- Indoor Skiing
A good idea for those with family members or friends that love to ski or other winter sports is to get them an experience day in an indoor skiing center. Gift vouchers for skiing centers are widely available on gift experience sites as well as custom booking and hiring opportunities offered by the venues themselves being available.
- Aeroplane Flying / Hang gliding
If you have been finding present shopping for the truly fearless a little daunting then experience days that involve flying may just be the perfect gift. Flying experience gifts range from vouchers for beginner flying lessons to being flown in fighter jets or helicopters to hang gliding. For a more romantic touch, you could even hire an air balloon for a special celebratory meal in the sky.
- Driving Experiences
For those that are also into high octane action but prefer to enjoy their exploits on the ground, the solution comes in the form of driving experience days. From Formula one tickets to an Aston Martin experience day, nowadays thrill seeking speedsters can get the opportunity to sit behind the wheel of anything from professional racing cars and flashy exotic vehicles to army tanks and take them for a drive.

Kayaking is an activity that is experiencing a revival thanks to the Olympic effect while white water rafting has been the pursuit of choice of adrenaline-seekers for many years. If you’re on the hunt for something to give as a gift for someone who’s more outdoorsy then an experience day on the water may just do the trick. Not only do they learn a valuable outdoor skill, they will also spend the day in a beautiful natural environment too.
