30 experience gift ideas for those people who have everything

Looking for a gift for that person who is way too hard to buy for? Ditch the socks and try an experience gift.

There's only so many times you can buy handcreams and socks as Christmas presents. So think outside the box this Christmas and go for an experience gift instead.

Experience gifts can be exciting, relaxing, exhilarating and more. Why not take your partner on a helicopter ride? Or you could send your mum off to a Chandon breakfast for two? And don't you think dad would love to go rally car racing rather than get socks?

And the best part is that a thoughtful and personalised experience gift is just a few clicks away! No need to fuss and fight your way through the shops.

Things are temporary but memories last a lifetime. So why not check out Red Balloon's huge range of 3,500 experience gifts this Christmas? You'll find Santa-approved experiences for the whole family.
