Giving the gift of experience in Madrid

An experience gift usually works like this: After buying the gift, the person who receives it will be able to select a convenient date.

An experience gift can normally be exchanged within a year after purchase. Online companies can show you many ideas to choose from, and these are all interesting options. But if you are in need of an outstanding gift and you need it quickly, the following experiences could be a solution to your last-minute search:

Driving an exotic car

This idea is absolutely perfect for anyone who loves cars. If you want to buy this gift for your loved one, most of the time he or she can select their model of preference. (Of course, it is all about speed and looks…)

Can you imagine your other half driving a Porsche, Lamborghini or Ferrari? Or what about driving an authentic Formula 1 car on the circuit? That would be amazing…

Up in the air

Going up in the air will be a spectacular experience and something you have always dreamed of.

This journey through the skies takes place via a hot air balloon, but you can also organise a trip by plane or helicopter. If you really want to get the adrenaline pumping, go for something even more riskier and daring, like doing a parachute jump.

Nature and adventure

It is not always easy to find a gift for the adventurous… It can be even harder to beat last year’s gift. One of the most sought-after experience gifts in Madrid is based on being in nature while fully enjoying an exciting activity, like canyoning, rafting or other water activities or adventures in the snow.

Wellness and relaxation

In contrast with the first three ideas on experience gifts, you can also go for the more relaxed option of giving a spa treatment.

Of course, this experience also includes the presence of the giver of the gift, because nothing feels better than spending some quality time together with your partner or another person that is very dear to you.

So don’t hesitate any longer and book a full day or afternoon at a spa, make reservations for a massage or beauty treatment and enjoy floating around in those thermal baths.

Culinary pleasures

Everyone loves to eat, so why not give a flavourful experience that stimulates the palate? Many gifts that include taste, smell, and an attractive visual presentation are guaranteed to be a success.

This means there is an endless list of possible gifts that have something to do with food and drinks, like a wine tasting at a local vineyard or a cooking course that teaches you how to prepare exotic, traditional or international recipes.

Learning experiences

You never stop learning in life, so giving the gift of knowledge or skills is welcomed by many. This type of gift has recently gained enormous popularity, and there are lots of options, from a basic course to professional training in any field imaginable.

The expert will teach you every little detail and tips and tricks, guaranteeing amazing results. Besides the aforementioned cooking course, try to think outside of the box by giving a diving course, photography workshop or motorcycle training, and surprise everyone with your unique experience gift!

Are there other special experience gifts to do in Madrid or its surrounding area?
