Hot air ballooning

Gift a once-in-a-lifetime experience this Christmas. Spoil someone special like your mum or your partner with the chance to take to the sky in a hot air balloon. With locations across Australia, your loved ones could be soaring over the Hunter Valley or even taking in stunning views of the Outback.

Spa treatment

Everyone needs a nice relaxing massage to help them survive the festive season. There’s no doubt that Mum would love a day spa voucher for Christmas, but remember, pamper sessions aren’t just for ladies… Why not gift dad an old-school barbershop hot towel shave and haircut experience? He’ll love it!

Like hot air ballooning, this is one of those bucket list experiences – only for those who are slightly more adventurous. What could be more exciting than receiving a skydiving voucher on Christmas morning? It’s certainly a gift they’ll never forget.

Happy holidays

Know someone who needs a holiday? We have a range of getaway experiences that don’t have to break the bank. If could be a staycation in a fancy hotel or a beachside getaway – the best bit is, they’ll have three years to use the value of their voucher so they can go at a time that suits them.

High tea

Sweet treats, savoury treats, bubbles and tea – what’s not to love about a high tea experience. You can go with something traditional, like The Hotel Windsor or try something slightly different like a country style high tea in the Kangaroo Valley.
