Are Experience Gifts a No for Xmas 2020?

Ask a Question

I love giving my close family experience gifts like tickets to a show, weekend away, spa day etc... Obviously with the uncertainty with covid I’m reluctant to book such things so I need some ideas. What sorts of bigger/main gifts are you planning on getting your loved ones?

What do you think of this?

I’ve always loved giving these types of gifts in the past but will be avoiding them this year to be on the safe side. I think hampers of someones favourite treats etc is a nice gift, filled with things you know they’ll like (their favourite chocolate, sweets, alcohol, maybe a book and some other bits) or personalised gifts like photo gifts 🙂

Just give 'em money instead, then. If that's how you feel.

My sister the other day came over for dinner rather than I go over, and this was because she's already so exhausted over the monotonous feeling of always being at home (when she's not working) that something as simple as this made her feel good.

Point is, people are becoming dead on the inside and they'll want a way to escape it. Even if it's only temporary.

She doesn't drive so that's worse for her, but I've lend her my driver's learner book as well as the program so it's up to her if she wants to take the driver's license down the road. Driving is the easiest part, provided you know the definition of the symbols.

Lots of places are offering a full refund guarantee if you are unable to use the voucher for a break eg. Travelzoo, so I have still bought a couple. I have also bought jewellery and I have arranged a Tesco delivery of goodies for several friends on Christmas week!

No, this year DO NOT buy vouchers etc. Too many businesses have or will go bust leaving all outstanding vouchers worthless. Better to give an iou saying " in..... (Insert month) we will....( Insert fun outing). If you can hand make the card even better. At least then your purchase will be safe

Auntielettie that’s a great idea. I do remember hearing Martin Lewis advise against getting vouchers this year a while ago
