The popularity of experience days as presents has rocketed in the past few years, with more people than ever buying their friends and loved ones the gift of a fulfilling days out rather than a physical item. You need only take a quick look online to see the number of sites now offering these packages to realise how big and competitive a market it has become.
The appeal of experience days is that they allow you to give a gift tailored to the receiver’s personal interests and hobbies; if someone loves Formula One, you can give them a fun race track experience, alternatively, for someone that loves to be pampered, you have the option of a spa break gift. With the wide variety available, experience gifts are a great way to show someone you really understand them and what makes them happy.
The real joy of experience gifts is that they have made the impossible possible. Many people may have dreamed of hot air balloon flights, but a few years ago there was no easy way for a member of the public to do it without encountering very high costs. Now there are a number of companies offering hot air balloon rides as a experience package, meaning you can give someone a once in a life time experience that they will never forget. With complimentary champagne or soft drinks available upon landing, possibly at sunset, such gifts really can make dreams come true. Furthermore, experiences such as this can be shared, which makes the present even more special and personal.
