Christmas 2020: Experimental Gifts to Enjoy at Home this Festive Season

This year has posed a lot of challenges for us all, but, with Christmas, comes an opportunity to unwind and treat the ones we hold dearest. However, there is also a mounting pressure to find the perfect gift to raise the spirits of friends and family, at the end of what has been a very tough year for most. Experiential gifts are often the perfect solution, when shopping for that one person who has everything. But with most of the country still facing continued restrictions, comes the question: What experiences can be had in the comfort of our own homes? We’ve put together a selection of luxurious and unique experience gifts, just in time for the festive season.
