What are the best gifts 2020?
These days people tend to have a lot of stuff. So, when the time for gift giving comes around, you probably want to avoid giving them even more of it, particularly when you’re not sure if they’ll use it or whether they have it already. The great thing about experiences is they come in many forms and are a great way for people to get out and have some fun. There are adventures for all kinds of people and amazing things to do Australia wide. Don’t just take our word for it, browse our site and you’ll see thousands of high quality gift options to choose from. The sheer number of experiences is good news for you as a gift giver too, because there’s something for almost all budgets.
Whether it’s driving, flying, land adventures, watersports or gourmet experiences, the best gifts depend on who you’re buying for and how much you want to spend, but if it’s a real show stopper of a present you want then how about one of the following popular options?
Amazing views and the thrill of speeding across some of Australia’s most impressive landscapes are guaranteed with our helicopter rides. For a real bucket list adventure, these flights are hard to beat. Take your pick of location, from sensational Sydney Harbour to iconic Uluru and Kata Tjuta.
For a flight like no other it has to be a hot air balloon ride. Floating with the wind over stunning scenery is an experience we think everyone should try at least once. It’s an incredible way to start a day and can be made even more special when rounded off with a gourmet breakfast and souvenir photos to take home.
Speeding around a race track in a real race car. It’s the stuff dreams are made of! Bringing them to life is easy with our huge range of V8 driving and hot laps options Australia wide. With expert instruction, it’s a gift any thrill seeker will love.
For adrenaline junkies it doesn’t get much better than a skydive. There’s nothing quite like the rush of freefall! Add in an some awesome views (how about a tandem skydive over the beach or seemingly endless vineyards?) and you’ve got all the ingredients for the experience of a lifetime. Buying for a first time skydiver? Don’t worry, they’re in safe hands with highly professional experts to guide them every step of the way.
What to buy for those who have everything?
Finding the right present can sometimes prove a challenge, particularly for people who seem to have it all. So instead of trying to find them a ‘thing’ they’ll like, give them an adventure. We think the best gifts are experiences, as no matter how many ‘things’ people have, they can’t possibly have done everything. Some people will love the chance to take a break from the day to day and do something different. Giving them an experience gift is the perfect excuse for them to just that, at a time that suits them.
Looking for unique gift? How about sending them indoor skydiving? This awesome all-weather activity is available at iFly locations in Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Brisbane and Perth and is suitable for everyone aged three and up, making it one of the best family gifts for 2020! With pro instruction they can step inside a state-of-the-art wind tunnel and feel the rush of freefall without the need to go up in a plane.
When it comes to unusual gifts, giving someone the chance to learn to fly has to be a contender. With professional instruction they can take the controls of an aircraft and bring their pilot fantasies to life. Take a look at what’s on offer for a variety of plane and helicopter options, as well as flights with aerobatics included.
Maybe their favourite holiday is Halloween, or maybe they just love a good scare. Either way, our range of ghost tours are an unusual gift that are best enjoyed together. Prepare for spooky tales and sights in some of Australia’s most haunted locations.
Have they got a head for heights? An abseiling experience is the perfect way to put it to the test, with awesome views and excitement (plus expert instruction!) guaranteed. It’s a great gift for someone who’d appreciate getting out to do something, rather than receiving more stuff.
