Christmas Bonanza 2017 | BuyAGift

There’s nothing worse than asking someone what they want for Christmas, only for them to say ‘surprise me’, or ‘I don’t mind’ or ‘money’. Ok, there is one thing worse and that’s when that person is you. I am so, so guilty of saying all of those three throughout the year but it never comes at a worse time than at Christmas. I am getting better though; making mental notes of things I might like throughout the year so when someone does ask me I can give them a choice.

I don’t know about you but I adore meaningful gifts. Quite a few of the things I get for Christmas I could and would buy for myself anyway but I think Christmas is about being thoughtful or getting something for someone that they wouldn’t normally be able to do, or afford or just have.

BuyAGift has been my home of gifts recently, especially as I just had my birthday. They have given me ideas for presents that I didn’t even know existed or that I had just overlooked or hadn’t thought of and this will come in so handy at Christmas time.

If you’ve never heard of BuyAGift before then where have you been? They’re the UK’s leading provider of experience days and while there are several competitors on the market, none have come close to replicating the variety and service of BuyAGift, in my opinion. I last used BuyAGift earlier this year where I went for a spa day and I’ve literally been dreaming of having another one ever since.

Booking With BuyAGift

BuyAGift are essentially the middle man but they offer every experience you could possibly want in one place, there’s no reason to look elsewhere. Obviously there are booking processes in place and it’s always worth reading the terms and conditions just so that you’re not caught out. I find with these kinds of things that there can be exceptions and/or restrictions in place in terms of days and times so it’s imperative that you know what you’re booking.

You’ll get an e-voucher sent to your inbox with a 60 day refund policy and free exchanges if you need it!

What If I Can’t Choose?

If an experience is something you want to give but you’re not sure which to go for you can always buy a voucher so that the recipient can choose what activity they’d like to do. BuyAGift call this a ‘Smartbox’. These are valid for up to 24 months, come in a ready packaged gift box and they start from just £29.99.

What Kind Of Experiences Can I Choose From?

Obviously you can look at the website for all available experiences but just to get a feel for it you can expect spa days to afternoon tea, to GoApe adventures or going out for a meal at somewhere like Zizzi or Prezzo. There really are so many choices!

Win With BuyAGift

Anyway, on to the good stuff. I have an incredible spa day planned with BuyAGift and I can’t wait to share the full review of that with you on the blog in the coming weeks. Until then, maybe you’ll be booking your own experience before Christmas with the chance to win a £50 BuyAGift voucher in my Christmas Bonanza!
