gift experiences

Every Christmas there is always someone on your list that is hard to shop for – that one person that is seemingly impossible to find anything for. Maybe you are even unlucky enough to have a couple of those on your list this year, and since I love to help I knew I had to share for the second year in a row. Breakaway Experiences has your back when it comes to breaking the mold when it comes to gift giving.

Breakaway Experiences has lots of brilliant experiences that they make it simple to find something for anyone on your list. With their easy to buy gift certificates you can get someone on your list an day they will never forget.

The best part about their gift certificates? You can use them whenever you want to so getting them in the Winter time doesn’t mean you have to stick to a winter activity (even though they have some really great ones). To highlight some of the fun stuff you can do throughout the seasons through Breakaway Experiences right here in Vancouver!

Don’t forget though they have incredible Experiences all over Canada!

Winter/Fall Breakaway Experiences

Dark Table Vancouver Experience for Two – A great gift idea for any couples on your list who you think need a little alone time. Whether it is their first year with a new baby, they have one on the way or you know they just need a break this is a great idea. Not only is this a great restaurant it is an amazing experience from beginning to end. Leading you into a very sensual dining experience by closing off your sense of sight. Helping you taste your food on a whole new level and to enjoy your partner in a whole new way.

Introduction to Scuba Diving – There is never a better time than the present to learn a brand new skill. If there is someone on your list who you know has always wanted to do something like this here or even abroad while travelling this is the perfect place to start. New hobbies are a great thing and gifting someone something like this that they can build on for years to come is a brilliant idea.

Gastown Food Tour – Breakaway has many great food tours from Little Italy all the way to Gastown and I can’t suggest their tours more highly. Every one of them will bring something totally different to the table, excuse the pun, not only highlighting our culinary scenes here in Vancouver but also a little bit of history along the way. These tours are great in any season so don’t shy away from them just because its chilly – they are great tours.

Ski and Snowboard Tour from Vancouver – If you have someone on your list that loves to play in the snow then this ski and snowboard experience is a great option. Meeting your tour in downtown Vancouver they will bring you to the slopes to experience a day of fun on Cypress Mountain. Your guide will take your all over to showcase some of the best areas and give you memories to last a life time. A great gift for any ski or snowboarder on your list this year!

Two Week Introduction to Pole Dancing – Looking for a gift for a girlfriend you think could use some time outside of her comfort zone than look no further. Not only is this a super affordable option it is great fun to get for not just a friend but for a group of ladies looking for a great time and an ego boost.

Vancouver Guided Snowshoe Tour – If you know someone who loves the snow but isn’t exactly a ski or snowboard fan then this great snowshoe tour could be perfect for them. Snowshoeing is great for any level of expertise so if you are beginner you don’t have to be afraid of having never done it before. Your tour guide picks you up in downtown Vancouver driving you up to the mountain for a great tour of the sights. Bonus this tour also comes with snacks and a side of education making it a great option for a gift for the whole family!

Spring/Summer Breakaway Experiences

Ski Jet Tour with Dinner on Bowen Island – Have a big adventurer on  your list? Then you might want to look into this action packed experience that includes a fast jet ski tour and ends with an amazing meal on Bowen Island. This is a great idea if you are looking for something fun to do together as a couple or as a gift to a friend who really needs some fun in their life!

Awesome Foursome Adventure Package In Whistler – Whistler has so much to offer and if you and someone on your list are looking for a great experience to do together then this could be your ticket. A great idea for adrenaline junkies who love to do it all when they go on a trip package gives you the ultimate Whistler experience.

Breakaway Experiences

Catch and Cook Crabbing Tour – Being able to go off crabbing with an experienced guide is a great way to open someone up to the world of fishing and natural food here in Vancouver. Our crabs are sure tasty and crabbing within our city is a real treat that everyone should experience at least once in their lives. This would be a great gift for any budding chef or fisherman in your house!

Guided Horseback Ride – Have a horse lover who is stuck living in the city on your Christmas list? Then maybe a day adventure with some horses in Pemberton is just what they need. You can take in the views of Birkenhead Lake and everything that our beautiful province has to offer. enjoying a day in the mountains with one of the most beautiful animals; a great idea for anyone who is a cowboy at heart.

Night Time Kayaking

Sunset Kayaking TourHaving done this experience this past Summer I can say 100% that it was one of the highlights of our Summer season. The tour is so well done and can be done by even the most inexperienced person. Since I love kayaking so much this was a great time for both my husband and I and we will be doing it again and again for sure.

Sea to Sky Sightseeing Flight – Want to gift someone an experience they will never forget then a great sightseeing tour is a brilliant way to do that. Seeing our beautiful province from above gives you a whole new appreciation for what we have right here at home. This is a great way to take someone’s breath away this holiday season – gifting them an experience they will talk about for years to come.

Of course this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what Breakaway has to offer you and the people on your Christmas list this year. With so much to do the hardest choice you will have to make is how much you should gift on your gift certificates!
