What do you get the person who has everything? Or the minimalist in your life? Give them an experience! This list of the best experience gifts in Auckland covers the cultured, the classy, and the just plain crazy (in a good way).
1. A Wine and Paint Party!
A wine and paint party makes a terrific birthday surprise for novice painters and art enthusiasts alike. More a painting party than a painting class, our fun-filled paint ‘n’ sip events come with everything you and your group could possibly need.
Create a masterpiece to take home, sip on delicious wine, and make memories with your favourite people. Experience gifts don’t get much better than that. Give your special someone an Art in Bloom gift voucher and start planning a sensational day out!
2. Hot Air Balloon Ride
Float high above the clouds and feel lighter than air aboard a whimsical hot air balloon ride. Watch your lucky person take in the breathless views and toast to another trip around the sun together. Well worth the road trip!
This combo of a helicopter ride and a five-star feast doesn’t come cheap, but it’s their birthday – they deserve it! Be picked up in a chopper and glide across the harbour to the ethereal Tantalus Estate on Waiheke Island. Be greeted with a glass of champagne on arrival and then settle in for a top-notch four-course à la carte lunch. Sublime.
4. Bungy Jump
Give them the ultimate thrill with a scenic bungy jump from Auckland’s harbour bridge. Experiences don’t get much wilder than this! Opt for the added video package for a memento they’ll be able to keep forever.
5. Whale and Dolphin Safari
Get up close and personal with Auckland’s marine life on this award-winning whale and dolphin safari. It’ll be as if they’re behind the camera of a David Attenborough documentary! Stand aboard your luxury vessel and marvel at these divine aquatic creatures casually going about their day.
Give your birthday someone an experience they won’t soon forget with a wine and paint party voucher!
