vouchers that are available. You can buy them to cover several varieties across several price groups. Take some pressure off this Christmas by letting them decide for themselves!
