As Martin Lewis, our money-saving expert and general life organiser, has advised this Black Friday and Cyber Monday: try not to spend money on things you don’t actually want, as that won’t actually save you any money.


We’re paraphrasing our great Martin Lewis, but the sentiment is still there. If you spend £30 on a new jacket because it had 50% off, but you will never wear that jacket, that’s 30 quid down the drain.

The same applies to experience days, too. If you give your scared-of-heights mum a zipline experience for Christmas because it had 20% off, you may not be offered a second helping of Yorkshire puddings.

Luckily for you, Buyagift has a whole range of experiences, so you're bound to find the perfect day for your loved one.

Buyagift has activities in multiple locations across the UK, so you can stay close to home or plan a city break around your chosen experience. For example, organising a trip to London with a West End theatre show in mind, would be a brilliant gift.

There are relaxing days, like spa treatments and delicious afternoon teas, or more energetic activities, such as fast car drives and assault courses.

Best of all, we've secured an exclusive code to get you 25 per cent across selected Buyagift experiences, including many of their Black Friday deals. So as well as getting up to 80 per cent off in Buyagift's Black Friday sale, you can bag an additional 25 per cent off top experiences. Who said we don't treat you, eh?
