It's heading fast towards that time of year again (already!!)

We all know giving gifts can be just as exciting as receiving them. And we all have too much stuff... Why not consider a Christmas with less packaging and more memories by giving the gift of experiences?

As someone who loves to travel and take advantage of opportunities, I love giving and receiving gift experiences. One of the big things I try to promote is that travel doesn’t need to be a big, grand gesture. It can be as simple as taking time out to have a new experience closer to home, like a train trip, a spa retreat, an afternoon tea in a fancy place, or a theatre break and gift experiences are a great way to do that!  It could also be that you buy an excursion for someone to enjoy in the destination they've already booked for next year! 

Browse through the tabs below for some of my favourite ideas - but if you have other suggestions please contact me and I will be happy to quote you!

If all else fails, I offer gift vouchers starting from just £25.
