top 5 gift experiences

November has arrived which means Christmas is just around the corner and although we’re sure many people out there are well on their way to finishing all their festive shopping, we’re also sure there’ll be plenty of people who still have no idea where to start!

Men are notoriously difficult to buy for but you needn’t look any further for the perfect gift for the gentleman in your life because we’ve got it covered!

We’ve teamed up with the Activity Superstore, one of the UK’s largest retailers of gift experiences. In over 40 years of trading, the Activity Superstore has gained over a million customers and now stock their gift experiences in major retailers across the UK including Boots, Debenhams, Argos and Morrisons!

The popularity of gifting experiences opposed to physical items has increased over recent years, which means now more than ever is the perfect time to give the gift of an experience they’ll never forget.

We’re going to share with you our top 5 gift experiences for men from the Activity Superstore that we think are bound to be best sellers for Christmas 2017!

Triple Supercar Drive

Many men are car fanatics and in particular supercars which means this fuel-filled day out is the perfect choice for any car lover!

The Triple Supercar Drive experience is currently retailing for £99 (full price £179) and offers the recipient the opportunity to choose three supercars from an incredible line-up to take for a spin around a specially designed track. You’ll be greeted by a trained instructor who will tell you everything you need to know before you head out on the first of your three drives, each one approximately 3 miles!

Choose from a shining array of supercars including a Ferrari 360 or 355, Lamborghini Gallardo, Aston Martin DB9 or V8 Vantage, Porsche 996, 997 or 911 and many more.

This gift experience is available at 17 locations across the UK including Leeds, Canterbury and Lochgelly!

JCB Digging

There’s not many men out there who wouldn’t fancy the chance to get behind the controls of a JCB digger. So, if you know a man who would love the opportunity to have a play around in a digger, this JCB gift experience is ideal for him.

This 90-minute experience truly is unlike any other gift you could give, but the simplicity of the activity is what makes it so fun! The recipient will have the opportunity to take charge of a JCB 3CX Backhoe Loader on purpose designed land and drive around, dig holes and move mud around until their heart’s content.

It may sound basic but it’s an opportunity we’re sure many men would jump at! This experience is £129, can be redeemed at four locations across the UK and is available on selected dates between April and October.

Segway Rally Adventure for Two

The perfect gift to give couples or to a father and son, this Segway Rally Adventure for two for £79 is a great way to spend a few hours!

This gift experience enables two people to visit one of 17 locations across the UK to take part in a range of different Segway activities. Once you’re all kitted out with the necessary safety gear, you’ll set off on an instructor led training session to help you get to grips with the Segway before taking to the purpose-built track to test out your skills on different courses and terrains.

If you fancy giving the gift of a fun day out for two doing something out of the ordinary, this is a great choice!

Ultimate Helicopter Experience

If you’ve got a man in the family who is keen to learn to fly, this Ultimate Helicopter Experience is perfect for them.

A 45-minute lesson that will teach the participant all the basic skills required to fly a helicopter. The experience starts with an introduction and safety brief from the instructor but quickly moves on to the first of three flights where you’ll be allowed to take over the controls up in the air and have a go at flying the helicopter. After this, you’ll be the passenger for the remaining two rides so you can learn from your trained instructor as well as enjoying the views.

This helicopter experience is currently retailing for £109 (full price £199) and can be claimed on selected weekend dates throughout the year at any of 7 locations, including Greater Manchester and Cheltenham.

Beer Masterclass and Burger Meal for Two

There’s nothing most men love more than a good burger and a pint so this Beer Masterclass experience for two is always going to be a winner.

For £59, two people can visit one of 17 Brewhouse & Kitchen locations across the UK for an amazing beer tasting masterclass and a burger meal. Led by one of Brewhouse’s beer experts, the two participants will taste 8 great beers whilst learning all about how they were made, all of which are accompanied by nibbles before moving on to a freshly cooked burger and chips. After you’ve finished drinking and dining, you can head to the on-site micro-brewery for a quick tour of where a lot of the beers are made.

Don’t forget that all recipients of this gift need to be 18!

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for the man that has everything then we’re sure you’ll find something to suit them perfectly in that selection of gift experiences.

Spoilt for choice? If you fancy trying the experiences before you pick the perfect one, then Activity Superstore’s upcoming event is something you won’t want to miss!  Head one of 21 Debenhams stores across the UK on the 22nd November to take part in their Virtual Reality event which allows you to test out some of the experiences ahead of buying so you know exactly what to expect!
