Looking for gifts your loved ones will never forget? We are counting down the days to the holidays and that means Christmas shopping season has officially begun! If you want to surprise your loved ones with unique gifts that will spread joy and last forever, we can help you out. Check out our list of the top 5 gifts that aren’t things to become everyone’s new favourite gift-giver. Because woolly socks may be a timeless gift, but life-time experiences are forever!
1. A tailored spa break
Is your dad always complaining about his bad back? Or you mum always saying that she never has time to get her hair done? We’ve got the perfect gift: a spa day for two with a back massage & a hair treatment. This Christmas, go beyond the generic spa voucher to offer your loved ones a spa experience, specifically tailored to their needs. Book a day-break or an overnight stay, depending on your budget, at your local spa. And make sure to add a hand-picked treatment to make your loved ones feel truly special on their pampering day.
2. A surprise holiday scratch card
Amateur aeroplane tickets made on Microsoft Word are out- scratch cards are in! For a truly surprising gift, give your loved ones a travel scratch card, which they can only scratch once they get to the airport. Still wondering how it works? 1) Book the tickets for your loved ones’ dream destination 2) Order a customised scratch card with the name of their destination. Oh, and be sure to also give them the real travel tickets in a sealed envelope. As far as we know, airlines don’t accept novelty scratch cards!

Maybe it’s a restaurant they always said they wanted to go to, or one of their favourites reserved only for special occasions! Turn an ordinary day into a special day for them by treating them to a high-quality dining experience only they can appreciate!
5. A skill-building workshop
