As the song goes: ‘it’s the most wonderful time of the year’. The little ones in your life will be looking forward to Santa providing them with an abundance of presents, but what about the adults? It can sometimes feel like an impossible task to buy a gift for someone who appears to have everything. However, here, with gas company, Flogas, we run through a range of ideas to spoil your loved ones with this year:
Hot air balloon ride
While you won’t be heading out to use a gas-powered hot air balloon on Boxing Day, it’s certainly a present you can take advantage of once the weather picks up. It’s also likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience to tick off the bucket list. While it could be a bit pricy, there are deals to get yourself up in the air for close to £100, with take-off spots all around the UK. To make it that extra bit special, why not book a trip to watch the sunrise?
If you need to buy a gift for a motoring fan, set them free in their favourite sports vehicle. There are many track day experiences available up and down the country with a selection of motors available to quench even the biggest thrill seekers’ thirst for excitement. Rev their engines as they sit behind the wheel of some of the finest automobiles known to man.
Does your recipient think they are good at everything? This is the ultimate day out that will truly push them to the limit. Do they watch Bear Grylls’ The Island and consider applying? If so, send them on a weekend’s survival course first and see how they fare. Let them battle the conditions and fend for themselves in the wilderness. They will learn new survival skills and really test their mettle.
Floatation tank therapy
While some claim this is just an expensive bath, it’s actually a whole lot more! This relaxation chamber is full of Epsom salts which are renowned for their health and beauty benefits. So, why not present the gift of stress relief this Christmas, thanks to this pod’s magnesium content. The soothing music that plays for the hour-long session allows the recipient to drift into a near-meditative state of calmness which washes all the negativity away.
Name a star
For just £10, this gift is perfect for those on a tight budget. With a ‘name a star’ present, you’ll be able to choose a name to be registered in the Intergalactic Star Database which will then have a unique number solely for the recipient. It’s a gift that is out of this world – literally!
A Lucky Voice karaoke kit is perfect for those who enjoy a sing-along. From £60, your lucky recipient can sing to their heart’s content with thousands of tracks available. It’s a great gift to be able to pull out when you are entertaining. See who would be the next X Factor winner, and who Simon Cowell would throw his straight-to-the-point put downs towards.
If you want to stay away from an activity gift, why not tickle their taste buds instead? For approximately £24, you can purchase a personalised Haribo tree! With a chocolate stalk and an abundance of the sweet manufacturer’s finest jellies, this 25cm tree is entirely edible. It could be the perfect accompaniment for the recipient to take to work to save them venturing to the vending machine.
While there is an endless amount of ideas out there, hopefully this quick guide can help you to choose something to buy for someone who has everything! Remember, Christmas is a time for giving, so spend every moment you can with your loved ones and enjoy the festive period!
