Perfect Gifts for Children
Finding the perfect gift for your children can be a challenge with a seemingly endless list of toys and gadgets to choose from. Rather than buying them a traditional present, why not treat your kids to a gift experience they’ll never forget. The memories last far longer and it might be something that the whole family can enjoy. We’ve put together 5 ideas, to take all the stress out of finding a gift they’ll love.
Harry Potter Studio Tour
Enjoy a magical day out at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London, where you’ll delve into the world of Harry Potter. This exciting walking tour takes you on a behind-the-scenes look at some of the iconic sets from Hogwarts Great Hall to Diagon Alley and the Gryffindor common room. Props that were used in the film are also showcased and you’ll learn more about the film’s special effects. It makes for a one-of-a-kind wizarding adventure.
Visit one of the country’s theme parks for a hair-raising and fun filled day out. Thorpe Park in Surrey is one of the biggest and best with over 30 rides and endless attractions to explore. There are also some great festive inspired events such as London’s Winter Wonderland which could be the ideal Christmas present. It’s a fairy-tale setting with ice skating, a helter skelter and thrilling rollercoasters.
The sweet treats and delicious sandwiches that make up an indulgent afternoon tea are something that the whole family can enjoy. There are many places to choose from but you’ll find some of the best in the capital with many offering a reduced rate for younger adults. The Orangery at Kensington Palace is one such venue which features both outdoor and spacious indoor seating with high chairs available upon request. They’ll love the signature chocolate cake and you can marvel at the grandeur of this 18th century garden pavilion.
Football Stadium Tour
If your children are football mad, this could be the gift experience that they’ll cherish for years to come. All the premier league football clubs offer guided tours, providing an intimate look behind-the-scenes. You’ll visit the home & away changing rooms, the dugout areas, press room and much more. Some top stadiums such as Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge have their own museum where you can catch a glimpse of gleaming trophy cabinets.
Visit the Zoo
Great Britain is home to many impressive zoos from Chester in the north to the 36 acre conservation centre in London and the sprawling parklands of Norfolk’s Banham Zoo. For a unique day out, head to one of the finest small zoos in the country, Drusillas Park in East Sussex. Here the children are allowed to get close to the friendlier animals with a petting zoo. There’s also play areas and a train ride which circles the zoo.
Gift experiences can be far more exciting than a conventional present. Try one of these exciting day’s out and you’ll create memories to last a lifetime.
