Gift experiences sold at an activity superstore

Activity superstores are organisations which sell a huge variety of gift experiences. These are often activity days, pamper days, or something similar. The idea is that the gift enables the recipient to 'live their dream'. However are these gifts a good idea and of good value? This article looks at them in more detail and explore their pros and cons.

Types of gifts

The types of gifts offered usually leave no choice to the recipient to choose otherwise. Hence, there are activity gifts such as flying lessons, motor racing gift experience days, and champagne balloon flights. For those who want to relax, there are pamper days. There are increasingly presents for couples of various types. The gifts usually come boxed with a voucher and a list of places where it can be redeemed.

Advantages of gift experiences

Experience gifts are a great idea for the person who appears to have everything, particularly if he or she likes excitement and is keen on experiencing new things. If you are buying something like a flying lesson, the gift experience vouchers are a good idea as they can often be used in many different places across the UK. This means that it is possible to buy such an item for someone living far away from you knowing that they will be able to use it locally.

Disadvantages of gift experiences

The main disadvantages relate to cost. These are not cheap gifts and they are made more expensive by the fact that a middleman is involved - the activity super store. If you want to buy someone a flying lesson or a motor racing experience, it is actually much cheaper to buy it directly from a flying school or from other organisations.

Should you buy one of these gifts?

The answer to this question probably depends on you and the recipient. If you have the time and the 'know how', you would be better off buying such a gist directly and not paying the extra to the activity superstore. However, if you want to make things easy and want the recipient to have a choice as to where to redeem the gift, then, by all means do it this way. Certainly, such gifts are usually welcomed by the recipient: They are nicely presented and easy to use.
