21st Birthday Present

Want to remove this ad? Please sign in or register for free today.

I am looking for a 21st Birthday present for a sporty female. I am looking to spend around 60/70. I am considering an experience day (Like Zorbing, Segway rallying or Indoor Skydiving) I heard some stories though about these companies taking your money then never come up with suitable dates. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks

Re: 21st Birthday Present

My parents bought my brother a ferrari driving experience for his 40th, he really enjoyed it. My dad and I have just bought my mum 2 experience gifts from ebuyer, they are from a company called activity superstore http://www.activitysuperstore.com/ . Might be worth looking at the reviews on their website as for different experiences there are different reviews.

And look at reviews on the MSE forums where they will not be biased by the site owners.

Bottom of the line Ford can give all the thrills of a fast drive without any of a fast drive experience! There are no bragging tales though.

Red Letter Days famously went in to administration a few years ago. It was owned at the time by Rachel Elnaugh, one of the early Dragon's Den Dragons.

Two other Dragon's, Peter Jones and Theo Paphitis purchased the company out of administration and continue to own it today.

Unforgettable Experience Days & Gifts | Red Letter Days

We recently puchased an Airkix Indoor Skydiving experience for our Son through Asda. It went really well and we even had to cancel the origianl date because of unforeseen circumstances, without any issues or penalty.

Some of the gifts do have restrictions and Ts & Cs that you have to read carefully and follow the booking instructions to the letter.

Cheers.

Re: 21st Birthday Present

That is the difficulty, getting genuine reviews!. The company I am considering has recent good feedback and there are some that are so-so. I am skeptical about these type of reviews. Although I recently left a report for a local restaurant and is was repeated word for word (It was a good review though!). I do have faith the the Red Letter Day company so that where I will go.
