April 4, 2011 - PRLog -- Sometimes it's hard to find the perfect present and rather than putting in the effort to choose a really meaningful gift, there is often a temptation to just grab something that looks vaguely suitable and post it off with our best wishes. But when someone special in your life has an extra special occasion to celebrate, just a little bit of thought can get them a really unexpected gift that will surprise and delight. When you really want to show someone you much you care, forget about token gifts and instead treat them to an experience they will never forget.

Experience gifts (http://www.redletterdays.co.uk/Home) are a fabulously unique way to give someone a perfectly tailored present that suits their own unique tastes and shows how much you care. What's more, there are so many options to choose from that you are sure to find something to suit your own budget too. So whether a good friend is turning 30, your parents' are celebrating an anniversary or you need to find the perfect romantic gesture for your valentine, gift experiences make wonderfully unusual presents for any occasion.

Special Birthdays

Birthday's come around every year but some are more special than others and when someone close to you is hitting one of those milestones it is important to mark the occasion with the celebration it deserves. If someone in your family is soon to celebrate an 18th birthday, an unusual way to mark their progression to adulthood is with a unique day out that will last in their memory long after the party plates have been cleared away. If you want to celebrate their new status as a fully grown adult, why not send them off for a wine tasting session at an English vineyard? They will learn all about the wine making process, from planting to bottling as well as discovering the secrets to a great drop.

Or perhaps your brother is turning 30 (http://www.redletterdays.co.uk/Occasions/Birthday-Gifts/3...) and feeling a little sensitive about it. If so, there are some great experiences that will allow him to rediscover his inner child and remind him that age is simply a state of mind. You could take him paintballing and recreate the sibling rivalry of your youth as you get kitted out in combat overalls, load up your paintball gun and go crashing through the undergrowth on a serious combat mission. Or if you want to give him an exhilarating adventure that will quickly perk him up, send him to the racetrack for a few laps in a Ferrari or a Lamborghini. After feeling the thrill of unparalleled acceleration and speeding round the track like a pro, he'll be fully rejuvenated and ready to take on the world.

Be My Valentine

When you really want to show someone how much they mean to you and you need a unique romantic gesture to show your commitment, experience gifts are a great way to say 'I love you'. The special person in your life will be delighted that you've gone to the effort of finding something unusual that's a million miles from the usual clich├ęs such as roses or champagne. The best thing about giving a gift experience to a sweetheart (http://www.redletterdays.co.uk/Experience/Couples) is that you can enjoy the adventure as a couple and create happy memories that will mean more to both of you than any material item ever would.

If you want to indulge your partner with some well-earned relaxation then a lovely way to spend some quality time together is with a spa day for two. You'll have the whole day at the spa to enjoy facilities such as sauna, steam room and plunge pool or if you're feeling energetic you could even take a fitness class together. Sharing some soothing relaxation time together, far from the troubles of everyday life will help you get closer as a couple and appreciate each other all the more.

Or if you are the sort of people that find the best way to relax is to get your adrenaline pumping then why not try an adventure experience for two. For the ultimate thrill, surprise your partner with an indoor skydive, where you will step into a massive wind tunnel and experience the exhilaration of free flight. With more free fall time than an outdoor skydive, this is a fantastic way to get your heart pumping and you don't even have to jump out of a plane.

Parental approval

Many of us are guilty of not telling our parents just how grateful we are for all they have done for us over the years. They helped us with our homework, soothed our childhood illnesses, taught us to ride our bikes and performed so many other thankless tasks along the way. So when it comes to Father's Day or Mother's Day, take the opportunity to show them just how much you appreciate them and surprise them with a unique experience they will love. For magnificent mums, give them some time off from looking after everyone else in the family and send them for a relaxing massage or beauty makeover. She'll be blown away by your thoughtfulness and delighted to see that she's raised such a considerate child.

For fantastic fathers, say thank you by giving them the chance to fulfill their dreams with an exhilarating adventure they will never forget. Racing experiences (http://www.redletterdays.co.uk/Experience/Driving) are the perfect way to show someone how much you care by giving them the chance to take the wheel of their dream car. From Ferraris to classic sports cars, there is an experience to suit all tastes and budgets so you can choose the perfect day out for your special dad.

Whoever you want to surprise, when it comes to those really special occasions, don't settle for run-of-the-mill gifts, treat them to an experience that they will never forget. Not only will you show them just how special they are and how happy you are to share their special day but you will also give them the chance to try something they might never normally do and add some well-earned adventure to their daily life.
