Fathers can be very difficult people to shop for. Actually, I find it tough to find presents for men in general sometimes. Sometimes when you ask them what they’d like, they respond with, “I don’t need anything!” or “Don’t bother buying anything for me.” Rather than gifting a material object that they may not use, why not give them a unique experience that they’ll always remember?
Thankfully, that’s what Life Experiences is all about! Life Experiences was recently acquired by another Canadian experience company, Samba Days. You might recall that we’ve had some amazing adventures using Samba Days gift boxes, including white water rafting down the Ottawa River. Similar to Samba Days, Life Experiences offers a wide assortment of gifts in the form of experiences. That’s why it’s perfect for a gift for Dad. There’s an experience for everyone on the site, so I’m sure you’ll find something that he will enjoy.
You can choose from all sorts of activities in places across Canada. For instance, perhaps the recipient is planning a holiday to a particular place in the country. Why not give him the gift of an activity to do while he’s there? Even if Dad doesn’t have any upcoming travels, you can definitely find something for him to experience right at home.
You can search through categories like Adventure, Dining/Entertainment, Hotels, Bed & Breakfast, and Golf. There’s even a function that will help you find the perfect gift for that special someone: the Gift Finder. Just fill in the location, the person, and the occasion and Life Experiences will provide you with a list of experiences to choose from. By using the Gift Finder and entering in certain parameters for a Father, I discovered a whole assortment of experiences. For example, he could take archery lessons, spend the day golfing, take a brewery tour with beer tasting, take a flying lesson, or take a Lamborghini out for a test drive. There are tons of cool activities on the site that will create everlasting memories.
Even if you’ve left finding a Father’s Day gift until the very last moment, don’t fret. With Life Experiences, you order the activity online and it goes straight to your inbox instantaneously. Just provide the printed gift certificate to Dad and he’s all set. There’s a code on the certificate that allows him to book the experience for whatever date or time best suits him.
We have a Life Experience trip of our own coming up! Both Justin and I will be taking a trip up to Collingwood, Ontario where we’ll be taking an Eco-Adventure tour at Scenic Caves. We’ll be walking high up in the trees as we treetop trek in the forest. We’ll be learning about the ecological history of the Niagara Escarpment and discovering it by walking between platforms or ziplining over valleys. There are also some caves to explore, too. And of course, we’ll be writing all about our adventure there with tons of photos once we return. Perhaps this excursion would interest your Dad for Father’s Day…and you could make an entire family trip of it.
