Unique Birthday Experience Day Gifts
Long gone are the days where you have to trawl the shops looking for the best birthday gifts for your loved ones. Now we have gift ideas at our fingertips thanks to the internet, this means there is now no excuse to gift out really poor presents as there is a present for every occasion these days!
But, don't mistake this for meaning that you can be lazy with your gift giving ideas as there is an abundance of ideas out there to suit every age, personality and group size!
We do, however, have to consider what is really important in these current times as if the last few years have taught us anything, it's that time is precious, and moments and experiences with our loved ones are worth much more than another pair of slippers or a candle!
With that in mind, take a look at some of the fantastic unique birthday experience day gifts we have to offer than are not only fun but are exceptional and will really make their mark on your loved ones memory! And who knows, you may just give them a birthday gift that then prompts them to take up the experience you've gifted as a hobby...you could say WonderDays experiences are life changing!!
A Virgin hot air balloon ride
The top of any birthday list has to be a hot air balloon ride and not only do we offer this brilliant experience for all group sizes, but we offer it with the UK's largest balloon ride provider, Virgin Balloon Flights!
With over 100 locations across the UK, Virgin Balloon Flights will give you the best experience day as the whole adventure lasts up to 4 hours!
You'll start by helping the crew prepare the balloon ready for inflation (fully optional but to do it is great fun!) Once the balloon has been inflated and is ready to go, you'll jump in the basket and enjoy unrivalled views of your chosen location, as far as the eye will see!
Once you've landed, you'll toast the flight with a glass of prosecco before you help with the packing up of the balloon. The experience then finishes with you being taken back to your car, unless you're lucky enough to fly a 'box' where you land where you take off!
Top of the birthday gifts- a Supercar Track Day
The ultimate in unique experience day gifts, the track day for Supercar lovers is a hands down winner! This is perfect for anyone that loves to put the pedal to the metal and go, so give the fastest of our gifts ideas a blast!
With this track day experience, you don't just get the chance to whizz around a circuit in one supercar, but five! With the choice of Lamborghini , Jaguar, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Porsche to choose from, this is every petrol heads dream present!
You'll get 3 miles per car round tracks at a choice of 12 locations across the UK then once you have driven to your hearts desire, you then get a high-speed passenger ride in a sports saloon car, driven by their very own Green Stig!

Off to Prison, don't collect £200!
One of the most unexpected birthday gifts might be a trip to prison! The Shepton Mallet Prison or Shrewsbury Prison are the homes for a guided former prison tour experience where you investigate what prison life was like for the former prisoners who served their sentences here.
You'll get to see the cells, executioners room, healthcare wings and even the condemned prisoners cell dating back to over 400 years ago!
This a great no-holds-barred guided tour led by an ex prison Officer who can shed a real light on what life was like for the prisoners, officers and visitors coming to the prison.
Zip it up at a North Wales zip line!
Make your loved ones eyes water with this unforgettable experience of a zip wire adventure deep in the Welsh mountains! Set in Snowdonia, you have the chance to fly down a zip wire at up to speeds of 70 mph across two lines, all whilst seated!
You will arrive at the platform having just completed a 45 minutes tour of the old quarry rich in history as you travel in old army trucks.
Not one for the faint hearted, this day out will be a birthday gift that is remembered for a long time for all the right reasons and not because you were the one that gave them a rubbish present!
And if they're not a fan of experience gifts..
It's a alien concept to us too here at WonderDays but if the likes of a Virgin balloon ride doesn't tickle their fancy or a snorkel ride doesn't float their boat then we have the easiest exchange policy in the gift experience day market!
All of our experience gifts can be exchanged for any other activity on our website so if a quintessentially British experience like a traditional afternoon tea is more of an ideal gift or they want to paddle board in Scotland as a perfect birthday gift then no problem! There are no catches, no hidden contracts, it really is as easy as letting us know what they'd like to do instead and we will exchange it for that option...it is their day after all!
Running out of gift ideas?
Fear not, if after all the experience days we have on offer, you just can't decide what your loved one would want for their an idea birthday gift, then we have the option of a gift card.
You choose the amount you'd like to spend on their special day and we will send you the voucher instantly by email or, same day if its ordered before 3pm, for them to pick exactly what they want to create memories that'll last forever!
The best things in are are never things!
With all the adventures we have the opportunity to do and how easy it to choose one especially when looking for wedding, anniversary or birthday gifts for example, or just a treat for yourself , there is no reason why you cant pick a day that your recipient will really treasure and remember forever!
