Gift ideas: Experience Days

Experience Days                                                                     

We are always on the lookout for different ways to create memories. Before the arrival of our three littles, Mr S and I spent hours perfecting our scuba diving skills in a freezing cold quarry in the UK, in preparation for hours of scuba diving fun on our holiday in Mauritius. Seven years later, and with my wonderful husband’s birthday coming up – it has got me thinking….. we always plan a break, day out, holiday or meal with our beautiful kids in tow. If I’m honest, I couldn’t imagine experiencing new things, sights, colours and smells without the little ones by our side. But if we were to plan a day out without the kids….where would we go??

When got in touch to let me know what experience days they offer – It definitely got me thinking about what is on our bucket list, and what would we love to do? Would you be tempted by a rally driving experience , a hot air ballon ride or a sailing experience?


Here are a few ideas to inspire you……

Hot air balloon ride

This has always been on my bucket list. I have always wanted to experience a hot air balloon ride. To witness a spectacular bird’s eye view of the English countryside from a hot air balloon with someone you love – what an amazing and memorable experience.

Sky Diving

For the adrenaline junkies in the world. brings you a range of Skydiving experiences and courses if free-falling through the air is on your bucket list. have a number of Skydiving centres across the UK, with experienced Parachute instructors  who will help to make a memorable and once in a lifetime experience.



As a family we love to try out surfing. We are complete beginners, but there is nothing better than hitting the beach and heading out for a surfing experience. Surfing is a recognised and popular beach sport and offer a great selection of UK based surfing experiences ranging from half to full day courses.

Scuba diving

Before children, myself and Mr S learned to Scuba Dive. We spent many a day at a UK quarry learning to become a PADI advanced open water divers. I have the best memories of the deepest seas in Mauritius and Thailand exploring a whole new world together.



Last year we learned to Kayak in the Isles of Scilly, and I loved that it is suitable for both adults and children, and therefore something that we could do as a family. offer kayaking activity days that are great gift ideas for Birthday and Christmas Gifts.

So what is on your bucket list?
