The best last minute gift from Red Letter Days

I am sure I am not the only one who leaves buying presents until the last moment. There are always so many things to do, like school runs, tidying up, working, going to the gym, watching TV, scrolling social media (ha ha) and so on, until you realise that you are traipsing the shops the day before the big day and sweating profusely running form place to place because nothing is just quite right. 

Yep. Been there, done that.

Luckily, Red Letter Days has given me the ultimate last minute gift to give away to one of you guys and asked me to write a bit about the prize. The prize, their Days Out Together Gift Box is pretty much the easiest last minute gift ever, and offers a wide variety of choice. The Gift Box is worth £99.99 and you can choose from over 2,000 experiences across UK (and 100 in Europe too!). It can be delivered in a gift box, or alternatively, for the worst procrastinators amongst us who need it now and not later, you can print an instant eVoucher. A total life (or rather, party) saver!

I loved that the Days Out Together Gift Box is about experiences, and something you can share with a loved one. As an adult you tend to buy yourself most of the things you need, and realistically, there aren't a huge amount of things you want. Experiences, not things is a mantra repeated by more and more people. It is a real treat to do something out of the ordinary, to try something new, to see something exciting. And as much as a lovely treat a gift such as a luxurious shower gel set may be, it is the experiences that you will remember in the long run.

There are experiences across UK you can book with the Gift Box, but just in London there are already a huge amount of things to try. A kayak tour on Regents Canal with a qualified instructor, tickets to see the Wicked musical and a meal for two, or a three course meal on a jazz cruise are just a few small examples of what is on offer. Across the UK there were spa days, hotel stays, and outdoor experiences like Segway rides or quad bike rides, so there is something for everyone.

We went for a visit to The Shard and a meal, and it was absolutely perfect. We loved our visit to The Shard, and booking it using the Red Letter Days voucher was simple and easy, exactly what you would want of a gift - everything taken care of!

So, if you are a serial procrastinator like I am, you should definitely keep in mind the experiences Gift Box by Red Letter Days can offer. It just might save your skin the next time you are in a tight party spot!

Enter the giveaway below, UK entries and over 18 only.

P.S. Don't miss my other giveaway for a luxury merino wool cashmere baby blanket from Willow and Cole!
