Stuck for Christmas Inspiration?
Choose From Lilly’s Top 10 Winter Experiences instead of the Same Old Gifts
What do the people in our lives value more than a physical gift? The experience of a holiday break! Let’s not get lost in speculation… here are the top 10 best Christmas break deals we offer, sprinkled with elf magic, and sealed with a sooty Santa Claus kiss.
1 – European Christmas Market Holiday Break
Spring an early romantic vacay on your SO with a trip to your European Christmas Market of choice. That’s right – this deal lets you choose between 28 different Euro destinations. You can taste the local dried meats in Rome, pick up Chorizo in Madrid, or eat – whatever it is that people eat – in Salzburg. Is it Bratwurst? It might be Bratwurst.
This deal lets you choose between a two, three, or four night stay in your city of choice. Some other destinations on the list include Valencia, Seville, Naples, Paris, and Vienna. This deal gives you an astounding amount of choice in destination for an affordable price per person. You will be staying in a double room whether or not you choose a ticket for two, so make the most of it!
2 – Staycation in London
Now we know this year has been a little rocky in terms of travel, so some of us aren’t big fans of flying, at the moment. What many people are doing is turning to the staycation instead. Booking a break for your loved ones, taking a romantic city stay, or treating someone to a short holiday as a Christmas present, can all be done without leaving the British Isles.
As much as we are huge (huge – so huge it needs repeated) fans of European travel, we know that flights might get cancelled. Nobody knows what position we will be in come Christmas 2020 with regards flights – and for this reason alone our London breaks have been bumped up the list. Have a home stay in the 4 Star Grand Hyde Park Hotel, for two people and a very reasonable price. Maybe you want a home stay that still takes you out of England? In that case, we suggest Edinburgh for a couple of nights and one of the best Christmas markets in the UK.
3 – For the Pregnant Partner
Christmas babies are a beautiful thing. There is nothing sweeter than having an expecting partner give birth in the winter months. Some lucky little souls even get to be born on Christmas day! Although we aren’t so sure the mothers think they are lucky… Nevertheless, you can shower your pregnant partner with love and affection in a way that doesn’t involve either leaving the country or coating your life in chocolate. If you haven’t worked it our yet, a bump-to-baby photoshoot is all the rage this year… or it’s going to be.
This package involves the choice of over 90 UK locations, where your pregnant partner can go to be made to feel fantastic for a few hours. They get glammed up and spend some time with a pro photographer, who will give them classic, artistic shots that they can cherish forever. To complete the sweetened deal, the baby then goes back for some shots once it has joined the world. What a gorgeous gift for the (pregnant) woman you love at Christmas.
4 – Gift a One Day Experience
This option is perfect for the person who wants to buy great gifts for the fam but can’t afford them. Buy one day experiences and adventures for a low fee. There are so many single day adventures to be had and especially so at Christmas time. This Dessert Making Class involves no-bake recipes and is held across three UK cities. Choose a single ticket or go as a group, but either way you are sure to learn and have a belter of a good time.
A Christmas gift experience doesn’t even need to be a winter break or festive theme. This 5 star Roseate leisure day for two is the highest of high end luxury – just for a taste. Or what about a spa day? The beautiful thing about an experience day gift is that they can be redeemed whenever they like!
5 – Farther Afield
Depending on how much you love the person you are buying a Christmas present for, you may want to go all-out and book a full-on holiday. Be one of those people who “do Christmas in Aspen” by jetting off to warmer climes. There is a vast array of Christmas breaks that you can choose from on the Lilly Likes pages, but we suggest the 8 night New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas adventure break. Leave from London to be whisked off around the globe on a jet-setting adventure with the person you love most… It’s a Christmas gift for both of you, which just makes it all the more satisfying.
6 – Combine Christmas Magic with Disneyland Magic!
So Disney World might be all the way across the pond and in the middle of a potential no-fly zone; but there’s always Paris. Disneyland at Christmas time is particularly wonderful, and when you are getting the hotel stay, park ticket and flight all for this kind of price? You might just buy yourself two trips. If you have young family members a Christmas trip to Disneyland Paris will make you the favourite relative. Better yet, this place is filled with magic that is destined to help you create the best memories ever. Make Christmas fun again. You know you want to.
7 – All About Anticipation
If you are one of those people who like to spoil your friends and family for the whole holiday season, splash out a tenner for this innovative festive gift. Send your family and friends off on a Twelve Days of Christmas Scavenger Hunt. Although the price might change, the excitement won’t. Get everyone as excited about the holiday season as you are with this special Christmas time treat. If you only buy one experience for one person as one gift… make it this.
8 – Cruise into New Year
Does the love of your life enjoy a good cruise? If so, you can find a leisurely drift down the Danube River as a central part of this Central Budapest Break. You will stay in a four star hotel, have flights and breakfast included in the cost, and get to see the heart of a country that most people never get to see. You can stay for three or four nights, enjoying the finer things that Hungary has to offer. Tour the city, cruise the river, and do it all with the person you love the most.
9 – Winter Sun
What about forgetting about the whole idea of the Christmas holidays, and simply booking up for a two week break somewhere? No? A few short winter Sundays spent lavishing in the bars of Mallorca should give you the taster you need. Get all the winter blue skies you can without having to commit to the full fortnight off work. Don’t like Mallorca? That’s fine. Book a few days in Crete or city-hop in Italy, instead.
10 – the Multi Stop Tour
Are you buying a gift for the person who has seen and done it all before, then you should consider a multi-stop stay? Get yourself into the Eurozone for Christmas with a multi-stop adventure that covers 6-9 nights in Rome, Venice, and Milan on a multi-stay holiday. Take as long as you like, buy a ticket for your loved one – or just give in to temptation and keep it for yourself… but whatever you do, jump on this deal before it sells out like the figurative hot cake it is!
