Are you tired of giving and receiving the usual gifts when the holidays roll around each year? Whether it’s cashmere sweaters or cologne and perfume, it’s all too easy to play it safe. Another idea is to give an out-of-the-ordinary experience to your girlfriend, friend, or spouse. If you want to show someone how special they are to you this holiday season, why not give them a great day out that they’ll never forget? The best part is – you can come along! Here are five ideas to help you get started.
- Supercar Driving Experience
One of the most popular gift ideas today is the Supercar driving experience. If you shop around, you’ll find plenty of options all across the UK and abroad, so there’s bound to be an experience near your location of choice. With this type of experience, you can take a spin around the race track in the Supercar of your choice, whether it’s a Ferrari, Lamborghini, or rally car.
- Helicopter Lessons
If getting behind the wheel of an Aston Martin just isn’t a big enough thrill, what about flying a helicopter? You could gift that special someone a helicopter flying lesson, which allows them to get up in the air with the help of an expert pilot. Lessons and flights depart from small airports like Blackbushe on the border of Hampshire and Surrey.
- Spa Day for 2
If you’re looking for a way to spoil your wife or girlfriend, take her out for a lavish spa day. These gift experiences usually include a glass of bubbly, a couples’ massage or treatments of your choice, and use of the hotel’s facilities. Take a dip in the swimming pool and treat yourself to lunch, and you’ll both leave feeling quite pampered.
- Vineyard Tour and Wine Tasting
The beauty of this experience is that it comes in a variety of different price options. You could whisk your lucky recipient away to France, or look for a vineyard that’s a bit closer to home. Make a day of it by arranging a picnic or overnight stay after your tour and tasting experience.
- Falconry Experience
Finally, what better gift than the ability to get out into the countryside to get up close and personal with birds of prey? This is the perfect type of quirky gift for that person in your life who already has everything. Take him or her out to handle hawks and eagles in a country setting, and be sure to take plenty of pictures!
