Ah November. That time of the year when you take hold of your pen and that trusty stack of luminous yellow post-it notes and set about writing your gift list for your nearest and dearest. But isn’t it difficult to continue to surprise and please every single year? There are only so many sets of bath salts and lotions, pairs of socks and bottles of wine that you can buy. And giving money could be seen as being just a tad impersonal.
So what do you do? Have you thought about giving the gift of travel this Christmas?
The thing about giving the gift of travel is that it is something different. Imagine getting a holiday for Christmas - something to look forward to and something to bring you through the dark and dreary winter.
Whether you buying for your kids, your husband or wife, or your brother or sister, there is a perfect holiday gift for everyone.
Christmas gifts for your husband, brother or son
In all honesty, if you have a football fanatical husband, brother or son, you cannot go wrong with treating them to a good old trip to see their favourite football or rugby team battle it out against fierce opposition. Seriously, you will be the best thing since sliced bread for months to come!
We have tonnes of options! Our most popular packages are the Liverpool and Manchester United packages, as well as our Real Madrid and Barcelona packages.

Christmas gifts for your wife, sister or daughter
What girl doesn’t adore heading off to a European city for a long weekend or a week in the sun? Whether it’s a romantic trip to Paris (the city of love), a shop-til-you drop shopping trip to Milan (Europe’s fashion capital), a relaxing weekend which is full of culture (think Berlin, Rome, Istanbul, Lisbon…), or even a nice beach break for early summer to Spain, the south of France, the Greek Islands, or of course the Canary Islands.
Lisa is our superstar when it comes to City Breaks. She has been to most of our destinations and is a fountain of information! You can get in touch with Joanna on 01-8047144.
Christmas gifts for your kids
Imagine waking up on Christmas morning to your kids shrieking at the fact that they are going to meet Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck on a magical trip to Disneyland Paris? Picture the delight on their little faces when the realisation hits them that they are going to be immersed in the magic that is Disneyland Paris. January and early February are ideal times to go. It is known as Super Value Season, as it is the best value for money. It also has the added advantage of boasting shorter queues!
