Last updated on Tuesday 23 April 2024

Looking for experience gift ideas for Christmas? This handy list features some of the best Bristol gift experiences and experience days in Bristol for him, her, them or your favourite couple!

Gift experiences are a great present for the person that has everything, the perfect gift for the loved one with a favourite passion or hobby, or simply something nice to give if you are a fan of unusual gifts.

Support small, local businesses whilst ticking off each name on your gift list this Christmas 2022. Discover experience gifts for wine lovers with a little more spice than your traditional cheese and wine hampers, find wellbeing gifts for the yogi in your life, and pick up brilliant secret Santa gifts for even the most difficult colleague!

One of the hardest things about Christmas is how overwhelming the whole gifting experience can be. Trawling through busy shops, picking gifts that 'will do' just to tick another person off your list, waiting for parcels to arrive in time, and also hoping you've chosen the right gift that will not go to waste. This is where experience days come in.

Experience gift days and experience gift vouchers have instant delivery and are a sustainable gifting option that will not go in landfill. You can be as general or as niche with your gifting as you like, from beer tasting tours to sheep herding experiences, which means you can genuinely find the perfect gift for each of your loved ones.

Below you will find a inspiration list to get the creative gifting juices flowing! A selection of experience days for him, experience gifts for her, thoughtful gifts for your fave non-binary person and fun experiences for couples to do together! 

Here's some of my top Bristol experience days gifts for everyone on your list, no matter what their passion or interest:
