Safari in South Africa
Does the birthday boy or girl love animals? Well, what better gift to give them than a visit to see wild cheetahs, lions, and zebras out in their natural habitat. They’ll be in awe seeing them so up close on an unforgettable trip. You’ll have a great time too – going on a real safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Rome is a fabulous all-rounder for a trip with the kids, as you’ve got so much to see and do, from visiting the historic sites, checking out the high-end fashion, and sampling the amazing local food – think of the pizza, pasta, and gelato! Go to the colosseum and the kids can get a taste of what it’s like to be a gladiator for the day, whilst learning about the history along the way.
If it’s the right season for it, a trip to Lapland around the festive period is not an opportunity to miss. Whilst there, you have the chance to marvel at the northern lights, go husky sledding, and of course, see Santa Claus in all his glory! This would certainly be a trip to remember forever, for you and them.
The most important thing when it comes to gift-giving is the thought that you put in. Therefore, you must ensure that where you decide to go is definitely somewhere your kids want to visit, not just somewhere you can get a suntan! Talk to them and see if you can find out if there’s anywhere they’d love to visit before you book.
