“If you try to buy Christmas with a credit card, you'll miss the point. It's not for sale. True Christmas spirit can only be given away and the price it demands is a piece of your heart.” ― Toni Sorenson

Christmas time is filled with miracles and magic, as well as a festive bustle in shops as people search for the perfect gift for each member of their friends and family. Material objects no longer cover the vast majority of presents - gifts of emotions and experiences have risen in popularity, widening the scope of things to consider. To share some interesting and unusual ideas, I’ve put together a list of potential Christmas and New Years gifts.

Spa day

Most people don’t regularly visit spas or take self-care days, and a spa day would give them the opportunity to take a break from their work, relax, and refresh their mind and body. This is a great gift for newlyweds on their honeymoon, married couples, or even just friends.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

If you still think magic and wonder are rare or nonexistent, rising hundreds of feet and floating above the world just might change your mind. This memorable experience is an especially good gift for couples or close friends - most balloon trips can only fit between 4 and 8 people into the cabin.


Quest is a way to present any gift in an original and fun way, turning it into an exciting game. It is just like a regular escape room, except instead of escaping, your goal is to find the object - in this case, your gift. Here is the main idea: the surprise is hidden somewhere in the room or building (depending on which location you go to), and the player is told a riddle hinting them where they should look for the next note. Solving all the puzzles leads the player to the gift. The easiest option for this entertainment is an indoor quest.

With this option, you get to watch the player excitedly unravel the riddles and find your gift. Alternatively, you can call a group of people to participate, turning the event into a fun holiday adventure. Either way, such a surprise will surely please your loved ones, and the memory of this wonderful adventure will stay for a long time!

Gift Certificate From a Restaurant

This is an old school option - candles, light music, dinner, and pleasant conversation with your loved one(s). In fact, this is precisely the very romance that the modern world lacks so much. Judge for yourself - the speed of life has reached a point where we no longer notice the beauty around. This is not our fault - modern technology, globalization, and social networks all contribute to the effect ... Even so, it is in ordinary acts of beauty that real miracles are stored.

Go-Karting Race

Racing attracts both children and adults. Such a gift would be interesting not only to experienced drivers, but also to beginners - one doesn’t even need a driver’s license to drive! All you need - instructions, suits, helmets, and the actual cars - is provided to you by the organization. A gift certificate for karting is a wonderful gift for a couple, parents or children. This sport has no limits and is a time to feel the excitement, speed, and exhilaration of a real race.

Horseback Riding Trip

Horseback riding is a great opportunity to relax from the bustle of the city. Everyone can appreciate the pleasant experience of spending some time in nature without the noise of everyday life, and those who are interested in animals or nature marvel at the beauty and magnificence of the horses themselves. When choosing where to purchase a gift certificate, look for a location with healthy, groomed horses and an interesting trail - some places offer a field or dirt arena to ride on, while others provide a forest path that can span miles and miles.

Photo Shoot

Photo shoot gift certificates have been, are, and always will be a cool present for relatives, friends and colleagues! This is because a photo shoot is such a universal gift - it will not be an unnecessary load left to gather dust on a shelf, it will not wither like flowers, will not be eaten like a cake, and can always be put to use.Furthermore, it is something that can be gifted to virtually anybody, and for any holiday (such as Christmas, New Year’s, and an anniversary or birthday). Another way to gift a photoshoot is to invite the photographer to the celebration or holiday itself, creating a collection of special photos to commemorate the occasion.
