Why buy short break experience gifts for friends and family

Ask anyone what their ambitions are, or dreams for the future, or what they’d do if they won a lottery, and the chances are that travel would be close to the top of the list. Since human beings became capable of stringing a few tree trunks together and scooping water with a coconut shell we have explored the limits of our world and beyond. Travel unifies us, it fills us with new knowledge, it heals the soul. And we’re not just talking epic road trips, it could be a weekend city break with friends, or a week on the beach with the kids. No surprise then, that giving short break gifts to your friends and family is likely to be a big hit.

Ideal for handing over on special occasions from birthdays to anniversaries, on Mother’s day or as graduation gifts, these gift cards will put a smile on anyone’s face. They can be exchanged against one of hundreds of fantastic experiences across the world, from bungee jumps to dinner cruises, guided brewery tours to snorkeling trips. These short break experiences really are Wow-gifts. 

And if you’re new to experience gifts, don’t worry, it’s not at all complicated. For the giver, you just need to select the package you want from the various Tinggly gift cards available, according to the occasion or your budget. You purchase securely online, pop in a personal note to the recipient such as ‘Congratulations on your graduation’, and that’s all there is to it.

Gift cards can be sent anywhere in the world, either to yourself or directly to the recipient. They arrive in a stylish presentation box but, for convenience, can also be sent by email - another reason why these short break experiences inevitably result in such good travel gifts.

As for the lucky recipient - they can then either start choosing what they want to do immediately if they have a getaway on the horizon already, or put their gift voucher aside for a rainy day. Tinggly short break experiences have no expiration dates - they’re as good to use in five years time as they are tomorrow. 

Some of us find it easy to track down the perfect gift for others. Some of us find it a lot harder. But when you give someone the gift of choice, the pressure is off because satisfaction is guaranteed.

Short break gift ideas include:

  • Horse riding tours on beaches and through beautiful countryside
  • Romantic dinner cruises for two in cities around the world
  • Foodie tours of cities and markets led by knowledgeable local guides
  • Scenic sightseeing tours by helicopters, 4x4s and yachts

The best short break gifts for those you love

Research shows that the anticipation leading up to an experience, and the memories associated with it afterwards, not only outweigh those of a material item but also last much longer. Growing numbers of people consider experience gifts to be desirable. But beyond being more satisfying and easy to use, these short break gifts are sustainable too.

Next time you need to get someone a gift, give stories, not stuff. Short break experiences will ensure they have plenty to talk about when they get home.
