Our Alternative Christmas Gift Guide

Give the gift of events this Christmas, with our alternative Christmas gift guide for the whole family, you can’t go wrong! Some family members are just so hard to buy for, so why not treat them to an experience you can share together – best part is, it doubles as a gift to yourself as well! We love this idea because it allows you to personalise the experience to the respective special person. We have selected an experience suited to each family member, plus your significant other. However, these gifts could work for friends, colleagues or whoever you would like to treat this season.
