I'm a little bit bah-humbug about Christmas this year. I fear that time is running out to buy gifts for friends and family, and the thought of buying gifts in haste, that my friends and family may not want or need, leaves me feeling irritated. I'd love to make gifts for my friends and family as I did last year, but fear I will not have the time.
I've been considering ordering some sort of service or activity as gifts, rather than a physical object. Something like a tour, or a voucher for an activity might be a nice idea?
I've been perusing Groupon, as an option. Groupon is a 'deal-based' website, offering discounted items, and vouchers for services. More on Groupon here.
Here are a few ideas:
Hepburn Springs Spa Retreat
With breakfast, wine tour, spa, food and drink vouchers
$169 discounted from $400
Ok so this one might be a bit extravagant for a Christmas gift, but sounds nice doesn't it!
Three hour swim with Dolphins
With wild dolphins and seals with Moonraker Charters, Sorrento
$79 for one person, or $149 for two, discounted from $350
Mr RF and I went on this trip 5 years ago, and had the best time.
Two-hour Kiteboarding Lesson
Including all equipment, $69 for one person, or $110 for two, with The Zu Boardsports
Great for a sporty / beach loving friend or family member
Groupon is not just limited to Melbourne, there are offers nationwide, with many deals on products as well as activities. A complete list found here.
Readers, what are your thoughts on buying a voucher for an activity as a gift, rather than an item that may not be wanted, or needed?
