Unique Gift Ideas for the Holidays

Buying holiday gifts for family and friends is difficult. You’d like to get the intended recipient something that will not only surprise them but is also something they really want or need. If you’re struggling to come up with ideas for gifts that your loved ones are bound to enjoy, then why not considering getting them a gift experience. Gift experiences provide them with the opportunity to try a truly fun and unique activity that they may have only dreamt of in the past. Here are some great gift experiences that might help to shorten your holiday shopping list this season.

Supercar driving

Nearly everyone has imagined what it would be like to sit behind the wheel of a powerful and expensive supercar, and with the supercar driving experience you can make this seemingly impossible dream come true. Whether it’s a Lamborghini, Porsche, Ferrari, or Aston Martin, your loved one could soon find themselves racing around the track on a once in a lifetime drive in a supercar.


Tank driving

Do you have a military history fanatic in your family? Someone who can’t stop watching old war documentaries and reading books about military strategy from the great wars of the past? Then give them the opportunity to experience a part of military life by learning how to drive the 17 tons of steel that make a modern tank.

4×4 Off roading

Have you ever wondered how thrilling it would be to ditch the paved way and take your car off-road? A 4×4 off roading experience will give you just that, giving you all the opportunities you need to throttle your way through dirt, mud, obstacles, hills, bumps and more. This adrenaline-pumping experience is bound to get anyone’s blood rushing.


Steam train driving

If you think that modern trains have lost all the beauty and mystique of the old world steamers, the steam train driving experience offers the chance to steam-power through the countryside, enjoying beautiful views of Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire while sitting in the conductor’s seat of a 5/8thscale classic steam engine.

Rally driving

For those who enjoy the ultimate thrills of risk-reward driving, there is no better experience than getting the chance to strap on your helmet and enter the rally-car driving world. From wheel spins and handbrake turns, to powerslides and jumps, anyone who’s ever watched and wondered what it would be like to race their way around a rally car track will be in for the ultimate fun with this gift experience.

If you can’t find the perfect gift for your friends and family, then this holiday why not give them an experience that they will never forget.
