This is the ultimate same day gifts for her list.
Men – this is a page you’re going to want to bookmark. This page is what is going to get you points from your Mum, your wife, your girlfriend, your aunt, grandma or your sister every birthday, anniversary, Christmas and Valentine’s day. This is a list of the ultimate pampering experiences available to all of us in Britain. We’ve searched all over the web to compile this list, so you won’t find it anywhere else. This list has been cross checked with all the lovely ladies in my life, and each gift has been carefully scrutinised over before making it to the final cut. Best of all, most of these gifts are experience vouchers which are printable, so you can even order them for same day delivery.
1) Pamper her with a Health Spa break for two
This package is a health spa break for two with an overnight stay. Choose a twin or double room and get unlimited access to all the spa’s facilities, including the swimming pool, sauna, steam room and other heat related treatments. Most locations also have a gym with exercise classes available as well. Each package comes with 2 beauty treatments each and includes a dinner and breakfast as well! Select your location on order, or let your loved one choose the location herself by buying the choice voucher, where she can login and select the best location. These spas are located in Edinburgh, Liphook, Tring, Henlow and Ashby-de-la-Zouch.
2) Relaxation hour massage
Treat her to a one hour massage in selected UK locations. Massages are all about de-stressing, detoxing and relaxing, and this is certainly what she will get with this voucher. Massages are all about individual needs, so each experience starts with an initial consultation to decide on which parts of the body need to be worked on to relieve any pain and anxiety. Locations include Edinburgh, Huntingdon, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Haslemere, Nottingham or Reading.
3) A delicious 6 course sharing menu for two at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, London
One of our most popular gifts, this 6 course sharing menu for two is bound to make her super happy, especially if it involves a trip down to London! You’ll each be given a glass of bubbly on arrival before you begin your incredibly tasty six course meal. And if you’re not too full to move afterwards, the package also includes a tour around the Fifteen kitchen, where you get to watch all the chefs in action. A steal for just £150, and she’s bound to love it.
4) Give her the royal treatment at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir
While this experience certainly isn’t the cheapest, we can pretty much guarantee this is going to be a good time. This package includes a six course menu at the two Michelin starred restaurant, where you can then retreat to an overnight stay in a Junior Suite. Wake up to a provided full English breakfast and relax in the grounds with plenty to see: a two acre veggie and herb garden, an English water garden with natural springs as well as a Japanese tea garden. Before you go, you’ll also be given a copy of Raymond’s cookery book, ‘Foolproof French Cookery’.
5) A weekend spa package for two at the Mayfair Hotel
What could be better than an overnight stay at the Mayfair? How about a luxury spa package to go along with that? This package allows you access to the spa at the hotel, including the relaxation room, aroma steam room, the herbal sauna and heated loungers. And to top it off, you get a 60 minute treatment as well – choose from a range of facial treatments, body treatments, manicures, pedicures or a deeply relaxing massage. Sleep off your incredibly tough day in a luxurious bedroom and wake up to a full English breakfast, served in your room or in the restaurant.
6) A five course lunch with Champagne at Gordon Ramsay’s Petrus
If she’s more of a Gordon fan than a Jamie fan, this is the experience for you. This voucher will take you both, for just £149, to Gordon Ramsay’s Petrus. Enjoy a 5 course lunch, accompanied by champagne in the heart of London. This is the perfect anniversary gift and will be memory that is bound to be cherished for a long, long time.
7) Dinner Cruise on the Thames for two
Having lived in London for five years now and never having actually been on a cruise down the Thames, this is still one of my dreams to fulfil. Step onto the boat and enjoy the glass roof while you sail past historical monuments such as Big Ben, the House of Parliament and the London Eye. You’ll both be treated to a freshly prepared menu, and once dinner is done you can walk around the boat and have a drink at the stern watching the city lights.
8) A delicious meal followed by a magical theatre night in the West End
Treat yourselves to a wonderful night out in London, starting with a fantastic two course dinner at a range of restaurants, then walk over to collect your top price tickets and experience London’s West End up close and personal. Theatre tickets include We Will Rock You, Billy Elliot, Jersey Boys, Woman in Black, Wicked or the Phantom of the Opera. Meals are booked for 6pm, with shows generally starting between 7:30 – 8:00 pm and finishing around 10pm.
9) A hot air ballooning experience for two
For a more daring day of relaxation, how about a beautiful hot air balloon ride where she can soar up in the sky and look down at the world below her? This package can be taken at over 100 different launch sites in the UK, so take your pick on what view you’d like to experience best! The day starts off with a safety session with the instructor. Once you’ve done this you can place yourselves into the basket and soar up 3000 feet in the air. Watch beautiful rolling hills and countryside beneath you as you gently glide through the sky. A celebratory glass of champagne will be given to you when you land, and you’ll get a certificate of completion as well for this momentous event.
10) A boutique Escape for two, available in over 60 locations around Britain
This package is a best seller, and allows her to escape and enjoy a beautiful boutique hotel for the night. Choose from over 60 different locations, from the Lake District to Scotland, from Cornwall to Wales. A free upgrade on the room is granted on arrival (subject to availability).
