Gifting has an element of thrill to it. It makes us happy. It sends our hearts racing. There are mixed emotions.

If you are the gifter, you want the person to like your gift. If you are the giftee, you want the gift to be something you would like. Regardless of which side of the aisle you are on, there’s a lot going on.

You’re nervous, you’re excited. You want everything to go well.

Thrill someone you love this Christmas with an absolute cracker of a gift. Blow their minds. Make them a gift they could never have imagined.

Like a scenic flight over the Outback, topped off with a gourmet lunch in a Michelin star restaurant. Or a day out in the deep seas, fishing and swimming with wild dolphins till the sun went down.

If you really put your mind to it, you can come up with some brilliant ideas.

A gift doesn’t just have to be something in a box. It could be anything. It could be an experience, an adventure. Something you did together as a family, as a group, or individually.

What matters is how much fun you had.

How much you enjoyed gifting the experience and how much the other person loved receiving it.

This holiday season, pledge to make it large. Go the extra mile. Do the extra work.

You’ve been gifting chocolates and flowers and clothes and what have you, all your life. 

It’s time now for a change.

For a little re-evaluation. Think out of the box. Think what your loved one would really like for a gift. Really.

Maybe they don’t want that new iPhone. Or an expensive diamond-encrusted watch. Maybe they would like something more personal. Something that’s close to their heart.

Find out what it is, and make a gift of it. Chances are you already know what it is. So get going and start planning.

This December, gift with heart. Don’t just pick any run-of-the-mill mass-produced gift, but work on it. Show that you care and make it meaningful.

If you are in Australia, you are in luck. There are tons of experiences you can gift someone.

There are gifts enjoyed solo like aromatherapy spa massage, professional fashion makeover, bungee jumping and V8 race car driving. There are also lavish made-to-order sushi, wine and coffee hampers.

For instance, if your partner is into watersports, you could gift them a fly-boarding experience. It is the latest craze and Thrill Experiences has some exciting offers.

If your girlfriend likes cozy dinners, you could surprise her with a private boat ride for two with dinner and champagne.

If your friend is a whisky connoisseur, you could gift them a customized Baileys and chocolate hamper.

There are gifts for children too.

From paintballing to horse riding to haunted mansion tours to art classes – there is an eclectic selection of experiences to choose from. If your child is into music, you could book a private studio recording to have their compositions professionally recorded.

If they like ghosts and video games, you could gift them a 3D virtual reality zombie gaming experience. You can also take them camping, kayaking and abseiling.

 

So go for it. It’s now or never.

Make this Christmas a Christmas to remember.

Go for an adventure. A mad fun experience you and your family will remember forever.

Board games are passé. So are dinners and movie. Bring back the real spice in life. Get everyone involved and do something thrilling, and watch your loved one’s face light up with joy.
