Tell us: have you given or received an ‘experience gift’?

We would like to hear from people who have moved away from exchanging material presents

With the climate crisis and sustainability at the forefront of people’s minds this year, many are likely to eschew material Christmas presents for experience gifts this year.

Demand for experience-based gifts, which range from restaurant vouchers to massages and pottery classes, had been rising in recent years – before being stopped in its tracks by the coronavirus pandemic last December.

We would like to hear from people who in recent years have moved away from exchanging material gifts in favour of experience presents. What has motivated you to do so? Has it been a positive change? Have you had any difficulties?
