Christmas is sneaking up on us and will once again be here before we know it, so with just under five weeks to go – we cast an eye back over last year’s best selling gift experiences to help inspire some excitement into your present ideas for this year. From the heart-stopping adrenaline rushes to relaxing spa days, Experience Days is proud to have a range of activities to suit all the family – both this year and last! The most popular experience gift you placed next to the candy canes and presents in Christmas 2011 was one from our pamper days range. Well, after a stressful year and all that Christmas chaos… we aren’t surprised you all longed for the relaxing rejuvenation of a holistic spa day !
Pamper Your Partner with a Spa Day Experience
Price range: £49 – £399
Pamper days for yummy mummies, for him, for her and for two – whether you’re looking to treat your partner, parents or even go along with a friend, there’s a spa day for everyone and every occasion.
After the excitement of opening all those presents has dwindled and the last turkey sandwich is sitting heavy amongst all the bucks fizz and mulled wine, there isn’t much a girl or guy would like more than a spa therapy. Massages, manicures, facials – and hundreds of other treatments await… ready to pamper some life back into tired souls ready for 2013!
Indoor Skydiving, Tandem Skydiving and Static Line Skydiving – Nationwide
Price range: £49 – £1699
If kicking back with a relaxing spa therapy is a bit too chilled out for your gift ideas – how about a nice spot of skydiving? Experiences really don’t come much more extreme than free fall, and as a chart topping favourite from last year – that excitement clearly comes highly recommended. Indoors or out, skydiving can even be suitable for people with a fear of heights – as the magnificent indoor wind tunnels in both Milton Keynes and Manchester mean you don’t even need to catch a plane!
For those of us with an adrenaline junkie in our family, or at least relatives that think they are – put them to the test with an actual skydive. Well, if you’re going to do it, you may as well do it properly… Unsurprisingly within the skydiving range, the highest skydive in the UK is the most popular – so let your extreme daredevil cross one off their bucket list in style!
If a skydive in Lincoln is a bit too far to travel – fear not, for we have a huge range of other parachuting options available across the UK, including AFF Courses, Static Line Jumps and other tandems in Swindon, Cambridge and Devon. Or, if you were to buy an open skydive voucher they could choose their own skydiving location from a list of 14.
Photoshoot and Fashion Makeover
Price range: £20 – £695
Another hugely popular experience from last Christmas was the couple’s photoshoot. Brilliant for siblings, grandparents, friends, parents – and of course; couples in love! With hair and makeup styling included, the lucky models will look as good as they feel on this fantastic four hour experience.
If posing for the camera is more of a nightmare than a dream day out, how about making your loved one feel like a million dollars aboard one of London’s prestigious dining experience cruises?
Classic Thames Lunch Cruise for Two
This tasty little treat not only gifts your loved one a wonderful dining experience on the Thames – but also throws your name in the hat as their guest! Put your feet up and let someone else do the cooking, cleaning, driving… more wine? Yes please!
If you don’t feel you could quite manage a posh three course meal with all that chocolate, Christmas turkey and eggnog sitting in your belly, may we recommend another popular experience from last year? The Thoresby Hall Afternoon Tea for Two is the ideal afternoon tea break, combining the beauty of Thoresby’s picturesque settings together with a menu of culinary treats to tickle the taste buds of anyone lucky enough!
Ensure your lucky one feels special and spoilt this Christmas by treating them to a unique and memorable experience.
