Thinking outside the box for the women in my life

I have two sisters and a female cousin my age and whenever birthdays and Christmas come around I’m always searching for something to give them that is something a little bit out of the box.
I usually look at perfumes and books they might like or I’d take them out for a meal at a place I know they want to try or already like, but as each yeah passes it becomes more and more difficult to be original with gifts for them.
Recently as we’ve all gotten older we have looked at giving experiences and creating memories over actual things like a perfume or electronics. Spa days, cooking classes and trips for afternoon tea are very popular for women on gift day sites. Although these are lovely ideas for gifts they aren’t very original for gift giving at all.

My two younger sisters have both passed their driving tests very recently and that gave me a really really good idea! I was looking at Track Days and they have some amazing driving experiences available to book as gifts. From classic vehicles like the classic mini to absolutely stunning supercars. I was initially a little worried about the cost but I was surprised to find that you can get a driving experience with a McLaren for the price of birthday dinner for two in London. There are so many different cars (my favourite being the Audi R8) to choose from too so if you wanted to gift a couple of people they would be able to have completely different experiences.

I was drawn to the driving ones because driving is relatively new to my sisters and I think that would be very exciting for them. There is however a number of other experience days that they offer like water sports and flying etc. Track days offer experiences all up and down the country so you won’t have to travel far and they even offer track experiences for juniors and I think these would be amazing for young girls to try out whether they are ‘into cars’ or not. I know that driving a supercar when I was a teenager would have been mind-blowing!

I know my sisters really well and I know they would love doing a driving experience so it makes me wonder why these types of gifts are aimed mainly at men. When looking got gift days on popular gift sites the “For him” and “For her” sections make me a little mad because I have to search both categories when looking for gifts for anybody. I think it’s important to choose something that the person will enjoy and remember forever, not what society thinks is an appropriate gift for a woman.

I think these types of gifts that are a little bit different are honestly the best kind, I think a lot of people will be surprised about how much the women in their lives will enjoy doing something different and having a once in a lifetime experience that they will never forget.
