Gift Experience FAQs

Lauren Enever, Brand Content Manager at Prezola, filled us in on why gift experiences make the best gifts and how you can easily add experiences to your gift list. 

How Do I Give an Experience as a Wedding Gift?

You can shop for individual experience gifts at Not on The High Street, Virgin Experience Days or Buy A Gift. Be sure to check that the happy couple hasn't set up a gift list including the specific experiences they'd like first though - it's the easiest way to ensure the couple you're buying for will love your gift!

Prezola make it super easy for couples to add the experiences they'd most like to their gift lists: "You can add it all at the UK’s favourite gift list, Prezola. We’ve partnered with Virgin Experience Days, Obby, and Mr & Mrs Smith so that you can add memorable experiences that your guests will love to gift you," says Lauren. 

Why is an Experience Better than a Gift?

Many couples these days will have set up home long before their engagement and so the tradition of buying homewares no longer works for the majority. While physical gifts and keepsakes will certainly be welcomed by couples, we think there's something special about gifting an experience that the couple can enjoy together, and Lauren agrees: 

"By giving an experience as a gift you are giving couples memories that will last a lifetime. If you already have all the basics covered in your home, asking for an experience is a great way to keep the wedding excitement going. Maybe there’s something you’ve always wanted to do? A passion or a hobby that you have that you’ve always wanted to explore? Or maybe you’d like to use your gift list to plan for date nights for the year to come? Adding an experience to your gift list is a great way to explore this."
