Discovering New Worlds Side by Side: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing Your Perfect 'For Two' Experience!

Buying gifts can be tough, especially if you’re shopping for someone who ‘has everything.’ If you’re thinking of getting a ‘For Two’ experience for that special someone in your life, or you’re buying for a couple, then there are plenty of exciting gifts that can help them make memories. These are far more valuable than material gifts, but picking the perfect one is no easy feat.

If you’re looking for the perfect couple's experience, RedBalloon has you covered with a huge range of vouchers. From adventurous jet ski rides to romantic winery tours, there’s something for everyone!

Here’s how to book a ‘For Two’ experience they’ll love.

Step 1: Know Their Interests

Firstly, you have to understand the recipient that you’re buying for. The best way to create a romantic experience is to give them something they’ll really enjoy. After all, this ensures they’ll have a good time on their experience and be able to create special memories.

For some couples, the gift of their dreams is a relaxed and sophisticated winery tour for two, giving them a chance to sip, savour, and enjoy. For others, it’s a more unique and energetic experience like a smash and splash room where they can get messy and let out their frustrations while having fun.

There are tons of experiences for couples on RedBalloon, which means plenty of opportunities for you to give the perfect gift.

Step 2: Setting a Budget

There’s no point in spending too much on gifts for two. If you’re buying for a partner, overspending can make you too stressed out to enjoy the experience, which might ruin your date! Luckily, there are plenty of affordable options that still allow the special people in your life to make memories.

For example, there are plenty of experience gifts for couples that are under $200. This includes experiences like Deluxe High Tea in the Blue Mountains, available for just $150. Dates like this give couples a chance to spend quality time together and unwind in peace, providing exceptional value for money.

Adventure gifts for couples can be a little more expensive, but can still be well within your price range. This helicopter flight for two, for example, is just $260.

No matter how much you have set aside, we have an experience gift to match.

Step 3: Location Matters

When gift-giving, it’s important to consider the location. Experience gifts can take place in numerous locations throughout Australia. However, if you give someone a voucher for an experience based 3 hours away, you’re putting them out by making them arrange their own travel.

RedBalloon allows you to filter by location, ensuring you can give the perfect gift somewhere nearby. For example, if you want to get a ‘For Two’ gift in the Sydney CBD, a skywalk at Sydney tower is the perfect option.

Step 4: Time and Duration

Date experiences can last varying amounts of time. As a rule of thumb, the duration of the date should match the occasion. So, when gifting a ‘For Two’ experience for Christmas, a shorter date experience is appropriate, such as a Catamaran cruise.

Alternatively, for a milestone anniversary, a longer date like an overnight escape and gourmet breakfast is fitting.

Step 5: Creating Memories

Couple’s experiences are all about creating memories. This goes back to thinking about what the recipients enjoy. It’s a delicate balance between selecting something you know they’ll enjoy and finding something new for them to do.

Sometimes, making memories is all about adventure. Thrill-seeking couples might enjoy something that gets the adrenaline pumping, such as a jet ski tour.

For other couples, doing an activity they can take something from is even better. Cocktail making classes give them skills they’ll walk away with, so they have something to remember the experience by.

As long as you keep memory-making at the centre of your gift-giving decisions, you’ll be sure to give your loved ones the best present possible!

Step 6: Check Reviews and Ratings

A romantic experience is only as good as its ratings. Imagine taking a romantic trip to a private dining restaurant with a candlelit dinner, only to find that the wait staff are rude and the food is cold. Not so romantic anymore, right?

When booking experience gifts for couples, make sure you check the ratings and reviews. Remember, ratings can be subjective, so it’s important to try and find more detailed independent reviews so you can make up your own mind.

Ideally, you should also check third-party review sites like TrustPilot to verify the credibility of the company you book with.

Step 7: Add a Personal Touch

Adding a personal touch is what makes a gift truly special. With date experiences, it’s easy to make it personal by offering something that truly appeals to the recipient. However, you can go one step further with experiences that give the recipient something to take away.

For example, a wine blending class means that the couple comes away with a 750ml of their very own wine blend. As a result, they’ll have something special to remember the experience by.
