Meaningful Gift Ideas #4

by | Dec 14, 2018 | Events

Giving the gift of an experience is incredibly meaningful.

It’s one of my all-time favourite things to give because it means spending time with your loved one. Experiences create memories that last forever.

Here are some fun ideas in Melbourne! #beautifulmelbourne – I’m sure you will find most of these ideas in your own city too.

Moonlight Cinema at the Royal Botanic Gardens. Relax with your loved ones in nature and enjoy an entertaining movie too. One of my favourite things to do!

Take a Punt Tour at the Royal Botanic GardensA punt is a flat-bottomed boat designed for shallow water. You can now cruise around the Royal Botanic Gardens lake in a little punt boat and enjoy the view of one of the world’s finest gardens!

Have a laugh and go to your local comedy destination or the fabulous Comedy Festival in Melbourne. Laughter really is the best medicine and such a great gift for any friend or family member. When was the last time you had a good belly laugh?

Visit your local gallery or museum. I love galleries and museums. It’s such an inspirational environment filled with creativity and history. I also find it’s really cool in summer or warm in winter, so you’re guaranteed a seasonal ambience, a nice bathroom, a place to eat and drink and some easy entertainment.

Enjoy a picnic at your local garden. Picnics are fun and relaxing for all the family. Put the phones away and play some games like cricket or Bocce. Relax on the grass and breath in the fresh air. Such a grounding experience to be shared with the young and the young at heart!

Take a road trip. Most of us Aussies at my age have fond memories of family road trips. Have you tried one with a friend? It’s one of the greatest gifts of all. Time together in the car, playing tunes, sharing stories. Arriving at the destination for lunch or afternoon tea. #funfunfun

I’m off to plan some experiences. Enjoy creating too!
