#buyabettergift for dad this Father’s Day with Buyagift

How are we in June already? Somehow or other, Father’s Day is just over a fortnight away. Yes, people, this is your 16-day warning!

It’s often said that dads are difficult to buy for. I have to admit that I struggle with ideas for my old man. Similarly, I find it hard to think of things I want.

One such solution is to gift an experience and Buyagift has plenty of them to choose from. As the UK’s largest online gift experience provider, it has everything from relaxing afternoon teas to high adrenalin activities like skydiving.

This year, Buyagift is challenging people to #buyabettergift and Dare Dad to try thrillseeking experiences as Father’s Day Gifts. I think this is a great approach – a fun day out should live long in the memory. So what are the available options?

A supercar on a racing track.

Driving experiences are always popular and with choices that include supercars, track days and motors from iconic movies, there’s bound to be something suitable if your old man’s a petrolhead.

If he has more of a head for heights, options include flying lessons, parachuting and hot air balloon rides.

Maybe your dad is an adventurer. With experiences that range from bungee jumping and scaling prominent landmarks to riding Segways and powerboats, there are loads of brilliant ideas.

Two people on a skydive.

Indeed, having had a look through the Buyagift site, I’ve got a few ideas to put on the ’40 things to do before I’m 40′ list that I’m working on at the moment. Ever since I became aware of zombie survival experiences, they’ve been on my to-do list!

Everybody loves a discount code, so how about 25% off? Simply quote DAREDAD when prompted.

Ultimate Adventures Smartbox from Buyagift.

What’s more, I have one Ultimate Adventures Smartbox (worth £159.99) to give away. It offers a choice of over 400 experiences, so there’s sure to be something suitable to dare dad to try!

To be in with a chance of winning, use the Rafflecopter widget below. As always, you can use as many of the entry methods as you like, including sharing what you would dare dad to try. Good luck!
