Holidays and breaks
Nothing says luxury gift more than a holiday or getaway. Gifting the chance to get away from it all in a picturesque setting is the perfect present, whether it's a holiday in the sun or a country escape in the UK.
Travelzoo offers a range of luxury holiday deals, ranging from the grandeur of a picture-perfect break in Santorini to awe-inspiring trips to Dubai or the Maldives. The key thing to consider with gifting a break or holiday is to make sure you choose a deal to suit the occasion and the recipient. So, if you're looking for somewhere to celebrate a big anniversary or landmark birthday, then it’s time to pull out the stops and pick a special place you know they’ll love.
Foodie experiences exude luxury -- what could be better for a lover of luxury than the finest food crafted by top-flight chefs? Choose from from AA-Rosette-awarded tasting menus, Michelin-starred meals and sumptuous champagne afternoon teas. If you really want to treat that special someone, why not opt for a tasting menu while gazing at the stars, or even a chef's table deal, giving you the chance to rub shoulders with a famous chef?
The possibilities are almost endless when it comes to gifting food experiences. This gift idea is perfect for a range of occasions, from simply wanting to say thank you, through to a birthday or for Christmas. These are the gifts that will create memories (and tastes!) to be treasured and remembered forever.
Drink experiences offer the recipient the chance to sample the finest wines, the coolest craft beers and the most aromatic gins. People who enjoy the finer things in life have specific tastes and passions -- for instance, if your loved one is a wine connoisseur, then a vineyard tour or wine-tasting session would be perfect.
Does your mum have a collection of fancy gin glasses with all the accessories and garnishes you could possibly think of? If so, a gin distillery tour and tasting makes a fabulous gift. The same goes for gifting brewery or vineyard tours, wine tastings and even cases of fine wine or craft beer.
Is there anything more wonderfully indulgent than a spa day with all the trimmings? For those who love luxury, spa breaks, spa days or even standalone treatments make wonderful gifts. If you're looking for a truly special Christmas, birthday or anniversary gift for your loved one, a spa day or break with treatments, a meal and a glass of bubbles is a magnificent choice. Don't know how to say thank you to a friend, family member or colleague for going above and beyond to help you? Book them in for a deluxe treatment and give the gift of some well-deserved pampering. Whatever you choose for the epicurean in your life, a spa-based gift always hits the ideal note.
Nothing quite tops the thrill of seeing world-class performers strut their stuff on the biggest stage. Cast your eyes over the interior of any theatre and you'll notice the intricate and lavish detail in the design of the building -- it's little wonder theatre experiences are considered a luxurious occasion and that the best venues match the calibre of the entertainment they host. Whether the trip is to experience musical theatre, ballet, opera or anything in between, your gift recipient will adore this present. For noteworthy occasions, why not add a luxury hotel stay and high-end culinary experience to a trip to the theatre to create something truly remarkable?
Sports events such as Wimbledon are synonymous with a luxury experience -- but not when you have to queue for five hours before you can sup on bubbly and indulge in strawberries and cream. Gifting tickets with a reserved seat at a court and even an overnight stay at a hotel is the perfect experience package, giving your loved one the chance to get glammed up, rub shoulders with the rich and famous, and watch world-class tennis.
