At this time of the year, us Joes can struggle when it comes to buying the women in our lives a special gift. It could be your mum, sister, nan or of course your partner of differing levels. But fear not, to show a bit more thought than the Christmas Eve dash around the high street – we have again enlisted the help of the lovely ladies at Average Janes to give us some top advice on what to get your girlfriend for Christmas.
We’ve got five guides coming out over the next couple of weeks to help you solve your Christmas present dilemmas. To kick off, we’ve got beautiful Becky to give us some top advice on Christmas Days Out and Experiences to treat your girlfriend with this Christmas…
Whether your girlfriend is an adrenalin-junkie or loves to relax and be pampered, you can’t go wrong with gifting her a Day Out surprise for Christmas. It shows you’ve put some thought into what she likes to spend time doing, and that you know her really well (perhaps even better than she thinks you do!). To get your inspiration flowing, here are some top days out for every type of woman.
For the Adventurers
Time Run: The Celestial Chain
If you want to add a bit of mystery to your relationship this festive season, then check out the latest new action adventure from Time Run: The Celestial Chain. Live gaming – where teams solve challenges to reach the next part of an adventure or escape from a locked room – has really taken off this year, so you’ll be bang on trend by booking this gift package.
Join your team of four for a high-octane chase through this cinematic live adventure from the distant past to far-flung future. Find out more and book your tickets from the Time Run Website.
iFLY: Indoor Skydiving
Keeping warm yet falling through the sky? Gifts from iFLY are a great treat for the girl that loves a bit of adventure but perhaps doesn’t like heights! With centres all around the UK and starting at less than £50 it’s a great gift – find out more here.
For the Foodies
Afternoon Tea across the UK
For a proper bit of pampering, you can’t beat an afternoon tea. Whether it’s treating your girlfriend yourself, or booking in a treat for her with her mum or best friend. A luxury afternoon of posh sandwiches, cakes and a bit of fizz is always welcome. To help you out, the girls at Average Janes have gathered our favourite places for a delicious Afternoon Tea – get booking!
For the Drama Queens
Sleeping Beauty at Hackney Empire
If your girlfriend loves terrible jokes and a bit of interactive theatre (oh, yes she does!) – then you can’t beat a traditional panto at Christmas. Hackney Empire are putting on the absolute classic Sleeping Beauty, running until 8 January 2017. Set in the enchanted land of Hackneytopia, and filled with goodies and baddies galore, this is a panto that will have you shouting out along with the cast for an evening of good old fashioned theatre fun! If your partner has young kids, siblings, or nieces and nephews, earn extra brownie points by inviting them along to join you. Go on – get practicing your best “It’s behind you!”. More info and tickets available from the Hackney Empire Website.
Not London based? Other great pantos that we’re loving this season are:
• King’s Theatre, Edinburgh – Jack and the Beanstalk
• Arts Theatre, Cambridge – Dick Whittington
• New Theatre, Cardiff – Peter Pan
• 88 London Road, Brighton – Beauty & The Beast
• Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds – Cinderella
For the Wellbeing Fanatics
Yoga for Two at View from The Shard
Has your girlfriend had a super busy year? Then how about treating her to some relaxing wellbeing time with a stunning view – 310m up from street level! This unusual package gives two people the opportunity to enjoy a yoga lesson, plus an additional hour’s viewing time taking in incredible views across London from the top of the Shard.
Whether she’s a full-on yoga bunny or a beginner wanting to give yoga a go, treat your girlfriend to some quality “me time”. You could go with her, or offer her the chance to take a mate. Worth it for the outstanding view alone (bragging rights included!). Get your yoga package from BuyaGift.co.uk from just £40.
