With the festive season not far away, here are a few ideas for gifts to give to someone special… or maybe to treat yourself!
Annual membership of English Heritage or the National Trust is a unique Christmas gift that lasts a whole year.
With English Heritage there are big discounts for Seniors. For one person 60+ it costs just £49, for a couple £74.
With the National Trust, you will also receive a free pair of binoculars.
For Seniors Travellers who fancy something adventurous, then why not give a Flying Gift. Choose from helicopter rides, hot air balloons, light aircraft rides or lots other adventure experiences at buyagift.
Or for those who prefer to remain down-to-earth, then maybe opt for a Dining Out Gift for two with wine, costing about £30.
You can select by UK region the experience that suits the person you are giving to… or for treating yourself.
Books for Senior Travellers
My list of Books for Senior Travellers gives some excellent gift ideas, for example, Travelling for the Over Sixties by Timothy Blewitt, which can be obtained from the Book Depository for £8.50 with free delivery worldwide.
Why not give a gift of a luxury hotel stay. Hilton Hotels have a Winter Sale which gives up to 35% discount on their usual rates. Bookings must be made before January 31st, 2016.
With other hotel groups, make certain you claim senior discount rates if you are booking a stay for a senior friend. See: Hotel Deals for Seniors.
A Winter Minicruise to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Bruges or Ostend provides an unusual, but very enjoyable, Christmas gift. PO Ferries are now offering their two night minicruises on a 2 for the price of 1 basis; excellent value from only £79 for two. For an extra £16 include a car as well.
