What Your Girlfriend Really Wants for Christmas: Days Out & Experiences

Buying for anyone in your life can be a tough task. But when that other person is your ‘better’ half, you could be Tom Cruise but Christmas is still very much Mission Impossible. So instead of guessing like everyone else, we have sought help from your our sister site, Average Janes, who have pulled together what we should be buying our partners for Christmas.

We have four guides in total which will be released in the next week, Days Out and Experiences, Luxury Beauty, Music & Tech, Stocking Fillers and Lingerie! All under the guise of ‘What your girlfriend really wants for Christmas’. Naturally.

Our first one is written by the lovely Libby

One of the most thoughtful presents a Joe can get his girlfriend for Christmas is a special day out or experience. It’s a gift that shows you know what she likes and will give her something to look forward to when the fun festivities are over.

Whether she’s into the great outdoors or a relaxing massage at home, we have handpicked some fun days out and experiences any Jane would love.

Up at The O2

For adrenaline junkies and thrill-seekers, Up at The O2 would be a unique and cool gift idea.

It consists of a 90-minute invigorating climb accompanied by an experienced guide up one of London’s most iconic landmarks and rewards your loved one with 360-degree panoramic views across the capital.

To add an extra dimension, if you book a twilight or evening slot your girlfriend will get to see London’s stunning cityscape lit up by thousands of lights.

The Up at The O2 experience has been compared to walking across the legendary Sydney Harbour Bridge, so it is the perfect present for intrepid explorers!

With prices start at £28 per adult it isn’t overly expensive and are available here.
