AD | Contains gifted experiences and tickets Last week we took a trip to one of our neighbouring counties (Suffolk) for a 2 night stay in Ipswich. We have had a hard couple of months so all of us was looking forward to some quality time away together as a family to explore somewhere new and exciting! We live 10 minutes away from a train station so we can get to loads of great places with Greater Anglia. We were able to get to Ipswich in less than an hour and a half and it’s only 40 minutes away from
AD | Includes gifted item John’s birthday was a little over a week ago and I wanted to do something really special. Buy A Gift helped us out by sending us for an Overnight Family Break In London At A Novotel Hotel. We love going to London as a family as there is always so much for Erin to do and it means we get to spend some real quality time together. We have previously stayed at the Novotel London Blackfriars hotel and loved it so this time we wanted to stay somewhere different and chose to stay at the Waterloo branch
AD | Includes gifted item Before going on our family holiday to Majorca we ended up having a couple of days in London first. Engineering works on the train lines meant that train tickets were much cheaper on the Saturday rather than the Sunday so we decided to stay an extra night. However, this also meant that we needed a hotel for a night and while there is so much choice in London I like to stay in a chain where possible so I know what to expect. This time, we booked a Overnight Family Break in London at a
If you didn’t already know, this week is National Tea Week and Saturday 21st April is National Tea Day. John is a big tea drinker and my sister who is living with us at the moment has a pretty impressive tea collection from all over the world. It’s funny really, how when people think of the UK they think of afternoon tea and people with their pinky fingers high in the air while drinking a nice cup of tea. Buy A Gift got in touch recently to share some really interesting information about Britain and how people drink their tea!
Buy A Gift is one of my first stops when it comes to buying presents. Buy A Gift sells a MASSIVE selection of gift experiences and gift boxes to suit all needs and preferences. I get sick of buying people the same things over and over again and I’m sure they do too! Buy A Gift allows me to buy something a bit different but also give the recipient options too. Some of my favourite gifts from Buy A Gift are the Smartboxes. These boxes are fantastic if you’re not sure what the recipient might like. We recently reviewed the
With Valentine’s Day falling on a Thursday this year it means that John will be working and Erin will be at nursery so I’ll be spending the majority of the day on my own. So, when Buy A Gift got in touch to talk to us about their experiences perfect for Valentine’s Day we picked a three course meal at Prezzo to enjoy ourselves. My sister nicely offered to take Erin to the bowling alley in Norwich to play on the arcades while John and I shared our very first child free meal in two years! When you order an
Sometimes when it comes to big occasions people have their go to places. For me, this is Buy A Gift. Instead of maybe giving a present that you’re not sure about or that someone might not like, there are loads of options for experiences instead. For Valentine’s Day, there is the Fun Together Smartbox and I think it’s perfect! The Fun Together Smartbox is a bit different to some other experiences available on Buy A Gift because you’re not purchasing one particular experience. Instead, you buy a voucher where you can choose from over 2000 different experiences. I think this
Just before Christmas I spoke about Buy A Gift in the gift guide for travel lovers. We were lucky enough to receive two complimentary experiences through Buy A Gift, one of which was one night stay a the The Links Country Park Hotel in West Runton, Norfolk. When you order an experience through Buy A Gift you are sent a lovely presentation card with information about the experience as well as a code to redeem online. The great thing about Buy A Gift experiences is that you can exchange a lot of them online if it isn’t quite suitable for
