What are experience gifts?
Experiences come in many forms, from a high-flying helicopter flight or hot air ballooning to brewery tours and attractions. At Adrenaline, we have adventures for every type of man, so whatever his age or tastes, we’re sure to have something that would make the perfect gift for him.
Giving an experience is the ideal present for men who are difficult to buy for, or seem to have everything they need already. After all, most men have a lot of stuff, but there’s no way they’ve experienced everything. Forget wandering around the shops trying to find something, do your shopping online at Adrenaline and take the stress out of it. Experiences are an ideal gift for almost any occasion, whether it’s a birthday, Christmas, anniversary or just to show you care.
What are the best experience gifts for men?
It’s true, the best gift ideas for men depend on his personality, but some experiences just seem to go down a treat with all kinds of guys. So, whether it’s a gift for your husband, boyfriend, dad, brother or any other man in your life, here’s a few ideas that’ll really put a smile on his face:
Bucket list gifts for men
Tandem skydiving: If he’s the adventurous sort then it doesn’t get much better than leaping from a plane at up to 15,000ft. We have tandem skydives at some of the most scenic locations in Australia, from the Great Ocean Road to Uluru.
V8 driving and hot laps: Our V8 experiences are always a winner. Give him the gift of getting behind the wheel of a V8 race car and pushing his skills to new levels (with the help of expert instruction) as he tears around the racetrack.
Helicopter scenic flight: Combine thrills with awesome views from above on a helicopter scenic flight. Take off from locations across Australia, taking in cities, famous sights, coastline and more. A real bucket list favourite and a fantastic gift.
Learn to fly: A flying lesson can be more affordable than you’d expect. With expert instruction he’ll take the controls of an aircraft and fly high above taking in the views. Who wouldn’t want to be able to say they’d flown a plane?
What do you give a man who has everything?
It can be difficult enough shopping for men as it, but it’s even harder when the man seems to have everything he wants already or just isn’t giving you any clues about what might be useful. Don’t resort to getting him any old gift just for the sake of it, give him the chance to get out and have some fun.
Let’s be honest, many of us lead busy lives, so being given an excuse to give your normal routine a break and have some fun is the greatest gift of all. We have gifts that are ideal for giving him some “me time”, as well as those that are made for enjoying a couple, as friends or as a family. So, no matter what his hobbies and interests, there’s sure to be an experience he’ll love somewhere on site. Here are a few gift ideas for men he may enjoy:
Brewery and beer tours: There are some really great breweries, bars and pubs in Australia at the moment, so why not let him get out there and sample them? Skip the local for this one and send him off on a tour to learn, taste and relax.
BBQ School: A barbie is an Aussie institution, so there’s never any harm in taking your skills to the next level. Send him off to BBQ school and he’ll learn a thing or two and have plenty of chance to enjoy his tasty food too. Just make sure you score an invite for his next BBQ.
Golf lessons: Whether he’s already a regular at the golf course or an absolute beginner, our golf lessons and experiences are sure to be fun. We’ve everything from lessons with a PGA Pro to indoor virtual golf at locations around the nation.
Fishing: Let him relax and unwind with one of our fishing experiences. Our fishing range is growing in popularity all the time, taking in some of the best fishing spots in Australia and catering for all ability levels.
Quad biking: There’s something particularly exhilarating about speeding around on a quad bike. It’s a great to go off-road exploring and can be done in locations as varied as Port Stephens and
Is an experience a good gift?
Call us biased, but we think experiences are the best gift of all. Material possessions come and go, but a great experience can stick with a person forever. We have all kinds of great days out and things to do around Australia to choose from, so take a look at the range and see what’s available.
Narrowing down your search is easy. Use the filters to sort by state or price range, or (if you have something in mind) use the search bar to find it quickly and easily. Stuck for ideas and feeling a little overwhelmed by the sheer amount of choice? Don’t panic! Try our Adventure Gift Finder and we’ll present you some tailored options suited to his tastes and your budget.
Why gift an experience?
As we’ve mentioned, most men have a lot of stuff and even if the one you’re buying for doesn’t, you can never quite be sure if he’ll appreciate more “things”. Experiences are almost universally appealing. We’re not saying everyone will like skydiving, but browse our full range and you’ll see a broad range of activities and things to do for almost every kind of person.
Another one of the great things about gifting an experience is the flexibility it offers. If you buy a voucher for an experience it has three years’ validity, giving the recipient plenty of time to select a time and date to enjoy it.
In the event they decide they’d like to do something else they can use the voucher credit towards any of the experiences onsite here at Adrenaline. So, if you buy them a brewery tour and they’d rather head to BBQ School, it’s no big deal.
If you’re really not sure which experience he’d like, or you’re running short of time, go for one of our gift vouchers. These have five years’ validity and can be used to buy any experience on site. We think they’re much more thoughtful than cash alone, which can seem a bit impersonal and not much like a gift at all. With an Adrenaline gift voucher you’re giving them the opportunity to take a look through our experiences and pick out something they’d like to try.
