What to give for Christmas this year:
Ultimate guide to make the right choice
Christmas is synonymous with presents (secret Santa, Father Christmas, the Three Wise Men…), but the chance to find the perfect gift for everyone is getting harder and harder, because —let’s face it— there are few material things in this day and age that really excite us.
For that reason, we suggest gifting experiences this year: they will make memories that will last a lifetime —and they will not end up taking up space in the wardrobe.
Keep reading and discover our ultimate guide to choose the perfect gift this Christmas:
A getaway in Spain
You don’t need to go out of Spain to discover interesting places. Spain has a little bit of something: beaches, mountains, culture, gastronomy… Choose the right destination for that person and then, find the perfect accommodation for the getaway.
A charming country hotel, a large complex with pools and water slides, a modern accommodation in the middle of the city… There are endless options and you won’t go wrong with any of them.
A relaxing moment
With today’s fast-paced lifestyles it can be difficult to stop and dedicate time to ourselves and to our wellbeing. Indulge your friend or relative with a moment of relaxation.
There is nothing better for that than a hydrotherapy session at a spa centre equipped with heated pools, Jacuzzis, sauna, experience showers… You can make that person feels even more special by adding a relaxing massage or a beauty treatment.
A day of adventure and fun
If you prefer to gift a family experience with children being the stars of the show, here’s an idea you will absolutely love: tickets for a theme park —family fun is guaranteed.
For example, there is one Western theme park in Almería, which includes a village (used as a set for countless films) and a zoological reserve with more than 170 different animal species. Obviously, we are talking about Oasys MiniHollywood, in Tabernas Desert.
You can buy one-day tickets or gift them the Annual Pass, so they can visit the park as many times as they want. Besides, if you purchase it during Christmas, you will get a 20% discount on the price.
Also located in Almería, in Roquetas de Mar to be exact, Aquarium Costa de Almería is another place where fun and learning come together. This space focuses on the different marine ecosystems and there they will find amazing species: piranhas, koi carp, rays, colourful fish and even a shar… Your friends or relatives will have a whale of a time!
A culinary experience
If you want your present to leave a good taste in the mouth of the person who will be receiving it, this option is for you. Gifting a voucher or a tasting menu at any renowned restaurant is always a good idea.
The experience in these type of restaurants is a true delight for the senses and not only for the food, but also for every single detail that comes with it (even the tableware can be surprising). Just for the way they present the dishes at the table, it is worth the visit to one of these restaurants.
A course or workshop to learn something new
Knowledge is power, so gifting a course or workshop can be another great option to bear in mind. There is a wide range of choices: cooking, diving, pottery, singing, painting, restoration, cocktail making, languages… Use your imagination and surprise that special persona with an unexpected present.
