As gift experiences become increasingly popular in the UK, the type and availability of experiences has expanded dramatically--there's essentially a gift experience for anything you can imagine, from flying a World War II biplane to getting a shiatsu massage.
One of the most common UK gift experience is a driving experience. These experiences allow participants to drive race cars, go offroading or even use construction equipment. Other companies have experiences that allow the participant to drive a Ferrari around for the weekend, or to embrace their inner James Bond with an Aston Martin. Additionally, many companies also offer flying days, where participants can do everything from hang gliding to flying an antique airplane to skydiving.
Though generally oriented towards women, there is no shortage of spa and relaxation treatments as UK gift experiences. These treatments are available in most areas of the UK, although the availability of some treatments may vary from region to region. These treatments can last anywhere from thirty minutes to a whole weekend, and include everything from manicures and pedicures to algae wraps to a variety of massages and facials as well as aromatherapy. These experiences can be bought for one or two, and some sites offer discounts for a greater volume of orders.
Other gift experiences are more family-oriented. Many companies offer animal experience days, where families can go horseback riding, see how a falcon hunts, or even go for a trek on llamas. Some companies offer gift experiences especially for children, which can include everything from surfing to an introduction to modelling, or even a day of instruction in polo.
Often a company will offer gift experiences that last longer than one day--many offer weekend experiences at spas, romantic escapes to countryside cottages or wine tasting weekends. Food experiences are also common, with most companies offering a variety of "gourmet" gift experience options. Chocolate experiences are common, as well as gourmet meals, which come in a variety of traditions, including Italian, Indian and Japanese. Many companies also sell cookery courses, where the participants spend a day learning how to make certain types of food.
Many, many more UK gift experiences are available, while these are the most common; they truly just scratch the surface of all the experiences that are available. With the extremely wide variety of options, by comparing different companies, it is easy to find one that suits you and your budget.
