You will find here some of the best kids’ experience gifts we could find that no doubt your recipient will love you for. Gift buying as a parent can sometimes feel like a never-ending process.  Just when you think you are finally ahead of the game, yet another date reminder flashes up on your phone or a crumpled-up party invite is pulled triumphantly from a school bag.  Between family, extended family, friends and kids’ birthday parties finding new and interesting gift ideas from your local store often begins to feel impossible.  

One of the easiest ways to solve the, and become hugely popular in the process, is to look at gifting an ‘experience’ as your present.  .

  • Family pass to an Escape Room
  • Kayaking tours
