Best Gifts for Couples

Its that time of the year again, the time of giving, and with Christmas just around the corner what are the best gifts for couples? What do you get for the couple who has everything? Or to the couple who are trying to be eco friendly and consume less? The couple who need a break from the kids and to spoil each other on a romantic mini getaway!

Being a full-time wanderer I love the idea of experience gifting! Rather than buying more materialistic items that you never know if they are going to be a hit or a miss, why not opt for a unique foodie experience or relaxing couples massage you know they are going to love!

Who wouldn’t love to be wine and dined and whisked away on a hot air balloon ride! Here are our best experience Christmas gifts to give to couples!

A Unique Foodie Experience

One of our favourite gifts to get a couple is a unique culinary experience. Think 5-course degustation where you let your senses run wild with an array dishes made from award-winning chefs, a luxe high tea with a view or perhaps a sunset dinner cruise overlooking Sydney harbour will win them over!

RedBalloon also offers a special Lunch and Wine made by iconic Luke Nguyen at the beautiful Botanic House or immerse among the vines of one of Hunter Valley’s oldest vineyards and enjoy a romantic picnic spectacular views. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with a good feed, a wine and an amazing view!

A Fun Little Getaway or Staycation

Who doesn’t love it when you get a surprise getaway! Logistics may be tricky with this one but luckily RedBalloon allows you to grab e-gift cards!

Whether it’s a staycation, mini-break or unique overnighter,  help your friends escape their everyday routine and rejuvenate. Support Aussie local businesses and discover sleepy rural towns, indulge in boutique hotels or camp in the wilderness, whatever the experience the couple is sure to thank you for their much needed time away!

A Memorable Experience

RedBalloon is known for its wide breadth of unforgettable experiences and enriching gifts, if you are unsure which one best suits the couple why not grab them an e-gift card. They are then able to choose an activity they are currently interested in.

There is so much to choose from including learning to fly a helicopter, the maze of an escape room or they could get a bit adventurous with a flying trapeze class or paintball or even go abseiling in the great outdoors.

A Class or Workshop

I love the idea of gifting or experiencing a class or workshop! I feel we kind of suppress the need for ‘learning’ as we grow older but it’s so important for our development of self.

I love learning new things and have seen a lot of great classes pop up lately from cooking classes to the wine and painting class to the on-trend pottery classes where you can walk away with cute trinkets you MADE yourself for your home. There is even a class to learn things like how to make barista coffee, perfume, fermentation, candle making and something I feel everyone should do at least once is learn to surf classes!

A Wine Tasting and Hot Air Balloon Ride

Hot air ballooning is a bucket-list-worthy experience for everyone as they’ll enjoy breathtaking views during their tranquil flight. There is something so romantic about a hot air balloon ride and imaging the joy your friends will feel when they are 5000 feet in the air, floating blissfully above the vineyards or city skylines.

For a couple of hundred dollars, you can send a loved one up in a hot air balloon overlooking the water, wine country or city skylines. Just be sure they aren’t afraid of heights!

A relaxing massage and blissful day of pampering is a beautiful and connecting experience to gift a couple.  RedBalloon offers a wide range of spa and wellness experiences.

Indulge with a full body massage followed by a detoxing Sauna or take things outdoors with a unique hot springs getaway!
