Buyagift - The Perfect Present | Review

9 September 2019

4 comments
Disclosure - We received a Buyagift experience in return for a feature on our blog. The idea for this post was my own as is all thoughts, opinions and photographs. This post contains affiliate links.

A wrapped present
We are those people that when it comes to birthdays or Christmas we never want anything. We really struggle to think of something and in the end we usually ask for a voucher. Over the past few years we have asked experiences vouchers such as Buyagift and for people like us it really is the perfect present. We have selected some of  our favourite experiences that we have enjoyed so far using Buyagift.

Drayton Manor Theme Park


Theme Parks
If you know us then you will know that we are quite the thrill seekers and are usually head to theme park at least once a month. This Summer we headed to Drayton Manor which was perfect for both big and little J.

As there is an 11 year age gap it can be tricky sometimes to find somewhere that is suitable for both their age ranges however Drayton Manor had something for everyone.

The park has lots of thrill rides suitable for big J including Shockwave and Maelstrom and little J loved Thomas Land which has lots of rides based around the popular character Thomas The Tank Engine.

The theme park also has a 15 acre zoo which was fun for all of us and a 4D cinema too.

Our voucher included two adults and two children with lunch to Drayton Manor Theme Park


Prezzo Restaurant


Dining Out
On a recent day out to Southport, John and I ended our day with a trip to Prezzo. Using our voucher was easy we just made a reservation online and we were sent a redemption code to hand to the waiter when we had finished.

On arrival we were handed the Buyagift set menu which has so much to choose from. John started with the Garlic Bread with Mozzarella and I had the Tomato Bruschetta.

For our mains we both went for Spaghetti Bolognese. I assumed as this was a Buyagift menu that the portion size may be smaller but it wasn't.

We both saved some room for desserts. I went for Honey Smash Cheesecake whilst John chose his favourite Tiramisu.

The voucher was for a Three Course Meal With Wine For Two at Prezzo


View from the Shard


Days Out
We like to go to London at least once a year to visit the London tourist attractions. One of our favourite attractions is viewing the London Skyline from The Shard.

View from the Shard
Once at the top of The Shard you can get a great view of St Pauls Cathedral, The River Thames, The London Eye and if you look closely you can also spot Wembley too.

There was no need to book beforehand for this experience and the voucher we used was View From the Shard - Two Adults and Two Children

Go Ape
Adventure
I managed to keep my feet firmly on the ground for this experience however I did enjoy watching both John and big J making their way through the trees on Go Ape.

Go Ape is a tree top high ropes adventure that has you climbing across obstacles and rope ladders through the trees.

Once they had finished their course they used a zip wire to fly head back to the ground.

Go Ape
This experience was really fun for them both and we did enjoy watching them as they challenged themselves to reach the end. The experience we used was a Tree Top Adventure at Go Ape



These are just a few of our favourite experiences we have done so far but our list is huge and we still have so many more we want to do. There are so many experiences to choose from with Buyagift and if you are unsure on a what experience to choose you can always buy a Smartbox which gives you 1000's of experiences to choose from. If you don't like your chosen experience Buyagift offers free exchanges and once you pick your new experience you can have your voucher sent direct to your email.

 As it is Father's Day soon I know most of you will be thinking about what to get your dad or dad-in-law for the special day.

So if you are like me and struggle to find the perfect gift then I am so excited to tell you that I have teamed up with Buyagift this month to give one lucky winner the chance to win an amazing prize just in time for Father's Day.

Valentines Day Gift Ideas

3 February 2016

I love Valentines day and whilst I don't feel the need to run out and buy lots of gifts or receive any I do like the idea of celebrating 'being in love'  

Daddy and I have been together for 16 years and I know we still love each other the way we did when we first started dating, if not more. When we were younger Valentines Day seemed more important. I'm not sure why but we really used to make a big effort. Nice gifts, flowers, chocolates and even a trip to Dublin. Now we don't need all that, maybe because we are parents we would be just as happy with a hour or two to ourselves.

For those who would like to spoil their loved ones this Valentines Day I have a few ideas for you.

I am so excited to be hosting an Advent Calendar style giveaway this year. When I used to enter competitions I loved advent giveaways. The idea of an advent competition is every day a new door on the virtual advent calendar would open and you had the chance to win the prize behind that door. I am so lucky to have worked with some amazing brands and companies this year on my blog. I am so grateful to those who have offered me 24 prizes so that I can host my very own Advent Calendar giveaway. Its very simple each day from midnight - 11:59pm a door on my virtual calendar will open. The prize will be revealed and you can enter  to win that prize using the giveaway app below. Once the door closes at 11:59pm the giveaway is over and the winner will be chosen and announced.

Father's Day Gift Ideas

11 June 2015

Father's Day will soon be here and if I am honest I haven't got a clue what we are buying Daddy yet. I usually sway to something related to technology because that is what Daddy loves. I know he would love an Apple iWatch but he might have to ask Father Christmas for that.
I do love buying little 'Daddy' gifts too such as teddies and mugs but we have so many and like I said recently about buying anniversary gifts there must come a point where you have to stop. 
Here are just a few choices that I may consider for Daddy.
