Ultimate gift guide

by Elisa Parry

We love going above and beyond when it comes to celebrating milestone moments. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or simply a special occasion to spoil someone you love - when it comes to choosing a gift you can’t go wrong with a grand gesture. 

There is no better feeling than giving someone a gift they’ll love. We’re talking about giving the kind of gift that makes someone do a happy dance or even spill some happy tears! So be the ultimate gift-giver and surprise someone with an experience that is guaranteed to impress.

We’re celebrating our 16th birthday this week, which got us thinking about what makes the ultimate gift? To help you out, we’ve pulled together the ultimate gift guide full of experiences with plenty of WOW-factor. 


Do you have a 21st, 40th, or even a 60th party booked into the calendar? Help the lucky birthday boy or girl celebrate their special day by scratching skydiving off their bucket list. There’s nothing quite like throwing yourself out of a plane at a cool 15000ft to make you feel alive!

Vintage car hire

Sometimes, going that extra mile is all about the details. Have you got an anniversary on the horizon? Perhaps you’ve planned a picnic at a romantic location. So why not take things to the next level and surprise your partner with a new set of wheels for the day. Take the scenic route in Lamborghini or live life in the fast lane in a Ferrari. For those happy to cruise at a slightly slower pace, keep the top down and the tunes pumping in a Ford Mustang convertible.
