Experience days could be just the ticket to post-pandemic happiness.
We are not encouraging you all to get out there and squeeze in a year’s worth of partying before we are forced into yet another lockdown – not at all! But we do encourage you to make plenty of time for self-care over the coming months, and with Father’s Day coming up what better way to treat him than with an experience he will never forget.
The pandemic has been hard on all of us, and God knows we are all sick of talking about it. So, go get some new things to talk about, courtesy of Red Letter Days, perfect for treating dad this Father’s Day
Red Letter Days You Shouldn’t Miss Out on in Summer 2021
As the summer fast approaches, let Lilly Likes to guide you towards experience days you will love. Here are a few suggestions for you to get started on…
1 – Gifts for Him –
£49.99 £42.49 With Code LILLY15RLD
First, let’s assume you are shopping for an experience day as a gift and therefore that you need a gift for him. Second of all, this experience gift box for him is valid for 24 months… so even if we do find ourselves in a third, fourth, fifth or sixth wave, you ought still to be able to use it.
This gift box is made for the adrenaline junkie. It is suitable for two people and contains a multiple choice voucher that he can use towards a variety of experience options. This voucher entitles him to a choice of over 1700 different options. He might eat at a Michelin star restaurant, he might go for a ride in a supercar, he might even go for a speedboat ride.
The times, dates, and length of the activities will vary depending on what they are. One thing’s for sure: that this will be a blast unlike any other… and an experience he is unlikely to forget anytime soon.
2 – The Gift Card –
£100 £85 With Code LILLY15RLD
Don’t know what to get him? Lost in choices or unsure of what to get the pickiest of your friends? This Red Letter Days is an excellent way to pamper them, even when you don’t know what they want.
The £100 gift card allows you to take part in any of the RLD deals you find that you love. You simply redeem the voucher against the cost of the deal and get on your way to enjoying it. The card comes with total flexibility to book any experience. You can pay the difference or keep extra credit for next time if you go above or fall short of the cost.
This voucher can’t be used to purchase hampers or product based gifts and rather has to be used on an experience day. We think that’s just all the more reason to love it.
3 – The Supercar Blast –
£189 £160.65 With Code LILLY15RLD
This awesome Red Letter Days Supercar Blast experience includes a 3 hour tour around one of two track locations, all inside a supercar. You will be able to perform a 15 mile supercar driving experience, all for a fantastic price. You choose three cars from their impressive fleet, and you end up driving each one for three miles around the track.
There is only one perceived drawback to this deal which is valid for 20 months. It is only available in Kent. If you live in Scotland, you’ve had it… although you could make a weekend of it and go overnight.
Their choice of supercar includes:
- The Lamborghini Gallardo
- The Ferrari California
- The Nissan GTR
- And other names like McLaren, Aston Martin, and Porsche.
4 – Blue Skies and Bubbly –
£59 £50.15 With Code LILLY15RLD
How about a helicopter ride? This experience day features 6 miles of blue skies Helicopter tour, with champagne, for two people. It’s a great price that is available at over 45 locations, giving it an edge on that last one.
The Blue Skies tour contains bubbly enough to be romantic and is less of a gift for her/him, and more of a gift for them/us. It’s ideal for Valentine’s Day although they book up fast in advance. This tour includes a full safety briefing, a glass of bubbly each and a six mile tour by air, in a helicopter ride for two. It’s a fair bit more advanced than a bicycle made for two, though. Consider yourselves warned. Give this helicopter ride to the couple who have never got free time to spend together, to the romantic partner in your life, or to a friend who needs a relationship pick-me-up. We’re certain it will be well-received, as long as they’re not scared of heights. Or falling

This offer is valid for 20 months, so you can be sure to get to it even if there are other lockdowns and is available across 28 different locations. It takes 3.5 hours to complete the journey, so give yourself a whole morning to enjoy it fully. This ride leaves at dawn and can be affected by the weather, so be prepared.
Hot air balloons are enchanting, offering a splendid way to see the countryside, and to pick out the towns and cities, without the roaring noise of an engine deafening you. This is a 2 person experience that will see you presented with a romantic glass of bubbly on arrival. You will drift 2000 feet up into the sky with your own experience hot air balloon operator.
There are limits to this deal. You can only go in the morning, and it is also weekday only. That doesn’t take away from it being the romantic excursion of a lifetime, though. Check it out.

Do you fancy yourself as a pilot? Better yet, do you have a partner who fancies themselves as a pilot?

It’s not your normal machine… this one has been so streamlined for the air that it can do tricks.
This deal is valid in 17 different locations around the UK and for 20 months. Again, if we go into another lockdown, you will have time to deal with that. You will be in the air for 20 minutes, although you should leave yourself about an hour for the complete experience. You will need to learn the safety procedures and you might even end up learning tactical skills and competing in a hover challenge to see what you have learned.
Arguably best of all is that this will contribute towards your pilot’s license, should you want to go for it officially. This is a brilliant deal that we might just take up ourselves.
