With so much information available online, often it is hard to know just 'where to start looking'. Searching for gift items in particular can be very time consuming, so hopefully by offering this refined list of links and ideas, it will help make the task easier for you at Christmas or any special occasion.
1: Story Bridge Climb - for the adventurous and extravagant.
For these types of recipients, you can't go past the gift of a story bridge climb. This will certainly mark a moment for your giftee that will be remembered many years later.
Options for Story Bridge Climb include a choice to climb during a different part of the day, including at Twilight. Night, or Dawn. Abseil climbs and different combination and climb packages are also available. Link here to details and prices for Story Bridge Climb
2: Redballoon - cover all your bases. Here you can gift from a huge variety of ideas covering inner city stuff like cruising, dining, arts tours etc. Find adventure stuff like a V8 Race Car Experience at Queensland Raceway and Flying Lesson at Caboolture Flying School, to tame stuff like a 'Beer and BBQ' cooking class, photography courses and other organised lessons. Although you can purchase Red Balloon for any city in Australia, view details to the directory here. Just type in your suburb or adventure and start your gift search.
3: For KIDS Here is a website that lists the top 20 toys for kids. Worth a squiz if you are struggling for thoughts or ideas. It is called Kidspots and you can link through to the Christmas ideas for kids here, Mums here. Ideas include cute pjs, underwater pets, or dolls houses.
Another website, offering great ideas for the 'little people' is Brisbane Kids. which is a diverse website full of ideas for small ones and babies. Find ideas, recommended shops and click through to those that offer the 'online buy' options
4: Pamper and Pleasure
Pampering at a day spa with a nice relaxing massage, facial or 'add on' treatments is enjoyed by all woman so you can't go wrong with gifting this. Oh, and the men, yes they often will enjoy this sort of pampering as well. These styles of vouchers can usually be found online at numerous treatment and massage places. However why not consider a central Brisbane city location so your giftee has the option to make a 'day out with lunch or shopping if they choose to. Brisbane Holistic Centre has locations in the city and New Farm. Direct link here to online voucher purchase OR direct link here to location information and full menu of services.
5: For the Artistic and Creatives
Send someone to the theatre. Guaranteed to delight the artistic and creative souls. You can purchase a voucher for a particular show, or for a select dollar value allowing recipient to choose their favourite play from the season line up. Queensland Theatre can even include a personal message from you. Direct link here to online ticket purchases and to view information.
6: The NO THINK idea
The 'simple classic' 'no think idea' is to buy a credit card with credit and allow the giftee to spend your dollars as they choose. Direct link through to a prepaid ANZ credit card here.
Although this is always an appreciated gift by the recipient you are unable to guide 'their spend'. All this means is they might buy nothing more purposeful with their gifted card than everyday stuff like 'groceries'' or 'over the counter medications' . Nothing wrong with this however, it is just that they may not remember your gift in the future as they won't be able to identify their purchase with their gifter. (it is still the thought that counts)
7: The trick or treat
Just when I was about to finish off, I came across this place. So, if your still looking after this list of ideas, then you are doing a great job trying to find the 'right gift. Therefore I am leaving you with one more idea which covers almost all angles in life.
