Looking for a gift to impress your wife, mother, daughter or girlfriend? We have 5 gift ideas that will be a pleasant surprise for any occasion.

1. Our top gift idea for lovers of art and all things refine is the super fun art jamming party. 2 hours of fun painting in a big group under the guidance of an experienced instructor. Unlike regular painting sessions, this experience comes complete with music and a party atmosphere perfect for a Saturday night out. 

2. For sporty girls, we recommend you get them the Muay Thai, Brazilian Ju Jitsu or Mix Martial Arts sesson for 1. Pick an introductory course to one of the 3 style and get physical with our instructors. Sessions are available everyday from 9am to 10am.  

3. If your recipient is a lover of fine foods, we recommend the three course executive set lunch with wine pairing. Savour dishes such as  Truffle Mushroom Puree Soup and  “Sous Vide” Sirloin Steak. Every course comes with a glass of wine recommended by the chef. 

4. For someone who needs a good pampering, we highly recommend nourishing home facial for her. Forget about traffic jams and crowds, our therapist will come to you and pamper you with a relaxing facial that improves your skin and relieve you of stress.  

5. And finally ladies into fast cars, let them take a Ferrari F1 430 or a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder for a 15 minutes spin. There is 1000 brake horse power between the 2 cars. That is the equivalent of 10 Suzuki Swifts combined!

What do you think of our gift ideas for girls? Do you know anyone who appreciates a unique experience? I would love to hear your thoughts.

A love story

Justin came to us on 9 February 2012 looking for ideas on how to make Valentines Day this year extra special. He had gotten married to Faith a few months back and wanted their first ever Valentines Day together as a married couple to be one they will remember forever.

Here’s what happened:

Besides surprising Faith with Zumvee gift vouchers for experiences she always wanted to try, Justin also gave her specially designed vouchers with 10 of his own experiences on Valentines Day.

Needless to say, Faith was extremely touched by the gesture. What a great start to a marriage! Justin and Faith will be sharing the experiences at a later time and we feel privileged to have been a part of this special occasion.

Our Top 5 gift ideas for guys

401

It can get kinda head scratching when it comes to getting gifts for guys. Guys in general like food, gaming, sports and the latest tech stuff, but with very specific tastes in those things, it can get tricky. If you want to give him a pleasant surprise while enjoying quality time, you may want to consider these top 5 ideas:

1) Sports – MMA is all the rage now, pitting different martial art styles against each other plays on every guy’s obsession on competition – think Dragonball playing cards with different power levels that were so popular with guys back in school. http://bit.ly/AogdJH

2) Food – I’m going to say it now just to get it out of the way – Food is the way to a man’s heart. There I said it. Its implied that it has to be good food, so try a four course dinner prepared by an award winning chef. http://bit.ly/zo5ubb

3) Outdoors – Every guy needs to be out and about to stretch and flex once in awhile. We can’t think of a better way than combining sports with the great outdoors. With Wakeboarding he can hone a cool skill and have fun at the same time, check it out here: http://bit.ly/zx1K26

4) Relax – If your guy is overworked, he’d probably need a good relaxing time and massage. Most guys don’t really know how to pamper themselves, so why not do the pampering for them? Enjoy an aromatherapy and massage with him, he’ll appreciate it.http://bit.ly/ygQhcm

5) Music – Everyone loves music in one form or another, and guys can get really passionate about music. Indulge his rockstar tendencies with a guitar or ukulele lesson, popular in indie, rock, folk, pop music! http://bit.ly/yBvhO8

3 tips to choosing the perfect gift

3_tips_gift_giving_blog

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where a friend’s birthday is just round the corner and you can’t decide what to give? Hampers are cliche and gift cards do not fully convey how much you appreciate the relationship. Below are 3 tips on how to choose the perfect gift.

1. Make the gift memorable.

Give an original gift, something which he or she will not expect to receive. Think about the most memorable gift you ever received as a child. Was it an expensive toy or the time your parents took you on a surprise trip to the zoo? Spending time with your recipient makes for an excellent gift. If you can’t spare the time, the second best option is to give the person a good time

2. Give a gift that you can personalize. 

For most of us, the thoughtfulness of a gift is more important than the cost. Giving someone a wakeboarding experience because you remember she always wanted to try it and personally arranging a private lesson is more meaningful than giving him a cheque for twice the amount. 

3. Consider the personality of the recipient.

This may sound obvious but its important to know the recipient. Does your recipient like trying out new stuff or collecting stuff? The perfect gift for an adrenaline junkie may be less than perfect for a more indoors type of person. Try finding out more about the recipient from friends and family, its all part and parcel of being thoughtful and making someone’s day!
