Hey everyone! Autumn has arrived and as the darker nights draw in, my thoughts have turned to Christmas and some of my favourite family gift ideas.
This year, things to do with the family are high on my list so I’ve teamed up with new experience company WonderDays for a guide to some of my favourite experience day gifts for families this Christmas.
We love spending quality time together as family whenever we can, so an experience day gift could be the perfect festive present everyone can enjoy.
Here’s some of my top five family experience day gift ideas for Christmas 2022.
Shrek’s Adventure Gift Experience
The whole family can get involved in Shrek’s Adventure – an immersive, live action show with the cast of the iconic animated movie.
Included with the WonderDays gift experience option is a two-course meal at Hard Rock Café following the performance of your choice.
Recommended for children aged six and over, kids under three are free at the Shrek Adventure when accompanied by a paying adult.
If they love Shrek, this really is a great Christmas gift idea that children and grown-ups alike will love.
Wizards London Bus Tour
The magic of Harry Potter is proving as enduring as Hogwarts itself and London bus tour covering all the iconic locations from the movies and books is a great Christmas gift idea for any Potterhead.
From Platform 9 ¾ to the Knight Bus route, The Wizards Bus Tour covers all the memorable landmarks from Harry’s adventures in the capital, along with other major London sites such as Big Ben, London Bridge and more.
It’s a fully flexible experience too, whether you’re a family of two, three, five or more.
Junior Supercar Driving Experience
Imagine the excitement on their face when your child opens the Christmas gift experience of a supercar driving day.
Available for kids aged 10 and over, they get to drive themselves around the track in up to five different sports cars.
Available at 12 different locations across the UK, it’s a great gift idea for adrenaline loving kids.
For a family of animal lovers, becoming a zoo keeper for a day could be the perfect Christmas gift experience.
Families of two, four or six can enjoy looking after, handling and feeding a range of animals for the afternoon.
You could meet lemurs, meerkats, skunks and even snakes – the exact animals are chosen on the day based around their welfare.
For those on the braver side, WonderDays also has a carnivore experience available, where you can get up close and personal with top predators from different parts of the world.
Zip World Experience Days
If you or they are a family of adrenaline junkies, WonderDays has a range of different Zip World experience day gifts this Christmas.
The full range of Christmas gift ideas from Zip World includes a dozen different coasters, treetop adventures and underground zip lines and jumping experiences.
WonderDays also has hundreds of other Christmas experience day gift ideas on offer this year.
Their experience day vouchers are all fully flexible and exchangeable, so if you do choose something that turns out not to be quite what they had wanted, it can easily and quickly be swapped for something else.
If you do or have previously enjoyed any of the experience day ideas from this blog, I’d love to hear from you in the comments section.
