Best Experience Birthday Gift

The best experience birthday gift 2021

When it comes to meaningful unique birthday gift ideas that leave a lasting impression and create fond memories that we can carry with us for the rest of our lives, it’s hard to look past experiential gifts. The value we place on past experiences is priceless, especially in the long term. Whereas physical objects depreciate in value over time (save for sentimental value, of course), the memories gained from experiences like holidays, a weekend hike, or a fun night out with our friends continue to be cherished as time goes on. As such, experiential gifts tend to demonstrate a more meaningful gesture these days. People want social currency that makes for good conversation, and helps us to bond with others who share similar experiences. If you’ve got a special someone’s birthday coming up in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane or anywhere in Australia, here is a handful of exciting, outside-the-box and unique birthday gift ideas that they can cherish long after the day has passed.

The Perfect Birthday Getaway

This one-night getaway is offered by Wingstons Glamping in BananaLab’s “Unique Box”. Find more information here. We are already halfway through 2021 and it is increasingly necessary to make a getaway to recharge energy. Perhaps a relaxing weekend amongst the lush Tasmanian greenery is just what you need! Can you imagine yourself taken back in time on a Grand Tour during the 1930’s? Majestic luxury accommodation, sumptuous queen size beds dressed in the finest cotton linen, nestled in front of your own roaring fire. Vintage steamer trunks and Persian style carpets will transport you back in time to when camping was all about the glamour.

A Little Anger Management…

Maybe your gift recipient prefers to relieve stress by beating the hell out of random objects, in which case The Break Room is probably the better way to help them regain their sanity after this unusual year! Located in Collingwood, this package will have the birthday boy or girl destroying items in a warehouse with three of their friends… what better way to blow off some steam?! Find this experience in our Treats for Madame and Treats for Monsieur Experience Gift Boxes.

A Hot Air Balloon View Like No Other, Followed by a Charming Champagne Breakfast

This package includes a one-hour hot air balloon session at sunrise, a champagne breakfast, and a flight certificate to take home and display with pride. Find more information here. Okay, let’s step it up a notch. If you’re looking to give someone a birthday gift to outshine all other birthday gifts, send them up into the sky above Melbourne CBD for a view like no other! Global Ballooning does sunrise hot air balloon tours, so your giftee can watch the Melbourne sunrise in a way that very few people are ever lucky enough to experience. To top it off, they get to enjoy a scrumptious champagne breakfast afterwards! This option makes for a wonderful and unique birthday gift. Find this experiences in our Unique Experience Gift Box.

Send Them to Learn How to “Hang Ten” in Byron Bay

This three-hour experience for four people is provided by Let’s Go Surfing, with all equipment provided (board, wetsuit, rash vest, sunscreen, zinc, and an expert instructor). It’s available in BananaLab’s “Treats for Madame” and "Treats for Monsieur" Experience Gift Boxes, and you can find more information here. Birthdays are a common time for people to take up new hobbies and learn new skills, as we realise we’re a year older and we only live once! For anyone living in Australia, it’s almost a rite of passage to learn how to surf. Not only is it a therapeutic activity that allows you to clear your head (it was actually while surfing in Torquay that founders Tom & Eric came up with the idea for BananaLab!), but it’s also a perfect excuse to visit some of Australia’s most picturesque surfing spots. Give your gift recipient the opportunity to learn how to surf in Byron Bay with two of their friends. They’ll be taught by a professional surfing instructor, in one of Australia’s most desirable settings.
