It can often be quite difficult buying gifts for men, especially those who already seem to have everything.
Often, when a woman asks a man, whether it’s a partner, brother or dad, what gift they would like, many will say that they don’t know. This can result in even more socks and pants cluttering the drawers, or novelty items that they don’t really want but accept due to politeness.
This is where the concept of experience days for men can be one of the best types of gifts that you can buy. An experience can provide an opportunity for him to have a go at something that he loves, or even provide a fun day out doing something that he’s never done before.
It’s very odd that there are a huge amount of experience gifts that are aimed toward British men, yet it seems that the target audience for these sites are not entirely intended for them, but for women instead.
Reports have shown that it is in fact women who tend to do almost all of the research into gift experience days, as well as making the transactions – although often using their male partner’s payment card.
Experience days for men are most certainly on the rise and it’s easy to see why, as there are many once in a lifetime opportunities to be had with them.
Here are a handful of experience gift ideas for men.
Most men have an infatuation with cars that some women just can’t understand, and a session behind the wheel of the most sought after ‘supercar’ is guaranteed to make an ideal gift for anyone who loves sporty cars.
The Lamborghini is the most exclusive of Italian supercars and can reach speeds that any petrol head will dream of experiencing.
The experience will start with an introduction and safety briefing on circuit driving techniques; there may also be one or two demo laps with an instructor in a salon car before hand.
After this, an expert instructor will be in the supercar with you for an exhilarating drive around a course. You’ll also be awarded with an individual driving certificate afterwards.
