Thursday, 25 November 2010 4:02 PM

If your other half prefers to ‘do something’ rather than ‘get something’ for Christmas, then a short break gift voucher could be the perfect present. Online gift experience company buyagift.com has seen a recent boom in Brits looking for a unique weekend away.

Short break gift vouchers are becoming more and more popular, with buyagift reporting 120 per cent growth this year for October and November.

Current offers include a two-night hotel break for £99, and a two-night romantic break with champagne and chocolates for £149, both of which are currently half price, with over 35 UK destinations to choose from.

Alison Wade, Head of Marketing at Buyagift.com, says that one-off experiences are also on the rise: “Driving days are proving as popular as ever, and the spa days and adrenaline experiences are also extremely popular with our customers.”

Try indoor skydiving or crane bungee jumping from £29, or go for something different with an off-road Segway scooter rally race for £24.
