If you’re looking for something different to get a friend or loved one as a birthday gift, why not consider an “experience” that you can enjoy together? Often the best presents are those you can share with someone else. There are loads of great experience gifts out there for you to choose from. Unlike a physical present to unwrap, the memories of experience gifts can last a lifetime, and it’s something you can enjoy together.
So, what sort of experience gifts should you get for a friend or loved one? Some of the most popular experience gifts are city breaks or short trips away. It might be to a city in your own country, a city in another country or a short break in the countryside or by the beach. Giving someone a well-earned break is a lovely present and gives them the opportunity to relax and recuperate. Plus it gives them the chance to explore and discover a brand new country or city, without the worry of having to save up for it.
Perhaps it’s something a bit more “out there” and adventurous that you’re after. Then how about treating your friend or loved one to something exciting such as a hot air balloon ride, abseiling, bungee jumping or a skydiving experience? These kinds of experience gifts are amazing and great fun, but probably not one for anybody scared of heights! Other daredevil experience gifts could be a ride in a Formula One car or a day spent rally car racing – ideal for petrol heads and speed demons.
Perhaps you want to get something a little more affordable, in which case a fun night out could be in the cards. How about treating them to some live stand-up comedy or, if they’re into psychic stuff, how about a trip to see a clairvoyant or tarot reader? If you’re wondering what is tarot reading, it’s simply a way of looking at someone’s past, present and future. And answering questions through a connection with the spiritual world – a fantastically unique gift if they’re into that sort of thing!
